Tube Filler FP Sterile
(up to 220 tubes/min.)

The FP Sterile platform for tube filling is the only tube filling machine worldwide to meet all relevant EDEHG and cGMP guidelines. It enables all paste-like products to be filled into metal, plastic or laminate tubes under sterile conditions.

ADVANTAGES

  • The materials used mean the machine surface can be sterilized by means of gas purging with hydrogen peroxide (H2O2). Disinfection is generally performed via alcohol-based rapid disinfection.
  • All angles between parts and components that are in contact are ≥90° and are equipped with seamless seals that are approved for filling and cleaning.
  • All components and sensors in the FP Sterile tube filler platform are fully encapsulated, making them easy to clean.
  • Glove ports are installed at all the key manual access points on the machine.
  • In the event of product or batch changeovers, all product contact parts can be cleaned and sterilized using the integrated CIP/SIP system, without needing to be removed and reinstalled.
  • There is no scope for potential ‘dead spaces’ where residues or bacteria could accrue and propagate
  • All product contact parts are electropolished and have a surface finish of ≤ 0.8 μm as standard.
  • In the product area and on process valves, the seals used are produced from FDA+EMEA/410/01-certified silicones and FPM. In the injection and non-product area, seals are made from FPM (Viton®).
  • Format parts with a surface finish of at least Ra ≤ 0.8 μm are manufactured from the heat-resistant and durable plastic PVDF (polyvinylidene fluoride) or PEEK polymer. These materials are not sensitive to high temperatures (up to 130°C in autoclaves), nor the cleaning agents used during sterilization.
  • The machine is controlled via a stainless steel version of the user-friendly IWK operator panel with a 15.4” monitor.
