HVL Capacity Expansion: 3 x 5,000l storage tanks with CIP system, Aspen, East London

June 2019 In 2011, Anderson installed the original HVL system for Aspen in East London which is currently used to manufacture over the counter pharmaceutical liquid medicines. This plant included three manufacturing tanks and six storage tanks along with the associated ancillary manufacturing equipment. The 2019 project was an expansion of the original plant which required an addition of 3 x 5,000 litre storage tanks, the integration of these additional tanks into the existing system and the addition of a new 4,000 litre CIP system. Integrating the new equipment into the existing infrastructure was challenging as the plant was not originally designed to cater for future expansion. We worked with the client extensively to understand what improvements we could make to the existing system and how these could be incorporated into the new facility. This challenged our design team where a lot of scenarios were considered in the process design. The project involved the fitting of new swing bend panels, new valves and pipework, the addition of a new PLC, networking into the existing PLC as well as the major challenge of feeding the new filling line with product and CIP.   The complete turnkey services and scope of the […]

Manufacture and supply of 1 x 1,000l portable storage vessel with ancillaries for leading pharmaceutical manufacturer, Durban October 2019

This pharmaceutical manufacturing company based in Kwa-Zulu Natal, Durban, has been operating for 34 years, supplying both the private and public sector with medicinal products in the form of syrups, tablets, powders, capsules syrups and creams. They also offer contract manufacturing services and had an opportunity to manufacture a product for one of long-standing clients, Aspen. Aspen introduced us to the client to assist them in developing the same processing plant that Aspen use for their liquid pharmaceuticals. Being aware of our standard of work and our ability to produce the required documentation for their level of product, Aspen recommended us. In order to meet the regulations and high standards required by the pharmaceutical industry, the brief was to develop the same conditions of the processing plant and mixing process currently being used at Aspen, to ensure the same consistent output of end product. We developed an innovative custom made manual mobile CIP system for the client. The versatility of this system means it can be manually moved to the area or equipment cleaning is required and the system is then manually connected via the flexible hoses and it is then also manually controlled. The simplicity of this CIP system […]
