The sector of trade shows and fairs has been put to the test during these months of emergency, now it seems that the situation is returning to some normalcy, what are the scheduled events for FPS?

In 2020 almost all events were cancelled or postponed due Covid-19, which prevents large events, especially indoors. After a series of dates set for autumn with different approaches, even the big fairs had to capitulate, postponing everything to 2021. We have been forced to rethink the ways we always presented ourselves to the market and find new ones. For the first time, FPS participated in two virtual conferences this September: the HPAPI Medicine Conference and PharmaCongress. Both events were appreciated by the public who liked the safety of it.

In October and November, however, our sales director, Eng. Butti, will be present as a speaker at the conference on containment organized by the A3P Association and at the Manufacturing Chemi...

  • News Isolator for Tablet Press machine

    Formulation operations involve a lot of process equipment and need to handle small or large batch size.Integration of the containment system with the process equipment is a must to make sure the systems are run efficiently and ergonomically while assuring productivity and end-product quality.One of the typical applications is the Tablet Press, complete with metal checker and de-dusters.
  • Video Paolo Barilli, FPS Process Engineer, talks about his design approach for FPS

    1. What is the design approach of FPS? 

    FPS is highly specialized in the design and manufacture of custom isolators for potent actives and sterile solutions. The strength of FPS is certainly its flexibility and its commitment to guarantee complete customer satisfaction. The solution that we offer is always tailor-made based on the customer needs. To do that we really drill down on the specifics of the process. This leads to a first drawing which is reviewed with our customer. This phase will generate a second design that is used to build a real-scale mock up to test the ergonomics of the system along with the customer. That study leads to a detailed design which includes a P&ID, a Functional Design Specification and a study of safe interlocks for the isolator.


    2. Which kind of isolators are manufactured by FPS?

    We only design and manufacture tailor-made systems for HPAPI or sterile solutions. Each process is uniq...

  • Video Valerio Guarnieri, Micronization Excellence Center supervisor, presents the MEC

    1. What is a Micronization Excellence Center (MEC) and what is it for?

    It is a laboratory for micronization tests with ISO8 clean rooms. It has 2 missions: a R&D center to design new equipment and a test center to study the behavior of micronized products. We have several analytical instruments such as DSC25, Malvern Hydro S 2000 and an optical microscope (to monitor the characteristics that the product acquires during the micronization process). The micronization process takes place using compressed air or nitrogen as a process gas and we can run in controlled air conditions but also under cryogenic conditions. Finally, the MEC has an isolator which is used to handle potent products and to operate in an inert environment.

    2. What types of tests does FPS offer to its customers?
    FPS is very flexible and always adapts to the customer needs. The goal of our highly qualified and experienced staff is to reach specific technical specific...

  • Video Custom or standard isolator: which is the best solution?

    Sometimes a standard isolator is all you need especially if your process is very short and simple, if quantities are very small and you don’t need to integrate any equipment. But you need to make some compromises and you will have to adapt your process to that standard equipment. 

    The principle of a custom is the opposite: it is the isolator that is adapted to fit your process.  

    Every feature of the isolator will be designed to make your process runs very smoothly and quickly. Ergonomics for the operators will be optimized and the design will be tested on a life size wooden model during a mock-up exercise by your own staff. 

    FPS offers the possibility to create its own tailor-made solutions, according to the customer's needs, guaranteeing high safety standards for the operator, the product and the environment.

  • News Tailor-made containment system match with asepsis

    FPS, leader company in the pharmaceutical and fine chemical fields, developing, manufacturing and installing worldwide its own range of Fine Size Reduction machines and Containment Solutions (Sterile and Highly Potent API), has recently delivered a very complex project that combines high containment within aseptic condition

    It’s composed by N°2 ANFD (Agitated Nutsche Filter Dryers, respectively in AISI316L and HC22 material) system with integrated sampling, discharge, milling and packing-off station suitable to handle OEB4 dry product under sterile conditions. Discharged product can be moved to final dispensing containment system for the preparation of final product in different packages. As an alternative in case of ultra fine powder requirement, the product after preliminary drying and milling can be moved to dedicated Micronization and final dispensing isolator (with integrated FPS spiral Jetmill type PilotMill-6).

    Key features of this system are:
    ·         Multi-chamber design providing defined barrier between the process and surrounding environment.
    ·         Full access to the micronization unit and the dispensing station installed inside the isolator.
    ·         Glove ports arrangement to provide best ergonomics and maximum viewing of all process operations.
    ·         Positive/negative pressure regime between enclosure and surrounding environment to ensure all potential contamination is kept inside and required sterility level is assured.

      The FPS Sales director and micronization expert, Eng. Stefano Butti, says: “It is a plant where the product is processed in conditions of high containment and asepsis, starting from its filtration and drying and passing through the milling, micronization and final dispensing.  All process steps and control system were managed entirely by us as main contractor, both for isolators and for the various process machines. The success of this challenge was certainly due to the experience gained in similar projects and the ability to combine these experiences, even in a critical way, with the aim of further improving what has already been done. “

    A dedicated team worked closely with the client throughout the project to ensure that all specific requirements were met (sterility, containment, process performance), and superior quality of manufacture and containment levels were maintained.
