Aseptic Filling Equipment Improves Flexibility

Published on: 

Watson-Marlow Fluid Technology Group’s Flexicon FlexFeed20 (FF20) automatic vial and bottle filling system accommodates more bottle sizes with faster changeover.

A new version of the Flexicon FlexFeed20 (FF20) automatic vial and bottle filling system from Watson-Marlow Fluid Technology Group features improved flexibility, faster set-up, and greater protection from contamination for open vials/bottles. The Flexicon FF20 has already been used for small batches in contract filling and diagnostics operations, particularly with many different sizes of bottles or vials. The newest version of the FF20 also accommodates bottle sizes from 12 mm (0.47 in.) to 78 mm (3.07 in.) in diameter. Changeover between bottle sizes is now faster. The FF20 can now be set up in less than two minutes, with no tools, format parts, or special skills required.

The new system uses an intuitive, icon-based human-machine interface (HMI). Because the HMI is on the front of the unit, settings can easily be adjusted, and the risk of operators contaminating open bottles is reduced.
