Single-Use Process Systems Include Manufacturing and Part Assembly

AdvantaPure provides Single-Use Process Systems to the pharmaceutical industry and other markets that can benefit from single-use technology. Consisting of silicone tubing, molded silicone components, and other processing-related parts, the systems offer cost reductions and increases in productivity.

AdvantaPure has long been manufacturing platinum-cured silicone tubing, hose, and molded silicone components such as Tri-Clamp style fittings, container seals, and bottle stoppers. These items, along with other process components — bottles, bags, and valves, for example — may be incorporated into a single use system for a finished, ready-to-use part.

The advantages of Single-Use Process Systems over traditional stainless steel systems include:

  • Reduced risk of product cross-contamination
  • Decreased production downtimes for cleaning activities
  • Simplified cleaning validation procedures
  • Flexibility for process system changes
  • Reduced material and labor costs
  • Single-source, cleanroom manufacture and assembly

Another benefit of AdvantaPure’s systems is the availability of GammaTag gamma-irradiatable RFID tags. GammaTags may be attachment directly to process systems and components for reliable, electronic identification from manufacture through disposal. Gamma-irradiation services of complete process systems are available as well.
