Keeping a Firm Grip on Sanitary Clamp Safety
For pharmaceutical and biotech companies, maintaining sterile process control is an ever-increasing challenge – one that can lead to cross-contamination, short term loss of product, long term drug shortages, lawsuits and even loss of life should sterile process be breached.
Sanitary clamps are crucial to keeping processing systems clean while allowing maintenance personnel to disconnect and reconnect piping quickly and securely. However, as simple as that sounds, making secure and sanitary process system connections consistently requires maintenance personnel to have the right clamps, the right tools, and the right training. A connection that isn’t properly secured can call the hygienic integrity of the whole processing system into question.
In addition to the risk of contamination due to manufacturing equipment issues, improper handling practices can be equally problematic. Pressure, temperature, and caustic process materials are all potential workplace hazards that can injure. When it comes to process equipment, maintenance and training are critical to ensuring reliability and safety.
This webcast, How to follow Sanitary Clamp Best Practices, shows how to help maintain sterile process control and offset the risk of improper connections from clamps, gaskets and ferrules by educating pharmaceutical and biotech workers on proper clamp assembly, inspection, installation and maintenance.
