Quadro's recognized leadership in specialized process equipment was launched by a single idea that has stood the test of time. The four founders of Quadro originated the concept of the conical mill or "Comil", and in 1976, were the first to bring it to market. A revolutionary idea at the time, the conical mill has proven to be one of the industry's most durable and most imitated advances in size reduction technology.

The Quadro® Sifter - For More Efficient Delumping of Pharmaceutical Sugars
Sugar is used as an excipient in pharmaceutical applications to improve palatability of medications. With global sourcing of ingredients, the risk of foreign contaminants and product lumping due to heat and moisture has increased, threatening downstream equipment and final product. Traditionally, large vibratory sifters have been used to capture potential impurities, but prove cumbersome when trying to fit under existing bulk bag unloading equipment and can sometimes impart unwanted size reduction.
To meet the needs of today’s lean manufacturing practices, Quadro introduced the Quadro ® Sifter. The Quadro ® Sifter offers a compact, in-line, high-capacity, vibration-free solution for today’s efficiency-minded ingredient manufacturers. The Quadro ® Sifter’s compact design easily fits in-line with existing bulk bag unloaders. As the Sifter is a vibration-free technology, it easily interfaces with upstream and downstream equipment using triclamp connections, for a dust-free environment.
