Lightweight pharmaceutical interface for in-line particle sizing probe
December 8, 2009
user interface for the in-line particle size measurement probe, simplifies the
system’s use as a tool for continuous monitoring of granulation, spray drying
and fluidized bed operations, for example. The unit is
designed specifically to fulfill GMP requirements for pharmaceutical production.
It can be supplied alone or in combination with pharma, verification kit for
checking measurement accuracy, and material traceability, a unit with highly
polished contact surfaces supplied with material traceability documentation. Together,
the instrument simplifies regulatory compliance, streamlining adoption and
ongoing use within the pharmaceutical sector. It works either in a network
(Ethernet) or on a standalone basis to provide the data security and complete
audit trail necessary to meet the industry’s need for exemplary record keeping.
Key features of the new release include: detailed user access control with
flexible user levels; user and password management; and safe storage for
measurement values and settings in an SQL-database. Capable of measuring as
many as 20,000 particles per second, the unit is lightweight, compact and easy
to install in either a process line or a vessel. It is suitable for monitoring
gravity fed, pneumatically conveyed and fluidised streams with particles in the
size range 50 – 6000 microns, travelling at velocities up to 50 m/s.
