Pharmaceutical industry

For the pharmaceutical industry, we mostly grind exotic herbal plants before supercritical or classical extraction. We often unload 40 feet containers of herbal plants directly into our storage. We send samples to the client, who takes the decision to proceed with grinding or not.

It's important with a careful sorting of the goods. If the raw material is contaminated with different herbs or other foreign bodies, the extraction process brings out wrong molecules.

Our clients prefer to import entire herbs to avoid cheating and to be able to identify and analyse them before grinding. The herbs must be ground just-in-time to avoid losses of active substances.

A correct particle size distribution is important. Fine dust clog the filters in the extraction process, meanwhile coarse powder makes the extraction less efficient.
