The Model HWS is a hybrid pharmaceutical quality
autoclave with stopper
washer sterilizer capability. The Direct Impact Cleaning
drum with CIP/SIP
assembly is inserted into the center of the autoclave for use as a
stopper processor. The insert can be removed for use as a standard
pharmaceutical autoclave (as shown below).
The pressure chambers and pressure vessels are
Switzerland. The Swiss factory has robotic welding and x-ray
as well as orbital clamp welding machines for the pipe work.
Swiss factory is ISO 9001 certified.
