Automatic Ointment/Cream Manufacturing Plant is used to prepare homogenized medicated emulsion of Wax and Water to a specific formulation. It is helpful for manufacturing of ointments, creams, gels and pastes for pharmaceutical & cosmetic industries.
It consists 3 vessels:
a) Jacketed Water Phase Vessel, of sufficient capacity according to the batch size of product to heat the water to a particular temperature in accordance of formulation.
b) Jacketed Wax Phase Vessel, to melt wax of requisite formulated quantity to a particular temperature.
c) Then molten wax and hot water transferred by Vacuum to Jacketed Main (Reactor) Vessel, through a filter and pipe lines laid in the plant. Medical ingredients according to the formulation formula added and then processed at a constant temperature under 400 mm vacuum with continuous stirring. After that it is homogenized till it forms an emulsion with consistent viscosity.
Heating can be Electrical, Steam or Thermic Fluid. Range of Plant Capacities is from 50kg to 1000kg. All the contact parts are made of SS 316 / SS 316 L grade stainless steel material, and other non-contact parts are made of SS 304 material. M.S. Jackets cladded with SS 304. This matches GMP standards.
