Alfa Laval has acquired PremierTec Ltd. and their patented liquid mixing technology, targeting the pharmaceutical and biotechnology industries.
The acquisition strengthens Alfa Laval’s goal of being the industry’s first choice by offering the most complete line of tank equipment – featuring the new patented magnetic mixer technology, leading Toftejorg tank cleaning equipment, and BioPharm grade tank pumps and valves.
PremierTec products are designed to advance the liquid mixing process for the pharmaceutical, biotechnology and food industries and feature an innovative magnetic mixer. The patented design has a strong magnetic coupling between the impeller and the driving magnets which causes the impeller to levitate or float, with no direct contact with the bearing surfaces. This allows for continued mixing until a tank is empty, and achieves a validated mix to a much lower tank level compared to other mixing products. As a result, the customer saves product, time and ultimately operating costs.
The PremierTec portfolio also includes a range of specialty Pharma valves – often bundled together with mixers. All products have 3.1 traceability with USP Class VI compliant mixing components.
