This separator has been designed for pharmaceutical biotechnology products and designed in accordance with the prevailing GMP requirements. The Westfalia Separator®hycon achieves highest solid concentrations with an aseptic processing concept. In the interest of sterile processing under clean room conditions, the drive unit (drive and motor) and process chamber (bowl and solids discharge) are hermetically separated from each other through the so-called 2-chamber concept by a gaslubricated slide-ring packing. The product is fed into the machine through a closed-line system. A centripetal pump likewise discharges the clarified product. Feed and discharge lines are sealed against the rotating bowl by mechanical seals. In addition, the solids separated in the bowl are discharged fully automatically; manual solids removal is therefore not necessary. Due to the pneumatic control of the discharge mechanism, potential contamination of the product with operating water is avoided.
