NUPAC Industries has released the PSL ChargePoint, a flexible and secure system for transferring powders throughout the full range of drug manufacturing processes. The 250mm diameter valve includes two enhanced systems enabling OELs to be reduced to under 1μg/m3.
The PSL ChargePoint Vortex system involves simultaneous extraction and pulsed jet tangential entry of air or gas into a small opening between the active and passive discs inside a split valve. Before unlocking is completed, extracted air is passed through a safe charge HEPA filter.
The system provides secure containment via a direct metal to metal seal without O rings. A small number of components aids rapid decontamination.
The system provides a flexible and secure transfer of potent powders throughout the full range of drug manufacturing processes.
