Nordson MEDICAL features an advanced series of ports for the single-use bags used to transfer media and drug compounds in the biopharmaceutical industry. Value Pharma™ resin holds credentials that many manufacturers deem fundamental, such as animal derivative free qualification, USP Class VI certification, and the guarantee of heat sealing and conformance with polyethylene bags. The resin then goes even further to provide a strong, 24-hour resistance to alcohol stress cracking. RENOLIT SOLMED Granuflex 4301 resin demonstrates lower leachable levels and high purity.
Their unique design sets these new ports apart from existing solutions. They not only conform with frequently utilized tubing sizes from 1/8" (3.2 mm) to 1" (25.4 mm) and 1-1/2" (38.1 mm) to 3" (76.2 mm) TC style, but they are also designed to ASME and BPE ferrule specifications, allowing them to work with leading industry fittings, filters and other devices.
The most notable of the bag ports' specifications are the parabolic lead and the alignment ribs. These two features, respectively, reduce the amount of time it takes to drain a bag by 24 percent and improve flow dynamics through the port. They promote a uniform flow by guiding the product into a consistent, rotational path while reducing flow separation from the wall.
