Freeman Technology to Participate in Blending and Flow of Pharmaceutical Powders Course

Following a year in which he has spoken at many different events covering aspects of powder characterization, Tim Freeman, director of operations for Freeman Technology, will again join academics and other industry experts for the next Mixing Consultants Inc. course.

The course, which is being held in Pearl River, NY, February 23-25, covers the blending and flow of pharmaceutical powders. The content is being delivered by Professor Fernando Muzzio of Rutgers, The State University of New Jersey, Ralf Kretzschmar, president of Glatt Systemtechnik GmbH, Ralf Weinekötter, general manager of Gericke AG, and Tim Freeman. Program details and registration information are available at www.freemantech.co.uk/goto.php?link=10012_30001.

Key elements of the course include regulatory perspectives, mixing of free-flowing materials, mixing of cohesive materials, lubrication, continuous mixing, and powder flow issues.

“Once again I am pleased to be sharing Freeman Technology’s understanding and knowledge of powder characterization, and its relationship to processing,” said Freeman. “Since modern instrumentation now allows for the creation of a database of powder properties, hard-earned processing experience can be correlated with powder characteristics. We see productivity and product quality improving as powder processing becomes less of an art and more of a science.”
