Best practice advice for particle sizing wet granulation

Benefit from over 40 years of experience of milling and particle sizing for pharmaceutical applications.

Advice for wet granulation

What are the benefits of wet conditioning prior to drying powders?

While looking into ways to improve overall product quality and reduce the production of fines, a pharmaceutical manufacturer experimented with various methods of conditioning the wet granulate at the start of the manufacturing process.

This blog will explore why wet mass conditioning can be advantageous in Pharma OSD manufacturing.

Best practice for milling heat-sensitive materials

Choosing the Correct Mill Screen for your product

To ensure that you achieve high-performance milling, you must choose the correct conical mill screen for your application, especially if you are working with heat-sensitive materials.

When milling heat sensitive products, it can be difficult to stay within the strict temperature parameters, especially for heat-sensitive materials, when you have high output ambitions.

To increase output with efficient milling practices, your need to ensure you find the optimum balance between milling size reduction and heat generation. An increase in temperature can lead to product degradation, reduced ingredient effectiveness, and in extreme cases waste. To learn more about milling with heat-sensitive materials please read our application bulletin.

Pharmaceutical Solutions with the Comil

Discover how Cone Milling (or Conical Milling) can become an effective method of milling for pharmaceutical drug manufacturing.

Conical Milling Best Practice

How to scale up to larger Comil units

Quadro invented the original Comil cone mill over 40 years ago and has since spent decades developing the design of Comil machines.

Using our vast experience to further our application and design knowledge, we have continued to serve the milling industry with effective and efficient solutions. Thanks to its revolutionary design, the Comil was a first of its kind when it was launched, and has since developed into the best processing standard adopted by the world’s leading pharmaceutical manufacturers.

Read the blog to learn more about the Comil, conical milling, and the typical application uses. You’ll also discover efficient methods to improve cleanability, scalability and safe product handling.

Cleaning Techniques

Cleaning best-practice for milling & particle size reduction equipment used in pharmaceutical manufacturing

Quadro's team of milling experts explain cleaning process development, methodology and options for sampling as part of cleaning validation.

Pharmaceutical manufacturers cannot afford to waste product ingredients that have become contaminated from dirty equipment, or worse have their factory shutdown for cleaning failures. Read our article on cleaning process development and methodology to develop your best practice and select the relevant equipment for your process.

Particle Size Reduction Best Practice

Efficiently Reduce Particle Size in Nutraceutical and Food Manufacturing

Manufacturers of powder-based food and nutraceutical products need to ensure that materials flow through the production process efficiently.

To achieve this, most deploy some method of size reduction to process their dried powders into a specific form ready for downstream equipment. The reason for this is to create a powder product that is flowable, free from agglomerations and with the correct particle size distribution. 

Discover how The Quadro Comil and FlexSift help manufacturers achieve ensure equally sized particles.

Conical Milling Solutions for Dairy Food Manufacturers

Discover how manufacturers of dairy products such as ice cream and yogurts are commonly looking for new ways to differentiate their existing product lines.

This often requires adding in new, colorful, or uniquely flavored decorative toppings or inclusions within the recipe, which typically means handling irregularly shaped ingredients that are often heat-sensitive.

Read our Application Bulletin to discover how the Quadro Comil offers the ideal solution for re-sizing particles without creating fines due to low speed and low energy conical milling.
