• Dimensions
  • Purpose
    Compact in-line vial decontaminating machine designed to rinse pharmaceutical vials
  • Vial Range
  • Output
    Up to 500 vials per minute
  • Changeover
    5 minutes (tool-less and the only change part is the vial transport timing screw)

– Can be used as a stand-alone unit with an infeed and outfeed turntable or integrated into a filling linehigh output evw 2
– Separate drying stem is required to assure bone-dry vials when exiting the decontamination machine
– No alignments of spray nozzles
– No format parts required for 13 and 20mm caps
– Equipped as standard with an Allen Bradley CompactLogix PLC and an Allen Bradley PanelView Plus 600 Human Machine Interface (HMI)
– Menu-driven operation through the human machine interface (HMI)
– To avoid unauthorized access to machine functions password levels are implemented
– PLC-controlled servo motors automatically set the output rate, the vial height and the water/air flow per vial size
– All electrical components are installed in the electrical cabinet located in the base of the machine
– Piping system and electrical cabinet are installed inside the frame of the machine, resulting in a small footprint and a clean installation
– A vial-dedicated timing screw over the length of the machine captivates and transports the vial through the machine 
– The vials ride on a narrow rail and rotate continuously during their travel in the machinehigh output evw 3
– Enclosing the aluminum cap between two opposed belts creates a seal that prevents the cleaning agent from entering the cap area and allows pressurized water for cleaning the entire vial body, including the bottom
– Rinsing is accomplished by low pressure water nozzles, cleaning the vials from the neck down (while they rotate)
– Drying can be accomplished by either compressed facility air or by an on-board air blower in the base of the machine
– An accident prevention hood or under pressurized hood with gloves ports is available
– All stainless steel, heavy duty construction with tempered glass windows and doors
