When you’re dealing with narrow particle size requirements, you need a partner with the right equipment as well as expertise and experience. At Micron Technologies, we’ve got everything it takes to micronize compounds such as inhalation grade powders and active ingredients used in soft Gel capsule suspensions.
The right choice for the job
Located in our Darford facility, our multi-processing classifier mill can provide unique solutions for clients because of its ability to both micronize and classify a powder. It provides a tighter particle size distribution than traditional micronizing or milling techniques. That’s why it’s usually perfect for inhalation grade powders and for any formulation where very fine or large particles must be minimized. This mill can be used for potent compounds as well when combined with our customized containment system.
Here’s how it works
Traditional spiral jet micronizers rely on centrifugal forces to control the particle size. Our multi-processor uses an integrated ultrafine classifier wheel that ensures very accurate control when the particles exit the mill.
Typical application area All pharmaceutical materials requireing narrow particle size distribution, including inhalation products, suspensions and modified release applications.
Typical size range D97 of 4μm, d50 approximately 2μm
Batch size From 400g and up
Micronize d50 of 1μm to 30μm
Mill d50 of 10μm to 250μm
Classify Split a powder into two fractions
All the above functions will allow a narrow distribution of particle size, as an example, a d50 of 5μm may have a d10 of 1μm and a d90 of 7μm*
*Example only, distribution may vary with material properties
