High speed freeze-drying and line competence.
At ACHEMA, the INOVA H6-10 filling system for disposable syringes will dazzle onlookers with its output of 36,000 filled disposable syringes per hour--even though the maximum output for this machine type is 60,000 syringes per hour! The most impressive feature of this high-precision machine--composed of Inova and Klee components--is its turnkey competence. Line functions include cleaning, sterilizing, filling, freeze drying and closing, all with process controls. Klee will be at the fair with a pilot freeze dryer for lyophilized pharmaceuticals, which can operate under isolator conditions, even when loaded manually. And, in addition, the KUGLER Linoline offers maximum flexibility, not only with regard to filling quantities but also to closure types. Optima Group Pharma (Hall 3.0, Stand B2-C11) will present a comprehensive turnkey project for vials. The line can process both liquids and freeze-dried pharmaceuticals. The time-pressure dosing system is interfaced with 100% in-process control to simultaneously achieve the highest dosing precision and maximum product output. The IPC is functional at a speed of 200 vials per minute. An end-to-end isolator, reaching from the exit of the sterilization tunnel to the end of the closing processes, guarantees safety. Additional process controls and a CIP/SIP device complete the system. The line has been designed to fill quantities from 0.05 to 100 mL. Another noteworthy feature of the line layout is its optimum use of space, its user friendliness and the small number of operating staff required for operation. This vial line from Optima Group Pharma incorporates an unpacking unit, a washing machine, a sterilization tunnel, a filling and closing machine, a freeze-dryer with a loading and unloading system, an isolator, plus the crimping and coding stations.
