The Dara SFL Syringe Filling and Plugging machine from NJM Packaging is an aseptic filling and plugging system for syringes or vials in a nest or tray. The modular system can be equipped with an isolation barrier or restricted access barrier and a peristaltic pump or valveless rotary piston pump to meet the needs of each customer. Other options include a clean-in-place (CIP) system, a sterilize-in-place (SIP) system, and gas flushing.

The compact system has a footprint of 72 in. (183 cm) long and 36 in. (91 cm) wide and features entrance and exit pass-boxes where operators load and remove nests or trays of syringes or vials. The system fills and closes up to 35 units per min. if equipped with one filling head and one closing head and up to 80 units per min. with two heads each, based on a 1-mL fill. It accommodates glass and plastic syringes with fill volumes from 0.5 to 20 mL and vials with fill volumes from 0.5 to 50 mL.

Recipe-driven changeovers can be achieved in less than 10 minutes with no tools. New formats to handle a different package type and/or size with a different tray configuration can be added easily. It can even be changed from a one-head system to a two-head system in the field, enabling it to expand as users’ needs grow.
