Solvent Dilution

Reduce cost and improve plant safety

Solvents are widely accepted reagents and cleaning agents for pharmaceutical products and eluting chromatography media. YMC’s EcoPrime Solvent Dilution systems are designed to perform highly controlled solvent dilution processes to generate ready-to-use solutions when needed, reducing tank requirements and the cost associated with handling large volumes and enhancing scheduling flexibility.

Types of dilution systems

Best-in-class design

Our systems use proprietary digitally controlled metering pumps that deliver precise and accurate volumes across a wide range of solvents, enabling dilution of concentrated solutions to precise concentrations exactly when and where needed. Systems also include sensors to monitor the dilution process and an optional heat exchanger and break tanks to manage temperature. System software and automation enable the user to configure and run recipes that precisely prepare diluted, ready-to-use solvent solutions.

The EcoPrime Solvent Dilution system:

  • Automatically prepares accurate and precise solutions at point-of-use or central location
  • Enables dilution of up to 50:1
  • Performs robust and simple dilution based on control with volumetric flow rate to ensure consistent composition
  • Features a fluidic design that facilitates mixing, reduces the time required to reach set points, and enables drainability
  • Includes user-adaptable, recipe-driven software with configurable, pre-programmed sequences that minimizes operator intervention

As with all YMC pharmaceutical equipment, the EcoPrime Solvent Dilution system is designed to meet high quality expectations. The system is manufactured with materials compatible with long-term solvent exposure. The design and construction of the equipment ensures a safe, ergonomic system suitable for use in GMP hazardous manufacturing environments.

EcoPrime Solvent Dilution Delivers:

  • A small footprint with limited requirement for tanks
  • Reproducible and accurate solutions with volumetric flow control
  • Less operator exposure to potential chemical hazards
  • Reduced labor costs
  • Increased process scheduling flexibility
  • Greater independence from supplier quantities
  • Reduced waste for leaner operation
  • A custom design that meets local hazardous environment electrical regulations
