PROJECT BRIEFEECO2 was asked to assist in reducing energy demand at a tablet manufacturing facility without compromising product quality or regulatory compliance. Challenges included:
- High volumes of fresh air requiring dehumidification in very challenging ambient conditions
- Adapting the HVAC system to meet current manufacturing requirements
- Reducing the volume of the dust extraction system and install VSD
- Initiating no operational setbacks.
Our work included:
Install a fresh air cooling coil to eliminate dehumidification within the air handling unit (AHU)
Rebalance the areas dust extraction system to eliminate nozzles no longer required
Install a VSD onto the dust extraction unit to maintain pipework carrier velocity consequently enabling a reduced fresh air volume
Rebalance the Air Change Rates to reflect area manufacturing change of use.
Initiate non-operational air volume reductions.
Optimise BMS system.
Product risk assessments were developed with the site QA, production & engineering team.
Risk mitigation was evaluated and included where required.
Final design changes reflected a risk averse approach.
It’s going to be a tough year and to know that we have such a good team supporting some of these changes makes the job a lot easier.
