WHITE PAPERS & CASE STUDIES
Load Cells For A Portable Structure
We know that a weighing system must be rigid to get good results. We should also know that a three point system is inherently more stable than a four point system as three points define a plane. We know that we can convert a four wheel portable vessel to a three point system by using a double frame design “sandwich concept."
Manufacturing Plants Based on the Lego Principle
Smaller batches and different types of product in the same plant – these are the market demands to which more and more manufacturers in the process industries need to adjust. The answer is plants based on the “Lego principle”.
Meeting The Emerging Challenges In Manufacturing: Applications Of Lightweight Robotics
This white paper examines the advances in mechanics and controls that are enabling the practical and economical application of lightweight robotics for manufacturing on an increasingly broad scale. It is an important development in today’s “new manufacturing.”
Proportional Valves For Closed-Loop Control Of Inert Gases In Process Automation
In many process automation applications, the pressure and flow of gases are controlled. Explosion protection requirements mean that an inert atmosphere is often created and maintained in reactors and process tanks in a plant. This is usually done with nitrogen and in some cases also with argon. Other applications include the transfer of materials between process tanks and filling, using inert gas, air, sterile air and carbon dioxide.
Key Factors In The Removal Of Bacterial Endotoxins And A Cleaning Strategy
This article discusses the removal of bacterial endotoxins in a washing process and the need for a continuous monitoring activity according to common cleaning validation practices. Results of washing tests performed with different load materials following an effective cleaning strategy to remove microbiological soil are presented. In addition, this paper compares two different online assay methods: conductivity analysis and Total Organic Carbon analysis.
Safety Considerations For Gas Filtration In High-Temperature
Gas filtration using sterilization-grade filters is a key part of the production, manufacturing and packaging process of biopharmaceuticals and other products. While it may seem a simple step, there are major safety considerations that have to be taken in to account to protect staff, equipment and facilities from hazard, particularly when working in high temperature and oxygen enrichment applications.
