IPC bins or the integrated process bins are special types of containers used in the handling of special chemical powders, dusts and granular materials mainly in the pharmaceutical industries. This process is done to create a dust free operation and ensure no human contamination occurs. There is total control of containment, and cross contamination is not possible.
The equipment is designed with cylindrical body and tapered bottom with a large sized lid for easy cleaning process. They are made from stainless steel material such as SS 316, and mounted onto detachable stands designed according to the user requirements.
This is a special type of equipment used closely with the IPC bin. It is used for blending of dry powders during tablet and capsules manufacturing. The bin blender machine enables good lubrication of granules, homogenization, mixing or granules and material conveyance to other processes.
The IPC containers, bins and lifters are developed to minimize and eliminate any human touch that may happen during the manufacturing process. The IPC bins can vary in capacity from 15 liters going up to 1500 liters in capacity depending on the user specifications. The bins are designed to do swiveling movement of up to 360 Degrees and customized construction is possible. The IPC bin loader is constructed with high volume precision and long lasting material, able to resist corrosion from the various chemicals used in processing.
These loaders are used as precursors, and temporary holders to other processes such as sachet filling, tablet pressing and other processes in pharmaceutical processing and packing.
