WASHING & STERILIZATION
The technical collaboration between Aboca and Fedegari allowed the development of a special process equipment for washing and sterilization of components used to produce ointments. The system eliminates the use of any detergent while exploiting the natural characteristics of the steam. Developing the most efficient solution was essential to optimize the manufacturing process and to achieve significant savings in energy, process fluids and surfactants both during the process and in wastewater treatment.
The cleaning system applies an original solution developed by Fedegari in the early 1980s for the washing, sterilization and drying of containers intended for the sterile packaging of bulk drugs. The experiences made afterward allowed Fedegari to implement variations of this project to treat different products with the same technology already field-tested.
