Pharma manufacturers know that particle size is crucial in affecting the properties of bioavailability and stability, especially when developing new drugs and treatments. If manufacturers want some molecules to be more potent then they need to be able to achieve the finest of Particle Size Distribution (PSDs).
The Quadro team has vast experience in this area and has successfully enabled clients to achieve smaller particle sizes & tighter particle size distributions than are possible using standard competitive conical mills, hammer mills, or pin mills. This equates to effective products, reduced waste, and increased profit margins.
Leading manufacturers trust Quadro's pharmaceutical milling equipment for their OSD wet or dry granulation sizing. Our range of machines is designed to be suitable for all process stages, from research to lab and onto full-scale production. No matter the size of the task, a Quadro mill lives up to the strictest quality control standards require for pharma equipment.
As well as high product quality, our team appreciates the importance of reliability from your equipment in addition to having the ability to produce accurately without downtime or waste means a better return on investment.
Our customers can be assured that Quadro Mills are manufactured to be both fast and flexible. Our experience in design and manufacture ensures you focus on the bottom line and financial payback for your equipment purchase.
Our vast experience with Pharmaceutical milling and delumping means you can select the correct equipment for the job. From the screen selection and mesh size through to speed and capacity, our team is on-hand to provide best practice advice.
Quadro Engineering has been offering support to Pharmaceutical companies since pioneering the original conical milling concept in 1976 with the design of the original Quadro® Comil®.
We are specialists in a number of areas including OSD uniform size reduction of powders, APIs - fine grinding, conditioning of raw materials as well as Security screening and deagglomeration.
When all the intensive research and development is completed on a new pharmaceutical drug, the next step on the road to manufacturing is to identify the optimal way to process the new active pharmaceutical ingredient (API) into a suitable dosage form. Critical to this step is ensuring tightly controlled particle size distributions.
