The Multi-Processor system is a single fluid bed unit with interchangeable process modules for drying, granulating, pelletizing and coating. It is ideal for small batch R&D requirements and small-scale manufacturing.
The Building Block System offers complete flexibility for optimization of large-scale fluid bed systems for volume production. Standard process modules - including filters, product containers, fans, spray systems, controllers and CIP system - are user-selected and combined to meet individual customer needs exactly.
In granulation, drying and most pelletizing applications, a process filter is used to trap small particles, which are returned to the bed when the filter is cleaned. In coating applications, fine particles usually need to be removed. Fluid beds that are used for more than one type of process can be supplied with interchangeable process filters.
Innovation: The Ultima Range
Following our philosophy to be always one step ahead, Collette NV has decided to re-evaluate the Gral design. As a result a completely new design of equipment has emerged: the Ultima range.
This range can be split into 2 groups: the Ultima-Grals, and the Ultima-processors. The basic design of mixer, chopper and bowl has not been changed from the original Gral design for 2 major reasons.
The Ultima is designed in such a way that all outside surfaces are very smooth and thus easily cleaned. All necessary connections, tubes and cabling are completely covered and sealed, to avoid places where dust and contamination can collect.
The design of the discharge valve has been modified to allow better and more complete discharging of the product AND the cleaning solutions. This has further improved the WIP/CIP program for the Ultima range. The Ultima-Gral can also be linked to other equipment such as fluid beds, as is done with the Gral.
The Ultima Processor
Due to the current trend in R&D towards more potent drugs, the question of containment has become more and more prominent. High containment levels by use of a one-pot processor enhance both operator safety and product quality and is therefore in many cases THE standard for processing highly potent compounds.
The Ultima can be equipped with several drying options to turn an UltimaGral into an Ultima processor.
Microwave vacuum drying
Gas assisted vacuum drying: Transflo
In short a full option Ultima-processor is the most complete on pot processor on the market.
