FOW – SUPERHEATED WATER STERILIZER

FOW water cascade sterilizers are able to perform counterpressure sterilization through superheated water.

In compliance with cGMP and FDA standards for LVP products, FOW autoclaves are suitable for treating loads in containers that may be deformed due to the difference in pressure between the chamber and the container itself.

Where the product is liable to separation or for accelerating thermal transition phases, the whole load can be rotated during the entire sterilization process.

  • Process optimization: The process is faster than the air-steam sterilization process. FOW is also an ideal sterilizer for <105 °C processing.

Wet loads can be overcome using an automated drying extension with the installation of specific drying solutions downstream of the sterilization chamber.

  • Easy validation & integrationThema4 process controller is pre-validated according to GAMP5 and in compliance with 21 CFR Part 11, thus resulting in shortest qualification time and minimizing project risks. An open system architecture that can be integrated with SCADA system and other Fedegari machines.
  • Highest productivity: Fedegari R&D laboratory is available to develop the best treatment solution for your specific needs. We run tests with different loads and requirements.

TECHNICAL FEATURES

  • FOW superheated water sterilizer is equipped with AISI 316Ti (AISI 316L upon request) stainless steel chamber.
  • Besides the standard versions from 830 to 14.800 liters, the loading capacity is fully customizable according to customer needs.
  • Chamber internal surface electropolished with a roughness Ra <0,4 μm.
  • One or two doors with vertical or hinged opening systems to cope with available space in the smartest possible way.
  • 5 RTD PT100 probes for temperature control (2 fixed – in the filter and discharge – and 3 flexible for the load).
  • Automatic sterilization of the air filter with a fixed RTD PT100 temperature probe.
  • 2 validation ports.
  • Fedegari exclusive patented door gaskets assure 100% tightness.
  • Piping and valves in AISI 316L stainless steel.

APPLICATION FIELDS

  • Sterilization of parenteral solutions, liquids in sealed containers not deformable (eg. glass vials) and liquids in heat-sensitive sealed containers (eg. plastic bags or bottles).
  • Terminal sterilization of prefilled syringes (PFS).

SPECIAL APPLICATIONS

ROTATING LOAD

The load is held in rotation thanks to a special rotating drum inside the chamber. The rotation drum has a magnetic coupling and is adjustable in speed, the direction of rotation and intermittently. This system finds application in the treatment of suspensions and emulsions and ensures better performance of the tightness tests for ampoules under vacuum and more homogeneous heat transmission in the load.

Filling and Packaging Line for Flavoring

Recently, Cozzoli was approached by this customer who was looking to fill gallon-sized containers of liquid flavoring. This was to be a complete line that would incorporate filling, capping, labeling and case packing. Because of the high alcohol content of what was being filled, the filling and capping sections needed to also be explosion-proof.

With the required speed of 20 containers per minute and the containers being clear, it was decided that a 10-head In-Line Fill-To-Level and our Versacapper were the best machines for this application. By using a fill-to-level machine, the liquid in each container would appear to be visually identical. If a volumetric filler was used instead, the volume of each container would be accurate, but due to slight variations in the containers, the visual levels of the liquid could appear higher or lower.

After being capped, the containers would then be moved to another room, via conveyor, where they will be labeled and eventually packed into boxes.

For the labeling and case packing sections of this line, we reached out to our partners at ID Technology and EpsonThe challenge for these areas was that the customer wanted the labels to be print-on-demand. Rather than having the labels feed off of a role, which is the typical application, they needed to be fed directly from the printer to the labeler.

The biggest challenge of integrating the printer with the labeler is that the printer backs up about 12” every time it begins to print. To combat this issue, we used a loose-loop system that uses sensors to monitor the status of the printer and labels.

3 sensors were added into the loose-loop system. The lowest sensor monitors the loose loop to stop the printer when enough labels have been printed.  The middle sensor tells the printer to produce more labels.  The top sensor signals out-of-labels and stops the applicator until more are available. By using this loose-loop system we successfully integrated the printer with the labeler.

Finally, after labeling, the containers are then moved to a table where they are manually packed into boxes and fed through a case packer, which automatically closes, tapes and applies a label to the box.

ST-120S Industrial Cap Torque Tester

The ST-120S features a servo drive control, infinite chuck rotation, quick-change tooling, a color touchscreen interface, and faster cycle times.

The corrosion-resistant stainless steel head enclosure and anodized aluminum frame construction make the ST-120S ideally suited for the most demanding applications, such as testing closure torque at Carbonated Soda Drink (CSD), juice, bleach bottling operations as well as cleanroom environments.

The unit is equipped with anti-bridging, anti-tie down anti-repeat dual actuation safety start switches, but for maximum operator safety, the ST-120S can be also equipped with a full machine guard.

Features

  • Real-time, automatic display
  • NIST traceable calibration procedure
  • Strain gauge transducer technology
  • Automatic container clamping and closure gripping
  • Adjustable torque application speed
  • Counterbalance system for height adjustment
  • Infinite rotation (SERVO)
  • Encoder to measure the angular degree of rotation
  • Heavy-duty components

Testing Capabilities

  • Applied Torque: The ST-120 can be used as a benchtop capper, tightening the cap to a customer-defined setpoint.
  • Release Torque: The ST-120 is designed to accurately measure the release (thread break) torque of a cap.
  • Peak/Transient Torque: The standard ST-120 can measure and display the Applied or Release Peak in a torque testing cycle, however with optional hardware upgrades it is also possible to measure certain torque transients such as the engagement torque of a CR closure system or the peak of the bridge break torque of a Tamper Evident Band.
  • Container/Closure Fatigue: By allowing the ST-120 to apply and release the cap a number of times, it is possible to evaluate the effect of fatigue on the torque retention and seal quality of the closure and seal.
  • Release and Re-apply Torque: When packaging expensive products it is often required to return the tested container to the packaging line. By automatically re-applying the torque to the operator defined setpoint it is possible to save the product.
  • Topload Force (optional): This feature allows the monitoring and control of topload force. When testing child resistant caps or other closures requiring topload adjustment this feature allows the evaluation of topload force in the function of rotation and torque.

How does Vetromeccanica’s Vacuum Conveying Work?

Vacuum Conveying is the process of moving bulk dry materials, such as powders, from place to place within a factory using suction. The material is transferred in a network of tubing from the pickup point or source to the customers’ process. Most Vacuum Conveying System transfer product based on a timed interval to the vacuum receiver. At the end of the timed sequence, the discharge valve can open and the material conveyed can discharge into the process. 

There are two types of vacuum conveying. Dilute phase conveying and Dense phase conveying. 

  • Dilute Phase Conveying the material is entrained in the air stream and the is an almost equal part of air and product. This method is excellent for conveying almost any type of powder-like sugar or flour. 
  • Dense Phase Vacuum Conveying the material is transferred in slugs within the convey tubing. The material moves slower then dilute phase conveying and is an excellent choice for a friable product or a blend of powders. 

Vetrommecanica’s conveying systems differ from others because they increase the real plant efficiency. They are a major player in more than 70 Countries thanks to the care and attentiveness to details, capability to offer a 360° all-rounded service, and to their extremely skilled customer-care department.
