Many pharmaceutical industries and medical devices manufacturers have to upgrade their facilities in order to either meet applicable standards, or improve their productivity, safety or reliability.
In addition, the facility upgrade allows the incorporation of advanced-technologies to increase the productivity and the equipment efficiency.
In order to face up to the new requirements that are more and more strict in the pharmaceutical sector, the sterilization equipment manufacturer has to evolve to propose sterilizers able to satisfy the needs of the pharmaceutical and medical device industries. The new technologies, the automation, the quality and the safety are part of the key elements for the success of these kinds of projects.
The ETO sterilization process is one of the most common for sensitive products to low temperatures that have to be sterilized, mainly thanks to its efficiency.
The companies of pharmaceutical and medical devices need to have reliable as well as high quality and productivity EO sterilization equipment to achieve their goals.
In the objective to improve its quality services and equipment, RSD decided to organize a specific technical ATEX training in their offices in Martorelles (SPAIN). This training has been performed by Michel Stoecklin, Ism-Atex level 3 certified by the notified body INERIS, and has been taught for RSD engineers, manufacturing staff, as well as the direct user (customer). It is quite unusual and exceptional to get a training for the whole loop engineering-manufacturing-final user, at the same time.
The Atex regulations cover many activities including the pharmaceutical and medical device industries, and it is essential for those companies to be aware of the importance of protecting people and equipment.
As far as all the engineers in RSD are certified Ism-ATEX level 2 by the notified body INERIS, we can offer Atex safety audit services for Atex installations in pharmaceutical and medical device sectors, and especially for ethylene oxide sterilization as it is a process for which RSD is specialized for many years.
