Shown above is the complete Wash-in-Place system, including tablet press, isolator and contained ancillary equipment for single-sided discharge of a double-sided press, dedicated double-HEPA dust collector and total air management system. In 1999 Fette GmbH in Schwarzenbek, Germany, developed their first Wash-in-Place Tablet Press, Model 1090 WIP. The driving force behind the development of this technology was based on the specific needs and requests of an actual client. This client was producing a potent product and therefore wished to minimize any exposure that their operators might have to it, while cleaning the press. Accomplishing this goal meant designing a press that could, in effect, clean itself, with a need for only minimal final manual cleaning following the wash cycles.
