SPE Series - New closure processing equipment

Sterile continuity is the vision.

The SPE Series is ideal for the treatment of closures for containers normally used in the pharmaceutical industry, where continuous sterility has to be maintained between different phases.

The SPE Series offers washing, rinsing, siliconizing, sterilizing, drying and cooling all in one solution and is compatible with different loading/unloading systems, with the ability to interface with vaporized hydrogen peroxide isolator.

Steelco produces a “Closure washer” version (LT series) which only provides washing, rinsing, siliconizing, drying and cooling phases.

Chamber volume
from 40 litres / 1.4 cu.ft
to 480 litres / 17 cu.ft

    Tamburo-settori-LST-TS-mixedLoading/unloading systems

    Automatic loading is undertaken using a: stopper storage tank with mixer, suction tube, measuring tank with sanitary valves and aspirator. Manual loading is carried out using AISI 304 stainless-steel containers of the same capacity as the machine baskets.

    Unloading systems
    Possibility to interface the unloading door with wheeled tanks, containers, sterile transfer bags and HPV (hydrogen peroxide vapor) isolator. Unloading door equipped with a system for interfacing with clean area (bio-seal frame with “FDA approved facilities”). Chamber doors made in accordance with requirements for sterile environments.

    Special applications: automatic unloading into Sartorius Bio-safe clean pre-sterilized bags through Biosteam port.
