It is not normally viable to replace existing machines with new high containment versions, and sometimes a quicker solution is required if a new production demand needs to be considered. We have resolved these needs over many years and are able to efficiently implement a retrofit system, which is bespoke designed to suit a specific model.
Our latest retrofit solution comprises a Bosch capsule filling machine which was completed for a US drug manufacturer.
The design includes the gloves being held in special gloveport retainers with integral safety interlocked guards. Our client required less than 1ųg /m³ Operator Exposure Level (OEL) and asked us to retrofit containment onto their existing capsule filling machine.
We removed the existing doors and retrofitted new swing-out doors with safety interlocks and paid close attention to the operational and maintenance access of the machine.
