The ability to create safe products of consistent quality is the sine qua non of manufacturing equipment in the pharmaceutical industry. After companies are sure that equipment meets this condition, they can look for other features that enhance efficiency or make operators' jobs easier. This month's products offer various benefits for pharmaceutical production lines. Spiroflow's redesigned bulk-bag filler is intended to be convenient for personnel to use. A new induction cap sealer from Enercon Industries is meant to enhance a packaging line's productivity. MKS Instruments's system for sanitizing process water is designed not to require extensive employee training.
Redesigned bulk-bag filler offers convenience
Sealer enhances productivity
The unit's redesigned cap-inspection system is integrated electrically and mechanically with the sealer to reduce setup time. The system's recipe-management capabilities let operators store parameters for various products by name and perform product changeover easily. Users also can block other operators from adjusting the system.
The sealer's touchscreen improves operator control and displays faults in descriptive text instead of codes. The sealer also provides network connectivity, thus allowing packagers to control and monitor cap sealing data remotely from a central location.
Sanitization system provides turnkey solution
The system sounds alarms for high and low concentrations and detects ozone leaks. Operators can break the ozone down into benign components by applying heat. The Liquozon Ultra unit is mounted on a skid and accommodates water flows of 10–30 gal/min with minimal pressure drop. Installation requires few connections and can be completed quickly.
