31.08.2020 Pilot scale mobile processing machine

Romaco Innojet, Karlsruhe, Germany, has launched VENTILUS® Pilot, which is believed to be the first mobile processing machine in the market for pilot scale applications. All components of this ergonomic all-in-one solution are integrated in a cGMP compliant system concept, which includes the air technology with all filter, heating and cooling elements in addition to the process container and the control system. The VENTILUS Pilot can thus be connected and put into operation quickly and easily in any environment. Mounted on wheels, the pilot scale system is compact enough to fit through any standard door frame. It can be freely positioned in a cleanroom or integrated into the wall systems according to each customer’s requirements.

The standard version of the VENTILUS Pilot can be used for granulating, drying and coating particle sizes from 10μm to 2mm. This versatile system is therefore equally suited for laboratory applications or for manufacturers of small batches with a volume of between four and 25 litres. Hot melt formulations can likewise be achieved simply and fast.

All machines in the VENTILUS product family facilitate scale-up.

VENTILUS technology is claimed to contribute in a number of ways towards more sustainable pharmaceutical production. For one thing, the compact design of the VENTILUS Pilot saves a lot of space in cleanroom areas and, by implication, reduces CO2 emissions during operation. For another, the air flow bed technology requires less energy than traditional fluidised bed processes. The SEPAJET® filter’s unique design moreover restricts product loss to a minimum by constantly returning the particles to the process. Basically, the Romaco Innojet technology not only offers economic benefits; it is also comparatively sustainable in use.
