The paper describes the development of periodic modules used for the peptide synthesis of hydroxamic acid. A powder conveyor using the principle of positive weighing distribution is described. Purification is provided using automatic filtration and a liquid—liquid extraction module separation device. Device quality is improved using failure mode and effects analysis.
