Stainless Steel Processor-Kettle

By: Pharmaceutical Online  09-12-2011

Walker's Processor-Kettle, a variant of the PZ-CB processor, is a sanitary, high-performance, insulated, multi-purpose cooker kettle designed to perform high speed mixing, blending, heating and cooling of a wide range of products including viscous materials.

The Processor Kettle meets national and United States Public Heath Service requirements and the 3A Sanitary Standards for batch processors.

The PZ-CB-K features a cone bottom, pitched to a center outlet and an agitator system of dual counteracting design to assure a thorough uniform blending of products and incorporation of ingredients. One agitator is the scraper type with removable molded nylon blades which continuously wipe the bottom and sidewalls to blend the product, increase heat transfer efficiency and to aid in unloading. The counteracting agitator typically has an offset turbine style blade to promote a vertical movement component to the mixing action.

Standard sizes from 200 to 3000 gallons and larger, however vessels as small as 10 gallons and as large as 10,000 gallons have been fabricated for certain applications. For products requiring special care in handling, the Processor-Kettle can be equipped to unload under pressure.

Emflon AVF Autoclave Vent Filters

Vacuum break filters used at the end of the sterilising cycle must therefore satisfy these standards and prove reliable and effective even under extremes of operating conditions. Product sterilization using the vacuum autoclave method is a critical process demanding the highest performance standards for equipment and precise quality control procedures.


High Voltage Leak Detector Type HLVD 924

This HVLD leak detector operates based on the high voltage test method and the electrical conductivity of the fill product packaged in a non-conductive plastic ampoule. Rommelag's high voltage leak detector represents a testing method at high capacity, without risk of contamination of product and does not require human intervention.


PennTech Sterilizing/Depyrogenation Tunnel Series PST

Beginning with the infeed, PennTech has designed a unique vial loading system, providing the customer with a flexible washer-tunnel floor plan layout. The advantage is a quick installation without the need of having to install cables through the ceiling between the tunnel and the control cabinet. All variables, such as belt speed, temperature setting, door height setting, air balancing, are part of the recipe per vial.

Lyophilization - HollisterStier

Automatic cold shelf loading and unloading, and clean in place and steam in place dehumidification systems are just some of the features that our large lyophilizers provide. Jubilant HollisterStier's Spokane facility offers two GEA 385 ft2 and two BOC Edwards 220 ft2 lyophilizers in the high-speed commercial filling suites. The Montreal suite houses two BOC/Edwards lyophilizers with production capacity of 374 ft2 of freeze-drying shelf space.


Tray Dryer Powder Containment

The issue of containment for this type of process equipment is unique in that open scooping of powder onto multiple trays that get slotted into the dryer one at a time prohibits a mass, single transfer as with charging a vessel through a nozzle. Drug product and associated process tools can either be preloaded into the enclosure or bagged into the isolated area via bag in/bag out canisters or larger drum ring attachment canisters.
