New clean in place sifter ensures unrivalled hygiene standards for pharmaceutical manufacturers
An entirely new clean-in-place screening machine, designed for vital quality control and particle-sizing operations in the production of pharmaceuticals, has been introduced by Russell Finex. Unlike conventional sieves, the new high-performance Russell machine is totally enclosed, making it suitable for cleaning and steaming in place - up to pressure of 105 Psi. This allows manufacturers significant costs and operational benefits by allowing equipment to be sterilized in place.
This eliminates the need to dis-assemble and remove equipment from the production line and move it to separate, isolated area for cleaning, a time-consuming and hazardous process which requires operatives to wear air suits for protection. As a result, machine downtime is reduced to a minimum, producing considerable savings in labor and production costs. Safety and working conditions are also improved by ensuring that operatives do not suffer any harmful effects by contact with toxic drugs.
