The high collection yields produced by this new collection module are just what the biotech and pharmaceutical research and development labs have been asking us for

Fluid Energy, the world leader in powder processing solutions, today announced the High-Yield® Collection Module upgrade for the 00 Jet-O-Mizer jet milling system. The new stainless steel jet mill collection container is designed to collect 98% of the compounds processed during jet milling, making the 00 Jet-O-Mizer the highest yielding jet mill available for biotechnology and pharmaceutical powder processing applications.
"The high collection yields produced by this new collection module are just what the biotech and pharmaceutical research and development labs have been asking us for," said Jeffrey Gutkind, Fluid Energy division manager. "The High-Yield® Collection Module is specifically designed to reduce the high cost associated with powder processing expensive and rare compounds in biotechnology and pharmaceutical R&D."
The new High-Yield® Collection Module, which is available as an upgrade for both new and existing 00 Jet-O-Mizer jet mills eliminates the less efficient filter sleeve found on standard models. The unit is self-contained and operates pneumatically using the same compressed air or gas that runs the jet mill.
The compressed air or gas removes compound, or product, from the filter and interior surfaces of the jet mill into the High-Yield® Collection Module, collecting any processed powder with up to 98% efficiency. In addition, the High-Yield® Collection Module eliminates operator manual-interface for powder collection, minimizing potential for cross contamination of future mill runs and reducing possible health risks from exposure to dangerous compounds.
The High-Yield® Collection Module is capable of processing batches between one and 50 grams. Performance data collected while processing two, five, 10, 25, and 50 grams of lactose at 100 PSI produced consistent collection yields ranging from 91% to 98.7% efficient, depending on the volume of material being processed. These yields are all significantly higher than the standard filter sleeve jet mill setup.
"Constructed of 316L stainless steel, the High-Yield® Collection Module is easy to clean and offers a sanitary design," said Gutkind. "Pulse design is used to clean the unit's filter."
The High-Yield® Collection Module comes equipped with a Dacron filter and an optional PTFE filter is available. In addition, the 110V/60 Hz/1 phase controller offers programmable settings for collection cycles designed to handle sticky compounds. There are no tools required for assembly or retrofitting to existing 00 Jet-O-Mizer jet mills.
The new Fluid Energy collection module is in stock and available. For additional information on the High-Yield® Collection Module or the 00 Jet-O-Mizer jet milling system, please call Fluid Energy at 215-721-8990 or visit http://www.fluidenergype.com/prod10.htm.
