MultiBlend MB100 Powder Blender

The Pharmatech MultiBlend MB100 batch blender has been developed as a free standing, mobile tumble blender designed for efficient mixing of powders and granules.

It is ideal for blending larger laboratory scale batches and small pilot scale batches. The large range of container sizes available for use with the MB100 makes it an ideal machine for formulation development and R&D applications.

The MultiBlend MB100 blender is designed for use in GMP correct, hygienic or contained production areas. It is particularly suited for use within the pharmaceutical and allied industries (nutraceutical, food, cosmetic, chemical) as a portable mixer of small containers.

The MB100 is widely used within the pharmaceutical industry for blending small scale solid dosage (secondary) and API (primary) product batches

Trolleys for Blending Containers :

Trolleys are required when the blending container (shell) and contents weigh over 15kg. The trolley ensures the shell is presented at the correct height to the drive axle coupling.

Blending Containers

The MultiBlend MB100 can blend containers of any shape and any size from 0.1L up to 100L. The most common container shapes being:

•  Drum (barrel)
•  V-Shell (vee shell, y cone)
•  IBC (bin, tote)
•  Double Cone

In addition to our standard container range Pharmatech are able to offer an extensive range of container designs:

•  Replicates of existing containers
•  Scale models of production shells
•  Special shaped containers to meet process requirements.

Blending Containers
The MB100 can blend with containers of any shape. The most common container shapes are drum, V-shell, IBC and Double Cone.
The MB100 blender can handle any shape of blending container


The MB100 blender is fitted with the Quick-Change clamp system that ensures containers are detachable and easily interchangeable. The container changeover is carried out without the need for any tools.

Tilting BandClamp

The drive shaft on the MB100 is horizontal - ideal when blending with V-shells, IBCs or Double Cones - however for efficient blending drums should be tilted to an angle of 25° from the vertical. The Tilting Band Clamp allows drums to be loaded from normal trolleys and then manually tilted for blending.

The PharmaBlend Range

The MB100 forms part of the PharmaBlend range of blenders. Alongside the MultiBlend MB100 are the AgiBlend AB100 agitated blender, and the BlendView BV100 PAT blender.

The AgiBlend AB100 - The blending action of the MB100 can be intensified to provide a high shear blending action within the container shell, through the introduction of the AgiBlend. The AgiBlend system incorporates an intensifier bar within the body of the container. Highly developed seal systems within the container prevent premature wear and product ingress into the seals, and along with the detachable drive connection ensure the containers remain interchangeable.

The BlendView BV100 - Combines the flexibility of the MB100 with Process Analytical Technologies (PAT), and more specifically Near Infra-Red (NIR) blend analysis. The NIR probe mounted through the blender drive shaft takes measurements of the powder/granules throughout the blending process and enables you to see what is happening in real-time during blending. The NIR system identifies the blending end point and helps you to understand your process, allowing you to increase the efficiency of your blending processes.
