Oct. 16, 2012 - PRLog -- Whether it's engineering, food, cosmetics or pharmaceuticals, keeping vials and bottles clean and moving in the process industries is an ongoing battle. Simply maintaining cleanliness to a 'good housekeeping' standard is often not enough. There are many national and international hygiene directives in place to ensure the safety of the public and the operators. Many substances are potent or concentrated, with a high risk of toxicity.

Whether you know them as ampoule washers, bottle washers, or container washer machines, efficient vial washing devices are therefore essential to ensure the removal of any risk of contamination.

In a world where time is money, the fast and efficient washing, sterilising and drying of bottles and vials  is an essential part of ensuring a rapidly-moving and agile supply chain of containers. BPS rotary vial washers are able to process up to 24,000 glass and plastic vials per hour – vital in the process industries, which typically involve large volumes of bottles and vials.

The unique design, which incorporates non-penetrating nozzles, means there is an absolute minimum of contact between machine parts and containers, reducing the possibility of cross-contamination still further.

Downtime is also reduced by eliminating any possibility of nozzle bending or glass damage due to misfeeds or misalignments. In addition, the vial washing devices can be programmed to allow for the minimum of human intervention and the maximum turnaround of newly sterilised containers.

A system of dedicated change parts and automatic machine parameter adjustment means changeover can be accomplished in under fifteen minutes. The change parts and schedules are designed to ensure the most efficient possible use of water (WFI), depending on the size and volume of the containers being washed.

This flexibility helps to keep costs down and minimise the environmental impact. Rotary vial washers are compact and efficient in design, offering the maximum flexibilty in supply lines as well as a small 'footprint'.

The 'EVW' external vial washer series offers effective decontamination for the external surfaces of containers. High pressure water jets are used to 'scrub' away substances that are traditionally difficult to remove. Quick changeover is possible in just 10 minutes for vials which have the same neck  diameter, or 30 minutes where the cap-sealing belt needs to be changed.

So if you're in an industry where cost, consistency and keeping your ecological footprint to a minimum are increasingly important, vial washers are an increasingly important addition to your process industry toolkit.
