Following a successful tendering process, British Rema Process Equipment was recently awarded a €1.65 million contract to deliver an aluminium hydroxide milling and classification plant installed at Tulcea, Romania.
The plant, commissioned in January 2019, incorporates British Rema’s ball milling and classification technologies to enable the material to be processed at a variety of particle sizes, ranging from 10 to 150 microns, at a throughput of six tonnes per hour.
This project is designed to support the client’s R&D programmes for new market opportunities associated with aluminium hydroxide technology and has benefited from funding granted by the Ministry of European Funds, Romania.
Edita Stubbs has been appointed to the new role of Production Manager of British Rema’s contract processing division.
Edita brings to the company extensive production experience gained during 20 years as a production manager in international food companies. She will report to the Processing team’s general manager, and has responsibility for production activities, continuing to ensure clients’ requirements are met.
Her knowledge and experience of fast-paced production lines operating to GMP quality standards fits well with the company’s focus on continuous improvement of 5S-based ‘quality by design’ methods.
To support the new team structure, Ian Holmes has been promoted to the newly created position of Senior Team Leader.
Following 14 years working as an equipment operator and shift leader, Ian is well placed to take on this role. He is a highly valued member of the Processing team and has been instrumental in supporting the company’s key customers and growth over the last few years.
Following successful trials, British Rema is now micronising coating ingredients for an international Pharmaceutical coatings company.
British Rema was approached to mill a multi-component material to a tightly controlled particle size distribution requiring a maximum particle size of less than 30 microns. Such a demanding specification is essential for controlling the release rate of the active ingredients.
Richard Mellor, the technical and quality manager at British Rema commented, “We are excited to be working on this project with a new customer. Once again, we have been able to demonstrate our expertise in powder processing and our ability to adhere to exacting particle sizes and quality standards.”
