Mitigating Dust Explosion Risks in Solid Powder Processing

When reduced to fine powders, some organic compounds are transformed from merely combustible to dangerously explosive. Clearly, dust control is a crucial aspect of safe pharmaceutical manufacturing. Do you know how to minimize dust explosion hazards? Learn how Quadro Engineering helps companies comply with industrial regulations for solid powder processing by configuring processing equipment d for safe operation in an explosive environment.

Tablet Manufacturing Process

Tablets are the most popular dosage form of pharmaceuticals. High shear mixers/granulators used in tablet manufacturing often cause agglomerations that result in uneven drying. By uniformly dispersing the wet product, the highly versatile Quadro® Comil® eliminates lumps, thus decreasing drying time and cutting manufacturing costs. Comil® also delivers consistent, homogeneous dispersal of pigment agents, and can be used for the size reduction of compacted slugs after a roll compactor.
