Bio-Pharm: UltraFlow®

Hero-Img-F&B-UF45

Portable CIP Systems with a Small Footprint and High-Impact Clean

As many pharmaceutical and biotechnology industry manufacturers turn to more flexible facilities with limited floor space, limited water and drain utilities, and no permanent supply and return lines, a flexible Clean-In-Place (CIP) solution is needed.

The Sani-Matic UltraFlow is a self-contained, compact and portable system programmed to accommodate a variety of recirculated CIP applications. It returns solutions with entrained air to accommodate vessels with low and restricted outlets.

The UltraFlow is available in two models, the UltraFlow 45 and 110. Both models have a small footprint and maintain a wide operating range:

  • The UltraFlow 45 cleans tank diameters up to 4.5 feet and process lines with diameters up to 2” using a CIP flow rate of 2-45 gpm at 50 psi. Its dimensions are 68”L x 24”W x 74”H (height may vary depending on options).
  • The UltraFlow 110 cleans tank diameters up to 10’ and process line diameters up to 3” using a flow rate of 5-110 gpm at 60 psi. Its dimensions are 74″L x 33″W x 80”H (height may vary depending on options).

The system’s high-turbulence flow self-cleans the unit as it progresses through the cycle, and removes solution buildup in the surge tank, saving time, water and chemicals.

The UltraFlow’s many unique features make it flexible, capable of providing a repeatable, documentable clean, and meet cGMP and ASME BPE standards.
