ASEPCO’s Aseptic Switch
CIP/SIP Sterile Connections and Transfers
The possibility of contamination lurks as a constant threat during aseptic filling. Today, much greater quality control is possible thanks to advances in barrier technology at the filling machine and clever valve design. The method detailed here shows ASEPCO Valves in a validated “sterile” connection/transfer.
ASEPCO Radial-Diaphragm Valves, when ported, create a “behind-the-seat flowpath” inside the valve’s body. Creating this special flowpath between ASEPCO Valves makes it possible to first connect the two sterile systems, sterilize the space between them, and subsequently carry out a sterile fluid transfer.
