Rapid Transfer Port

RTP (Rapid Transfer Port) is a device that is used to securely transfer material from the chamber to elsewhere, while preventing contamination of the product or the environment. RTP consists of two basic parts. Alpha port is fixed on the isolator chamber; Beta port, which is connected to Alpha port, is used as a container for material transfer. RTP is based on a double-door principle; the port into the container may not be opened until the Alpha and Beta ports are connected. RTP is often used for material output and transport or for the removal of solid waste from the chambers. The system comes in five standard sizes 105, 190, 270, 350 and 460 mm. The RTP system is manufactured from materials that are resistant to multiple sterilization (autoclave, ethylene oxide, gamma sterilization, H2O2 sterilization, etc.).

The RTP System Features:
  • Applicable to connecting the beta flange of a transfer isolator to the alpha flange of a filling isolator
  • Safety systems to protect against accidental detachment
  • The Alpha door cannot be opened if the Beta container is incorrectly connected or placed.
  • When the Alpha door is opened, the Beta container cannot be disconnected.
  • Modular design is easily incorporated in to new isolator systems or retrofitted into existing installations
  • Leak tight construction
  • Customized beta port can be designed as per alpha port

BETA CANISTER/CONTAINER

The security mechanism is fully interlocked with the following automatic functions

Beta container enables the material transfer without contamination of the material contained. Once the Beta part is coupled with the Alpha port, the port can be opened and the operator can introduce or remove materials from the controlled containment area.

  • Beta container can be sterilized in autoclave in order to sterilize the material contained before introduction in the sterile area.
  • The beta cannot be detached from the alpha door while the alpha door is open.
  • Nominal beta sizes available are 190mm, 270mm, 350mm
  • Beta canister volume can be customised
  • Customised beta canister for any alpha port
