Sieving Pharmaceutical Granules

A client from the pharmaceutical industry required a sieving machine to remove fine particulate from a spheroid, granular, drug product.

Linear Sieving

A spheroid, granular, drug product was fed by hand from stainless steel scoops and discharged directly into lined drums.

After trials a Segregator 42 was found to be the most suitable machine. It allowed the good product to pass down the screen and the fines to pass through easily.

The motion of the machine providing gentle lift to the product allowing it to rise up slightly from the mesh to prevent blinding. The throughput quantity was such that the machine easily coped and required no restriction by weir plates.

Sievmaster Segregator Range

The Segregator uses a pair of vibratory motors to move product along a large rectangular mesh screen in a linear direction. The larger surface area is especially useful for de-dusting, de-watering, and screening delicate product.
