Container blending is recognised as being the most cost-effective and productive method of blending granules and powders in the pharmaceutical manufacturing process. Reduced loading and unloading times, reduced cleaning times — both machinery and room — improved containment and batch integrity have established container (IBC) blending as the pharmaceutical industry’s technology of choice.
R&D, small-scale and full-scale pharmaceutical production blenders provide simple transfer of process technology during scale-up, thus minimizing process validation activity.
This is fully supported by GEA's detailed research programme and testing facilities. Hoist- and pedestal-mounted versions are available as well as through-the-wall designs, which offer significant room layout benefits.
