We have purchased 3 unit of 2 inches R&D model of Sturtevant AJM in Syngenta, Momentive Performance Material and in GSP Crop Science in my 13 years of Industry’s experience in Agrochemical R&D. We found this product very useful for R&D purpose as it highly effective only in one pass, zero maintenance and require very less quantity of Powder for milling purpose (save cost of active ingredients and also save time required for milling). We highly recommend this product to other Agrochemical based R&D due to its promising results and a faithful friend of Formulation Scientist
We’ve purchased the Air Jet Mill manufactured by Sturtevant. Model SDM2, a 2” R&D model with screw & vibri feeder. The performance of the jet mill is excellent. We can control the process parameters viz. grinding pressure, feed pressure & feed rate so preciously that we’ve achieved the PSD of X50 ~ 1.2-1.3 µm in a single pass. The API we have micronized have poor flow properties and is used in the Pressurised Metered Dose Inhaler (pMDI). We are totally satisfied with the performance of the mill.
The quality and productivity of the Leevams & Sturtevant combination Micronizer is excellent, we are meeting our customer requirements with this machine and we are achieving the required particle size in single pass, where as we are achieving the same particle size in other makes after 2 to 3 pass, our product loss reduced because of achieving the required particle size in single pass & operating cost also reduced drastically, the initial investment is high, but in long run we will get excelling benefits on operating cost, less product loss, reduced batch time, less maintenance and easy operation ”
A Great Association for an imported Micronizer and its accessories which was supported from initial level pilot operation at Leevams to actual Equipment Installation at our Works. Thorough exposure to the Equipment, timely guidance and technical assistance by Leevams team helped us kick off the Project more successfully.
