BMT Fluipharm Water Spray Sterilizers

BMT Fluipharm Hot Water Spray Sterilizers provide fast, safe and effective terminal sterilization of liquids in sealed or heat sensitive containers.  Super-heated water is sprayed on the load which enables fast heating and cooling due to the heat transfer properties of water.  Air over-pressure air is injected into the chamber to compensate for the rising temperature and pressure that builds inside liquid containers when heated. 

FEATURES

  • Extremely fast heating and cooling enables gentle sterilization of heat-sensitive loads
  • Ideal for sterilization of liquids in containers such as PVC bags, plastic bottles, syringes, blister packs, and glass
  • No pure steam required as water is heated indirectly by plant steam through external heat exchangers
  • Allen Bradley or Siemens PLC control systems
  • Piping sloped to drain with no dead legs
  • Sanitary valves and components
  • Extensive Validation documentation
  • Chamber doors secured on four sides
  • Solid stainless steel door—no welding
  • Lubricant-free door gaskets

Process
The process begins with filling the chamber to a predetermined level with purified water.  The water is circulated by the pump through an external heat exchanger that is heated by plant steam.  The water is then sprayed onto the product as the temperature rises.  Due to the efficient heat transfer, the product is heated rapidly.  Compressed air at an over-pressure is injected into the chamber to compensate for the rising temperature and pressure that builds inside liquid containers when heated.  At the end of the exposure step, cooling begins.  The circulating water is cooled by an external heat exchanger that is cooled with cooling or chilled water.  The product is quickly cooled to ambient temperature by continuously spraying the circulating water over the load.  This method of sterilization is the fastest method for sterilization of liquids in sealed containers.

Chambers
BMT Fluipharm sterilizers are equipped with highly polished chambers made entirely of 316L stainless steel for superior durability.  A solid plate door without welding ensures the door will not warp over time.  Precision machined door brackets for retaining the door on four sides ensure smooth door travel and safe, secure doors.  All chamber connections are sanitary clamp type and are slopped to drain.  Lubricant-free door gaskets will last longer and will reduce particle shedding into clean rooms.

Sanitary Piping Systems
All piping and ports in contact with the chamber are constructed of 316L stainless steel and are sloped for drain-ability.  Easily removable sanitary clamp fittings are used for ease in removal of components.  Non-proprietary sanitary valves and components are selected for their reliability and availability to reduce down time.

Control Systems
BMT Sterilizers are equipped with industrial grade, Allen Bradley or Siemens PLC based control systems for superior reliability, repeatability of cycles, and serviceability.  The programming is developed utilizing the latest GAMP (Good Automated Manufacturing Practices) guidelines to ensure reliability, facilitate validation, and provide maximum flexibility for the user.

Validation
Every Fluipharm water spray sterilizer is subject to rigorous pre-validation testing at the factory and shipped with an extensive documentation package in order to minimize the time required for on-site validation.  IQ/OQ protocols as well as on-site execution are available as options.
