Need an Innovative Way to Eliminate Dead Legs?

Try a Block Body In the biopharmaceutical industry, the need to innovate is driven by the need for improved yields, lower costs, faster production, and improved safety. When it comes to systems design, one of the improvements is reducing and eliminating dead legs.   Dead legs are typically defined in terms of a length to diameter ratio (L/D). Initially, the…

The Key to Clean in Place (CIP) is Good Process Design

CIP is the foundation process in modern aseptic facilities. Good CIP designs provide for efficient, repeatable, and validateable cleaning of aseptic systems. A good CIP system design includes a comprehensive CIP skid at its heart, and the skid’s design must address all the equipment to be cleaned: tanks, piping, valves, hoses, mixers, blenders, centrifuges, instrumentation sensors, ad infinitum. The task…

ASEPCO Takeoff Valves Kill Dead Legs at “Tees”

The ASEPCO Weirless Radial-Diaphragm Takeoff Valve Family is suited for any critical CIP/SIP application where a “tee” and its associated dead leg must be eliminated. Key applications include: point of use or “drops” for pure waters (including WFI) as well as sampling, draining, transferring, or diverting from a line or manifolds. The two ASEPCO valves in this family are the…

Killer Apps: Insulate Valve

  Losing Product Yield Due to Temperature Control Issues? When working with extremely temperature-sensitive products, you can easily lose yield if you don’t fully insulate your vessel. The area of highest risk is where the outlet valve connects to the tank. Most of the time, it’s just not possible to fully insulate around a typical drain valve. One common solution is to create a…

Comparing Permanent, Single-Use, and Hybrid Systems

During the last decade, the push within the biopharmaceutical industry has been three-fold: increase capacity, gain flexibility, and decrease costs. All of these factors have led to the adoption of single-use systems (SUS) in biopharmaceutical manufacturing; however, complete adoption of an SUS may not be the best plan. There are still situations in which stainless steel has advantages. We have…
