High pressure homogenisers

BPS offers a range of high pressure, electric-hydraulic laboratory homogenisers that ensure a reliable and consistent process for scalable results across a range of laboratory applications. They include:
  • The Nano deBEE – a laboratory unit capable of handling sample sizes as small as 20ml whilst still providing up to 45,000 psi of pressure. Ideal for product development applications in various industries.
  • The Mini deBEE – a research homogeniser with PLC control and monitoring.
  • The Micro dBEE – a compact, air-operated unit designed for product formulation.

Typical applications include particle size reduction, cell disruption, micro-encapsulating, grinding, dispersion, general blending and mixing.

Powder fillers

BPS supplies a range of manual, semi- and fully-automatic powder fillers from industry leader M&O Perry. These utilise the ACCOFIL vacuum/pressure principle to weigh and dispense powders in a quick, repeatable manner, eliminating the need to hand-weigh powder before application. ACCOFIL compacts powder to achieve a constant density within the filling gun and dispenses it by application of pressure.

By adjusting the filling chamber or changing the gun size, the amount of fill can be easily controlled to suit the intended application. A range of standard gun sizes are available to accommodate different varieties of powder and container sizes.

Controlled rate freezers

Bio-Cool is a mechanically refrigerated bath for the programmed cooling or thawing of biological specimens prior to storage or use. Made by FTS Systems, the Bio-Cool bath circulates liquid to allow more efficient heat transfer to the samples and in order to maintain a more consistent temperature at all locations - this ensures a smoother, more uniform freezing process.

Rotary Vial Washers

BPS can supply a range of compact high and low throughput vial washers designed and developed by PennTech Machinery Corp. The “RW” Series, designed for parenteral applications, can process glass and plastic vials at an output rate of up to 24,000 vials per hour. A unique non-penetrating nozzle minimises the generation of particles through moving parts, and also reduces downtime caused by nozzle bending and glass damage caused by misfeeds or misalignment.
