FPS is specialised in fine size reduction equipment and containment systems for many industrial applications. Containment is a general approach, allowing us to propose solutions starting from cleanrooms up to isolators for sterile or HPAPI manufacturing needs.
FPS is an Italian company specialized in the design and manufacture of containment & isolation systems and micronization solutions for the handling and production of active and sterile pharmaceutical ingredients; it is mainly addressed to pharmaceutical, chemical and cosmetic companies all over the world.
Eighteen years after its foundation, FPS today has three sites: head quarter with sales and administrative office in Como, a production plant in Fiorenzuola d'Arda and a commercial office in Philadelphia (US).
With almost 100 employees, more than 1,300 systems in operation worldwide for handling pharmaceutical substances, FPS presents itself on the market as an international company, extremely flexible and able to adapt to different customer's needs.
The pride and joy of the company is the recently implemented Test and R&D Centre, where three ISO8 clean rooms are available dedicated to performing technical micronization tests for small quantities up to large batches. It is also available a wide range of mills with special configurations for performing dedicated tests and an isolator where it is possible to perform technical tests on highly active products.
Containment is an issue more and more addressed by authorities and companies in fine chemical and pharmaceutical industries with increasing demand also in energy, aerospace, food and cosmetic applications. Product protection, as well as environment and operator protection, is the driving requirements in new projects or in equipment re-vamping.
FPS offers a complete range of containment systems that satisfies all possible needs and requirements. Our approach to a containment system is to discuss with the end user the specific needs in terms of protection, quality, and productivity in order to identify the equipment that best fits the specifications:

FPS’ fluid jet mills and mechanical mills undertake micronisation processes to ensure high-quality fine grinding. The company’s experts can determine the best configuration for a client’s needs.
FPS’ micronisation product range includes spiral jet mills, the QMill, and the PinMill. Spiral jet mill technology is suitable for particle size distribution (PSD) below 3 µm, while the QMill and PinMill are better suited for PSD between 30 µm and 100 µm. Spiral jet mill technology achieves size reduction by accelerating particles using high-speed jet streams. The particles are then collided to get a target PSD down to D90 µm < 3 µm.
Mechanical mills reduce pharmaceutical and chemical agglomerates to fine particles. FPS’ mills include a specially designed housing with an interchangeable stator and rotor.
QMill technology acts as an alternative to mechanical. Specifically designed for pharmaceutical applications, all connections are made in compliance with current good manufacturing practice (cGMP) standards and features quick assembly and disassembly. The number of components has also been reduced to a minimum to ensure easy cleaning and validation.
The spiral jet mill and QMill series are complete with dedicated feeding systems (volumetric or gravimetric) and final powder collection and filtration units.
