What does an ointment mill do?

EXAKT-80E-Plus-with-Hopper

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.
