Industrial Gyratory Sifter Machine for the Pharmaceutical Industry

Established in 2001, Windlas Biotech Limited (commonly known as Windlas Biotech) located in India, researches and manufactures high-therapeutic-value drugs for the global pharmaceutical market.

The company focuses on contract manufacturing of pharmaceutical products for both Indian and export markets, and generic drugs that meet brand formulation within the industry. In order to optimize production, the company turned to Russell Finex, global sieving, and filtration specialists, for a hygienic and versatile sieving solution for processing various pharmaceutical powders at a high capacity.

At one plant, the company produces a range of pharma formulation products. To ensure only high-quality products are manufactured, the pharmaceutical powders are screened at the granulation stage to remove contamination. During contract manufacturing, the company processes various pharmaceutical products for different customers, so it is imperative to have a screening machine versatile enough to handle the properties of numerous powders, being quick and easy to strip down and clean.

Previously, Windlas Biotech was using a traditional rotary sifter at this stage of the process. This machine was noisy and unhygienic, and had low throughput rates, meaning the company was struggling to meet the demands of its customers. After analyzing capacity requirements, necessary hygiene levels, and budget, it was decided the Russell Eco Separator® was the ideal solution for this application. Raju Lokhande, General Manager at Windlas Biotech said, “We chose to consult Russell Finex for a high-performance separation solution due to the company’s vast experience within the pharmaceutical industry and its reputation for providing equipment to meet specific customer requirements.”

As an adaptable and accurate solution, this industrial gyratory sifter machine for the pharmaceutical industry is designed to meet the needs of modern-day pharmaceutical processing and sieving of powders.  Providing up to five fractions of powder in one operation, ensuring that the product is sieved at the highest quality in order to meet requirements, this is an innovative solution that enables peace of mind for customers. It is also designed with minimal contact parts, reducing production downtime and allowing for easy cleaning.

Russell Finex has over 85 years of experience manufacturing and supplying separators, screeners, and filters to enhance productivity and ensure product quality. The company serves a variety of industries in over 100 countries with applications that include adhesives, ceramics, chemicals, colors, enamels, explosives, food, inks, latex, metal powders, paint, paper coatings, pharmaceuticals, plastisols, powder coating, and waste oils.
