Eudragit RS 30 D Fluid Bed

Detergent Used: Chematic RL/RS

The Challenge:

The current cleaning process is inefficient, timely and costly. The inefficient process involved manual cleaning, was labor intensive, used solvents & scrubbing, damaged equipment, took up to 24 hours to clean, produced variable results from operator to operator, and used temperatures of up to 80C.

The Solution: 

Utilize Chematic RL/RS detergent to create a more efficient process. Using Chematic RL/RS we hope to achieve:

  • Reduced Cleaning Time
  • Decreased Labor
  • Reproducible results
  • Simplify the process

The Results:

Using Chematic RL/RS detergent reduced the cleaning time by 83% (4 hours vs 24 hours) and used chemistry by applying chemical spray wands. The use of the mildly acidic detergent dissolved the residue with no scrubbing or isopropyl alcohol required. The temperature of the water was also reduced by 38% to improve safety for the operators.
