Saving iPolisher-C Improves Circulation, Reduces
Heat Buildup in USP Water System
generic drug manufacturer’s western New Jersey
facility’s generation system produced USP grade
water for use on-demand in R&D and manufacturing
labs. The system was a dead-end design, with close
to one mile of piping and low user draw rates. This
contributed to high bio build-up that contaminated
users’ experiments and damaged lab equipment.
System cleaning to reduce the bio load cost $6,000
per month. In addition, the system’s large circulating
pumps ran continuously, resulting in extensive heat
buildup. Existing piping was polypropylene, which
has a limited high temperature operating range and
could compromise system performance.
Facility engineers were looking to reduce the frequency
of system cleaning, improve system circulation and
reduce heat buildup ahead of a scheduled facility
expansion that would require additional system piping.
They wanted a good quality, space-saving water distribution
system that would work with existing and new piping,
accommodate low user draw, and maintain acceptable
operating temperatures. It was also important to have
a quick turnaround and meet their budget constraints.
The engineers were also looking for a pre-treatment
system to remove TOCs from the well water feed to
Pure H2O Technologies constructed a skid-mounted iPolisher-C
unit with an integrated loop cooler, duplex pumps,
polypropylene piping, duplex final filters and all
operating instrumentation and controls. A polypropylene
storage tank was also provided.
To solve the feed water problem, Pure H2O Technologies
specified an automated UV/Carbon dechlorination system
to control TOC levels from the well water supply to
the main treatment equipment.
All equipment, including the UV/Carbon pre-treatment
and loop cooler components, was factory built and
tested prior to shipment. A standard FAT was performed
and witnessed prior to shipping the equipment to the
field, building confidence in the performance and
reliability of its operation.
The space-saving, budget-friendly iPolisher-C unit
was installed and running in a few days. It proved
capable of handling the high circulation, low flow
conditions while maintaining acceptable operating
temperatures within the piping system. System cleaning
costs were greatly reduced. The unit has been operating
satisfactorily for four years.
