All-electric, blow–fill–seal machine reduces particulate generation

The all-electric model of the Asep-Tech Model 628 blow–fill–seal machine from Weiler Engineering reduces particulate generation compared to the non-electric model, which is beneficial for parenteral applications. The Model 628 has the flexibility to produce sterile, liquid-filled, tamper-evident containers ranging in size from 0.5 mL up to 500 mL, in full-scale production quantities. A two-piece, stepped-base design allows easy maintenance and convenient product discharge. An integral product buffer tank is designed to meet tight fill tolerances. Additional models are available to fulfill higher output and/or larger container size requirements.
