Customised Pharmaceutical Powder Sifter Installed at PSL

Powder Systems Limited (PSL) holds a wealth of experience engineering containment processes, supplying high-quality customised process equipment to worldwide pharmaceutical, chemical, and laboratory industries.

When a leading pharmaceutical producer sought a customised screening solution for pharmaceuticals, PSL combined expertise with Russell Finex to provide a customised solution.

A contained screening solution was required to enable the customer to manufacture potent compounds to current good manufacturing practice (CGMP) standards. PSL combined its own high-containment isolator with the Russell Compact Sieve®, providing a unique, safe, usable solution to safely sieve hazardous material, capable of processing compounds with an occupational exposure limit of less than 1.0μg/m3.

PSL’s isolator has a half-body suit which allows unrestricted access to the interior of the chamber, whilst ensuring the operator remains safely clear of direct contact with the product. Due to its compact design, the Russell Compact Sieve® was the smart choice for installation inside the isolator.

This powder screening system for pharmaceuticals provides accurate, high-capacity screening at less than half the size of traditional industrial sieves, accurately removing all contamination. A customised version was manufactured on this occasion, with the sieve motor needing to be outside of the isolator, for explosion risk purposes. This was therefore placed in a control cabinet with a plate separating the motor from the sieve.

Established in 1934, Russell Finex has a wealth of experience in supplying innovative pharmaceutical screening and separation solutions. Contact Russell Finex to discover how customised separation solutions can meet your exact requirements.
