It has been the demands of Kek-Gardner’s customers in the Pharmaceutical Industry that have been a major driving force behind the development of Kek-Gardner’s range of size reduction mills, centrifugal sifters and mixing equipment. They have an impressive track record of supplying processing equipment to major Blue Chip companies including Pfizer, Takeda, Abbott Laboratories and are a preferred supplier to GSK.
Kek-Gardner’s intimate knowledge of the pharmaceutical industry gives them the expertise and capability to meets the demands of the major pharmaceutical companies and their regulatory authorities. This may be a standard, stand-alone unit machine for an uncomplicated application or a custom built system for individual process applications. Kek-Gardner can supply the complete package from design and manufacture to installation and commissioning of the complete system, including the associated pneumatic (or other) conveying systems, support structures and controls.Applications Kek-Gardner works with each customer to offer a process solution to any application requirement e.g. Kek-Gardner are among the pioneers in low temperature size reduction systems where processing temperature is kept low enough to prevent softening or degradation of the feedstock using liquid nitrogen. Materials that have the potential to ignite during processing must be accommodated in the equipment design. As well as the traditional vented systems, Kek-Gardner specialise in Inerted and 10 bar PSR designs. With the ever-increasing toxicity levels of active ingredients, the need to protect operators from hazardous materials becomes more critical. At Kek-Gardner, equipment is designed to provide the highest levels of primary containment and protection within our core equipment e.g. Glove boxes are used in high containment applications and also offer CIP capabilities and other features such as remote drive through glove box with motor in non-isolated (grey) area.
