UltimaGral™ High-Shear Mixer Granulators
With the Gral™ range, GEA pioneered the market for top-driven high shear mixer granulators. Still in demand after numerous product upgrades, this state-of- the-art processing workhorse is available with a wide range of bowl capacities to suit any production requirement. The equipment is built to comply with current cGMP standards and is recognized by companies
worldwide as being low maintenance, high quality, robust and reliable. Designed for production-scale functionality, special mixing tools are available for specific applications, as well as a jacketed bowl for temperature control during the process. And, as bowl shape, mixing tools and process parameters are exactly the same, all processes running on the Gral™ range can be immediately transferred to the UltimaGral™ and single pot UltimaPro™ granulators without changing any parameters. With bowl capacities of 10–1200 L (useful bowl content up to 2/3 of gross capacity), the UltimaGral™ range can cover all requirements after the formulation stage. From clinical batch production for scale-up trials to largescale production for marketed products, scalability is key to the system’s success. The most important features of this design are the top-driven mixer and chopper, the removable bowl (Gral™ range only) and the through-thewall installation of the larger machines.
