Freeman Technology to Co-Sponsor 'Blending and Flow of Pharmaceutical Powders' Course

August 10, 2009
Freeman Technology, in partnership with Gericke and Glatt Air Techniques, is sponsoring a new three-day course presented by Mixing Consultants Inc. on the subject of ‘Blending and Flow of Pharmaceutical Powders’. The course will be held in the U.S. and in Europe, beginning in Pearl River, NY on October 27-29 and then at Graz University of Technology in Austria from December 9-11. Each will feature high-level presentations given by academic experts from Rutgers University and by industry specialists, including Tim Freeman, director of operations for Freeman Technology.

Prompted by the success of a similar event held in Puerto Rico in May this year, Tim Freeman will once again join Professor Fernando Muzzio of Rutgers University, together with pharmaceutical manufacturing leaders from Glatt Air Techniques and Gericke. Designed for those working in product and process design, manufacturing, scale-up, technology transfer, and control, the course program begins with an introduction from the regulatory perspective. It then moves through the topics of mixing of free-flowing materials, automation for powder blending, mixing of cohesive materials, lubrication, and continuous mixing techniques and process design. The final day then takes a further look into regulatory issues before moving on to powder flow measurements in relation to pharmaceutical development and manufacturing.
