We have developed a unique and efficient system that makes handling of double bags easier.
Typically, sterile components such as stoppers are double bagged and moving them to sterile areas for processing presents ergonomic and hygienic challenges.
A short description of our system:
Our system can handle double bagged components by using a cradle that holds the bag, a mobile lifter in the first room that transports the cradle via a pass-through. A second lifter in the sterile filling room pulls the inner bag free from the cradle and transports the bag within the sterile filling room. These functions are completed with minimal human handling of the component bag. Variations of this design are available to fit specific parameters.
The video shows the handling of the double bag.
The pictures shows some of the steps when handling the double bag.
The cradle holds the bag and can be tilted to allow a full wipe down cleaning. After the bag has been cleaned properly, the cradle is placed in the pass-through to the sterile filling room.
A mobile lifter in the sterile room is pulling the bag out of the pass-through. This operation can be made without any operators touching the bag.
In the sterile filling room, the bag hangs on a separate holder with swivel hooks allowing you to rotate the bag if needed.
