groninger single-use filling needle

Single-Use Filling Needles

Increase production while reducing risk and utility consumption

groninger single-use filling needles are available in different sizes, are compatible with groninger filling machines but can also be integrated by various machine vendors. Unlike multi-use needles, our single-use filling needles are provided cleaned and gamma irradiated, sterile and double packed. This eliminates the need for the end-user to perform any cleaning or sterilization of the needles. The needles are manufactured out of SST 316L/1.4435 according to DIN EN 10204 3.1. They have an inside and outside surface roughness of Ra 0.4 (except welding seams). With our best in-class single-use filling needle, we ensure optimum fill/finish results by establishing the highest quality standards.

Benefits of Single-Use Filling Needles

  • Eliminates the need for inline CIP/SIP
  • Reduced CAPEX
  • Reduced risk for cross contamination
  • Closed system/process
  • Increased machine availability

Our single-use filling needles can be integrated into a final fill set manufactured by a single-use equipment supplier, or directly ordered and integrated by the end-user.

The needles are validated which includes the following:


  • Validation and revalidation of microbiological reduction (EN ISO 11737)

  • Cytotoxicity (EN ISO 10993)
  • Bioburden (EN ISO 11737)


  • Validation and revalidation of gamma sterilization (EN ISO 11137) 
  • Validation on sterile barrier (EN ISO 11607, ASTM F 1980)
  • Transport validation (EN ISO 11607, ISTA 2A)
  • Accelerated storage-testing (EN ISO 11607, ASTM F 1980)


  • Temperature range: 10–25 ºC
  • Humidity: 30–60%
  • Sterilization method: Gamma (min. 25 kGy)
  • Max. dose: 50 kGy
  • Working temperature range: 5–45 ºC    
  • UV protected, avoid direct solar irradiation
