National Bulk Equipment Inc., in cooperation with Tom Krueger, council-certified microbial consultant and president of Summit Laboratory, have released a series of six online video commentaries. Each video commentary presents the principles of sanitary-specific design and construction for bulk material handling equipment, as well as tips for attaining optimal compliance contribution from sanitary bulk material handling systems.
“I have seen far too many instances where standard equipment designs are simply constructed of stainless steel and force-fit into a sanitary application,” says Krueger. “Then, as validation and inspection times lengthen and outcomes become more unsure, the resulting doubt and downtime from these force-fit systems begins to takes its toll on the confidence and finances of the processing or packaging operation.”
This series of online video commentaries addresses the specific topics of: Sanitary Process Equipment Design, Optimal Compliance Contribution, Materials of Construction in Sanitary Process Equipment, Product Safety in Sanitary Process Equipment, Equipment Cleanability in Sanitary Process Applications, and Equipment Accessibility in Sanitary Process Applications.
