PennTech to Launch New Technologies at INTERPHEX


NEW YORK, NY; MARCH 19, 2015 – International Pharmaceutical Expo (INTERPHEX), the premier pharmaceutical and biopharmaceutical development and manufacturing event dedicated to innovation, technology and knowledge, and sponsored by the Parenteral Drug Association (PDA), today announced that PennTech Machinery Corporation, manufacturer of complete aseptic vial processing lines, will launch new technologies at INTERPHEX 2015, April 21-23 held at the Javits Center in New York.

“We are delighted that PennTech has chosen to launch new aseptic technologies at INTERPHEX,” said Ed Several, Senior Vice President and General Manager, INTERPHEX. “PennTech is the only U.S. based manufacturer of complete aseptic vial processing equipment and serves the pharma, biotech, animal health and compounding pharmacy industries. We are certain that both exhibitors and key decision makers attending the show will benefit from seeing first-hand PennTech’s simplicity of equipment design.”

“PennTech will introduce a new vial filling/stoppering/capping machine, the FSC-1R at INTERPHEX 2015,” said Vincent Smit, President, PennTech Machinery Corporation. “We are delighted to showcase our manufacturing solutions that focus on high quality, compact footprint and efficient design principles. We invite everyone to stop by booth 2954 and experience our innovation first-hand.”

PennTech will showcase the following technologies within their exhibit booth.

FSC-1R Filling Stoppering Capping
New, state-of-the-art aseptic filling machine, model FSC-1R, designed for up to 50 vial per minute production with a compact rotary layout. This machine can handle a wide vial range of 2cc-100cc with the latest in peristaltic pump filling technology using driven rollers with statistical or net weigh IPC options.

The EVW-Series exterior vial washers are in-line decontamination systems to completely neutralize and wash vials while protecting the caps from moisture. This critical process protects the operators and general public from overexposure to harmful drugs and minimizes rejects during automated inspection.

External Vial Washer EVW-60
PennTech Product The EVW-60 is a new low to medium speed external vial washer designed to rinse pharmaceutical vials ranging from 2 ml-100 ml for rates up to 200 vials/min. The machine measures 518x1270x1274mm (WxLxH) and can be used as a stand-alone unit with an out feed turntable or integrated into a filling line. 

External Vial Washer EVW-100
PennTech ProductThe EVW-100 is the only decontamination system to completely encapsulate the vial cap with a watertight seal as high-pressure water sprays scour the sides and base of the vial. The cleaning process can be easily validated with repeatable recipe-driven washing and drying settings to accommodate containers from 2ml to 500 ml at rates up to 450 vials per minute. 13 mm and 20mm caps can be processed on the machine without the need for change parts. The tool-less changeover takes 5 minute to exchange the in feed and out feed timing screws.  The piping for washing and drying as well as the electrical control system is housed in the base of the machine.

RW-250 Vial Washer
PennTech ProductA semi-automatic vial washer for low speed pharmaceutical and biotech applications. Throughput is typically 20-70 vials per minute. The typical batch size: 1,000-8,000 vials. Vial range 2-100 ml glass or plastic (change parts required). The RW-250 includes 6 stations for water (RO/DI, WFI) and sterile air blowing. Optionally, for those using bagged WFI, a WFI skid with an 80 liter tank is available with a heating element, bringing the WFI up to 80° C. The skid includes a sanitary centrifugal pump, providing the vial washer with 80 psi (~5 bar) water pressure. After cleaning, the vials are discharged onto a tray for further processing.

Trayloader TL-100
PennTech ProductPennTech TL series of tray loaders are unique to the industry in that they have a buffer plate that will accumulate vials while the operator replaces the full tray with an empty tray. This feature allows continuous production while the trays are being exchanged resulting in the highest yield per footprint in the industry. The TL-100 is controlled by a Programmable Logic Controller (PLC) and will handle plastic and glass vials. The unit is designed to handle trays up to 610 mm (24") wide (open end) and up to 610 mm (24") deep. Tray materials can be metal, cardboard, corrugated plastic, or rigid plastic. This unique tray loader is completely servo driven and requires no change parts. It is perfect for aseptic freeze-drying applications as well as packaging solutions.

INTERPHEX 2015 takes place April 21-23, at the Javits Convention Center in New York, New York. Register Today.
