Innovation and product safety of the highest standard Vakulab® HL

The hygienic design and customer-specific special features of the Vakulab® HL handle the demanding tasks involved in the production of sterile materials, such as solutions or filled syringes, as well as those encountered in production-related areas where the sterilization of fermenters, machine parts, clean room garments, filters, etc. calls for individual solutions.

Vakulab HL

Our response to the pharmaceutical industry’s strict demands for design and process reliability.

Suitable for sterilizing solid and porous materials using the pre-vacuum process or pulsed vacuum process following by drying. Liquids in open or loosely sealed containers using the pre-vacuum process.

Liquids in tightly sealed containers made from glass or heat-resistant material using the steam/air mixture method (SAMM) (only with the steam/air mixture process option). Infectious materials (only with the Exhaust air filter feature). The sterilizer complies with the Pressure Equipment Directive (PED) 2014/68/EU and the Machinery Directive 2006/42/EC. CE marking according to PED 2014/68/EU. The standards applied are: DIN 58950, AD 2000 Design of Pressure Vessels and DIN EN 62304 Medical device software.
