Lagarde recently installed a Steam and Air autoclave (1400mm diameter with 8 baskets) to sterilize IV solutions in pouches for a client in South America. Our customer decided to trial the Steam and Air process instead of a “raining water” retort and quickly confirmed the benefits to their business.
In the words of the Production Manager at the site:
“The temperature distribution is perfect. This is the best process I have ever seen”.
Changing process technology has been a decisive improvement for this client, with the results exceeding their initial expectations. Since the first installation, the client has decided to buy another retort for the same facility and one for a separate site in the USA. Both of these new installations will be delivered in the first quarter of 2017.
