From the Leader in Seal Integrity

The Integra uses the same proven three spinning roller sealing head design as the standard PW Westcapper® . Now, a servo driven actuator will bring the sealing head to the vial and utilize a load cell to accurately provide proper sealing pressure. This functionality provides a quality seal despite variations in vial height.

A stoppered vial is a prevalent parenteral drug container closure system. The system however should not be considered integral until the rubber stopper is crimped firmly in place with sufficient compression against the vial, assuring all potential leakage is cut off at the seal interface. It is well understood that seal quality is critically important to maintaining sterility and stability of the drug product.

Seal integrity is achieved by adequately compressing the elastomeric closure against the sealing surface of the vial and maintaining that compression with a crimped aluminum ferrule. The amount of elastomeric compression is determined by the force applied during the crimping process. The Integra Westcapper® controls the force being applied to the elastomeric closure during this process which in turn, reduces variability of stopper compression, producing more consistent seals.

The process starts by placing the vial in the holder and closing the safety guard. Pressing the cycle start button engages the actuator to bring the sealing head assembly in contact with the cap until the proper sealing force is achieved. The spinning rollers will engage the skirt of the cap and the rotating sealing head performs the crimping action. The sealing head assembly then disengages the vial and raises to the home position. The Operator Interface will notify the operator that it is safe to open the guard and remove the vial.

VHP Certfied

All Integras are Certified for Use with VHP

All Integra modals have been certified for use with Vaporized Hydrogen Peroxide making them ideal for small batch use within an isolator.


The Integra Single Vial Unit

The base modal Integra is available as a single vial unit in which the operator places a single assembled vial package onto the Integra one at a time for crimping.
