The Reliance 480PG Pharmaceutical Grade Washer is an advanced high-performance system This new washer is designed to help STERIS pharmaceutical customers better address their specific automated washing needs.
The pharmaceutical manufacturing industry is under pressure more than ever before to improve their processes and cost effectiveness. They require equipment that can help shorten validation time, comply with standards and guidelines, and reduce the total cost of ownership.
“Our new STERIS washing solution offers several innovative features that are designed to provide an even higher level of assurance of consistent cleaning results,” comments Olivier Van Houtte, associate product manager for STERIS Life Sciences. “For example, the total organic carbon (TOC) monitoring system verifies the presence of residual detergent or soil in the final rinse water, which provides a higher level of assurance that the load items have been properly cleaned and rinsed. In addition, the rotation of the chamber’s spray arms can be monitored to ensure that the spray coverage of all the items in the load is constant and complete.”
The new Reliance 480PG system complies with the ASME BPE 2012 (Bio Processing Equipment) standard, which relates to the requirements applicable to system design for bioprocessing, pharmaceutical and personal care product industries. The “Electronic Data Security” Options allow users to configure a comprehensive, yet cost effective system to manage vital electronic data and comply with FDA 21 CFR Part 11 and European Annex 11 requirements.
The 480PG washer also has one of the smallest footprints in its chamber size category, minimizing the use of valuable floor space.
The Reliance 480PG Pharmaceutical Grade Washer also enables significant process flexibility. An extensive line of modular loading accessories is easy to configure with the system, and the washer can be built with either a Siemens or Allen-Bradley programmable logic controller.
