A pharmaceutical manufacturer expanded their Baltimore facility by constructing a new building to house a process suite for one of their new products. The installed process equipment consisted of nine solution preparation tanks, six coating pans, air handling system, and all associated mechanical, electrical, instrumentation and controls. The processing area had a hazardous area classification of Class 1, Div 1 and was designed to comply with FDA GMP standards. The new control system consisted of an Allen Bradley PLC and associated I/O, eight PanelView Plus operator terminals and one master Operator Workstation running Wonderare Intouch. All devices communicated via Ethernet.
