Summary for Patent: 6,991,191
Title:Method of using a small scale mill
Abstract: A small-scale or micro media-mill and a method of milling materials or products, especially pharmaceutical products, use a dispersion containing attrition milling media and the product to be milled. The milling media can be polymeric, formed of polystyrene or cross-linked polystyrene, having a nominal diameter of no greater than 500 microns. Other sizes include 200 microns and 50 microns and a mixture of these sizes. The mill has a relatively small vessel having an opening, an agitator, a coupling and a motor. The agitator can have a rotor and a shaft extending therefrom. The rotor can be cylindrical or have other configurations, and can have tapered end surfaces. The coupling can close the vessel opening, or attaching the coupling to the motor can close the opening. The coupling has an opening through which the rotor shaft extends into the motor. A sealing mechanism, such as a mechanical or lip seals the shaft while permitting the rotor shaft to rotate. The vessel can contain one or more ports for circulating the dispersion, where milling can be made in batches or recirculated through the milling chamber. The media can be retained in the vessel or recirculated along with the process fluid. The rotor is dimensioned so that its outer periphery is spaced with a small gap from an inner surface of the vessel. The vessel also can have a way of cooling the dispersion.
