The Next Generation Impactor (NGI) is a high-performance, precision, particle classifying cascade impactor, designed specifically for the pharmaceutical industry for testing metered-dose inhalers (MDI), dry-powder inhalers (DPI), nebulizers and nasal sprays.
The impactor itself comprises just three main parts:
- The cup tray containing the eight collection removable impaction cups used to collect the samples prior to analysis.
- The bottom frame (with Handle attached) used to support the cup tray, which conveniently inserts and removes collection cups from impactor, providing structure for clamping and sealing mechanism.
- The lid containing the inter-stage passageways and the seal body which holds the nozzles (accelerate air streams to impact particles on collection cups) incl. all O-Rings in place.
In routine operation, the three parts are held together using the handle clamping mechanism. Each circular nozzle assembly (stage) is held above a tear-shaped cup in a single seal body.
The accessories of the NGI include:
- Induction Port (compendial method of attaching inhalers to impactor. Ph.Eur./USP Induction Port comes with titanium nitride coating on exterior male taper)
- Pre-Separator (captures large diluent particles. The Pre-Separator’s main function is to retain the large, inert particles typically found in dry-powder inhalers. The Three-Piece Pre-Separator consisting of Bottom, Insert and Top is designed to capture these particles without affecting the size distribution of the active pharmaceutical ingredient (API).
- State of the art aerodynamic performance
- Operates at any flow rate between 15 and 100 L/min
- Particle size range covered: 0.24 to 11.7 microns (dependent on flow rate)
- 7 impaction stages total with 5 stages always in the cut-off range between 0.54 and 6.12 microns
- Corrosion resistant construction
- Electrically conductive; unaffected by static
- Excellent accuracy providing high-accuracy data, reproducibility and stage efficiency: all stages 500 < Re < 3000
- Easy drug recovery with low inter-stage losses
- One Pre-Separator for entire range of 30 L/min to 100 L/min w/o changing parts
- 316 Stainless Steel USP Induction Port
- Meets and exceeds all USP and EP specifications
There are eight nozzle pieces in the NGI, corresponding to seven size-fractionation stages and a micro-orifice collector (MOC) that takes the place of a final filter.

2. Copley Scientific Critical Flow Controller TPK 2:
Copley Scientific is recognized as world’s leading manufacturer of inhaler test equipment and is a major supplier of test equipment for pharmaceutical solid dosage forms, including tablet dissolution, disintegration, friability, hardness and powder testers.
The Critical Flow Controller is designed to generate a standardized square-wave breath profile suitable for the routine testing of “passive” breath activated devices such as Dry Powder Inhalers, where the delivered and fine particle dose of the device is dependent on the strength and duration of the patient’s inspiration.
It controls and documents all the critical parameters associated with the delivered dose testing and aerodynamic particle size distribution measurement of Dry Powder Inhalers (DPIs).
