Ointment Mills for Pharmacy

Conventional Mixing vs. EXAKT Milling

Compounding EXAKT

A comparative study conducted at the University of Hamburg, Institute of Pharmacy in Hamburg Germany concluded that the quality of compounds processed with three roll mills is better than those processed with electric mixing systems.

  • Particle size is smaller.
  • Particle size distribution is narrow.
  • Ointment stability is better.
  • Temperatures do not increase significantly during processing.
  • Ointments are softer consistency with lower flow limits
  • Three roll mills allow for quality control during processing.

 

Substance processed with conventional mixing procedure: crystalline substances are still clearly visible.

Substance processed with an EXAKT three roll mill: regular and fine consistency of the substance

EXAKT Mills Get Results

EXAKT three ointment mills deliver results that are consistent and reproducible.

A comparative study conducted at the University of Hamburg, Institute of Pharmacy in Hamburg, Germany concluded that the quality of ointments processed with three roll mills is better than those processed with electric mixing systems. The study highlighted the following conclusions:

  • The particle size is smaller.
  • Particle size distribution is narrow.
  • Ointment stability is better.
  • Temperatures do not increase significantly during processing.
  • Ointments are softer consistency with lower flow limits.
  • Ointment mills allow for quality control during processing.

Ointment Mill Advantages

Three roll mill advantages

Only the ointment mill used in the dispersing process guarantees that 100% of the product will be passed through both shear zones.

  • The shear rate between the rollers is the decisive factor for the process.
  • This is determined by the roller spacing and the circumferential speed.
  • Agglomerates and powder clumps are broken up and homogenized.
  • The more controlled the energy input, the more precise the processing.

What does an ointment mill do?

An ointment mill utilizes high shear force to disperse active ingredients, and homogenize viscous materials.

Shear force is created by three horizontally positioned rollers rotating in opposite directions and at different speeds relative to each other.

The product is pulled through the gaps between the rollers. Active ingredients and powder clumps are broken up and homogenized, which removes grittiness and results in a high-quality topical.  This gives your customers a pharmaceutically elegant and effective ointment.
