Pre-engineered Water Purification System Equals Fast Installation, Smooth Start-upUSFilter will introduce its new PreVUE(tm) system at the INTERPHEX Conference and Exhibition held March 31-April 2 in New York City. The pre-engineered, modular biopharmaceutical water purification system will be featured in USFilter’s booth #1243.
The PreVUE(tm) system reduces delivery, installation, start-up and validation times–compressing the time from system purchase to production of validated USP purified water.
The system combines the strength of two proven USFilter technologies–CDI-LX(tm) continuous electrodeionization system and full fit polyamide reverse osmosis membranes–into a single packaged system. USFilter has installed more than 2,000 CDI systems with over one-third in validated pharmaceutical applications.
The system is hot water sanitizable at 85 degrees C to enhance microbiological control and is integrated through a central control system that is designed to comply with 21 CFR Part 11.
The skidded system includes a pretreatment step, which softens and filters the feedwater reducing hardness and suspended solids. A break tank simplifies operation by self-regulating pressure to the reverse osmosis unit, recycles waste streams, and eliminates the need for further equipment for chemical sanitization. The reverse osmosis and CDI-LX(tm) systems are the core of the PreVUE system providing consistent, high quality USP water without the use of chemicals.
The PreVUE system features
· cGMP design and construction
· Comprehensive validation and documentation per GAMP 4 standards
· Latest PLC technology for optimum process security
· Full-fit RO membranes for reduced biological contamination
· Continuous electrodeionization for reliable operation
· Fully functional, wet Factory Acceptance Test, complete with loaded membranes to demonstrate both performance and efficacy of the sanitization cycle.
Customers can witness their Factory Acceptance Test at USFilter’s Colorado Springs, Colo. manufacturing facility, which is an ISO 9001 and Class II Medical Device Manufacturer registered facility.
