Large steriliser for use in production and in the pharmaceutical industry for the safe and economic sterilisation of solid, porous and liquid goods such as infusion solutions or microbiological nutrient solutions, and system parts in the area close to production (fermenter, filling systems, clean room clothing, filters etc.).

The Vakulab HL meets the most stringent requirements for design and process safety.

Ease of use:

MMM Smart HMI:

  • Clear and self-explanatory menu navigation on the colour touch display.
  • Large touch screen buttons with clear symbols
  • Large TeleClock remaining time display for time-optimised work processes.
  • Quiet two-stage vacuum pump
  • Energy-saving night-time shut-off - can be adjusted individually for every day.
  • Water saving system. The vacuum pump runs in economical circulation mode. Fresh water is only added when necessary.
  • High quality sterilising pressure container made from CrNiMo steel, material no. 1.4404 (AISI 316L) and surrounding ring channels as jacket made from CrNiMoTi steel, material no. 1.4571 (AISI 316 Ti).
  • Sterilising chamber with full-surface heating at top and bottom.
  • SANIcirc: tailored design of the pipes and valves in line with MMM pipe class
  • Pipes laid at a slope
  • Quiet two-stage vacuum pump
  • Automatic sliding doors with safety equipment that prevents it from being opened while the program is running, and prevents the loading and unloading sides from being opened at the same time (lock function) and provides protection against trapping.
  • Depending on the procedure, either vapour or compressed air is applied to the door seal.
  • The pipes are in line with DIN EN 285: steam-conducting lines and valves made from CrNi steel; pipes are colour-coded and heat-insulated. The pipe insulation from K-Flex is free from halogen, PVC, CFC, HCFC and asbestos.
  • Colour touch display with intuitive menus and display of all important batch information as well as messages from the safety inspection system and the service menu for the technician.
  • Support pressure equipment: For feeding compressed air from the in-house network to the sterilising pressure container. Support pressure cushion to prevent solutions from boiling over.
  • 10“ display
  • Siemens controller
  • Early start: Starts independently to heat the steriliser with a first empty cycle so that the steriliser is operational immediately.
  • Barcode reader for identifying the charged goods
  • Steam manager
  • Remote diagnosis, central control centre
  • Connection to A4 printer or network for printing and archiving the batch log
  • Air-tight partition as a barrier between the sterile and non-sterile areas.
  • Waste sterilisation according to RKI
  • Clamp or aseptic screw fittings
  • Sealants and lubricants according to FDA (21 CFR)
  • F0 value controlled process
  • Filter housing and elements that can be sterilised in line
  • Circulation cooling with cooling circuit connection
  • 15“ display
  • Special waste program RKI
  • Sterile filtration of compressed air
  • Equipment package "Closed solutions"
  • Equipment package “Infectious products”
  • Jacket cooling in circulating mode: reduction of softened water by up to 90%
  • Connecting the jacket cooling to the in-house cooling circuit reduces water consumption by up to 95 %

Redundant sensors in the steriliser and the monitoring of important operational parameters provide for the highest possible process safety. The PID control is perfectly adapted to the individual phases of the gradient-controlled process.

The Simatic Multi Panel Touch from Siemens corresponds to FDA CFR 21 Part 11.

  • The contents of the batch documentation are regulated by law. The form can be chosen freely:

    • Print-out of the batch documentation on a DIN A4 printer
    • Data transmission via the network for saving on a connected PC.
    • Operator identification for batch documentation
    • Internal batch data storage of up to 50,000 batches
