Spanish chemical-pharmaceutical group ESTEVE invests heavily in the research and development (R&D) of new formulations and commercialises medicines and innovative formulations to achieve a high level of excellence in the healthcare market.
The company has recently upgraded a pilot plant at the Martorelles site to help the scaling up of the R&D processes to develop and accurately calibrate its pharmaceutical formulations. When seeking equipment for a new pilot plant, ESTEVE required specialist separation equipment that would improve screening accuracy of pharmaceutical granules.
After consulting with Russell Finex representatives at an exhibition, Russell Finex analysed the product characteristics and recommended the Finex 22” grading sieve to fulfil the criteria laid out by ESTEVE. After successful trials were conducted, ESTEVE acquired two Finex 22in machines with Vibrasonic® Deblinding Systems to grade its pharmaceutical granules after they have been processed through a fluid bed dryer. The machines were supplied in the high-quality stainless steel, and with Russell Finex’s specialist polishing techniques, a crevice-free finish was provided.
For almost 85 years Russell Finex has supplied the pharmaceutical industry with innovative screening equipment.
