Sterilization of ampoules
Output up to 168 kg/h
Open-top ampoules can be sterilized and depyrogenized in a
- fully automatic sterilizing tunnel
available in a wide range of sizes and capacities for industrial ampoule processing.
During the continuous transport through the tunnel the ampoules are dried, sterilized, depyrogenized and then cooled sufficiently for immediate subsequent filling and sealing. The sterilizing is carried out by a low turbulence displacement air flow which is circulated through a high efficiency particulate air filter (HEPA filter) and then directed vertically down onto the ampoule neck.
The sterilizing tunnel opens into a clean room where the ampoules are conveyed into a filling and sealing machine by means of special transport units.
