FlexMill Lab Brochure

A revolutionary, modular, milling solution with 6 different heads and process.

FREWITT, a world leader in powder size reduction technologies, presents FlexMill-Lab, a revolutionary, modular, milling solution for R&D and analytical laboratories in the pharmaceutical, cosmetic, fine chemical and food industries. This patented innovation was developed specifically in collaboration with R&D teams of selected customers in order to meet today’s industry challenges.

Modularity

Benefitting from a ground-breaking design, the FlexMill Lab can integrate up to six different, milling processes in one system, enabling the user to produce a wide variety of particle sizes ranging down to a lower particle size distribution of D90 <10 um in a dry process, as well as into the Nanoparticle range by changing to a bead mill head for Nanoparticle production.

Flexibility

Incomparable, the FlexMill-Lab enables you to alternate between different milling processes simply and rapidly. The interchangeable heads can be installed as well as removed within seconds and are sealed for cleaning and sterilising.

Performance

FlexMill-Lab offers unequalled, process scale-up enhancement, allowing for batches of 50g to 1 kg for small-scale, laboratory applications while ensuring the flexibility of a 30 – 150 kg/h production rate for pilot-scale quantities. Most important, FlexMill-Lab guarantees true scale-up from lab size batches to pilot-scale, and finally to high-volume industrial production.

Cost-effective

Encompassing a true rationalisation of investment, FlexMill-Lab integrates 5 milling processes in a single platform, allowing you to make substantial savings on your investment costs. This modular solution also allows you to start milling processes required and to increase your capacities with other milling processes as your needs evolve.
