Milling Equipment for API Pharmaceuticals

Trusted milling, size reduction, and processing equipment to tightly control particle sizes within the Active Pharmaceutical Ingredient (API) process steps.


The complexities of making APIs

In new drug development, particle size is crucial in affecting the properties of bio-availability and stability. The more potent molecules in development need to achieve the narrowest of Particle Size Distribution (PSDs).

Operator safety is a priority due to the potency of Pharma API materials. Ease of cleaning and maintenance without risk can be a challenge without the right processing equipment.


API processing equipment

Our size reduction equipment offers safer processing with OEL levels that meet the strictest industry standards required for API Processing.

In our decades of experience working in the pharmaceutical industry, we have enabled clients to achieve smaller particle sizes & tighter particle size distributions than are possible using standard conical mills, hammer mills, or pin mills. This reduces waste for a better bottom line.
