- Very accurate capping torque prevents leaking containers
- Highly accurate filling of volumes from less than 0.2 m
- Reduced costs for process validation
The FMB210 range of fully automatic filling and capping machines is capable of working with many different liquids and fill volumes, and a range of containers.
Here we detail filling and screw capping of micro tubes with volumes from less than 0.2ml. A peristaltic filler ensures accurate filling, and prevents costly overfills, even on very small fill volumes.
As with all Flexicon filling systems, the liquid only contacts a single-use fluid path, so changeover from one liquid to another can be done quickly, without the risk of cross-contamination.
Capping torque is precisely controlled and monitored. This prevents leaking containers due to fluctuating air pressure in storage or transit.
Production costs are minimised, with a single operator managing up to 2200 micro tubes per hour - feeding the machine with empty micro tubes and caps, and removing the final product from the outfeed.
A production run can be set-up in less than 20 minutes, with changeover completed without assistance from outside the cleanroom area.
The total capacity of the FMB210 per working day is unique for this size of filling and capping solution.
Flexicon offers IQ/OQ for the equipment and provides a free validation pack for the fluid path, reducing the time and resources needed at validation.
