Pneumatic conveying
 
Q: Can we use a pneumatic conveyor to transfer oral solid dosage formulations without creating segregation, particle degradation, or containment issues?
 
A: Nick Hayes, Volkmann, says:
 
imageA common misconception in the pharmaceutical industry is that pneumatic conveying leads to segregation and other issues, but this idea is based on outdated technology. While segregation is a major issue when transferring oral solid dosage formulations (OSDFs) between manufacturing operations, vacuum pneumatic conveying can resolve this issue while preventing particle degradation and safely containing the formulation.

Reduce powder processing risks when outsourcing manufacturing
 
Roger A. Barnum, Jenike & Johanson
 
When outsourcing manufacturing for an oral solid dosage product, brand owners generally minimize risk by ensuring that the contract manufacturing organization's (CMO's) unit operations have the desired capability and have been tested with the target formulation and that the area has sufficient containment and environmental controls. They also typically confirm that the CMO's site leadership team has a demonstrated commitment to quality, analytics, and regulatory compliance. An area of risk that is often overlooked, however, is powder transfer between unit operations.
