FAT finished 1 May 2018

On 1st of May 2018 FAT was finished. The equipment included a separator unit, a CIP-station 2×200 L and a 50 L freeze-dryer.

On the first day we checked the documentation for every piece of equipment, checked the equipment components presence and dimensions (for the CIP station and the freeze-dryer) and electric parts presence according to the P&ID (for the separator).

On the second day of FAT we did more tests:
– electrical wiring integration test for the CIP station and the freeze-dryer
– components integration test for the separator
– condencer cooling verification test for the freeze-dryer
– vacuum performance verification test for the freeze-dryer

On the third day of FAT we conducted the following tests:
– digital/analog i/o functional test and electrical safety integration test for the CIP station
– components integration test and electrical wiring integration test for the separator
– shelf temperature performance verification test and shelf heat-up rate & max temperature test for the freeze-dryer
