Pilot Scale and Production Equipment
At the heart of every Microfluidizer® pilot-scale homogenizer is a unique fixed-geometry interaction chamber constructed from rugged ceramic or diamond. This crucial feature is engineered to maximize the sheer forces generated as your fluids are forced through the homogenizer under intense pressures.
Select your desired pressure, from 2,500 to 30,000 psi, and a single-acting intensifier pump amplifies the hydraulic pressure to the appropriate level. This, in turn, imparts the desired pressure to the product stream. The Microfluidics fixed-geometry chamber is the proprietary feature that enables our clients to experience on-target values and seamless scaleup — from small investigatory pilot runs to full-scale production runs. Guaranteed.
Pilot Scale M-110EH
It all starts here. Think of the Pilot Scale M-110EH as a miniature version of the Production Scale M-700 Series. Long before you’re ready to go to market, you can rely on the Pilot Scale M-110EH to achieve operating pressures up to 30,000 psi. Process a wide variety of investigatory fluids, including oil-in-water emulsions, solids-in-liquid suspensions, and cell disruptions. The Microfluidics proprietary diamond fixed-geometry interaction chamber ensures your sub-stances will experience maximum energy-per-unit fluid volume, resulting in uniform submicron particle and droplet sizes. Even the most challenging yeast and plant cell disruptions can be achieved within one or two passes.
Production Scale M-700 Series
Once you’ve achieved suitable pilot batches, scale up seamlessly to full production with a companion homogenizer from the M-700 Series. Also featuring our unique fixed-geometry diamond interaction chamber, and capable of operating up to 30,000 psi, the M-700 series allows for smooth scaleup of chemical processes.
Pharmaceutical Scale-Up & Process Validation
The process of transferring the results of lab-scale R&D to the pilot plant and finally to production scale is a critical link in the pharmaceutical production chain. Microfluidics combines unrivaled process knowledge with proven reliable technology to enhance pharmaceutical scale-up. The result is a process scale-up that delivers:
- Increased process reliability
- Optimal production rates
- Fewer product defects
- Efficient pharmaceutical validation
The regulatory environment for pharmaceutical production has never been more demanding. Our experience in partnering with formulators, process engineers, validation specialists and QA personnel worldwide – as well as production managers – differentiates us from other pharmaceutical equipment manufacturers.
