The vessel design achieves pressure certification with a lightweight vessel, improves ease of handling, reduces initial costs and results in lowest cost-per-use. It also ensures negligible dead volumes (50 ml) and long vessel and component lifetimes. Simple construction with head plate comprising only one O-ring seal allows quick and reliable closure with slotted nut or triclamp. All vessels are equipped with protective hand rail or rim top and bottom, standard connections, standardised diameters and transport configurations, interchangeable components. Mobility is ensured with corresponding trolleys and a full range of accessories.
Rütten vessels with steam sterilizable connections are fully compliant to cGMP and FDA guidelines for integrity and cleaning : Validatable for steam sterilization of vessel, content and steam sterilized transfers. Highest cleanability, also in standard washing machines, resulting from electropolishing and low surface roughness Ra < 0.25 µm = 10 µinch. In-situ sterilisation is possible with jacketed versions.
