Measuring particle size in running processes - Parsum has stood for this since 20 years with its own complete solutions.
Founded in 1997 by former employees of Chemnitz University of Technology, Parsum has now become a recognized international supplier of PAT solutions for the chemical and pharmaceutical industries. At the beginning was a patented measuring method and the conviction that there is a great need in industry and R&D to measure particle sizes directly in the process to monitor, control and optimize these processes.
The measurement method of the Spatial Filter Velocimetry was further developed in such a way that, beside particle speed also particle size distributions can be measured. In contrast to the classical particle measurement methods with sampling and laboratory analysis
From the beginning, Parsum used the in-line measurement, where particles do not have to leave the process space and the measurement results are available immediately and continuously. Several patents were granted for this procedure in Germany, Europe and the USA.
In 1998, Parsum installed its first measuring instrument with typical probe-design at a fine chemicals manufacturer in Germany to determine the powder quality in a grinding process. The probe design without mechanically adjustable parts has become an important success factor and has been maintained up to today's probe types. As a result, installation in existing systems is easily possible.
In addition to the fine chemicals, food and basic industries, with the IPP 70- probe type Parsum offers a GMP-compliant solution for the pharmaceutical industry. Above all, the consistent development of accessories for process adjustment, the so-called "process interface", led to Parsum becoming a market leader in the field of particle measurement in fluidized bed processes. Inline dispersing technology in particular contributed to the fact that the measuring probes can also determine the particle size distribution in very dense, moist and dusty processes.
Parsum can now look back on more than 350 installations. In addition to globally operating pharmaceutical companies and companies in the food and chemical industry, the customer base also includes numerous universities and research facilities. Since 2003, Malvern Instruments, a world-leading supplier of particle measurement technology has become a partner of Parsum for international sales. Parsum probes are currently used in 22 countries around the world.
Parsum has invested more than ½ million EUR in several R & D projects in cooperation with customers, plant manufacturers and universities within the last few years.
Parsum is thus in a very good position for future growth. In addition to the general trend towards "Industry 4.0" this is promoted in the pharmaceutical industry mainly by the increasing direct integration of PAT into new production facilities and a growing trend towards continuous production processes.
