  • STATIC - baskets with products stay static during the retort cycle
  • SHAKA® - technology applying hi-frequency shaking to sterilization

Steriflow continues to develop new solutions to support the customer's needs in terms of thermal treatment, associated handling and energy recovery. Current thermal process design and manufacturing possibilities include: 

  • Water Cascading (Steriflow)
  • Steam/Air (Monofan)
  • Steam/Air (Waterspray)
  • Pure Steam
  • Full/Half Immersion

The best process will always be defined for your applications: 

  • Sterilization or pasteurization
  • Single or multiple production units with manual or automatic loading
  • Multi-process lab retorts
  • Any package type: pouches, cups, trays, IV bags, syringes, vials, cans, etc…

Steriflow systems are simple to operate and very flexible. The MPI Elite and Expert are the new electronic control systems, which provide automated, independent, and repeatable process monitoring. These control systems allow for tracking & tracing of sterilization data, archiving batch data, and launching pasteurization or sterilization cycles remotely.
