A project to supply a turn-key Sampling Facility
This has recently been installed at Intervet, Igoville France. Intervet now part of Merck awarded Extract Technology the contract for the sampling facility based upon the experience and knowledge on turn-key facilities within the Extract team.
Air classification within the sampling area is assured when using Laminar Air Flow technology and incorporating positively pressurised Airlocks thus preventing warehouse air entering the facility.
At the heart of the facility is a Downflow Booth where the sampling operations take place, this provides a guaranteed level of operator protection during sampling however to achieve the higher demands from specific products a high containment barrier screen is integrated within the Booth. Material airlocks are positioned both sides of the Booth with rapid roller shutter doors to enhance material flow and a dedicated personnel entry/exit Airlock.
An automated roller conveying system is incorporated within the facility; pallets are stacked on the entry feed and via a local operator panel mounted within the Booth the operator controls the conveying system indexing the pallets in and out of the Sampling Area.
Following a successful installation the Project Manager on site commented, “Extract Technology designed and manufactured a custom made solution which completely satisfied our requirements. On future projects we will be repeating our business with Extract Technology”.
