The Standard Group of Companies is a leading supplier of equipment in the chemical and pharmaceutical industry.

The Schematic Engineering Industries division design, manufacture, install and commission a range of substance mixing and blending equipment which includes large particle size reduction designs such as the De-Lumper system.

A de-lumper is generally used in the chemical and pharmaceutical industries on small and larger scales.

These machines are reasonably simple, extremely reliable and robust, so can be classed as a cheap but effective option.

The machines are also very flexible and are used to process many types of material which includes: -

  • Wet
  • Dry
  • Tacky
  • Malleable
  • Hard

In manufacturing businesses, these machines are found in various places where the process media needs to be reduced to an appropriate and workable size.

Due to the fact these machines are robust, a key advantage is they protect less hard-wearing machines further down the production line.

Normally made from stainless steel which is polished, the de-lumper is a cost-effective solution to ensure correct particle size processing.

The Schematic Engineering Industries De-Lumper is mainly used to reduce crystallised forms of chemicals so a dry powder is made prior to tablet formation.

Other materials that are processed using a de-lumper are:-

  • Chemicals
  • Sugar
  • Food
  • MineralsStandard Group de lumper systems 1
  • Colours
  • Plastics
  • Pharmaceuticals
