Pall provides shipping industry-certified, fully integrated and flexible solutions for transportation of 100 or 200 L Allegro single-use biocontainer systems. Fill volumes as low as 50 L can safely be transported.
Allegro transportation totes can be used in any stage of the biomanufacturing process for transport of product or process fluids in Allegro biocontainers within or outside of your facility. The Allegro transportation totes have been validated and subjected to strict controls to ensure robust secure containment during transportation.
The stainless steel tote features:
- Gasket sealed lid
- Gasket-sealed chamber underneath to contain and safely transport outlet piping and attached fittings
- Foam protection pad system with tension strap retained distribution plate to prevent liquid movement
- Secure clamping of biocontainer outlet port providing best in class protection
- Tubing and top port segregation to prevent attached fittings or even filters from contacting the biocontainer during transit
Features and BenefitsInstalled biocontainers are protected from gross environmental ingress into the tote, reducing the need for cleandown when the tote is brought back into the facility after transport. Lids and tube protection chambers are all gasket sealed.
The biocontainer with process liquid is secured using robust, simple to use mechanical features:
|Bottom outlet port securely clamped and clamps locked into place ensuring no possible lateral or up and down movement of the port-biocontainer joint|
|Outlet piping connections and system components protected by locking, gasket-sealed stainless steel door|
|Biocontainer protected by foam pad, with distribution plate rigidly holding biocontainer. Distribution plate has slide-lock orifice to secure inlet port attachment tubing, fittings and separate them from the biocontainer|
|Straps secure distribution plate in position, providing securing force on biocontainer to prev¬¬ent movement and any liquid “surge” during transport conditions|
|Locking, gasket-sealed lids provide protection against gross ingress of contaminants to the upper chamber during transit. Upper chamber safely contains inlet port fittings and assemblies away from contact with the biocontainer|
