DrM Product Families
Sophisticated, highly automated and fully enclosed filtration systems for either wet or dry discharge, or alternatively for semi or fully continuous thickening. System benefits include high efficiency solids removal, precious metals (catalyst) recovery, patented heel volume filtration, cake washing, cake drying and in-situ cleaning of the filter media. DrM filters are routinely used in many industries including oil & gas, petrochemical, specialty chemical, fine chemical, environmental, mineral and metal processing, pharmaceutical, as well as food & agrochemical. Amongst candle filter suppliers DrM has proven to be one of the most versatile and flexible to adapt to any client request.
Single-Use Technologies/Systems (SUT/SUS) have become increasingly prevalent in recent years in Bio-pharmaceutical manufacturing. SUT/SUS are typically made of plastic material and are delivered pre-sterilised by Gamma or X-Ray irradiation. As the name suggests, Single-Use equipment is disposed of and replaced after use.
There are a number of benefits, compared to traditional stainless steel process equipment. One of the main benefits is that time and energy consuming cleaning and sterilisation procedures are no longer required. Other benefits of Single-Use Technologies/Systems are shorter Time to Market cycles, reduced plant footprint, substantially lower CAPEX and decreased time for changeover resulting in a higher output.
During selection, sizing and validation of process equipment laboratory and pilot testing are indispensable bench tools. In filtration processes they provide important data on flow, pressure, filtrate quality, residual moisture, washing yield, filter aid demand and other parameters. The insight gained serves the process engineer and plant designer for sound planning and specification of the full-scale production equipment. After the execution of significant pilot tests the determination of a performance or process guarantee is normally possible.
DrM’s FUNDAMIX® Vibromixers mix liquids strictly by vibration. The absence of moving parts results in vortex-less mixing and homogeneous distribution and emulsification. Excellent pharmaceutical, microbiological and biochemical applications include insulin production, blood fractionations, preparation of sterile solutions, mixing of injectable suspensions in sterile vessels for ampoule filling, vaccine/oil emulsions, anaerobic fermentations, submerse culture of mammalian and plant cells, as well as protein solutions.
DrM aims to support your business by keeping your DrM filtration systems and vibratory mixers, and by extension your filtration and mixing processes, running. We guarantee the highest quality spare parts and ensure that a comprehensive range of spare parts are available in the shortest delay possible for all FUNDABAC®, CONTIBAC®, STERIBAC® and FUNDAMIX® models. We offer advice on spare parts and on optimizing your filter’s and mixer’s maintenance cycles. This ensures that you get the best possible wear rates from our parts.
