Process Ideas

  • Unloading a Fluid Bed Dryer
    Unloading a Fluid Bed Dryer

    Vacuum transfer can be used to convey material from an FBD after the drying process is complete (shown here with an in-line mill for improved PSD). Learn More >

  • Dust Collection from a Tablet Press
    Dust Collection from a Tablet Press

    Cyclone is designed to be connected to the extraction line of a tablet press, intercepting waste powder post-compression. Learn More >

  • Powder Flow Control System
    Powder Flow Control System

    The system uses rotary valves, level probes and breather socks to control flow of powder between floors. This prevents over-filling of the lower-level machine. Learn More >

  • Vacuum Transfer from Drum to Process Machine
    Vacuum Transfer from Drum to Process Machine

    The conveyor sucks material from a ground floor drum, up into the Uni-Vac hopper. Once full, the outlet valve opens and discharges the material into the machine. Learn More >

  • Isolator Milling
    Isolator Milling

    The Uni-Mill is suitable for isolator integration using our 'through-the-wall' design. This mounts the milling head inside the isolator, with motor and controls external. Learn More >

  • Lifting IBC above Tablet Press
    Lifting IBC above Tablet Press

    The Uni-Hoist HES can be used to raise and dock IBCs above a process machine for discharging powder directly into the loading hopper. Learn More >

  • Vacuum Transfer into a Vessel
    Vacuum Transfer into a Vessel

    Vacuum conveying can be used to transfer material from a ground-floor drum into a vessel or tank. Learn More >

  • Raise and Lower of Mixer
    Raise and Lower of Mixer

    The Uni-Hoist can be used for the simple raise and lower of mixers into vessels.

  • Loading Empty Capsules into Encapsulation Machine
    Loading Empty Capsules into Encapsulation Machine

    The CapsuJet C20 loads empty capsules up into the capsule filling machine from the hopper at ground level. Learn More >

  • Direct Loading (into Blender)
    Direct Loading (into Blender)

    Where the receiving vessel is vacuum rated, material can be directly loaded by pulling a vacuum on the blender, with a filter hopper before the pump. Learn More >

  • IBC to IBC Milling
    IBC to IBC Milling

    By positioning a bin above the mill, and another bin below the mill, product is released from the top IBC, milled, and then passes directly into the bottom IBC. Learn More >

  • Wet Milling (Post-Granulation)
    Wet Milling (Post-Granulation)

    Milling after granulation increases the surface area of the material. This enables a faster, more consistent drying process downstream. Learn More >

  • Dust Collection from Capsule Filling Machine
    Dust Collection from Capsule Filling Machine

    The cyclone can alternatively be connected to the extraction line of a capsule filling machine, intercepting waste powder before it reaches the central extraction system.

  • Vacuum Transfer into a High Shear Mixer
    Vacuum Transfer into a High Shear Mixer

    Vacuum conveyors can be used as a dust-tight method to transfer powder from ground floor level into a high shear mixer. Learn More >

  • Duplex Hoist for Fast IBC Changeover
    Duplex Hoist for Fast IBC Changeover

    The Uni-Hoist (HES Duplex) uses two independent lifting platforms; this minimises downtime as the empty bin can be replaced while the full bin is discharging. Learn More >

  • In-Line Vacuum Milling
    In-Line Vacuum Milling

    In-line vacuum transfer through a conical mill for achieving automated, dust-tight milling (same process can be achieved with an under-driven conical mill). Learn More >

  • Milling into Drum
    Milling into Drum

    The conical mill can be hand-fed allowing immediate discharge into the drum below (various methods of dust containment are available). Learn More >

  • Sack-Tip Station Feeding Vacuum Conveyor
    Sack-Tip Station Feeding Vacuum Conveyor

    The bag is emptied into the Sack Tip Station, where the powder is then sucked away by the vacuum conveyor to a downstream process. Learn More >

  • Table Top Laboratory Scale Milling
    Table Top Laboratory Scale Milling

    The Uni-Mill M05-U is suitable for table-top use, such as R&D or lab scale applications. Product can be milled into bags, drums etc (containment available). Learn More >

  • Transferring Capsules After Filling
    Transferring Capsules After Filling

    The CapsuJet FCC can be used to transfer filled capsules from an encapsulation machine to a downstream container or other process machine. Learn More >

  • ‘Blend-in-the-Bin’ Blenders
    ‘Blend-in-the-Bin’ Blenders

    Maximise productivity with ‘Blend-in-the-Bin’ (as opposed to conventional double cone or V-Blender), enabling immediate batch switchover without washdown. Learn More >

  • Drum Tipper Docking onto Isolator
    Drum Tipper Docking onto Isolator

    The Drum Tipper provides repeatable and accurate docking of drums onto the inflatable seal port of the isolator. Learn More >

  • Integrated Pack-Off System
    Integrated Pack-Off System

    In-line processes, such as sieving and milling, can be integrated with pack-off systems, including dosing valve, metal detection, continuous liner and weigh scales.

  • Delumper before Milling
    Delumper before Milling

    A LumpBreaker can be used to pre-break agglomerated material (e.g. metformin) to aid downstream milling. Learn More >

  • Docking Alignment between Mill and Upstream / Downstream
    Docking Alignment between Mill and Upstream / Downstream

    The Uni-Connect silicone sleeve compensates for the docking alignment between two pieces of machinery (e.g. outlet feeding conical mill inlet as pictured). Learn More >
