hammer mill / cone / laboratory / for the pharmaceutical industry
Scalable Lab System™



  • Technology:

    cone, hammer

  • Applications:

    laboratory, for the pharmaceutical industry, for production, R&D

  • Other characteristics:



With the ability to alternate between five milling solutions in seconds, the Quadro® / Fitzpatrick Scalable Lab System™ (SLS) allows you to transfer results from small-sample R&D tests to full-scale production.

In addition to selecting the right machine when developing a new product, formulators, scientists, researchers and developers must also ensure that the equipment selected at the laboratory stage can be transferred to production. It is imperative that the same technology used during the lab-scale stage be available with larger capacity models.

The Quadro® / Fitzpatrick Scalable Lab System™ meets this challenge by ensuring that PSDs achieved at lab-scale can be duplicated in production equipment with minimal variance in particle size distributions. The SLS single platform with interchangeable size reduction heads guarantees that whatever technology is selected during trials can be easily and confidently duplicated at production volumes — with simple operating parameters transfer.

The SLS encompasses the primary size reduction and material processing technologies most often used in oral solid dosage processing — hammer mills, conical mills and security screeners.
