Despatch equipment plays a pivotal and multi-faceted role in the healthcare industry. Our world-renowned
depyrogenation tunnels sterilize vials used for liquid pharmaceuticals. The products we touch in the healthcare
industry often have a tremendous impact on people’s lives. In addition to pharmaceutical vials, our equipment
cures and sterilizes contact lenses and many different life-saving medical and surgical devices. Healthcare
companies turn to Despatch when only the highest standards of quality equipment will do.
With a large installed base of units in the medical field, the
performance of Despatch equipment typically exceeds process
requirements for even the most exacting customer needs. Despatch
understands well the many possible customer applications and can
offer custom designs to accommodate many processes.
For medical instrument manufacturers that need to apply polymer
coatings to products such as defibrillators, pacemakers, catheters and
surgical staples, a Despatch Industries forced convection oven with
its tight temperature tolerances provides a superior coating drying
process. By using the forced convection oven together with forced
exhaust, manufacturers realize quicker cool-down times and shorter
process cycles. The result is greater productivity with lower cost.
Optical labs find Despatch ovens well suited for curing optical
coatings needed for scratch resistance and tinting. Ovens
are available with pass-through doors for a seamless process
flow through the work cell. For curing contact lenses a nitrogen
atmosphere oven is used to prevent yellowing of the lenses.
Optical manufacturers depend on uniform internal temperatures,
accurate ramp and soak time and precise temperature
controls. Forced convection ovens from Despatch Industries
provide high air flow and tight temperature uniformity (±1°C)
as well as rapid cooling. Together, these key attributes provide
consistent coating cures, reduced cycle times, and dramatically
improved process yields—by as much as 28%.
Despatch Industries thermal processing solutions are found in
a wide variety of critical applications for the pharmaceutical
industry. Many features that are usually optional are standard with
Despatch. All our pharmaceutical solutions feature:
High-performance heating and cooling packages that reduce
cycle times and lower costs
Durable 316L stainless steel interiors for maximum
Rounded interior corners, for easier cleaning
Complete validation support documentation to comply with
21 CFR Part 11 requirements of the FDA
From R&D to production, Despatch delivers consistent,
repeatable performance that adds up to shorter cycle times,
higher productivity and lower operating costs.
