The FAU series comprises compact cleaning machines which can be used for intensive and thorough wet cleaning of glass and plastic containers. This series has a broad range of applications extending from vials, bottles and ampoules to similar types of container, including non-stable containers. The containers are conveyed through the working area very gently in a continuous motion. The various cleaning media can be used in any chosen order, and the line system is controlled and configured in such a way that media do not mix.
The ECOwash system by Bausch + Ströbel ensures optimal cleaning of all containers while significantly reducing the consumption of cleaning media. This is achieved by using a combination of special cleaning needles which are developed and/or adapted in comprehensive trials to meet your specific requirements. The ECOwash (Efficient Customized Operation) technology has the following advantages:
- Optimized cleaning in hard-to-reach areas
- Reduction in water consumption: up to 40%
- Reduction in residual moisture content: up to 70%
- Reduction in air consumption: up to 20%
- Reduction in noise when blow-drying containers: up to 50%
- High energy efficiency
This technology meets the applicable GMP requirements and the FDA guideline on electronic data records (21 CFR Part 11). This technology can be retrofitted to existing rinsing machines.
