Automated filling operations for final container closures is the operational norm for any sizeable production volume; however the same is not true for upstream operations. While manifold systems can provide an effective solution, the operation of these is typically labor and time intensive. Newer systems which deploy a traditional manifold in conjunction with infrastructure that integrates pneumatic pinch clamps and peristaltic pumps through a singular interface can enhance the function of these systems. Both of these options have their place in operations however for operations requiring large volume fills and/or a large number of smaller volume fills they can be suboptimal. We will discuss an aseptic filling system which offers a step change in terms of speed, operational flexibility, repeatability and automation. The automated filling system accurately fills single-use systems from 500 mL to 1000 L via a unique single-use fill line that integrates a Coriolis flow meter liner.

Objective

  1. Objective 1. Understand the value of manifolded systems, and their disadvantages in aseptic filling applications. 2. Understand the value of newer generations of designs based off of manifolded systems, and their disadvantages in aseptic filling applications. 3. Understand how we can apply what we have learned in downstream processing to upstream processing, in terms of repeatability, accuracy and speed for aseptic filling operations.
