Powder Handling Handling Potent Powders: The Overlooked Technology Behind DPIs
A dry powder inhaler (DPI) is a device that can deliver medication such corticosteroids into the lungs through inhalation. DPIs are commonly used to treat respiratory diseases such as asthma or chronic obstructive pulmonary disease.
The powdery substances used for this purpose must have a strict particle size distribution (PGV) in the range of 1 to 5 microns in order to guarantee their deep penetration into the lungs and the peripheral airways.
Dec has completed several projects in this field and can offer its customers a comprehensive solution for handling and processing potent powders for this purpose, ranging from incoming material to fully enclosed micronization, mixing and inhaler filling. With Dec's extensive experience in bulk solids, customers benefit from a broad range of innovative solutions. In addition, Dec offers a variety of test facilities to ensure the required results and scale-up challenges can be truly achieved and overcome.
The newly developed and patented 4th generation of MC Dec Jet jet mills offer highly efficient and versatile micronization solutions for the powder processing industry. The series includes several models, ranging from the MC Dec Jet 30 for research and development to the MC Dec Jet 400, which is suitable for micronization up to 300 kg/h.
