Powder Delivery System Mixes Pharmaceutical Ingredients
Millipore has launched the Mobius MIX 1000 and powder delivery system for mixing pharmaceutical ingredients and preparing solutions. Extending the company’s line of mixers that includes 100-, 200- and 500-liter sizes, the new 1,000-liter system uses integrated, single-use powder delivery, mixing, and filtration technology.
The MIX 1000’s powder delivery container features a butterfly valve for controlled addition of solutes to ensure optimal dissolution. An asymmetric design is intended to enhance powder delivery by minimizing clumping and blockage, while a washdown “spraybar” is designed to ensure that residual powder is effectively removed.
Incorporating standard bearingless levitating mixer technology, the MIX 1000 has a stainless steel mixer carrier that features double jacket for the sides and the bottom, as well as load cells for weight measurement. Sampling ports provide users with closed sampling for maintaining product and sample integrity, a zero dead-leg sample port, and NovaSeal crimper.
