Over more than three decades, Dec Group has brought innovation to the pharmaceutical process industry by introducing active versus gravity charging and process linking with its Powder Transfer System (PTS), a unique solution that uses both pressure and vacuum to ensure all forms of dry powders and granules flow efficiently and safely between processes and containers.
Dec has now engineered a Sterilize In Place (SIP) aseptic design version of its PTS with easy-clean features supporting sterile applications and processes.
The SIP version offers all PTS advantages in ensuring effective and reliable transfer and dispensing of dry and wet powders and granules.
These include precise dispensing into reactors and other processes, even under pressure, as well as out of or into bags or drums, maintaining high containment throughout the process.
In addition, this latest version of PTS incorporates a set of features designed to support high sterility applications, including:
- Sterilizable valves (diaphragm, butterfly valves)
- Greatly improved hygiene with minimal dead space and easy clean surfaces with no grooves or indentations
- Temperature and pressure sensors (sterilization 120 °C)
- Control via touch-screen HMI
The system comes with a Clean in Place (CIP) cover to allow one step washdown.
