The Parsum principle: Particle measurement directly within the process
The Parsum Inline Particle Probes make it possible to carry out inline monitoring of all granulation processes and allows for the real-time visualisation of granulate growth in batch processes or constant product quality in continuous processes. Critical parameters for these processes, such as spray rate, temperature, air volume, contact pressure, rotational speed, binder amounts, spray pressure, etc., can be controlled and optimised for the specific product. In continuous processes, trends and quality fluctuations can be detected at an early stage.
The consistent development of accessories for process adaptation – the so-called “process interface” has been the principal factor in allowing Parsum to establish itself as the market leader in the area of particle measurement in Fluidised Bed and High-Shear Granulation processes. With the new inline dispersers, Parsum probes can perform measurements even in very high-load, wet and dusty processes.
There are in-line dispersers with low shearing forces ensuring a sensitive treatment of the granules, while particles below 100 µm can be dispersed with high shearing forces, such as found in milling processes. Thus, sticky, wet and most adhesive particles can be separated as needed.
This means that the growth of particles in fluidized beds or high shear processes can be tracked in real-time. A moisture content of 20 % and more do not interfere the measurement. Even if layers of powder settle on the surface and the windows of the processing chamber, the optics of the probe remain free, due to an elaborate beam design. In continuous processes this enables cleaning intervals up to several weeks and months.
Parsum has installed more than 450 measuring systems in 25 countries to date. In addition to global pharmaceutical and food companies and the chemical sector, its customer base also includes numerous universities and research institutions. In several R&D projects carried out in cooperation with customers, plant manufacturers and universities; Parsum has put a lot of investment into the advanced development of its particle probes in recent years.
