PMS Container Mixer®

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.
