ALU SERIES
Capping Machines for Aseptic Environments

Throughout the process, the ALU cappers meticulously check the compliance with the production parameters: in case of injectable products, it is indeed the capping which assures the hermetic seal and therefore the integrity of the drug inside the container.

Capping adjust-ability

Although the vial cap provides the final closure element of a sealed vial, there is a growing demand for capping installations in classified areas, clean rooms or aseptic environments, thus enhancing the importance of relying on machines with very low particle generation to avoid product contamination.

From their design to the performance of the crimping operation, from the traditional aluminium to the most special caps, the ALU cappers have been conceived to adapt to any industry request.

ALU Series Highlights

1.
Acceptable sterile closure types: aluminium, flip-off, bio-set, add-vantage.
2.
Minimized particle generation with crimping process with idle disk.
3.
Electronic control to provide perfect sealing for aseptic products.
4.
Suitable to work under conventional laminar flow or isolator, in sterile rooms or classified environments.
5.
Suitable for complete VHP sterilization.
With the ALU cappers, the crimping is performed by rotating the vial against an idle disk. The advantage offered by this system over traditional sealing methods, is to minimize particle generation on the vial mouth.
