Type 401/404
Laminar Flow Tunnel for continuous Sterilization
of Ampoules, Vials, Cartridges and Syringes

The containers are fed automatically from an upstream machine or manually using trays. Subsequently the containers enter the single frame tube into 3 major zones: a) infeed, b) sterilization, c) cooling zone. The sterilization is performed using hot air, which is heated by an electric heating coil and constantly recirculated. Heat resistant high-capacity particle filters guarantee a Class A (100) clean room specification. The filters are mounted without a gasket to minimize generation of particles. The cooling zone gently cools down the containers before they are automatically transferred to a machine downstream.

Main Features:

  • Air convection pre-heating and sterilizing zone for energy efficiency and gentle heating of the containers
  • Integrated transport belt with automatic tensioning and monitoring of the belt position
  • Temperature and differential pressure indicators ensure ideal and repeatable machine settings
  • Optimum temperature distribution is achieved by using multiple sensors and control stations
  • Collection system for broken glass
  • System control and monitoring of all process-relevant data via PLC
  • User-friendly touch screen operation
