New Distribution Partners for Refine Technology in Europe

January 22, 2018

Refine Technology is pleased to announce new partnerships in Europe for the promotion and sale of the CleanLine™ 1.5” Single Use Connector. The company has appointed several of the Indutrade group of companies as distribution partners. Indutrade is an international industrial group that sells high-tech products and solutions helping customers to improve their own products as well as streamline their own production processes. The continued expansion of sales channels in Europe represents a strong indication of the adoption potential for Refine Technology’s unique new connector in various single use bioprocessing applications.

Refine Technology has partnered with the following companies and regions in Europe:

CleanLine Connector

ESI – UltraPure in Ireland & the UK
ESI – Benelux in The Netherlands, Belgium & Luxembourg
Colly – Flowtech/UltraPure in Sweden, Denmark & Norway
Avintos – UltraPure in Switzerland & Austria

These are all very successful and well managed companies with an active customer base and experience in the fields of bio-production and single use manufacturing. We are confident in the level of expertise and professionalism that each of these companies brings towards increasing adoption of the CleanLine™ Connector and are looking forward to leveraging the relationships and influence of each company to continue to promote this unique technology into the market.

The CleanLine™ 1.5” Single Use Connector is designed for high volume sterile fluid transfers and can be used to provide operational efficiency in many areas of upstream and downstream bioprocessing. As single use bioprocessing has scaled up to 2,000 liters or more there is an increased need to also increase the size of the tubing assemblies needed to move fluid from one process step to another. The CleanLine™ Connector can provide fluid flow rates of up to 290 liters/minute, hold pressures of up to 80 psi or a vacuum of up to 26” Hg. It is a very robust and reliable product that can also work with hybrid stainless steel / single use systems that use standard 1.5” sanitary ports.

Company expects to gain traction for single use bioprocessing applications requiring rapid sterile fluid transfer.

CleanLine Connector Assembly

Assembled CleanLine 1.5″ Single -Use Connector

Pine Brook, NJ  – July 11, 2017.  Today, Refine Technology, most known for developing the award winning ATF™ System for cell perfusion, announced distribution arrangements with three companies to help promote and sell its new CleanLine™ 1.5” Single Use Connector on the east coast.  Refine Technology has partnered with Triangle Process Equipment in Wilson, NC, Accuflow Systems in Frederick, MD and Casella Process Systems in Barrington, NH to help develop the market for improved high volume, low shear sterile fluid flow rates in single use bioprocessing.

“We are very excited to be working with each of these companies,” said Chris Bartlett, Refine Technology’s Business Development Director. “Each company has unique strengths in the bioprocess and single use bioprocessing market as well as existing relationships with each other. Information and resources are shared along the east coast which is a huge benefit to end users looking for a comprehensive and efficient supply chain.”

With flow rates of up to 290 liters/minute, the CleanLine™ 1.5” Single Use Connector was developed to address sterile fluid flow inefficiencies with 2,000 liter or larger single use bags (SUB’s) that are constrained by smaller 1” sterile fluid transfer lines between process steps.  There are many other application areas for this new connector, which was launched in January 2017, including media preparation and transfer, upstream to downstream transfer, sterile waste removal from the process stream, connecting hybrid stainless steel / single use bioreactor systems and any other areas where rapid sterile fluid flow rates with low shear are important.

According to Erik Mueller, General Manager of Accuflow Systems, “The Cleanline 1.5” Single Use Connector will enable customers to efficiently transfer large volumes of sterile liquid media and shorten the emptying of large bioprocess bags from what used to take hours to minutes, improving operational efficiencies. The sales teams at Accuflow, Triangle and Casella will be able to offer this unique product across the entire east coast and support Refine by stocking the product at all of our warehouses.”

Refine Technology looks to continue expansion of its distribution network across the US and internationally, but views the east coast as a strong cornerstone to help build awareness to this new market for high volume, low shear sterile fluid transfers.
