terminal sterilization

The unit's design offers the best performance for the terminal sterilization of parenteral solutions. High production capacity: A large variety of cylindrical chambers (without jacket) that enable high production loads and rectangular, horizontal sliding, cross-section doors, made out of AISI 316L stainless steel. The batch is loaded onto trolleys or pallets for loading to and unloading from the chamber. Ergonomics and flexibility: The loading and unloading logistics can be performed manually and fully automatically in the event of heavy and large loads. The automatic loading and unloading system consists of a rail system installed in front of the chamber mouth, where the trolleys or pallets are accumulated. The pallets, moving on skates, are introduced with a mechanical traction system located underneath the rails. As an alternative to this system, the autoclave can be installed inside a trench so that the loading is performed at floor level, using manual traction. Fully sanitary design: All the installation's necessary components and piping (valves, connections, filters, fans, heat exchangers, etc.) are accompanied by their quality certificates, in accordance with the standards corresponding to a sanitary installation. Criteria for ensuring the equipment's long useful life and easy maintenance are also taken into account in the design and installation. These components in particular should be of a high quality, mainly using AISI 316L stainless steel, Tri-Clamp sanitary seals, pneumatic actuation valves, etc. A mixture of pure vapour and air is used for sterilization. When the chamber has been loaded, steam is introduced and mixed with the air; therefore no vacuum pump is required. One or more fans (depending on the length of the autoclave), located at the top of the chamber circulate the air and steam mixture. The purpose of these elements is to achieve good temperature uniformity inside the chamber as soon as possible. The load is cooled, after the sterilization temperature exposure time, with heat exchangers located on both sides of the chamber. Given that the load cooling time undergoes a lag with respect to the temperature inside the chamber, compressed air is directly introduced into the chamber to counteract the pressure difference so that the product is not damaged. Easy to operate: The control system is designed to readily perform comprehensive recipe management and production reporting. It has a PLC and PC with a supervisory, control and data acquisition system (SCADA).
