Every Medical Gases installation must fulfil three key criteria. It must be on time, in budget and perfect both technically and aesthetically.
Medical Gases has the capability to undertake the complete process installation encompassing a wide range of materials, including:
- Degreased copper
- Acrylonitrile Butadiene Styrene (ABS) and polypropylene
- Polyvinylidene difluoride (PVDF) and Teflon™PFA
Every project has a dedicated project manager who is responsible for ensuring that the project is completed on time and in budget, negotiating all the customary challenges plus any logistical or administrative challenges specific to that project e.g. installing a system in a foreign country or accessing a building site in central London.
Every Medical Gases system is rigorously tested to ensure full compliance with safety, integrity and performance requirements.
Testing and analysis procedures for medical and laboratory gas systems can include:
- Pressure testing
- Anti-confusion testing
- Zone valve testing
- Non-interchange ability testing
- Terminal flow rate and pressure test
- Manifold and plant operation test
- Alarm function test
- Particulate testing
Boroscoping is used to check the pure water systems prior to commissioning.
Hydrogenation systems are tested using the Pressure Equipment Directive
(PED) standard regulations that govern this type of system.
Puretech’s in-house validation team take control of the qualification process by providing documentation to verify the design, installation and operational requirements.
The documentation package can include:
- Design specifications
- Good automated manufacturing practice (GAMP) documentation
- Weld procedures and qualifications
- Weld logs and isometric drawings
- Material certificates
- System completion certificate
- Passivation records
- As-built drawings
- Video boroscoping
- Operation and maintenance (O&M) manuals
- Testing and commissioning records
- Design qualification (DQ), installation qualification (IQ) and operational qualification (OQ) and performance qualification (PQ) protocols.
