SentroBlender is a laboratory scale bin blender for very small blend sizes with integrated NIR port and all necessary controls.
NIR PAT methods development for powder mixing processes can be time consuming and expensive. The amount of API needed is proportional to the scale and the overall time needed for a normal bin blending process including preparation, discharging and cleaning can be quite long.

SentroBlender helps shortening the development time to a minimum while at the same time the amount of material required is minimized.

With batch sizes of only 50 – 100g a complete DoE with 30 – 40 different concentration levels can be finished within only 1-2 days.

The system can be used with any Sentronic PAT NIR for container blending (SentroPAT BU and SentroPAT DA)

The method transfer to large scale can be accomplished by adding a small number of data acquired at the larger scale into the NIR method.

Due to the small size of the overall system it is possible to insert the system optionally into a glove box to allow handling of more potent products
