The Fitzpatrick Company and Quadro Engineering Corp. Launch Scalable Lab System Milling Platform at Interphex 2016

publication date: Jun 3, 2016
author/source: The Fitzpatrick Company

The Fitzpatrick Company and Quadro Engineering Corp. have launched the Scalable Lab System (SLS), the latest incarnation of their lab-scale L1A FitzMill, and U5 Comil combination package, originally introduced five years ago. 

FitzpatrickThe new offering includes five material processing and milling solutions: Fitzpatrick’s FitzMill L1A Comminutor; Quadro’s U5 and U5 High Efficiency Comil, FlexSift S5 and H5 High Energy API Comil. 

The new system enables operators to alternate between multiple milling solutions in minutes, due to its innovative tri-clamp design. The head interchangeability this provides makes the equipment suitable for milling and/or wet material conditioning, as stand-alone or to complement lab-scale wet granulation systems. It enables operators to process samples as small as 5 grams with minimal loss or product retention, and +50 kg/hr milling for certain products. 

The Scalable Lab System utilizes smart-detect, a unique lab equipment feature that automatically ensures the appropriate speed range is fixed by recognizing the head being installed – a critical parameter for ensuring scalability to production machines is maintained.  It intuitively and seamlessly facilitates the transfer of operating parameters from small sample R&D tests, to full-scale production machines. 

Formulators, Scientists, Researchers & Developers, and Technical Transfer Specialists can opt for a single platform and select the most suitable milling technology with minimal capital investment and reduced overall space requirements.

Wilf Sangüesa, Product Manager, MPT Pharma Processing at Quadro Engineering / The Fitzpatrick Company, commented: “Quadro and Fitzpatrick have pioneered the flexibility of interchangeable milling heads in their respective fields.  Since 2002, Fitzpatrick’s L1A lab model has afforded users the flexibility to interchange FitzMill and Conical mill heads; and Quadro introduced the ComilSift in 2009, the first production-scale, single platform, dual-head interchangeable system for milling and/or security screening. With this heritage and our technical focus on delivering scalable and predictable material processing/milling results, we believe the new platform offers a stand out, disruptive solution to the market.”
