IMA HYDRA Linear vial washer

HYDRA was created after many years of research and development focusing on container decontamination for injectable drugs. Designed according to the cGMP guidelines, the machine features the highest quality standards required by the pharmaceutical industry.

IMA HYDRA is a linear washing machine for vials and bottles of all sizes, and is suitable for plastic and oval containers upon request.

Containers for sterile preparation are processed in a different way according to the material they are made of and the product to be filled. Tailored according to the nature of containers, HYDRA performs thousands of customised washing cycles.

  • Special upper guide rail for containers allowing for washing at high pressure without vibration or movement.
  • Complete segregation between process, circuit and mechanical areas to avoid cross contamination.
  • No vial breakages thanks to a system of levers, incorporating spring-loaded telescopic overload, driving machine movements, including raising of the washing needles.

IMA VEGA Rotary Vial Washers

Containers coming in contact with parenteral preparations must be rendered sterile and non-pyrogenic, process resulting particularly successful with the VEGA Series, where the easy configurable washing sequence enhances the efficiency of the cleaning procedure

Being the majority of SVIs aseptically processed (i.e. end containers not sterilized), essential becomes to rigorously adhere to cGMP standards as far as sterility assurance is concerned – FDA and EMA guidelines.

VEGA washing flow follows said directions in terms of structural design, connections, and adaptability of the decontamination process.

  • Low maintenance impact
  • Ultrasonic pre-wash connection with de-packing machines or turntables
  • Completely drainable washing circuit
