The Challenge

Small components and manufacturing equipment require routine cleaning, and mobile vessels need occasional treatment. The procedure involves using chemicals for the cleaning process and includes recirculated washing and rinsing and the facility for a single pass final rinse. As highlighted by many customers, there is often limited space for installing a large washer to accommodate the vessels. Additionally, a large washer would not make sense for the quantity/size of the smaller items.

Steelco Proposal

Our Steelco Pharma team then proposed an extremely innovative Cleaning Out of Place (COP) system, combining a standard, medium-sized GMP parts washer for the smaller items with a cleaning station for the mobile tanks. The two applications share the same hydraulic system to deliver cleaning and rinsing solution, the same instrumentation to control and measure the critical process parameters (temperature, pressure, conductivity, etc.), and the same heated and HEPA filtered air drying system. Again, a comprehensive solution in a compact and complete design, saving valuable GMP floorspace.
