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

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.

 

 

 

The EXAKT 120S-450 Three Roll Mill

The EXAT 120S-450 offers continuously good results at particle fineness down to 5 μm. When increased volume and simple handling are required, the120S-450 is the best choice. The process conditions are very easily adapted to the product to be processed. A continuously adjustable processing speed, excellent temperature control, and alternative roller materials provide the best prerequisites for a multitude of material requirements. The compact desktop model is found everywhere in production. The solid processing of the machine provides absolutely parallel, manually adjusted roller gaps for uniform processing.
