Bosch Packaging Technology`s single-use filling system PreVAS has been nominated for a German Packaging Award in the “Packaging Machines (technology)” category, which recognizes outstanding technical solutions for packaging manufacturing. To be nominated, a company must have developed a certain machine or new technology that improves the quality, cost-effectiveness and efficiency of the packaging process.
PreVAS stands for pre-validated, pre-assembled and pre-sterilized single-use filling systems for liquid pharmaceuticals, which Bosch Packaging Technology has developed in cooperation with Sartorius Stedim Biotech (SSB). Established already in 2012, with Interpack 2014 it was time to offer customers additional solutions for their existing line concepts and to consequently extend the Bosch portfolio. With the PreVAS pump trolley, customers now receive a mobile filling station, which can be flexibly combined with existing filling lines. In this version, the product bag is situated outside of the isolator, while the filling tubes are compactly and safely guided through the isolator wall via the newly developed multi-tubing port, before being connected to the filling station.
“The existing system has been successfully introduced to the market. As with every successful system, the development of PreVAS is never fully completed. We constantly work on developing new approaches for specific customer requirements. Customers can now quickly and economically upgrade their existing lines to filling operations with PreVAS,” Klaus Ullherr, product manager at Bosch Packaging Technology said.
The German Packaging Awards, organized by the German Packaging Institute (dvi), have been held annually since 1963. Awards will be handed out in five categories at a ceremony being held on November 11 at the trade fair “BrauBeviale” in Nuremberg, Germany. The winners in each category will be eligible to take part in the World Star Packaging Award competition organized by the World Packaging Organization (WPO).
