Alfa Laval MBPX is a range of high speed separators specially designed for the pharmaceutical industry and microbiological separation applications. Separation of suspended particles typically sized 0.5 – 500µm is highly efficient thanks to the unique gentle processing. The range includes machines for small batches and advanced separation systems for large scale production.
Designed for minimal shear stress, absence of oxygen, low power consumption an low noise level
- High product yield and minimal losses
- Designed to meet high hygiene demands
- High separation efficiency results in reduced fouling of downstream polishing filters
MBPX separation systems are used in production of vaccines or other biopharmaceutical products, typically for clarification i.e. harvesting of microbial cells, cell cultures and precipitated proteins.
Thanks to the unique hermetic design the MBPX separation systems achieve gentle and foam free processing and the result is high yield and minimal product losses. The fully hermetic conditions also contribute to high hygiene design by fully wetted contact areas during CIP (cleaning in place).
Customized separation system
The MBPX separators are offered as customized, fully automated systems, for safety and efficiency. Skid mounted solutions for the smaller sizes and modular system for the large systems, including piping and components for service and process liquids, as well as electrical system and PLC. The complete system module is factory tested before shipping to ensure highest reliability. Piping and materials fulfil ASME BPE standard as well as CFR part 11 and USP class VI for product wetted polymers and seal rings.
