Blending of components play vital role in the manufacturing of pharmaceutical products where accuracy and consistency in the formulation are the key specifications. Blending ensures homogeneous mixture of Active Pharmaceutical Ingredient and excipients that are required in the manufacturing of drugs. Apart from mixing, objectives such as preparing fine emulsions, reducing particle size, carrying out chemical reactions, manipulating rheology, dissolving components, and facilitating heat transfer can be achieved using blenders.

Various types of products demand for different types of blending equipment. Different types of blenders based on geometries are available from blender manufacturers based on different mechanism such as double cone blenders, v-blenders, octagonal blenders, ribbon blenders, paddle blenders, vertical screw blenders, plow mixer, and double paddle mixer. Depending on dry mixing or high shear mixing and emulsification or high shear mixing and powder dispersion into liquid users can chose among various products. Blenders are also available in different capacities based on the need.

Pharmaceutical Blenders Market Dynamics

Technologically advanced pharmaceutical blenders are expected to enhance the performance of pharmaceutical blenders. To enhance the performance and ensure homogeneous mixture of drug blenders are incorporated with analytical tools which monitors which checks the uniformity necessary for drug manufacturing.
