STERILIZATION CONTROL SOLUTION (ETHYLENE OXIDE)
Neal Systems provided a complete Allen Bradley control system for an ethylene oxide (EtO) sterilization process for a Florida-based company manufacturing medical electronics. NSI achieved major savings for the customer by having the system prebuilt before its deployment, enabling testing to take place before shipment. This reduced start-up time to a minimum. The control system ensures uniform temperature distribution throughout the sterilization process system and has an easy-to-use operator interface that is intrinsically safe, allowing remote access with “live” maintenance and diagnostics. PLC-based, the control system offers a wide choice of programmable recipes and the ability to archive batch processes and events.
DRAEGER OXYGEN DEPLETION DETECTION ENHANCES SAFETY AT REDUCED COST
Neal Systems helped a North Jersey biotech company monitor oxygen depletion from nitrogen leaks with Draeger Pointguard 2 gas monitors. This will keep employees safe and increase the time before replacement from 1 year on the previous system to 3-5 years with Draeger.
MTL GECMA REMOTE PC TERMINALS ENHANCE EFFICIENCY AND COSTS SAVINGS
Neal Systems provided MTL GECMA remote PC terminals to a major pharmaceutical company for enhanced visualization and control of hazardous areas on production floors. This data is now fed back to a central SCADA system to provide continuously updated metrics of production. Rather than remote controls that are centrally located, operators now have at their fingertips a control system with outstanding interface that results in enhanced efficiencies and cost savings.
