Custom Rigid Plastic Equipment

ESI Ultrapure with Non-Metallic Solutions (NMS) will be happy to work with you to design the best Custom Plastic Solution for your unique process, including totes, process deployment carts, and accessories for Biotechnology and Pharmaceutical industries.

Rigid plastic is cheaper than Stainless Steel especially for complicated customization.  Better chemical resistance than SS comparable units. NMS ensures LOT traceability, biocompatibility certifications, and adherence to customer specifications.

Specialised Components

Non-Metallic Equipment Features

  • All products are completely customizable to customer’s requirements.
  • Products are made to support the use of Single-Use throughout a process by making it more ergonomic and secure.
  • All products are produced ensuring LOT traceability, biocompatibility certifications, and adherence to customer specifications.
  • MoC: Polypropylene (PP) and Polyethylene (PE).
  • Totes and Carts:
    • NMS use Pad-Casters which are cleanroom rated, non-marking and rated for 1500 lbs.
    • Designed using a pre-sag system to ensure the tote can adjust when the load is introduced.

Benefits NMS Equipment over Stainless Steel

  • Rigid plastic is cheaper than Stainless Steel especially for complicated customization. It’s much harder to customize SS due to the large amount of welding & cutting.
  • Better chemical resistance than SS which can pit or wheels / castors fail due to CIP or sanitisation fluids and their corrosive nature
  • Cleaner finish – white plastic.
  • Overall life span is much longer than SS comparable units. In most plants SS equipment is changed yearly as it’s worn from all the CIP fluids. NMS products last for several years.
  • Standard SS carts (eg. Metro Carts) use Post-Casters – only rated for 200-300 lbs. NMS equipment use Pad-Castors.

Benefits to Plastic Competitors

  • Stronger and cleaner weld: NMS’ fusion welding allows the plastic to better flow without entraining air bubbles into the weld.
  • Easier to clean as the welds are smooth and without voids.
  • NMS products are designed using a pre-sag system to ensure they can adjust when the load is introduced.

NMS Fusion Process

The ferrule on the right side of the piece represents a traditional weld. The port is placed over a cut hole and simply welded into place. The ferrule on the left side of the piece represents NMS‘ fusion capabilities. When a port is placed on a carboy, tank, or diptube assembly, the items are first fused together. The end result is a crevice free joint – a huge advantage to these types of items.

Carts and totes are welded/fused using a hot inert gas. This allows the plastic to better flow without entraining air bubble into the weld. The result is a stronger and cleaner weld. For the customer, this not only means a secure tote, but a tote that is easier to clean. The welds are smooth and without voids.
