Atomization of H2O2 in isolators – highly reduced consumption during bio-decontamination (3)

DECOpulse: Efficient and gentle, with greater production safety

Metall+Plastic proves again that it is important to question technology even for established bio-decontamination processes. With the DECOpulse, Metall+Plastic presents a new, innovative system to introduce H2O2 into isolators at the Achema show with the advantage of a decontamination cycle that is 50 percent shorter.

Substantial increase of machine availability for pharmaceutical machinery with reduced H2O2 consumption (4)

DECOjet®: Faster and more robust decontamination 

The DECOjet® technology of Metall+Plastic combines direct injection nozzles in the manipulation unit with the H2O2 gassing between the CG membrane and HEPA filter. Based on CFC simulations, H2O2 will be introduced at places that have low H2O2 concentration. The result is a defined and quick distribution of H2O2 while, at the same time, using a reduced amount of H2O2. Metall+Plastic filed a patent for this technology, that decreases the injection time thus resulting in a reduction of up to 50 percent of the decontamination time for the entire decontamination cycle…
