Suncombe – the Cleaning In Place and hygienic process engineers – have announced the release of the IsolatorCIP, to provide a solution for automated Cleaning In Place and Washing In Place of Isolators and Gloveboxes.
Incorporating new methodologies, the IsolatorCIP was developed following industry demands, to provide a standard and customisable system, allowing reliable, repeatable and validatable CIP and WIP of Isolators and Gloveboxes.
Designed for aqueous, detergent and/or solvent cleaning, the IsolatorCIP was developed to incorporate “Lean Manufacturing Principles” ensuring that waste is minimised and efficiency is maximised.
Utilising variable duty configurations, the IsolatorCIP can also be used to effectively clean processing equipment enclosed in the isolator or fitted onto the in-feed or discharge. Incorporating replaceable modules, the base unit is a fully hygienic version, with optional modules for sterile use including sanitising and sterilising configurations.
Steve Overton, technical director at Suncombe commented: “The release of the IsolatorCIP is due to a great deal of interest from different market sectors. Our clients were looking for a solution for this specialist cleaning area that could be tailored to suit different applications against different industry standards. We have supplied base IsolatorCIP for applications in the food industry and WIP applications in BioPharma, and used variants for sterilising, ASME BPE, GAMP and ATEX requirements.”
Manufactured from 316L certified stainless steels and incorporating high quality components, the machines are fabricated by qualified technicians to certified procedures. Incorporating a user-friendly colour touch screen, they provide the optimum control of the entire process using an easily configured recipe structure and provide confirmation at the successful completion of cycle. Remote control facilities can be incorporated for interfacing to the Isolator control systems.
Complementing our extensive range of CIPs, Washers, Process and BioWaste Decontamination Systems, the new IsolatorCIP is manufactured in the United Kingdom and is available worldwide through sales networks.
