North Brunswick, NJ (PRWEB) May 10, 2010
Distek, Inc., an industry leader in dissolution testing products and validation services is pleased to announce the approved patent for their dissolution vessel washing system, VIP 4400 (US 7,658,198 B2). The VIP 4400 offers the now patented “Cyclone” wash nozzle which provides a full 360° of wash.
Typically dissolution vessels are removed from their assigned position on the dissolution unit and then transported to another station for cleaning. Vessel cleaning involves pouring out the contents, washing and drying the vessels. Upon completion of cleaning, the vessel should be returned to the assigned location where the centering of the vessel and height of the stirring element must be verified. This verification process needs to be repeated each time a vessel is reinstalled to maintain consistent and accurate control over critical parameters.
“Depending on the number of vessels, the cleaning and verification process can be tedious, time-consuming and subject to human error,” says Jeff Seely, Global Sales and Marketing Manager, Distek, Inc. “Herein lies the true value of the VIP 4400 as it permits in-situ cleaning of the dissolution vessels.”
Customers employing the Distek VIP 4400 will eliminate the mundane task of removing, draining, and cleaning dissolution vessels. The use of the VIP 4400 will save time, reduce cost, and increase the output of the dissolution laboratory by performing these functions, in-situ.
