Chemineer has commenced manufacture of specially designed impellers for a major new fermentation plant in Malaysia, at what will become the largest integrated insulins production plant in Asia.
The new bio-pharma facility has chosen mixing specialist Chemineer to provide high sanitary ASME/BPE clamp-on impellers as an integral part of the manufacturing process.
Chemineer’s bespoke clamp-on design allows the impeller to be moved up and down the shaft without the need for a keyway that could compromise all-important hygiene.
The BT6 and MP4 impellers, part of a comprehensive range at Chemineer, are proven in CIP biotech applications.
In addition to impellers, Chemineer is also supplying lab-scale agitators for optimisation work.
