Syringe/Vial Vacuum Stopper Inserter
Available from Rormac Packaging Systems
The RPS206 Vacuum Stoppering Unit is typically used to insert and seat stoppers — or plunger rods — in unit dose syringes. But, the system is not limited to this application. Other applications include evacuation glass tubes sealed with stoppers on both ends. The Vacuum Stoppering Unit consists of stainless steel vacuum chamber with an air-driven transfer punch plate assembly and a control box. The latter automatically controls the process in the chamber. During operation the loaded syringe rack is put in the chamber; the transfer punch plate is moved by a short stroke sufficient to seal the stopper to the syringe; a vacuum is reached; and then released. The venting of the chamber restores atmospheric pressure creating a pressure differential between the top and bottom of the stopper — thus providing a final seating of the stopper in the syringe. The chamber is constructed of materials that are fully autoclavable — allowing the chamber as a unit to be sterilized easily. A wide selection of transfer punch plate assemblies, as well as custom assemblies, makes this system versatile and adaptable to numerous applications. The RPS 206 continues to be the original & legitimate Vacuum Assembly system in the market place today.
