Pharmaceutical Mixing Equipment

Application Guide from SimScale

In the pharmaceutical industry, mixing is absolutely necessary to ensure an homogenous, precise, and consistent product. Selecting the correct pharmaceutical equipment for your application depends on what is being mixed. This comes down to the properties of the substance including, among other things, viscosity, particle size, miscibility, texture, and chemical formula. Whether selecting an existing pharmaceutical mixer or designing new kind of blending equipment, it should be tested to ensure it is producing a consistent product while keeping batch times and energy use to a minimum. This is where computational fluid dynamics (CFD) can offer support.
