Solid Dosage Production Process


VANGUARD'S VZD Pharma IBC Blending System is a first class blending equipment that yield superb mixing uniformity of powder and other great advantages over other type of blenders. It consists of an Intermediate Bulk Container, rotary frame, driving system, lifting system, braking and SIEMENS PLC Touch Screen Control System. The operation is very simple: place the bin into the rotary frame, and press the confirmation button on the touch screen. The bin is then lifted to the required height and clamped. The driving system starts to work and mix accordingly to the time and speed assigned after the pressure sensors receive signal of tightly clamped. Reaching to the parameters assigned, the braking system starts to work and the rotary frame stops vertically. The mixing production is finished. The lifting system then works accordingly to lay down the bin. Pull the bin out from the rotary frame (can also separate materials from the bin directly in the frame) and the printer prints the entire production data. The working cycle has finished. The structure trait of VZD IBC Blender is the rotary frame (bin) and the mixing axis make of an angle, the movement of the materials inside the bin contains the wall of bin. This will yield a uniform and perfect mix.
A major advantage of using VZD Pharma IBCs in the manufacture of pharmaceuticals, is the ability to carry out 'In Container Blending' and homogenizing of dry powder formulations. IBC blending offers dramatically improved efficiency compared with conventional technology such as 'V' blenders including minimum process changes as dictated by FDA guidelines. Loading and unloading times are reduced, and no clean down of machinery is required between batches as the powder is contained within the IBC. As blending of dry powders is a key process in the manufacture of drugs and is the main sampling point for products, major savings can be found when sampling, as batches can be scaled up with the use of IBCs.

VZD Pharma IBC Blending System is commonly used in pharmaceutical, food processing and nutriceutical companies worldwide. It has a compact structure, outstanding and reliable performance and it is easy to operate. It can clamp bins of different models and volume. Thus gaining its adaptation to the mixing demand of large output and diversity products. There is no dead angle, concave-convex face and no screw on the surface and all angles are cambered. The surfaces outside and inside are mirror polished to achieve highest quality. Roughness degree inside is Ra=0.2 m, and outside is Ra =0.4 m. Applying sealing appliance made of silicon latex on the cover of the bin to gain a good airproof quality. The mixing effect reaches over 99% and charging coefficient ranges from 50% to 80%. .

First Class Blending System + Immediate & Long Run Cost Savings:
A bin blending system offers considerable savings. Consider the following points:
Multiple shell blenders can be replaced, the entire blending operation can be done in one small room. Cross contamination is a non-issue as product will not be exposed to the blending room environment.
Reduced Labor Costs. Fixed shell blenders take a long time to fill and empty. Compared to bin blending, there can be as much as twice the material handling. Generally, fixed shell blenders are loaded from the floor above by gravity or by a vacuum. This means that all the products have to be handled from the dispensary (weighing area) and then discharged again into the blender (versus loading directly in the bin). As opposed to bin blending, the loading process is usually dusty, not ergonomic, and labor intensive. In a bin blending operation, the materials are loaded directly into the bin, which can take place in the dispensary and easily done in a high-containment method.
Increase Product Quality. Fixed shell blenders require the products to be transferred after blending into a drum or bin. Every time the product is transferred, some segregation can take place. In a bin blending operation, the product is transferred to the next operation directly from the bin (blending container). Furthermore, in many operations one or two steps that used to require that the product be exposed to the room or additional fall tubes, vacuum systems, etc., can be eliminated, thereby reducing the chance of foreign substances entering the product.
Increase Finish Product Output: Your total amount of blends per day is only limited to the amount of bins. Example: if you have 20 bins you can have 20 finished blends a day. The reason is that you dont have to clean the base unit. Thus giving you up-time savings.
The IBC can also we used to feed tablet presses, capsule machines, powder fillers and etc. This employs the use of a pharma bid lifter; Thus reducing dust and cross contamination.
