ECerS 2013 – Easy to clean

ECerS 2013 – Easy to clean – Third day at ECerS in Limoges, and today the keyword is “Easy to clean”! This morning we have had several discussions with researchers that have big problem cleaning their spray dryers for to aviod contamination of the material.

By using our Freeze Granulation technology, Lab-scale Granulator LS-2, it’s possible to granulate 10 unique slurries in one afternoon, including cleaning, and also avoiding contamination.

Please contact us and we will further discuss the opportunities with Freeze Granulation in your powder system and read more on technology and a Granulation Test of your powder system.

Utilization of Freeze Granulation for different applications

Freeze granulation can be utilized on lab scale as well on production scale with equality in granule properties and high yield for many applications. Besides large quantities also very small experimental batches (50-100 ml slip) can easily be processed. The equipment is easy to clean, enabling use of water insoluble polymers (latexes) as binder and running of several different batches during one day. Water is the preferred liquid medium but it is also possible to use and recycle organic solvents (freeze point > -25°C).

Technical specification lab-scale freeze granulator (LS-2)

PowderPro AB provides equipment for Freeze Granulation in two versions, LS-2 (see photo) and LS-6. The maximum granulation capacity of LS-2 is 2 litres slurry per hour and for LS-6 6 litres slurry per hours that typically correspond to ca 2 and 6 kg dry powder respectively.

LS-2 and LS-6 consists of a slip container with a stirrer, a pump for the slip, a spray nozzle, a regulator for compressed air and an insulated chamber for spraying and granule collection. Technical Specification LS-2

Besides the granulator, a freeze dryer (see photo of Lyovac GT2 below) with sufficient capacity is required and can be provided. Technical transfer including set-up of equip­ment and training of personnel is recomm­ended and offered upon request.
