The Impacts of Spallation and Repeatable Fill Accuracy in Liquid Filling Applications

The Impacts of Spallation and Repeatable Fill Accuracy in Liquid Filling Applications As the biotech, pharmaceutical, and specialty chemical industries continue to grow, so too does the need for innovative state-of-the-art processes and production technologies. These data-driven fields continuously demand equipment that can produce accurate, repeatable, and reliable results. Intellitech’s technical experts understand the requirements of these critical industries. Through extensive research and development, we have developed custom liquid filling machines that meet the ever-changing needs of these industries. The i-FILL® is specially engineered to deliver precise volumetric accuracy and repeatability capable of meeting the standards of various sectors. Achieve Superior Repeatable Fill Accuracy with Best-In-Class Hybrid Technology Hand filling processes have long been an area of concern, since human error can compromise the accuracy of fill volumes. Overfilling, underfilling, and product loss due to spillage are just some of the issues associated with manual filling operations. Intellitech’s i-FILL® pump technology is guided by a digitally controlled servo motor that ensures precise volumes of fluid are dispensed and accurately repeated between batches. The unit can also be easily programmed using the touchscreen interface to configure different dispensary profiles with customizable filling volumes and speeds to suit various fluid characteristics. To further enhance accuracy, the fluid path is outfitted with one-way check valves that start and stop fluid flows to eliminate dripping, prevent overfilling and spillage. Avoid Tubing Spallation and Particle Shedding In conventional peristaltic pump filling machines, tubing is wrapped around a circular pump casing. This pump casing is fitted with a rotor, consisting of a system of rollers, which alternately compress the tube as it rotates. The alternating compression and relaxation of the tubing forces fluids in the appropriate direction. Peristaltic pump fillers, though

Intellitech’s Liquid Filling Machine Brings Scalability to Bioprocessing Company Downstream Fill/Finish Process

Intellitech’s Liquid Filling Machine Brings Scalability to Bioprocessing Company Downstream Fill/Finish Process Intellitech recently had the opportunity to improve the fill/finish process for a life-science  bioprocessing company in the Midwest from a manual operation to state-of-the-art automation for a fully automated bottle feed, uncap, fill, cap and label application process. The upgrade reduced set up and cycle time for the fill/finish process while improving the accuracy and repeatability of the operation.  With the new liquid filling equipment in place, the company increased the capacity of their fill/finish process to support business growth.   The Client’s Predicament: Intellitech was approached by a bioprocessing company interested in exploring the capabilities of automated liquid filling machines. The company specializes in the production of cell culture supplements that are frequently used in the pharmaceutical and diagnostic sectors.  More specifically, they handle protein fractions that are used as cell culture media and diagnostic controls in critical pharmaceutical applications. At the time, the life-science company had an extremely efficient hand-filling process performed by two employees; one unwrapping cartons of bottles and loosening the caps, while the other employee performed the uncap, fill, and cap placement operations. The employee, who was very adept at their job, could uncap, fill and place a cap on an average of 600 bottles an hour. Although the manual filling process was efficient, the company knew that filling by hand was not sustainable, and there were underlying productivity issues that would need to be addressed to support their business growth: If the hand-filling operator was unavailable, filling operations would be in jeopardy The complete cap tightening process was outside the filling suite – lengthening the cycle time The hand-filling process was not infinitely scalable – automation would
