“We are excited to be exhibiting our industry leading technology at INTERPHEX,” said Tim Kram, General Manager, N.A., Rommelag USA. “We have a long history of meeting our customer’s expanding requirements in biopharmaceuticals with our new strategies and ongoing developments in the field of BFS technologies. The design of packaging systems to the production of in-line equipment, which can be added to the bottelpack® machines, has made Rommelag® the leading systems supplier in this field. We look forward to sharing our technologies in booth 3516.”

bottelpack® bp 430 Aseptic Packaging System

This Advanced Aseptic Rotary BFS system uses a single servo-driven mold to produce the containers. During operation the filling mandrels are always protected within the formed plastic parison. The only introductions to this area are filtered air (0.2 micron) and the product being filled. The bottelpack® 430 machine was designed with aseptic, high value, low volume, gas and temperature sensitive products in mind. Disposable fill systems, recirculation systems for suspensions and emulsions, CoolBFSTM and inert gas (e.g. nitrogen) production options are available. During design all utilities and support systems were located outside the cleanroom and separated from production with a SST wall panel. This allows for maintenance access without intervention into the cleanroom.

Holopack®´s Pharma Suite Concept
The Pharma Suite concept enables cost saving in contract manufacturing with bottelpack® aseptic packaging systems. By installing a bottelpack® aseptic system in one of Holopack®´s dedicated class C Pharma Suites, there is no investments in buildings, environment and infrastructure needed, no maintenance costs and no responsibility for GMP manufacturing as qualified Holopack teams take care of the complete manufacturing at highest quality. With the Pharma Suite concept, manufacturers are able to adjust manufacturing capacities according to market requirements.

“Freund-Vector Corporation is pleased to exhibit our unique Granurex® GXR technology at INTERPHEX,” said Steve Kray, Marketing Manager, Freund-Vector. “The GXR conical rotor processor precisely and consistently performs coating, granulating and powder layering processes. With its exclusive drying air duct design, the GXR is a true one-pot system which dries the material after processing. Stop by and see it at our booth 3253.”

The GXR rotor technology has multiple processing capabilities which include spherical granulating, powder coating and solution/suspension coating of fine particles. Granules produced by the GXR are dense and spherical in shape. A patented feature of the GXR is its ability to dry product within the same processing chamber. This unique drying method, combined with 12 bar construction, provides a true one-pot system, ideal for manufacturing highly potent and expensive pharmaceutical compounds. Additionally, the patented conical rotor plate increases batch capacities when compared to traditional rotor processors. The precision machined gap contains the product within the processing area and the peripheral spray guns are embedded into the product, which provides accurate coating with minimal spraying defects. Using micronized acetaminophen as the base material, the GXR produced both a 100 µm granulation and a 200 µm spherical bead.
