Industrial sieving solution for pharmaceutical powders

With the installation of Russell Finex’s high-performance sieving solution, a major pharmaceutical company optimizes its pharmaceutical production line

A leading Indian pharmaceutical company plans to develop and revolutionize the pharmaceutical and drugs industry throughout the Indian subcontinent. The company have nine manufacturing facilities across India, six of which focus on formulation and combination processes and three on processing active pharmaceutical ingredients (APIs.)

Recently, the company sought to expand one of the plants – which is already manufacturing general oral solids – to include the production of oncology oral solids and injectables. The new production line required a high-capacity screening solution to ensure that the highest quality and consistency of final products was achieved, and as such the company turned to Russell Finex for a solution.

With 85 years’ experience working with the pharmaceutical industry, Russell Finex assessed the requirements and recommended the industry renowned Russell Compact Sieve® as the ultimate solution to check-screen the pharmaceutical powders. The Russell Compact Sieve® is the most hygienic machine of its kind, with an easy to clean and strip down design without the need for tools, all stainless-steel contact parts, and no bug-trap areas. The sieve delivers many additional benefits including high containment – protecting operators from exposure to harmful dust and fumes – low noise and maintenance, and a compact design to enable installation in areas of limited headroom.

The sieve is fitted with the Russell Easy-Clean Magnetic Separator™ to remove any ferrous contamination that is small enough to pass through the mesh screen. A hygienic, crevice-free design ensures perfect cleaning, whilst open-ended magnetic bars enable any ferrous contamination to be removed easily and effectively.

With the installation of a 600mm diameter Russell Compact Sieve®, the company was able to meet the high level of demand for the new product, whilst ensuring product quality was not compromised.
