Unique double-deck hygiene sifter guarantees the consistency of tablets after coating stage by Russell Finex
During the production of pharmaceutical goods, hygiene, quality and consistency of the final product is of utmost importance. From screening excipients and active pharmaceutical ingredients and granules to ensuring consistent tablet size and finish, sanitary processing equipment is used to guarantee maximum quality throughout production.
Due to the evolution of the pharmaceutical industry, updates to sanitation regulations and increases in production demands are common. Therefore, manufacturers are continually introducing new technologies and processes to optimize production and meet hygiene standards. However, it is often difficult to upgrade existing process lines with new machinery. Factors such as size and access limitations can make the integration of new equipment a challenge for production managers.
