Split butterfly valves: Containment and monitoring for API transfer

7 June, 2019 | ChargePoint Technology

Michael Avraam, Head of Engineering Solutions, writes about systems that are critical to preventing HPAPIs harming staff and the bottom line

Closed transfer solutions are continuing to replace traditional open transfer techniques in the production of solid dose drugs, with solutions such as split butterfly valves (SBVs) seeing increased uptake due to the reduced risk of cross contamination and airborne dust particulate. Many manufacturers are now considering single use technology as an alternative to traditional containment solutions due to the reduction in manual handling contamination and washing and cleaning validation.

In this article with Cleanroom Technology, our head of solutions engineering, Michael Avraam, discusses the ways single use technologies can allow manufacturers to address the complex challenges associated with ensuring containment integrity in the manufacture of solid dose drugs.
