Elfab is today launching a new solution designed to meet the needs of the global pharmaceutical industry. Pure-Gard is a pressure relief device specifically for use in sanitary (hygienic) manufacturing environments such as pharmaceutical and food. The product has been designed and developed by Elfab’s engineers at the company’s headquarters in North Shields.
The main applications for the product will be in sanitary process industries where cleanliness and compliance are critical. The industry requirements for cleanability are met by the crevice and dimple free design with a rigorous testing program including dye penetrant testing, helium leak testing and an independent riboflavin test all providing evidence of the product’s cleanability.
Elfab’s design team has developed a novel one-piece assembly, providing protection for the rupture disc, avoiding the risk of damage at the point of installation and giving structural stability. Another feature that sets Pure-Gard apart from conventional sanitary pressure relief solutions and extends the product’s life is that the solution is independent of the gasket, allowing regular change of the gaskets when required.
Commercial Director, Chris Billinge, commented: “We’re extremely proud to be launching this product, which the team at Elfab has worked diligently on over recent months. Pure-Gard is the result of listening to the market and understanding the challenges our customers face in the pursuit of maximizing processing output and efficiency whilst maintaining a safe manufacturing environment. Our innovative solution will benefit manufacturers operating in unique and complex environments such as pharmaceutical.”
Sally Cowling, Marketing Manager, added: “We have worked closely with existing customers to ensure we are meeting their needs with our new solution and we’re excited to be bringing to market an innovative product which will bring benefits to a global industry.”
Pure-Gard will be manufactured in Elfab’s facility in North Shields, alongside its other products which are used in various industries worldwide to provide protection for people, equipment, processes, and the environment.Click here for related articles and news
