At this temperature, it takes only 9.5 seconds to reduce the bacterial endotoxin level by 1-log. A 4-log reduction will take 38 seconds, whilst a 6-log reduction will take 57 seconds.
Heat is generated by silicon controlled rectifier elements. Depending on the formal, vials stay inside the sterilising chamber for approximately 6-10 minutes. The recirculated hot air is blown at a speed of approximately 0.7m/s over the vials, and remains within 2°C of its setpoint.
PennTech sterilising tunnels are fully compatible with PennTech vial handling solutions and trayloaders and can be integrated into other existing or new installations.
