Stable Micro Systems Ltd

Stable Micro Systems, a leading designer and manufacturer of materials testing instrumentation for over 18 years, will be displaying its revolutionary Powder Flow Analyser. The instrument provides an accurate and reliable method of measuring the flow characteristics of dry and wet powders. Supported by our worldwide distributor network, manufacturers can avoid typical problems such as batch and source variation, caking during storage, bridging in hoppers and sticking during production. The TA.XTplus Texture Analyser can also measure the hardness of granules or micro spheres, tablet disintegration and swelling and will perform mucoadhesion tests. Visit our stand for a revealing demonstration of these two products and discuss your testing requirements with our product specialists.

Mettler-Toledo AutoChem

METTLER TOLEDO provides product and service solutions to enable faster development of robust processes for better chemical and pharmaceutical products. The METTLER TOLEDO worldwide team of technical sales and support experts serve our customers in the Pharmaceutical, Specialty and Fine Chemical, Petroleum and Petrochemicals, and Polymer industries.

METTLER TOLEDO FBRM and PVM technologies have been the world leaders for in-process particle characterization for over 20 years. These technologies enable scientists and engineers to use real-time particle and droplet distribution measurement to make more informed, faster decisions. Knowledge of particle performance gained through FBRM and PVM technologies can cut months from development times, maximize process throughput, and optimize product quality. The application of FBRM and PVM ensures targeted particle distributions are achieved, robust repeatable processes are designed, downstream cycle times are maximized, and failures at pilot and manufacturing scale are eliminated. FBRM and PVM systems are available for every development stage from lab through scale-up and process, ensuring consistent data throughout the life of a process.

High shear granulators produce notoriously cohesive and adhesive particles that will coat the walls of the vessel and any instrumentation that gets in its way. The newly introduced FBRM C35 design uses a patented mechanical wiper blade to maintain a clear view of the process under the most extreme conditions.
