Filling Machines Medicals Made to Order
The speed, accuracy and repeatability of a Flexicon PF6 tabletop peristaltic filling machine from Watson-Marlow Pumps Group is helps suppliers of customised medicinal products to improve their process strategy.
As larger batches of medicals, up to 150 bottles in some instances, prove to be extremely challenging to fill accurately using a manual pipette, automation can make a big difference. The Flexicon PF6 offers high accuracy of ±0.5 %, which is obtained through Flexicon’s pulse-free peristaltic filling. A wide range of volumes from 0.5 ml to 250 ml can be filled, while changeover between batches or different liquids takes less than 60 seconds. Importantly, there is no potential for cross-contamination or requirement for cleaning validation as the liquid touches nothing but the tubing and the filling nozzle. Further, the system can be upgraded to add bottle handling and capping, making it fully automated.
