Reactivity and Process Safety Support for Pharmaceutical Pilot Plant

The Challenge

An international pharmaceutical company has an aggressive schedule for new product development and needs technical support with respect to reactivity testing and process safety in their pilot plant.

Our Approach

We provided an overall process for conducting reactivity testing in the form of a six best-practices type; simple, practical and easy to use documents with examples. Included in these documents were a number of practical tools consisting of public-domain software and proven spreadsheets and computational tools from our exclusive partner ioMosaic Corporation. Finally, we provided training to assist in the implementation of each best practice and associated tools.

The Benefits

The client has purchased reactivity-testing equipment and will be conducting their own testing. The reactivity screening tools provided are helping to identify significant reactivity hazards that need to be evaluated in process hazard analyses.
