The final stage of many API manufacturing processes is a powder sizing or milling process. This process can utilize a wide variety of sizing equipment. The milling process is sometimes integrated into the packout process during the final drying stage, but often this is an stand-alone process. Common challenges with this process are associated with the handling of the dry powders. The transfer and milling process can be very dusty and may require inerting depending on the properties of the powder.
The Rheo Drum Inverter with the integrated milling system can reduce an additional handling step and dramatically reduce the airborne dust levels of the operation. By integrating the mill and utlizing our EmptyAssist feature, the milling process can be made much more efficient and ensures that all the product gets removed from the drum.
If you are milling back into a drum or bin, our Mobile Ventilation Sleeve provides a very cost effective dust control solution.
