A practical addition to the ESSENTIAL series, the EC-E-SL is designed for high precision weighing of larger or heavier product formats.
Coperion K-Tron’s Smart Weigh Belt (SWB) feeder offers optional continuous online auto tare by using two Smart Force Transducer III digital weigh modules. Automatic and continuous online taring of the belt reduces costly maintenance, line shutdowns and laborious manual calibration and improves long term accuracy. The SWB feeder can be supplied in two different belt widths: 300 mm and 600 mm. The mass and volume flow rate is strongly dependent on the bulk density, the maximum allowable height of the bulk solid on the belt and the belt speed. By utilizing different control software, the Smart Weigh Belt can be used to feed material into a batch system.
Process Simulation can add value throughout the life-cycle of your facility: from master planning through start-up, de-bottlenecking and even day-to-day operations.
Christopher Crowley, president and co-owner of The Crowley Company, a world leader in the manufacturing and distribution of book, microfilm, photographic and document scanners, announces today that the company has completed two agreements with Scannx, a leading developer of cloud-based document scanning and delivery solutions for libraries.
The V28 series of inspection systems is METTLER TOLEDO's solution for manufacturers who require both label printing and inspection to take place in the same system. Available in both in-line and stand-alone configurations, the V28 series is particularly ideal for manufacturers performing small batch runs of products.
Data integrity is a primary focus of the FDA, and will continue to be so until the pharmaceutical industry takes meaningful corrective actions to address shortcomings in this area.
When Plainfield, IN, needed to double their permitted capacity from 2 MGD to 4 MGD at their South wastewater treatment plant, they faced a dilemma. Like most treatment plants, space is at a premium, and compact design was needed not only for the current expansion, including the addition of a post aeration structure, but to preserve as much room as possible for projected future expansions.
The Escalon Industrial Waste Water Treatment Facility’s service area is seasonal and centered on tomato and pickle processing. The production season (roughly mid-July through mid-October) sees high hydraulic- and BOD loads that strain the facility’s capacity. During the high season highly variable BOD load depletes DO and causes permit violations and odor complaints. Praxair installed 4 X 15 HP Medium Velocity Oxygenation (MVO™ oxygenation system), with the ability to deliver up to 6 TPD of oxygen to supplement the existing aeration capacity at the facility.
Malta is an archipelago of three islands situated in the Mediterranean Sea, around fifty miles south of Sicily. There are no rivers of any significance on the islands, and the sparse annual rainfall is only about 500 mm. There is a water deficit in Malta. It occurs especially in summer when there is a great demand from the farmers for their irrigation and from the tourism sector.
Airflow visualization testing, conducted as part of a routine review program, can help assure that aseptic filling areas remain under a state of proper control.
In the lifecycle of pharmaceutical and biopharmaceutical commercial manufacturing, the one constant has been change. With the advent of modern therapeutics, large scale commercial manufacturing became common place.
Ensuring the availability and maximizing the capacity of your assets is critical to success. Many assets are also part of more complex and larger networks of equipment, and appropriate maintenance may rely on efficiently managing shutdown projects and/or remotely identifying asset health and condition. A robust Asset Management system will help organizations in all sectors of the manufacturing industry with specific needs while maximizing asset performance.
Investing in integrated business software is a large undertaking and not something to be taken lightly. This article addresses the tasks and processes involved in implementation and how to overcome them.
To help meet the needs of both large- and small-scale operations, suppliers of sterilizing-grade filters have developed new products and technologies to help meet the needs of today’s biomanufacturing processes. Industry trends toward intensified processing and increased implementation of single-use systems are changing approaches to sterile filtration and bioburden control in biomanufacturing processes.
Fujifilm began to look at single-use technology, as it showed real potential to reduce the cost and timeline of development considerably. But would it offer the same performance as stainless steel?
