Fedegari BIO-DECONTAMINATION UNIT – FCDV

With the FCDV bio-decontamination unit you can bring inside the clean rooms all those products and instruments that cannot be thermally sterilized. Surface bio-decontamination of the load is carried out with vaporized hydrogen peroxide – H2O2.

Among the most reliable sporicidal agents, vaporized hydrogen peroxide (H2O2) is nowadays one of the most popular: its antibacterial, antimycotic and antiviral properties are well known and scientifically documented.

This solution is becoming increasingly relevant as the regulators shift their focus away from traditional moist- and dry-heat sterilization processes to address all other bioburden risks. Moreover, Fedegari has applied the Quality-by-design concept to the development of this innovative process equipment, in order to meet the current approach required by the EMA and FDA.

DESIGN & TECHNICAL FEATURES

  • Stainless steel AISI 316L chamber polished to strict sanitary standards (Ra <0.4μm).
  • Doors are made of AISI 316L stainless steel with a central glass panel
  • 100% air-tight guarantee: thanks to two separate inflatable gaskets seating in two slots mechanically machined all around the door with an additional leak-monitoring system.

ST-FT1 Chuck Calibrator

Mesa Labs’ new ST-FT1 is a universal handheld torque/force display that, when coupled with the Chuck calibrator adapter, can be used to verify/calibrate chuck capper heads. Cap adapters are easily replaceable to accommodate various chucks.

Possible causes of equipment related torque variation:

  • servo current fluctuation
  • temperature variation related torque fluctuation of a magnetic slip chuck
  • varying chuck speed
  • varying friction between the chuck and the cap OD (slippage)
  • topload force variation

To verify chuck-capper operation, use Mesa’s ST-FT1 chuck calibrator. This is a compact torque testing device for both engineering (FAT of capping equipment, troubleshooting torque issues of existing capping equipment) and production use (individual capper chuck adjustment). With this device, you can prove whether the torque variation is the result of servo current fluctuation (inconsistent application torque), product variation or another variable in the capping process (gripping pressure, topload, etc).

Target applications include but not limited to:

  • OEM/Packaging Engineer testing the performance/repeatability of the torque applied by capper chucks during machine design, factory acceptance testing/validation.
  • Packaging line operator verifying and adjusting capper chucks
  • Packaging Engineer evaluating whether torque variation is caused by the capping equipment or the package.

Contact Life Scientific, Inc today to discover more info regarding this very capable torque tester.
