TekniPlex Healthcare will be presenting its recently incorporated next-generation filling and sealing machine for plastic containers at CPHI Barcelona, October 24-26. At Booth 2G19, the company will highlight the Pentafill® A25 filling & sealing machine, which offers improved sterility and a smaller footprint.
In addition to the enhanced sterility afforded by the machine’s fully automatic mechanisms, the Pentafill® A25 does not require preheating with hot air, mitigating any risk of compromising the filled product. The unit also has no central machine support, allowing for unobstructed laminar flow. Capable of producing up to 25 five-vial strips (125 vials total) per min, the versatile unit is suitable for filling a range of viscosities for applications serving the pharmaceutical, diagnostics, nutraceuticals, and animal health markets.
“As we expand our global presence in the pharmaceutical packaging market, we’re listening to our customers’ needs and innovating accordingly,” says Bryan Wesselmann, VP of sales and marketing for TekniPlex Healthcare. “Our customers expressed a need for improved sterility and the minimization of potential product contamination while filling, and the Pentafill® design team delivered.”
Also at CPHI, TekniPlex Healthcare will showcase the world’s first fully transparent recyclable mid-barrier blister package. Recyclable in geographies where the #5 (polypropylene) recycling stream is available, the mid-barrier blisters feature a polyolefin blister film paired with a barrier PP lidding film. TekniPlex Healthcare also will exhibit a fully recyclable polyester mono-material blister + lidding combination, suitable for products that do not require barrier protection.
TekniPlex Healthcare also will be highlighting its Flexapharm® SBC series of PVDC (polyvinylidene chloride)-coated PVC structures and an array of Aclar® laminates designed to preserve the efficacy and shelf life of drugs with demanding environmental protection requirements.
