Once again the chemical processing World is in the midst of its preparation for the biggest show in its field: Achema 2018 in Frankfurt. Also at DrM activities are being intensified to get ready for the event in June.
However, this year the stakes are especially high: Some time back we started with a number of development projects which are coming to a closing end and we will use the show to introduce those to the broader industry. We are proud to have no less than 5 new patents and patent applications which we will show off in form of working products, models or animations. As a teaser to this important event we want to let you have a sneak peek into our presentations. But please take the opportunity to come and see us at our booth and get a life demonstration of these innovations. Because there’s nothing better than the real thing!
FUNDABAC® Overfill Protection Device
Damage of filter internals due to overloading with solids can be a major headache for operators who run filtration systems at certain conditions. Various designs, devices and instruments to prevent such incidences have been developed in the past but often not with satisfactory results. We now have chosen an entirely different route which we will present to you. The patented device can be installed both in new and existing filter systems and will help protect your equipment.
The legendary vibratory mixer which has been on the market for the last few decades has its well established clientele in the pharma and biotech industry. It is a proven technology with thousands of units in operation. But now we are taking a big leap to an entirely new vibratory design. And it will be so silent you would not believe it is in operation.
The biotech industry is jumping more and more onto Single Use technology. It promises a number of advantages to the traditional stainless steel equipment. But existing single use filtration technology seems to rely on old principles. At DrM we were hard at work to come up with an entirely new device which will significantly reduce operating cost. We have done it the typical DrM fashion and developed an entirely new process around a novel single use filter design to come up with a compact and cost efficient equipment. And it is not only for biotech. Also chemical companies have shown interest for cases where operators need to be protected from hazardous substances.
Vibratory devices are very well suited for single use equipment as rotating parts often create sealing issues. Lacklustre mixing devices for single use equipment on the market hardly have any punch. The FUNDAMIX® with its extremely effective high frequency mixing plate can create amazing mixing results at low shear forces. The complete system is patented and will be presented in conjunction with the FUNDABAC® SU.
Single Use Valve
This innovative valve was developed due to the need to find a single use ON/OFF valve which can operate at higher pressures required for filtration. Most of the items on the market can only pinch tubes at atmospheric pressure or require an expensive replacement head for every change. This single use pinch valve can securely operate at 4 bar pressure and does not require any replacement parts apart from the single use tubing.
So, if you make it to the Achema this year, take the opportunity to visit us at our booth: Hall 5.0 / Stand B16. We will have enough people present not to keep you waiting.
