Powder containment and aseptic transfer valve specialist, ChargePoint Technology, has launched a unique Smart monitoring hub to support efficiency and safety within chemical and pharmaceutical manufacturing processes. The company will be exhibiting its new VERIFI solution at ACHEMA 2018, in Hall 3.0, stand D14.
ChargePoint contained transfer devices are critical to ensuring integrity of product handling during high potency and sterile manufacturing, enabling manufacturers to meet their product quality, operator safety and productivity targets. Now, with VERIFI, manufacturers have an automatic / reliable method of understanding the health status of the device allowing them to better control risk and ensure consistent integrity throughout the life-cycle of the system and its critical components.
VERIFI is connected directly onto the ChargePoint Active valve unit so continuously records data and delivers alerts to its users. Its LED display provides operators with visual feedback, giving the user confidence and safety and quality teams peace of mind. Service advice allows maintenance teams to take preventative action, resulting in less downtime and improved efficiency.
Data can also be synchronised via WIFI to the secure VERIFI Portal, where data is stored in the cloud for production and process managers to analyse remotely and export for further reporting.
Ben Wylie, Product and Channel Marketing Manager of ChargePoint said: “Meeting the increasing pressures that exist in a production environment can be a challenge, including not only managing the risks associated with Industrial Hygiene and Quality but also meeting operational efficiency targets too”.
“This unique technology that we are launching reinforces our commitment to continuously adapting to market challenges and offering such advancements to our customers is something that we are extremely proud of. We have experienced a growing demand for our containment technologies globally over the past 12 months. As the ‘biotech boom’ and the use of high potency APIs continues, we can continue to invest in this market, offering safe and efficient material transfer solutions.
“Not only are we seeing enormous support for our new monitoring technology but our split butterfly valve (SBV) is growing in popularity worldwide, with the industry adopting it as an alternative to more cumbersome and costly containment solutions.”
ChargePoint Technology’s other solutions include its AseptiSafe® range providing increased sterility assurance for ingredient and small component transfers in aseptic processing and sterile API production. The PharmaSafe® powder containment valves offer the highest level of containment performance to ensure the safe handling of potent APIs, intermediates and pharmaceutical formulations.
