Sowerby Bridge, West Yorkshire, United Kingdom, 2008/03/20 - Aflex Hose Ltd today launch Flowtag, an RFID system tailor made to suit the exacting demands of the Pharmaceutical, Biotech, Chemical and Food industries - Flowtag.com.
There are RFID systems on the market that have been adapted for the Pharmaceutical, Biotech, Chemical and Food industries that have their foundations in the packaging industry. These systems were designed to work at ground level on flat surfaces in multi packaging plants, not in clean room environments or at extreme temperatures, and certainly not at heights in confined spaces that are not easily accessible.
Our Aflex design team, who were responsible for the conception of BIOFLEX, CORROFLON and HYDRALINE considered the issues you faced. We consulted your industry leaders, we then forged together the Aflex expertise and your industry requirements and so Flowtag was born - an RFID system designed for your application.
The Flowtag RFID system puts you in control of your hose and production environment. No more searching for Test Certificates, FDA or USP approvals. It brings a strict control of test, cleaning and replacement dates.
The user friendly system incorporates a hand held scanner that when in scan mode identifies the required hose or piece of production equipment using LED identification, eliminating the need to manually search for equipment. The system can read tags up to a distance of 100 mtrs (300 ft), so all items of plant become accessible.
The Flowtag RFID system comes with a full technical support package and guarantee. Combine all this with Atex approval, CE Certification and ROHS compliance and you have a tracking and control system to cater for your Company's exacting requirements.
