At Huber, we help our customers overcome their challenges through our knowledge and experience in stopper processing





The ideal combination of a washer drier for washing of rubber stoppers 
and rubber articles of the pharmaceutical and technical elastomer industry. 
Treatment of plastic caps, screw caps, and aluminum caps.

The next series of washers are the double door pass through designs. 
They have the same features as the smaller series, however, 
unloading per batch from 100 to 280 liters per batch into a cleanroom.


DS 100 D

DS 200 D

DS 280 D

Loading Volume (Liters) 100 200 280



2480 2600 2940


1130 1260 1290


2200 2350 2350

By mounting the DS D machines into a partition wall, the loading or 
unclean side and the unloading or clean side area are strictly separated. 
The machine itself with all accessible sets, control and operating 
elements is on the non-clean side. 

The base machine comes with PLC by Allen Bradley® - Model SLC 5/04 
with PanelView 550 and printer communication and compatibility with Data
Highway Plus for easier validation and integration into your LAN or other 
Computer Integrated Manufacturing (CIM) system. 

Most effective cleaning of highly contaminated articles  as well as
      articles with deep holes.

Simple loading and ergonomic unloading under laminar flow.

There are no mechanically moving parts during the process, and 
      no metal abrasion, only highly cleaning turbulence of DIRECT 
      IMPACT CLEANING, washing each stopper individually.

The only mechanical seal meeting the current FDA requirements.

Precise siliconization by using silicone oil or silicone emulsion.

Optimal temperatures during each process step.

Effective drying under sterile HEPA filtered air with immediate
      removal of water drops from deep holes through occasionally
      intermittent shifting of stopper (patented) providing uniform low
      residual moisture.

Anti-pyrogen piping of "no weld techniques' and valves.

Anti-pyrogen walls of inner drum, mirror finish.

Electronic or self-programmable control with documentation.

Machine design complying with GMP, WHO and FDA standards, 
     as well as YOUR requirements.

Great economy with lowest water consumption per
      batch and only nominal compressed air consumption.

bulletCIP high-pressure machine self cleaning system (Patent)
guarantees releasing and immediate flushing of pyrogens.
bulletCIP system (Patent) guarantees total cleaning of the inner
drum including inner walls of outer cylinder and because of that, 
reproducible cleaning values.
bulletCIP system (Patent) guarantees processing of siliconized and 
non-siliconized stoppers without carry over.


Washing/Detergent Dosing

After the water supply has reached the set level, detergent is added by the dosing unit. When the inner drum starts rotating, simultaneously the heating process starts.

CIP Clean In Place

When the washing water is drained off, the CIP Machine-self cleaning starts. The outer cylinder and inner drum are cleaned by rotating high pressure jets in order to avoid re deposits of flushed particles and silicone.


Direct Impact Cleaning

As the drum rotates, the the rubber articles are lifted and glide through the water curtain to the next carrier. Pyrogens and 
particles are thoroughly rinsed off. 


After refilling the machine with hot water, the articles are rinsed. If necessary, the articles can now be siliconized. This is done 
by adding the required quantity of silicone by means of the dosing unit. Either silicone oil or silicone emulsion can be used.




The air required for the drying procedure is brought into the machine by the blower through a pre-filter and sterile filter. Drying is intensified by centrifuging (patented), thus abrasion is avoided unlike other systems.

Optional - Unloading and Filling device UFD
