Rubber Stoppers Bungs (electrometric closures for drug containers) are mainly used in stoppering vials and it is necessary to sterilize these as they are in direct contact with the final product. Though the trend of using pre-sterilized bungs from the market is still prevalent, their viability is still a question, owing to the various handling & transportation issues leading to questions on sterility.
Bung Processor cum steam sterilizer enables customers to reap benefits of ‘washing and sterilizing’ from single equipment. The bungs are loaded into a ‘drum’ and later placed into the sterilizer. The entire operation is done via PLC where in the pre-set program determines the wash sequence (Eg. Detergent Wash, WFI Wash & Silicon Treatment) followed by a final sterilization using HPHV cycle. This ensures complete sterility for the bungs. These bungs can later be unloaded in “sterile pouches/ bags” and transferred to the filling room, usually under laminar air flow conditions.
Lodha has designed a unique ‘drum’ that has the capability for auto unloading of the bungs, which eliminates the intermediate ‘handling’ of bungs. Also, with expertise you can look forward to special feature like preservative & Hot Air treatment with HEPA Filters for enhanced results.
