Pharmaceutical cleaning machines

RAN-30x0_external-cleaning machine

Before vials, ampoules, syringes, and cartridges can be safely filled and closed, they need to undergo a crucial process step. Thorough external cleaning is necessary to remove product residues and other contaminants from the containers’ outer sides. As such, cleaning prevents potentially harmful substances from compromising operator and patient safety. Syntegon’s portfolio of compact pharmaceutical cleaning systems for the low, medium and high output ranges support manufacturers in reaching this goal. The hygienic and ergonomically designed solutions allow to externally clean a wide variety of containers, with special emphasis on fast and easy operations.

Key benefits

Hygiene first
Hose-free areas, high-quality surfaces and good accessibility ensure residue-free cleaning
Ergonomic design
Easily adjustable cleaning stations and fast format changes increase operational flexibility
Versatile systems with high outputs
Our cleaning machines process different container types at outputs of up to 42,000 containers per hour

Pharmaceutical cleaning machines & features

RAN-30x0_external-cleaning machine

RAN 30x0 external cleaning machine

If you are looking for a highly flexible pharmaceutical cleaning system, you will find the RAN 30x0 worth considering: it cleans vials, ampoules and cartridges with efficient high-pressure cleaning nozzles. The specially developed transport gripper makes sure that virtually the entire container surface is cleaned. Caps are protected throughout the entire process, maintaining the integrity of the delicate products inside the containers.

Benefits:

  • Flexible cleaning stations enable usage of three different agents
  • Best cleaning and drying system with high-pressure nozzles
  • Hygienic design: low contamination levels and easy cleaning

RRN 20x3 cleaning machine for low and medium output

This all-purpose pharmaceutical cleaning solution for low and medium output has what it takes to achieve high-quality results: its ergonomic design, a characteristic of all Syntegon cleaning machines, makes sure manufacturers can tackle their cleaning operations both flexibly and safely. Dedicated pipes connect each cleaning station to the cleaning media, leading to a hose-free washing area with reduced particle generation.

Benefits:

  • Space-saving layout
  • Flexible capacity ranges
  • Configurable format recipes (container size, washing times)

RRN 3xx5 cleaning machine for high output rates

When it comes to high output rates, the RRN 3xx5 is the perfect solution to increase pharmaceutical safety. It uses servo drives to control the internal spraying needle motion. This contributes to efficient operations, as it allows to process different container sizes without spraying needle changes. External cleaning stations that are mounted above the transport system further boost flexibility. Operators can easily adjust their height, angle, and lateral position, thereby customizing their cleaning operations to meet product-specific requirements.

Benefits:

  • Expandable to 7 interior cleaning stations
  • Defined and reproducible cycle times
  • Ergonomic machine operation and maintenance

RRU 20x3 cleaning machine for low and medium output

Low and medium output cleaning with a twist is the best way to describe the RRU 20x3. Before containers enter the cleaning area, they are pre-treated in an ultrasonic bath. This process step adds to the high cleaning quality. Dedicated conveyor and elevator technology gently lifts the containers form the bath for further processing.

Benefits:

  • Gentle container singularization by scroll conveyor
  • Reduced documentation requirements with short internal piping systems
  • Optional pneumatical lifting mechanism for main access hood

RRU 3xx5 cleaning machine for ultrasonic baths

Ultrasonic baths at high output characterize the RRU 3xx5, which relies on the same cleaning technology as the RRU 20x3 for low and medium ranges. Besides gentle conveyor and transport systems, it features the proven hose-less cleaning areas and servo-driven needle stations common to the entire RR portfolio. The all-purpose system enhances cleaning flexibility, further increases pharmaceutical safety, simplifies maintenance and eases cleaning efforts.

Benefits:

  • High-quality surfaces (Ra < 0,6 μm) and good accessibility
  • Minimal corrosion risk thanks to high-quality inner tubing
  • Excellent price/performance ratio
