How to get better grinding performance with pneumatic conveying
 
Gary Liu, DuPont says:
 
A well-designed vacuum pneumatic conveying system is essential to achieving top performance in many bulk solids grinding operations. This article explains how you can select a vacuum pneumatic conveying system to assist the operation of a hammer mill or fluidized-bed opposed-jet mill.
 
With many grinding mills—including roller mills, rotor mills, hammer mills, air-classifier mills, and fluidized-bed opposed-jet mills—successfully achieving the desired production throughput depends on help from a vacuum pneumatic conveying system. The system not only helps draw the material through the mill, but in some cases assists the mill in achieving the final product's desired particle size.
 
When a mill's production throughput is less than its design capacity, a poorly selected pneumatic conveying system is usually at fault, even when the system was supplied as part of the mill package. In some cases, an ineffective conveying system can reduce the mill's grinding capacity by as much as 50 percent. Yet it's hard to find published information on how to select an effective pneumatic conveying system for a grinding mill.
 
In this article, I'll try to fill this knowledge gap by looking at how to select a pneumatic conveying system for two of the most widely used mills in the pharmaceutical, chemical, and other industries: the hammer mill and the fluidized-bed opposed-jet mill.
 
To learn more about this topic, you can read the article "How to get better grinding performance with pneumatic conveying". You can also find articles under "Size reduction" in Tablets & Capsules' Article Archive.

Q: What criteria should my company use to select an outsourcing partner that can help us reach the formulation proof-of-concept stage more rapidly?
 
 
imageThe application of advanced high-throughput technologies to accelerate drug discovery has led to more-complex and challenging-to-formulate active pharmaceutical ingredient (API) candidates in the drug development pipeline. Also, the growing emphasis on patient-centric drug delivery solutions and improved medication adherence has created a need for drug products designed with patients' needs in mind. In addition to increasing complexity, pharmaceutical companies are facing mounting pressure to reduce the costs and time required for drug development.

Q: How can dietary supplement manufacturers avoid violations for GMP noncompliance?
 
 
 
imageIn the last decade, dietary supplement regulatory compliance has undergone significant change. The FDA has issued regulations requiring good manufacturing practices (GMPs) for all firms that manufacture, package, label, or hold dietary supplements (21 CFR Part 111) that consumers purchase in the US. Congress has approved additional regulatory requirements, including the Food Safety Modernization Act (FSMA), signed into law in January 2011.
