Active Pharmaceutical Ingredients - Modular System

Cambridge Fluid Systems worked closely with a major EPCM contractor and the end user to design, manufacture, Factory Acceptance Test (FAT) and install thirteen “plug & play” API Modular Pilot Plant process modules.

Working with constraints including both maximum module size and weight, process equipment was housed in mobile stainless steel frames to give maximum flexibility and optimum maintainability. Pipework was installed in stainless steel; Hastelloy and PFA, with many lines insulated and clad.

The modules are designed to seamlessly integrate into the new Pilot Plant. Remote I/O and Motor Control Cabinets are mounted on board the module. This intelligent solution provides ease of integration into the plant DCS.

3D Solidworks was the modelling platform or choice, providing an invaluable aid during Design Qualification (DQ) meetings, allowing stakeholders to assess the suitability of the layout, and providing a user-friendly method of line by line checking and approval.

All engineering work was carried out in a separate dedicated facility, with offices provided for the client support team ensuring total confidentiality for all activities.

Full FDA standard documentation was provided by CFS.
