Published 03 July 2017 | By Russell Finex

Sri Krishna Pharmaceuticals greatly increase production of APIs with Russell Finex screening solutions

When expanding production at one of their facilities to include the manufacturing of paracetamol, the company sought a pharmaceutical vibrating screen. Having previously supplied the company with powder sifters, Sri Krishna Pharma approached Russell Finex for a solution.

With more than 80 years' experience supplying pharmaceutical solutions to global customers including Pfizer, GSK, Wyeth and Sanofi-Aventis, Russell Finex analyzed Sri Krishna Pharma's unique requirements and supplied three 900mm diameter Russell Compact Sieves with Vibrasonic® Deblinding Systems. The Russell Compact Sieve® is a high capacity check-screener, capable of achieving higher throughput rates compared to conventional machines. The enclosed system is ideal for the pharmaceutical industry as it provides total containment, protecting operators from any harmful dusts or fumes. High-quality stainless-steel contact parts enable easy cleaning, and the unit can be easily dismantled and assembled without the need for tools.

"The installation of the Russell machines has not only made full sanitation easy to achieve, but also protects the health and safety of our operators. These units have proved to be the ideal solution, helping us to meet production demand whilst improving hygiene." - comments Mr A. Bhaskar Reddy, Assistant General Manager of Purchasing and Stores at Sri Krishna Pharma.

Due to the nature of API's, mesh blinding can often be experienced when screening these pharmaceutical powders. Fitting the Russell Compact Sieve® with the Vibrasonic® Deblinding System ensures these powders can be screened on finer meshes without compromising flow rates.
