Ventipro

GMP Steam-Air Mixture Terminal Sterilizers

Ventipro steam-air mixture sterilizers provide gentle and efficient terminal sterilization of pressure or heat sensitive pharmaceutical products and materials, such as syringes, plastic bags, and sealed glass or plastic containers. At the end of the sterilization cycle, the product leaves the chamber cool, dry, and ready for labeling.

High Performance Fans

High performance fans intensify the streaming of the steam-air mixture through the chamber and around the load. The fan wheel and all components mounted inside the chamber are constructed of 316L stainless steel. The motor is installed outside the chamber and connected to the fan wheel with a unique sealing system that simplifies inspections and maintenance.

Key Features and Benefits

Product & Package Integrity

Counterpressure air is maintained throughout the process to protect the integrity and shape of products and packaging.

Rapid Heating & Cooling

Ventilation and heat exchanger systems allow for fast heating and cooling times and enables drying of the load after the sterilization phase is complete.

Simple Maintenance

Unique sealing of the fan shaft allows for greater ease in inspection and maintenance.

Sanitary Stainless

The chamber, chamber door, sanitary piping and fittings are all constructed of 100% 316L stainless steel.

Non-Proprietary

Fully constructed with high-grade non-proprietary components for improved reliability, serviceability and value.

Compliance

Fully engineered and built in compliance with US FDA current Good Manufacturing Practice (cGMP), Good Automated Manufacturing Practice (GAMP), and US FDA CFR 21 Part 11.

PLC Controls

Industrial-grade Allen-Bradley or Siemens PLC-based control systems deliver reliable performance and repeatable operation.

Energy Efficient

The chamber and all piping systems are fully insulated to help maintain temperatures and reduce utility consumption.

Ventipro Terminal Sterilization Cycles

Ventipro sterilizers are programmed with a steam-air mixture terminal sterilization cycle with configurable parameters for each cycle phase. The programmed cycle recipe is stored in the sterilizer’s control system memory and is recalled and started with the touch of a button on the operator interface. All recipes are also protected from unauthorized changes via a multi-level authentication system.

Steam-Air Mixture Cycle

Pure steam is pumped into the chamber while being injected with compressed air at a preset differential over-pressure. The steam and air are circulated and mixed by internal fans to ensure rapid heating to the user-configured exposure temperature, between 110°C and 135°C. The air over-pressure and saturated steam pressure are each independently controlled; however, both correspond to the temperature and pressure inside the load.

Once reached, the exposure temperature is maintained for a duration specified by the controller or a manually entered time period. After the exposure countdown completes, the pure steam is stopped and the fans begin blowing cool air across the load.

During the cooling step, a preset support pressure is maintained in the chamber to prevent damaging the product containers. The load is cooled to a safe temperature and the pressure in the chamber is vented to atmosphere before the door can be opened.

Sterilizer Loading Equipment

BMT USA manufactures stainless steel loading equipment in standard or custom designs to accommodate any type of load. Our smaller chamber sizes can be equipped with wire or perforated shelves or loading racks, while large chambers can be equipped with loading carts and transfer trolleys. Large pit-mounted chamber include options for tracks and rub rails that can be designed to work with almost any type of wheel configuration on existing equipment. Carts with drop down wheels are also available for rooms with limited space.

Configured to your exact requirements

BMT USA sterilizers can be fully configured to match almost any application, space, and layout requirements. Custom options for overall sterilizer size, service area access, and chamber capacity allow for perfect placement in your facility, while maintaining optimal loads — even in locations with space constraints. Additional options for single-door or pass-through models, floor or pit mounting, integrated or standalone steam generator, and custom sterilization cycle recipes further enhance the functionality and versatility of each unit.

Examples of Ventipro configuration options:

  • Custom chamber size & capacity.
  • Single-door or pass-through models. 
  • Floor or pit mounting.
  • Right or left service area access.
  • Integrated or remotely located controls cabinet. 
  • Integrated or standalone steam generator (electric or plant steam heated). 
  • Custom sterilization cycle recipes.
  • Loading equipment: shelves, trays, and trolleys.
