In-process access is provided using glovebags mounted onto nearby supports or frames, or even using inflatable frame enclosures, e.g. for sampling, rework, additions, extending product batch size, replacing piping skillets, and even cart mounted units for checking pH and other probes during operation.
A feature often lost is the need to conduct extensive clean-up and repair to transportable equipment using overbagging and a flexible retrofitted cleaning room. Such an approach will alleviate quality concerns regarding process cross-contamination. Maintenance shops can be maintained contaminant free by judicious use of many types of mobile flexible enclosures for containing equipment during decontamination and tear-down. The example shown is a multiple level contained enclosure for rear access to equipment.
All flexible containment applications exhibit environmental control functions, through minimizing cleaning waste and disposal.
Flexible polyurethane enclosures have been used for extended periods outdoors to contain the environmental waste handling in the arbor. All open operations such as screen cleaning, sampling, piping repair, tightening flanges gaskets, etc. can be enclosed individually and mounted on adjacent attachment points. The longest outdoor use of a single enclosure is 18 years without loss of clarity.
