TS Terminal Sterilizers
The Sterilizers type TS-AS & TS-OW are specifically designed for the Terminal Sterilization of liquids contained in sealed containers (plastic bags, glass bottles, BFS bottles, syringes, ampoules, etc.) as they are prepared to provide an automatic differential pressure compensation based on product probes (RTD) temperature measurement (ΔT). This kind of control prevents the deformation, damaging, and bad coloring of the plastic containers.
Pre-selected and custom made programs for any need. The machining process is developed by our Automation Department following the current codes/standards and type of product to be processed. Two are the methods/typology currently used: Terminal Sterilization using Air + Steam Mixture, machine type TS-AS These Sterilizers are fitted with an integrated ventilator system for mixing clean steam with air, which becomes the sterilization media. This processing method should be recommended for complex plastic or glass containers such as pre-filled syringes or vials in which condensates may stagnant and be a source of problems in the finished product. The system guarantees an excellent distribution of the heat during all sterilization phase (temperature deviation below ± 1 °C). These autoclaves also provide better drying finish thanks to the ventilator system and thus, products are downloaded ready for packing and labeling. Terminal Sterilization using Overheated Water, machine type TS-OW These Sterilizers are fitted with a high flow recirculation system by a sanitary pump and heat exchanger of multi-tubes double-heads type that allows using (WFI or Demi) water as heat transfer media for heating up, sterilizing, and cooling down the load. The system guarantees an excellent distribution of the heat during all sterilization phase (temperature deviation below ± 1 °C). This processing method provides faster cycles but containers come out damp. Anyhow, it is the preferred method in most cases due to its simplicity, economy, and ease of validation.
