NETZSCH introduced the DeltaVita® line of ultra-fine nanoparticle mills for wet grinding of batches ranging from 0.05 to 2000 liters. The new line features NETZSCH's proprietary ZETA® grinding system and comprises ten mills, designed to accommodate the entire manufacturing process. The DeltaVita® series of mills is repeatable and scalable; from drug discovery through clinical trials to full-scale production. In addition, the complete DeltaVita® series offers CIP and larger sizes; DeltaVita® 600 - 10000 offer SIP capability.
Through the use of high energy, high flow rate, multiple pass grinding, NETZSCH’s DeltaVita® line achieves excellent repeatability and homogeneous dispersion. In the time it takes an ordinary mill to complete one pass, DeltaVita® mills can complete as many as 10 cycles. Their ZETA® grinding system provides a single tank process for reduced contamination, precise temperature control and an easy cleaning.
The DeltaVita® 15 through 300 laboratory machines use grinding media from 0.05 mm to 0.2 mm for consistent particle reductions to below 200 nanometers. They can be fitted with variable grinding chamber sizes, making them ideal for feasibility studies where the smallest batch sizes are needed to achieve significant test results in a short period of time. Grinding zone parts are manufactured with yttrium stabilized zirconium oxide, a high strength ceramic, for metal contamination free grinding.
For clinical trial phase production, the DeltaVita® 600 provides batch sizes of one to 6 liters. It features interchangeable agitating systems, optional explosion-proof design and PLC control. The DeltaVita® 2000 through 60000 provide batch sizes ranging from 50 to 2000 liters.NETZSCH provides other equipment for almost any pharmaceutical processing need.
