Vacuum Pumps

At the heart of every inhaler testing system is the Pump. The Pharmacopoeias are careful to point out that “a vacuum pump with excess capacity must be selected in order to draw air at the designated volumetric flow rate” through the system and in the case of Dry Powder Inhalers, to generate sonic flow.
Copley offers a choice of three pumps dependent on the set-up concerned and the capacity required.

HCP5 - High Capacity Vacuum Pump

An established high capacity pump for the higher, sonic flow rate testing requirements of DPIs (though it can equally well be used for MDIs, Nasal Sprays and Nebulisers), the HCP5 high capacity pump achieves maximum flow rates of up to 416 L/min, where this flow rate is still inadequate.

HCP5 Features

  • Optimal for higher, sonic flow rate testing requirements of DPIs
  • Regulated inlet: flow rate can be adjusted between 0 – 250 L/min (for MDIs etc.)
  • Unregulated inlet: flow rate can be adjusted between 0 -416 L/min (by passes flow control)
  • If flow rate still inadequate, connect a second HCP5 in parallel (max. flow rate 833 L/min).
  • Unit dimensions: 320 x 560 x 390 mm (w x d x h)
