Original Press Release:
Small-Batch, Quick-Clean Sifter can be Autoclaved
MILLBURN, NJ-A new Ultra Sanitary Mini Centri-Sifter(TM) centrifugal sifter for screening small batches of pharmaceutical powders and other contamination-sensitive products, can be disassembled rapidly, and sanitized manually or in an autoclave.
In less than three minutes, the unit's cylindrical screen/spout assembly and feed screw/paddle assembly can be removed with three hand knobs, and the screening chamber with one bolt, providing access to sanitize all material contact surfaces.
As material is gravity-fed into the unit, rotating helical paddles accelerate particles, continuously propelling them against the cylindrical screen and through screen apertures. On-size material discharges through the first of two outlets, into a storage vessel or processing equipment. The paddle assembly, which does not contact the screen, also serves to break-up agglomerated materials. Oversized particles unable to pass through the apertures, exit through the end of the screen cylinder and fall through a second outlet for discarding or re-processing.
Cylindrical screens are offered in woven nylon, monofilament, wire mesh stainless steel, perforated plate and stainless steel wedge wire, to accommodate a wide range of pharmaceutical products.
The unit is constructed of stainless steel with continuous welds ground and polished to FDA as well as 3A, BISSC and other sanitary standards.
Other pharmaceutical processing equipment produced by the company includes vibratory screeners and circular fluid bed dryers and coolers.
