Rapid Mixer Granulator

Applications
Rapid Mixer Granulators (RMG) are primarily used for tablet manufacturing process  which requires homogenous mixing, controlled granule size and at the same time assuring great reduction in processing time. These apart, cGMP models demand utmost hygiene standard that can only be achieved on RMG.

Working Principle & Construction
The bowl has a flat circular base and the diameter of the bowl at the mid-region is comparatively larger in size, gradually tapering off towards the top in the shape of a cone. This particular configuration helps in proper mixing of cohesive powders.

Cohesive powders tend to develop lumps during the mixing process, and are taken care of by a high speed granulator (chopper). This chopper is horizontally inserted through the bowl at side of the bowl bottom to break the lumps thus formed and blend the powder with great effectiveness.

Spinning of material close to the bottom of the mixing bowl and chopper blade sets the entire mixing process in whirling and tumbling motion. Different types of chopper blades are provided for different application. Granulating blades rotate at very high speed of about 2800-3000 rpm for intense mixing.

GMP models are constructed with SS 316 quality. Electrical control panel consisting of switchgears, fuses, motor starter, push buttons, ammeters, indicating lamps, pressure switch etc. is enclosed in stainless sheet metal panel and mini PLC that shows operation in progress in MIMIC.

Models available to handle 10 kg. batch to 1000 kg. of product.

Working Principle
It is a self-contained portable unit, which is used for a wide range of dry & wet granulating, pulverizing, mixing, shredding and chopping etc. at a high speed. The unit consists of AISI 304/316 quality hopper, processing chamber & hammer blades, suitable screen, reversible switch, DOL starter, four-speed arrangement, container & pillar mounted on base plate with castor wheels for easy mobility. It operates on the working principle of variable force that swing the beaters having both knife & impact edges, rotating within a selected screen to get the desired size reduction.

The material is to be charged into the hopper when it moves into the periphery of the screen with the help of the knife & impact edges.  The material passes through the screen, radially & tangentially, thus avoiding the choking of material in the chamber & rise in temperature. The processed material gets collected in the collection container below the screen chamber.

CO MILL:

Product Description
The Co Mill is used for a wide range of products and applications. It can be used for mixing and dispersing, size reducing, separating and bulk density adjustment.

The typical particle size distribution (PSD) is tightly contained with the 1 mm Sieve to 0.25 mm Sieve range (18 mesh to 120 mesh), depending on the screen and impeller choices. Traditional milling technologies do not have the same control over the PSD resulting in more fines & thus causing more of dust whereas in a Co Mill the fines generated are much lesser & no dustings of materials thus giving a better and efficient milling results.

Benefits & Highlights

Low speed design allowing for inherently gentle action on the product resulting in optimum particle granularity, low heat, low noise, minimal fines, consistent, high quality end product, can be used on heat sensitive products, high capacities, can be flood fed, fully customizable to many different applications and process stream

Advantages
As compared to other Milling Equipment as follows:

  • The Output in Co Mill is very near to the size of the sieve used approx 80% – 90% where as in Multi Mill it is 1/3 of the sieve used.
  • The Fines generated are on a lower side as compared to other mills.
  • Heat generation in Co Mill is comparatively very low as it works as forced pressure.
  • Other Mills have more of dusting as compared to Co Mill.
  • Drive element is reduced in Co Mill as it is direct driven.
  • Output in Co Mill is more than in other mills.

FLUID BED DRYER :

Applications
Fluid Bed Dryers (FBD) are primarily used in almost all chemical, pharmaceutical, food, dyestuff and other process industries to dry materials by fluidization with hot and / or dehumidified air, which creates a turbulence in the wet product (not totally liquid) while flowing through it.

Working Principle
The atmospheric air is sucked in the dryer through 5/10 micron filter by efficient dynamically balanced fan driven by an electric motor.
The clean air then passes over the electric heaters / steam or radiator provided with controller. The hot air passes through the product and fluidization dries the product. Dryer is provided with dehumidifier (Chilled water system) at the inlet so as to dry the product at low temperature under fluidized condition. The blower speed is controlled by AC frequency drive so as to control the fluidization avoiding choking of the filter bag. A raking system is provided to avoid lump formation in the container to achieve uniform fluidization and uniform drying. A model with complete automation and PLC, automatic bag shaking and with MIMIC is also offered.

The drying time depends on various factors such as physical properties of material, moisture content, type of moisture (free or inherent or water of crystallization), drying temperature etc. For example, the crystalline product can be dried faster than amorphous product containing same percentage of moisture at same temperature.

Unique HAV Features
HAV has its own continuous R & D program to supply better-designed drying system. Our clients in pharmaceutical industries in particular have experienced in the recent past various problems while drying specific products, as per US-FDA requirements. The standard tray dryers have circulation fans, mesh guards, partitions etc inside the drying cabinet itself, which are cumbersome in maintaining the clean operation & avoid contamination.

HAV has, therefore, designed a dryer suitable for cGMP requirement wherein main body of the dryer is generally mounted on the floor while the heating arrangement with HEPA filter and other pre-filters are mounted on the top floor or the adjacent room. The hot air inlet pipe is brought in the room with insulation & cladding & fixed on the dryer from the top-side of the drying unit. The hot air pipe is connected in such a way that the air gets equally distributed all over the chamber and the same is exhausted from the opposite side, but from the top of the dryer.

The body of the dryer is designed is such a way that the side wall of the dryer on which the air from the pipe hits, is tapered towards bottom with specific angle & same is on the opposite side. Thus the uniform distribution of the air inside the chamber is maintained by adjusting the damper of the exhaust. The exhaust of the dryer is also provided with a fine filter, which prevents any foreign particles entering from outside atmosphere at low pressure.  The exhaust pipe is fixed at the top of dryer & in the opposite side of the inlet pipe & is insulated with SS cladding. The temperature is controlled by pneumatically or electrically actuated,  steam controlled valve with I/P converter & PID controller.

HAV also supplies dryer with force circulation for the standard tray by providing blower at the inlet. The dryer is supplied with electrical as well as steam heating arrangement in the same dryer according to the requirement.
