The customer who contacted us is a pharmaceutical industry equipment manufacturer. The need was to equip with nozzles for washing and drying a system for the decontamination of the outside of the vials.
A conveyor arm conveys the vials along a path that first washes and then dries them. U-shaped manifolds first wash and then dry the moving ampoules that pass through them.
The vials are held in position by grippers placed at their top.
This precaution has two advantages: it minimizes the risk of contamination of the inside of the bottle with the sanitizing liquid and exposes the base of the vial to sanitation.
Il sistema può lavare e asciugare flaconi che contengono dai 4ml ai 123ml di farmaco, alti dai 35mm ai 100mm.
One of the difficulties to face was then sizing and placing the nozzles so that it was possible to reach the same levels of decontamination for vials of all sizes.
