The Powerfuge P6 is a powerful, batch liquid/solid separation system for bacteria, yeast, proteins and sub-micron particles. The Powerfuge P6 system is a two-phase centrifuge that meets cGMP requirements as well as chemical and pharmaceutical industry protocols.
With g forces up to 20,000 X g, the Powerfuge addresses even the most challenging separations.
The Powerfuge family of products can be used for small process development volumes all the way to very large commercial manufacturing, allowing for seamless scale-up and scale-down.
The Powerfuge is designed to serve the needs of a variety of markets.
Using an innovative design, the feed is introduced through a stationary pipe and accelerated to full rotational speed before entering the titanium-alloy bowl. In this system, centrifugal forces as great as 20,000 x g permit separation of even sub-micron particles. Compressed solids are periodically removed with a fully-automated scraping cycle. After the solids have been discharged, automated CIP/SIP cycles can be performed via the PLC-controlled operating sequence.
“The UniFuge was easy to scale-up, and the Viafuge enables us to recover viable cells at large scale, beyond what single-use can typically accomplish."
