EcoSecur: Stoelzle’s Innovative Approach to Inner-Surface Treatment of Type 2 Pharma Glass
Stoelzle has pioneered EcoSecur, an innovative, resource-efficient, safe, and stable process for treating the inner surface of Type 2 glass injection and infusion vials, which are utilized in both human and veterinary medicine. Type 2 glass, also known as ‘treated soda-lime glass,’ is specifically designed for containers holding liquid products that are either acidic or alkali-neutral for parenteral or other uses.
This groundbreaking technique employs a liquid treatment process that allows for precise dosing customized to each bottle’s size, ranging from 6ml vials to much larger volumes.
The manufacturing process for type 2 glass surpasses existing technologies in terms of quality, process stability, and reliability, ensuring exceptional performance. Through the innovative EcoSecur process, Stoelzle has successfully reduced the use of chemical components by up to 50% while decreasing CO2 emissions by up to 80%. This significant reduction translates into a minimized environmental footprint. Furthermore, by using liquid ammonium sulfate, Stoelzle has addressed safety concerns associated with chemical usage.
Maintaining quality control is paramount to Stoelzle’s commitment to excellence. The introduction of process automation and automated control during the industrialization phase was crucial for success. This automation guarantees compliance with predetermined conditions at each stage of the process. The system incorporates automatic adjustments and controls to ensure accurate treatment for every bottle. This comprehensive automation creates a controlled manufacturing environment with 100% oversight, utilizing state-of-the-art inspection machines equipped with fiber optic and chamber inspection systems.
Stoelzle’s EcoSecur type 2 glass product line includes a wide range of sizes, from 6ml to 500ml, available in both flint and amber glass options. They fully comply with EU and US pharmacopeia standards, ensuring the highest safety for patients.
Glass: The Ideal Packaging Material for Healthcare Products
Primary Packaging Glass is unequivocally the most suitable material for packaging Nutraceuticals, Cosmeceuticals, and CBD products. Glass is 100% recyclable and easily refillable and reusable, reducing waste and conserving resources. Moreover, glass serves as a natural barrier against external elements, including UV rays. Health and pharmaceutical products frequently utilize amber glass to filter out light and protect the inner product from oxidation, which is particularly crucial for packaging CBD. As a world-leading glass manufacturer, Stoelzle offers a range of packaging solutions for CBD products, including GL 18 (EURO) dropper bottles in both amber and flint glass, ranging from 2.5 to 250 ml. Additionally, we provide regular, tamper-evident, and child-resistant closures.
