Terracon Introduces Fully Customizable, Advanced-Technology Mixers with Metenova Zero-g Technology

FRANKLIN, MASSACHUSETTS, USA, November 20, 2019 — Terracon Corporation has introduced a line of turnkey, highly configurable, advanced-technology, magnetic-drive plastic mixing systems for a wide range of applications in the FDA- and GMP-compliant pharmaceutical markets. The systems combine Metenova AB’s Zero-g technology with Terracon’s 40+ years of expertise in providing application-specific mixing technology.

The fully customizable systems are designed for development and production processes where robustness, accuracy, flexibility, and non-metallic product contact are required. The turnkey systems save customers the time, cost, and risk of integrating motors, tanks, load cells, and accessories from multiple vendors. Rapid 6-week delivery will allow customers to formalize final specifications later in the development process — reducing capital risk and accelerating time to production.

“We are pleased to offer a line of advanced mixing systems that incorporates Metenova’s innovative technology,” said Chris McNary, vice president and general manager, Terracon. “This exciting new technology adds a high-value offering to Terracon’s full line of mixing systems.”

The highly efficient mixing systems are designed with low shear to protect high-value pharmaceutical products. Metenova’s proprietary Zero-g mix head technology levitates the mixer head vertically on a magnetic cushion. The design eliminates mechanical seals, acts as a shock absorber for the mixer to reduce the risk of particle shedding, and provides the highest level of aseptic design.

The mixer’s polypropylene construction and mix head are USP Class VI-, FDA-, and GMP-compliant and provide 100% non-metallic surface contact. Ports and accessories are configurable to specific application needs. The mixing systems are available in 50L, 400L, and 1,000L sizes and are now available for order.
