Conventional Mixing vs. EXAKT Milling

By | Pharmacy

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

Three Roll Mill Applications

By | Dispersion

From the food industry to nanotechnology, EXAKT three roll mills are used in a wide variety of industrial and research applications. No matter which paste must be processed, the EXAKT three roll mills can break open all kinds of agglomerates. This creates substances of the greatest fineness and quality.

  • Adhesives: conductive, filled, underfills
  • Colors: inks, coatings paints
  • Cosmetics: lipsticks, eyeliner, makeup
  • Dental: gels, pastes, restorative materials
  • Electronics: flux, metal or carbon pastes
  • Grease and lubrication
  • Nano Technologies: graphene, CNT, ceramics

Three Roll Mill Process

What does an ointment mill do?

By | Pharmacy

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.
