High Shear Mixer Granulator has been developed for mixing of ingredients as well as wet granulation. The multi-bladed impeller is fitted close to the base of the mixing bowl whereas the chopper is mounted on the wall of the mixing bowl. Both the impeller & the chopper have dual-speed options for gently distributing the binder solution as it is added and creating the vortex of the material being mixed.
|1||MIXING BOWL & COVER||SS 304 bowl design in three sections i.e Flat bottom, cylindrical mid portion and conical top portion for efficeint mixing operation & provided with counter balanced lid. Lid provided with vents, view ports & charging openings.|
|2||MAIN IMPELLER & DRIVE||The main impeller consists of dual speed 750/1500 synchronous dual HP TEFC motor, coupled through a belt drive to a worm reduction gearbox with chain coupling. The impeller is designed to provide mixing at the bottom and at the centre of the bowl and is driven through a specially designed bearing housing that facilitates inside wash facility for quick change over and also prevents leakage of powder from bottom entry and leads to longer life gear box.|
|3||CHOPPER||The chopper drive consists of dual HP speed (1400/2800 synchronous speed)TEFC MOTOR. The motor shaft is of SS and the chopper has specially designed 4 blade SS impeller. The shaft is integral with the motor. The assembly mounted horizontally into the bowl.|
|4||DISCHARGE PORT||The discharge port is mounted horizontally into the bowl with vertical downward opening. The opening is operated by pneumatic cylinder and discharged can be regulated for required opening.|
|5||MOUNTING||A sturdy MS channel frame is used to house the drive assembly at the bottom. The bowl is mounted on the top . A SS staircase and railings are provided for the platform. The platform is half covered with SS dimpled plates. For safe movement of operater and the area under the bowl is covered with SS. The entire body is covered from the sides by suitable SS covers.|
|6||CONTROL PANEL||The control panel is mounted on platform and is provided with :
|7||MAIN PANEL||Main panel consists of all prewired connections and it has only to be connected to the electrical supply. The circuits consists of MCCB and the relay. Wires coming out of the connections are numbered for easy recognition.|
|10||PNEUMATIC SYSTEM||The pneumatic systems requires air pressure of 3 to 5 kgs/sq cm. It is used for operating the discharge valve (opening & closing).
Air purging of chopper drive and main impeller drive to prevent cross contamination. The system consists of an air filter pressure gauge a 2 way solenoid valve (for discharge valve) and other pipes ferules & pneumatic fittings.
Granulator is designed to achieve all the requirements of cGMP – Current Good Manufacturing Practices. The components can be easily dismantled, cleaned thoroughly and assembled in quick time. The shaft seals are very effective to check any leakages and cross contamination due to adherents. The bowl and all the components are of highly polished Stainless Steel with smooth contours and is crevice free.
