Powder System Ltd's (PSL’s) multiple mill isolator can accommodate different mills in a single glovebox. A specially designed L-shape window glovebox for inert milling provides product and operator protection. The company will be exhibiting at Interphex in New York, 18-20 March 2014 on Booth 2232.

Contained milling process for enhanced operator viewing, ergonomics and an assured explosion protection system

PSL’s universal Milling Isolator is the optimum solution when multiple mills, micronisers or air jet mills are required for a single product or process. PSL’s Milling Isolator fulfills laboratory to complete facility requirements for manufacturing formulation of fine particle sizes.

PSL provides full operator protection through high containment to nanograms level and a controlled safe environment while performing size reduction of active ingredients. Due to the explosive nature of milling and micronising, an assured explosion protection system is fully integrated into the design, with PSL’s nitrogen purge systems able to achieve less than 1% RH.

The Universal Multiple Mill Glovebox offers the advantage of a nitrogen-purged environment, nanogram containment, a small area to clean and better control over cross-contamination.

The Glovebox features a unique ‘L’-shaped window with good access for changing, stripping and cleaning mills within the glovebox. Where traditional gloveboxes would have upper and lower windows with a seam obscuring a critical point, PSL’s Milling Isolator features a lift-up window for enhanced viewing and ergonomics.
