AboutViscoTec Pumpen- u. Dosiertechnik GmbH
ViscoTec has been founded as a department of Resch Maschinenbau GmbH. The departments primarily focused on developing pump technology for the food, pharmaceutical and chemicals industries. In 1997, ViscoTec Pumpen- u. Dosiertechnik GmbH was founded and started in an office in Mühldorf. Since 2001, the business is managed from Töging a. Inn. In 2007, ViscoTec registered a milestone in sales by delivering 20,000 pump and in 2008 the brand „preeflow®“was implemented. In the following years, the company successfully established subsidiaries of ViscoTec America Inc. in (2009) Georgia, USA, ViscoTec Asia Pte Ltd in Singapore (2011) and ViscoTec Shanghai Ltd. in Shanghai (2013). In 2011, the company has relocated into a new building in Toeging (Bavaria), which remains the company global headquarters till today. In 2015 the company successfully delivered its 30,000 pump to the customers. The company currently employs around 120 people worldwide. The organizational structure consists of the following divisions: Adhesives & Chemicals, Food, Pharma, Components &Devices and 3D printing.
ViscoTec offers ideal solutions for high-precision and shear sensitive filling, gentle conveying and metering of pharmaceutical fluids, from liquids to semi-solids. For the Pharma-Dispenser series, the requirements of the pharmaceutical industry (GMP) concerning hygienic design and documentation are consistently implemented.The Pharma Dispenser itself meets the highest hygienic and cleaning standards and owns an EHEDG certificate (European Hygienic Engineering and Design Group). Used elastomers are FDA-conform. All metallic components own the 3.1 inspection certificate DIN EN 10204. The commissioning documentation will be finished on the basis of EU-GMP guidelines and recommendations of PIC (Pharmaceutical Inspection Convention).
ViscoTec pharmaceutical dispensers have an excellent cleaning properties due to the tool less and quick and easy disassembling. The interior is dead space optimized. All wetted contact parts can be sterilized in an autoclave. To protect the materials against harmful environmental influences and to protect the environment against unplanned product leakage the seal housing specially designed for the pharmaceutical sector is equipped with a locking chamber (quench). The VPHD series was specially developed for applications in the fields of pharmaceutical, biotechnological and dental industries.
The advantage of pharmaceutical control is to control the flow rate and the desired dosing volume with a simple but accurate system. By direct input using the Touch Panel the parameters dosing volume and speed, calibration and suck-back at the end of dosing (to avoid dripping) reliably can be set. The accuracy of the dosage is more than 99%. Controlling via a higher-level control is possible at any time. The SPS transfers the parameter, for example via profibus to the pharmaceutical control.
To better meet the requirements of cycle times in the pharmaceutical and biotechnological production of filling quantities of 10-20 ml, the 2VPHD12-3D Pharma Dispenser has been developed for larger volumes. Compared to dispensers with the same size thereby the capacity is increased by 300 % up to 714 ml/min. The dispenser is, for example, ideally suited for integration in syringe filling lines of high viscosity hydrogels. Due to the cycle times of 1 sec for filling 10 ml gel it integrates itself perfectly into the required filling process.
