Wherever work involves using active ingredients, cleanliness is of the highest priority; production equipment has to be thoroughly cleaned every time it is used. And of course this makes the system prone to wear. Unless you use corrosion-resistant, stainless steel components from Festo. They are more resistant. For example in cleaning systems from ROTAN for the pharmaceutical industry.
Every time the vessels are cleaned, the personal safety cabin and the cleaning chamber must be cleaned and decontaminated too. During normal operation this is done once an hour with water, acid and lye, and under certain circumstances with customer-specific cleaning agents as well.
In these type of cases it is extremely important that the automation components used are sturdy and reliable; every failure or machine stoppage during the cleaning process results in complex, time-consuming intervention. Service personnel therefore have to wear special personal safety equipment because they are at high risk of contamination.
