PMS Container Mixer®, which is normally known as intermediate
bulk container (IBC) mixing system, is a mixing system that is widely used
within pharmaceutical manufacturing process. This type of mixer can be used
as storage, transport, and mixing vessel, which reduces the complication of
the conventional mixing processes that require a number of containers for
the whole process.
Theory of Operation
PMS Container Mixer’s mixing system is the optimal
solution for applications that require high levels of product purity or
those involving hazardous, corrosive, or toxic ingredients, since the
container completely sealed mixing chamber, providing an fundamentally
safe, emission-free processing environment.
While mixing, a well-secured container is rotated in a
supporting frame around diagonal axis. The angular arrangement and rotation
allows the product to be mixed within three-dimensional environment, without
using any moving mixing tool (Tumbling System). This mechanism allows the
mixing process to be done with very low shear force. As a result, the
product characteristics remain almost unchangeable. In addition, the speed
of the rotation can also be adjusted. Therefore, the process can be adapted
to match various product characteristics, including granulated substances.
Before mixing, the container will be placed
horizontally into mechanical clamp. Then the container will be lifted by the
pneumatic (for medium size) or hydraulic (for large size). After mixing, the
container with mixed product will be moved down and remove. The new
container can be placed immediately. This allow increasing capacity when
compare to conventional tumbling system.
