Pharma Tube Sealing Machine Tool

The pharmaceutical tube sealing machine tool, or sealer, is used in clean rooms to separate sterile process equipment connected by tubes.

Typically used in pharma and the medical sectors, the sealing machine is designed to avoid any risk of proliferation of microorganisms in machines and tubes at the time of disconnection.


Legacy solutions for sealing pharmaceutical tubes

There are currently 2 types of tools already exist for sealing pharmaceutical tubes:

  • Single-use tools: Many manufacturers offer single-use solutions. You integrate a disconnector upstream or downstream of its use then via a machine or manually, the line is disconnected. Most of the time these tools are made of plastic, are simple elements to put in place but can be tedious in the long term because increase the waste and an additional cost purchasing of small proprietary elements. Finally, the risk of poor fixation could reduce its aseptic disconnection effectiveness,
  • Multi-purpose sealing machine tools: These machines seal the tubes by melting them to be ready for cutting. It is a simple solution that guarantees disconnection effectiveness without any effort. In addition, you do not need to purchase additional items, which limits costs and management within labs, hospitals and clinics. The main constraint is the use of pharmaceutical tubes that can be fusion sealed (like Saint-Gobain C-Flex tubes). More info about the C-Flex tubes.


Pharmaceutical Tubes


Pharmaceutical tubing is widely used in many fields such as medical, biotech, and pharma. Among the most used are Advantaflex® tubes and C-Flex® tubes. The applications of these tubes are various and allow you to use them for sterile processes. The different applications of pharmaceutical tubing include:

  • Cell culture operation
  • Manufacturing in the biopharma sector
  • Sterile process connection
  • Single use assembly
  • Purification operation
  • Preparation of buffers and media
  • Ultrapure water system
  • Single use fluid transfer
  • Sterile process disconnection
  • Laboratory R&D
  • Products for diagnosis


MGA Technologies pharma tubes sealing machine tool


The MGA Technologies machine tool is used to seal pharmaceutical tubes to disconnect process devices by pinching them in a locked jaw. The locking of the tube by the machine is done thanks to an electromagnetic magnet after closing clamps for a 100% sterile lock.

The operator then starts the cycle to seal the tube using fusion. The ceramic tool heats up to a temperature that slightly exceed the melting point of the pharma tube (C-Flex). A short phase of temperature maintenance makes it possible to guarantee the melting and to destroy any possibility of development of micro-organisms that would have slipped between the clamp and the tube. Then, a vane pump (included in the machine tool) cools the tube to a safe temperature for the operator. Finally, the machine releases the clamps from the tube. After a visual verification of the fusion, the tube can be sectioned easily with a pair of scissors.

Technical characteristics of the MGA Technologies sealer


The technical characteristics of the MGA Technologies sealer:

  • Machine tool adapted to seal C-Flex and TPE tubes, new or autoclaved diameter 1/4 “, 1/2” and 3/4 “,
  • Several aluminum “jaw” sizes included (for different tube diameters),
  • Usable on 110V / 220 / 230V – currents of 50 / 60Hz.

Why choosing the multi-purpose sealing machine tool?


The MGA Technologies sealing machine tool allows you to completely plug and unplug tubes repeatedly without having to buy new components.

This machine has the advantage of being integrated into FDA processes. To seal pharmaceutical tubes, it does not require a containment area and there is no risk of cross-contamination. Operators can use this machine in complete safety. It is also cleanable, making it easy to use and maintain.

Designed to be used in a cleanroom areas (ISO5 dynamic), this pharmaceutical tube sealing machine can also be used outside those areas. It is a great advantage in terms of productivity gain. Indeed, your operators do not have to go into the sterile area to perform the operation.


Advantages of the Pharmaceutical Tube Sealing Machine


The pharmaceutical tube sealing machine has many advantages:

  • It is easy to use and allows you to reduce your costs. You will not need to buy proprietary lugs or connectors to use the pharmaceutical tubes. You only have to insert the hose into the machine to seal it.
  • The machine can be used on a long-term basis. You can seal different brands of TPE tubes: Advantaflex®, C-Flex®, etc.
  • The sealing machine is locally manufactured. Indeed, this sealing machine is made in France. Thus, you can have a dedicated technical support in all France.

The other advantage of this machine is that it is automatic. Indeed, to ensure the quality of the tube connections, the cycle is carried out automatically. It is also reliable and robust since its blades have a considerable life span to perform up to 200 welds.

MGA Technologies also provides maintenance for the pharmaceutical tube sealing machine. This is a preventive maintenance in addition to the calibration of your equipment. As for spare parts, they are available in stock to carry out any repairs quickly.

The sealer saves you money, time and most importantly, avoid material logistics while limiting waste at the exit, for a cleaner and simplified environment.
