High Containment Transfer System
"The PTFE carrier with transfer moulded rubber seal is a transformative solution that has reshaped how we approach sealing challenges in the pharmaceutical industry."
The transfer system utilised a nylon seal within the slide gate. However, the seal would adhere due to accumulated fine powder, resulting in product build-up during slide gate operation.
A PTFE carrier combined with a transfer-moulded rubber seal to substitute the nylon seal was created. We developed a customised FDA EPDM with an additive to reduce friction coefficient in the specific application.
Effective sealing and functioning were achieved through our tailored solution. This successful solution was initially implemented for the customer's 4" product and has subsequently been extended to their 6" and 8" transfer systems.
