  • For over 50 years the Watson-MarlowPumps Group has led the world inperistaltic pumping innovation, thetechnology of choice for high purity fluidhandling in the pharmaceutical, biotechand diagnostics industries.

    PRECISIONFor Watson-Marlow Flexicon customers it is

    vital that our machines work with highprecision. Not only do we satisfy that demand;we deliver exactly what has been ordered ontime, every time. Todays industry also requiressafe operation with minimum risk to process,product and personnel. We accomplish thisthrough our unique peristaltic filling systems.

    EFFICIENCYOur customers can produce small and

    medium sized batches securely and profitably.Watson-Marlow Flexicons equipment isreliable, easy to operate and requires minimalmaintenance at long intervals. We offer firstclass after-sales service and full documentationfor all our products. In performance as well asquality, we deliver what we say we will.

    Our Flexicon range of filling and cappingequipment provides solutions with theprecision, efficiency and flexibility thatcustomers have come to know and trustfrom Watson-Marlow.

    A peristaltic pumps low-shear action is created bycompressing a tube. Insidethe single-use tube the fluidis driven forward by rollerswhile the tubes recovery

    behind each roller draws in more fluid. Thepump is perfect for moving fluid asepticallybecause the fluid stays within the tube. Unlike

    Peristaltic pumping - the solution for high puritypiston pumps there are no seals, valves or movingparts in its path to lead to contamination.

    Watson-Marlow peristaltic pumps and fillers arerecognized by process engineers for high quality,reliability and performance. Our equipment helpsengineers simplify validation, improve yield andreduce expensive downtime.

    FLEXIBILITYOur fillers are easily and quickly adjustable

    for a huge range of fill volumes, fluids,capacities and caps. We can customizeproducts to your exact requirements and youcan visit our plant to assure yourself that ourperformance matches our promise. We offer a short response time from initial contact to delivery.

    DAFPA and single-use filling

    Top quality whatever the scaleFlexicon peristaltic pumpheads and our

    own precision tubing offer pulsation-free,accurate dispensing from a benchtopsystem to full batch production.

    DAFPA is a ready-to-use, disposable fillingsystem: Disposable Aseptic Fluid PAth. Itoptimizes Watson-Marlow Flexicons peristalticliquid fillers in the biopharmaceutical industries.

    DAFPA eliminates the need for cleaning andvalidation and allows drug segregation and fastbatch change with no cross-contamination risk,thus reducing costs by eliminating expensivedowntime.

    Watson-Marlow Flexicons fillers provideunparalleled flexibility. Unlike piston fillers andother dispensers, your sterile product contactsonly the FDA approved silicone tubing.

    Simplify your cleaning validationImagine a USP Class VI fluid path that is fullytraceable from end-to-end, is simple to validateand you have DAFPA. From the bag, to thetubing through the pump, to the filling needle onyour machine, DAFPA provides an entire wetend, which is fully assembled and lot traceable.And best yet, its single use design eliminatescostly cleaning validation

    DAFPAenhances acomplete filling system,such as theFP50 shownhere

  • Flexicon tabletop fillers are designed for use incleanrooms for production processes complyingwith cGMP.

    Setting up a filling regime for vials, bottles, testtubes or other containers is achieved by loadingthe peristaltic pump tube and entering theparameters required using the intuitive keypad.

    The pump maintains a closed fluid path fromthe bulk product container to the end of the fillingnozzle. Change the path and the pump is clean,sterile and ready for the next batch. You cancontrol the filler with a foot switch or integrate itinto an automatic bottle handling system.

  • As the need for more automation grows theWatson-Marlow Flexicons product line meets theneeds of labs/clinical trails. There is also greatcare taken to minimize production downtime. Ourdesign ensures sterile production.

    The speed at which the vials/bottles arepresented at the filling needle is fully adjustable,allowing light vials and bottles to be filled.Solutions can be designed to handle bottles withspecial shapes.

    The FF20, used in conjunction with one of ourcrimp or screw capping machines, provides asimple and flexible means of production.
