New Containment Solutions for API handling from CSP at Achema 2018.

On the 7th of June 2018, CSP travelled to the Messe in Frankfurt, Germany to attend the world leading pharmaceutical exhibition Achema. At Achema we presented our containment products, solutions and services for containment of high potency pharmaceutical production.

We arrived in Frankfurt on Saturday 8th following a journey from our manufacturing facility in Co Cork Ireland, travelling by sea and road. On the Saturday we unloaded our truck and set up our stand. Located in hall 5 b49 – mechanical processes, we worked hard into the early hours of the morning to get our stand and products set up. We were amazed by the size of the exhibition centre where over 3,800 exhibitors were due to showcase their products the following Monday across eleven different halls. On the Sunday we came back to the exhibition centre to finish up on a few snags and add the final finishing touches to our stand.

New improved Containment solutions

The CSP engineering department has made several new advancements with our products recently.

- CSP continuous liner has been recently tested and validated.

- The CSP Vacuum wanding system has a new and improved design that provides more effective safety while operating and improved ergonomics for isolator change.

- CSP intelligent flow system has a new updated design with more features including relative humidity monitoring, temperature monitoring control and oxygen sensors.

Continuous Liner- We recently tested and validated our continuous liner system to achieve an OEB 5 level of containment. Our continuous liner system is extremely effective in containing active pharmaceutical ingredients (API’s) and other hazardous substances. The system has been CE certified and our CSP PharmaFlex PE 66 material has been ATEX certified.

Vacuum Wanding system- Our newly designed vacuum wanding unit enables personnel to safely transfer powders into vessels. It is a fully contained system. Materials such as powders, pellets or granules are transferred via flexible pipe work to its end destination. Vacuum wanding provides a cost effective flexible solution to the safe conveying of bulk materials across a broad range of industries.

Intelligent Flow system - Intelligent flow is a Programmable Logic Controller (PLC) controlled push – pull airflow unit designed to function on a sealed enclosure to provide a negative or positive pressure condition with a given volume change rate. It is available as a fixed or mobile device and can be used on a variety of applications in the pharmaceutical, medical and Biotech industries.

Exhibition Week

After a short commute from our hotel to the exhibition centre, we arrived at our stand where we were briefed by our managing director Tony O Connell who had just arrived to Frankfurt that morning. After a quick briefing from Tony it wasn’t long before the people started to flow into the exhibition centre making their way down to our stand. The week was intense and we met many people from all over the world from such countries as Ireland, Portugal, Belgium, Italy, France, Spain, Austria, Germany, Russia, India, Brazil, Japan and China who were interested in our containment solutions. Feedback on our containment solutions was excellent as we met many existing customers from overseas who currently use our solutions and services and have found them very useful for both operation and for solving their containment needs.

Overall the week was very successful. We managed to meet many interesting people throughout the exhibition from existing customers to new potential customers. We also got some time to visit other stands within the exhibition grounds where we made contact and built new relationships with new potential suppliers.
