CFD simulations of processing systems
Computational Fluid Dynamics (CFD) is a simulation tool used to calculate and solve flow-related problems, such as the aerodynamics of a car, the cooling of a battery, or the combustion process inside a boiler. A CFD analysis can be highly beneficial during the design phase of any flow system by calculating full-scale problems under several operating conditions and avoiding expensive experimental tests.
Since CFD allows 3D full-scale simulations of complex geometries and physics, it is an excellent tool for design, validation and compliance of processing systems, and gives a complete overview of the product before making a physical prototype.
The purpose of this webinar is to discuss
- why use CFD in the design of processing systems?
- how do we apply CFD efficiently in this sector?
- what applications can benefit from CFD simulations?
When doing so, we will present stories/cases from the food and pharma industries where CFD simulations have made a difference.
Hygenic design with focus on EHEDG guidelines and good design processes
Update you knowledge on hygienic design of production facilities and the involved processes of qualifying designs and the subsequent qualification.
Hygienic design is crucial for proper process hygiene and the first step is to use hygienic components and the next to combine them in a hygienic manner.
The webinar will focus on the general process of assuring hygienic design of a process line and hygienic components i.e. EHEDG certified equipment and the application of the V-model as a project tool to document and qualify hygiejnic design in a process.
Introduction and trends within predictive maintenance
Many production facilities are already collecting, storing and analyzing data. With new technologies like digital twins and IoT, we get new possibilities, by utilizing new data-sources and combining monitored data with simulated data.
In this webinar, the speakers will talk about current mega-trends, on-going research and describe the current cases within the fields of Digital Twins and IoT. You will get an introduction to how new digital technologies can give new insights for optimization of production processes and predictive maintenance.
IoT-driven supply chain management in the life science industry
Supply chain monitoring and new technologies are rapidly evolving. Technological development is changing the way supply chains are monitored and controlled - thereby avoiding wastage and delays - but also creating completely new value-chains and business models.
In this webinar, targeted at the pharmaceuticals, biotechnology and medical technology industries, you will learn about some of the new technological opportunities and considerations that the IoT technology can bring to new supply chain initiatives. Focus will be on choice of IoT technology, location, data retrieval, analysis of data and tracking.
Optimise maintenance with new data-driven measurement and calibration strategies
Often, measuring equipment is not calibrated as needed, but according to the recommendation of the supplier or automatically according to industry recommended intervals. This calls for new strategies and methods of self-monitoring and data-driven preventive calibration methods that ensure optimal production processes.
In this webinar, you will get insights to new digital tools that help determine the optimum level of maintenance of measuring equipment taking into consideration safety, risk, and economy.
Optimise the pharma and biotech production process with hygienic design
Pharmaceutical and biotechnology production lines are dependent of clean and, often, sterile equipment to avoid impurities and contamination with allergenic substances. With new knowledge about hygienic design, it is possible to implement sustainable solutions that not only secure clean and sterile equipment but also reduce the risks of down-time, find savings and save resources, such as water and time.
In this webinar, you will get a brief introduction to how hygienic design can optimise the production processes in the pharma and biotech industries in both the design phase and during operations.
Towards greener medical devices
Recent trends indicate, that both the consumers and the health sector will pose higher demands for sustainable and environmentally friendly medical devices in the near future.
So how do medical device manufacturers prepare for the increasing demand for green devices?
During the webinar, you will get an introduction to:
- Eco-design and sustainable development of new medical devices
- Documenting environmental impact
- Total cost of ownership (TCO)
- Life cycle (LCA)
- Carbon Footprint
- Application of requirements for environmentally conscious design (IEC 60601-1-9 )
- Nice-to-have or necessity - from a health sector perspective
Optimisation of flue gas cleaning solutions using CFD
Flue gas cleaning units are commonly used to discharge clean air into the atmosphere and comply with environmental regulations. However, the ability of these units to function properly is highly dependent on flow distribution inside them. During this webinar, you will learn how CFD can be used to create optimal flow distribution inside flue gas cleaning units, ensuring maximum efficiency at the lowest cost.
After this webinar, you will know how CFD can help:
- Ensure optimal performance and maximum cleaning efficiency.
- Reduce system pressure drop, CapEx and OpEx.
- Solve commonly reported problems, through identification of factors that should not be overlooked.
- Provide valuable data on when/how a unit will function properly, before making expensive decisions.
The latest methods in mechanical and materials testing
Watch this webinar and get good insights into mechanical testing of products and material testing. This gives you better conditions for deciding what, why and how when you need to test your product.
Mechanical and structural testing of materials, components and systems is a specialised field used for development and validation work in various industries and disciplines. In this area, where little or no formal education is available, many of those working with testing build their knowledge using hands-on experience.
How to ensure the quality of personal protective equipment PPE and medical face masks
Get good insight on how to ensure that your purchased personal protective equipment (PPE) meets the requirements for safety and quality - and how to check whether the CE mark and documentation is correct.
Medical face masks and PPE, such as filtering face masks, must be CE marked before they can be sold on the European market - but what are the requirements for the different products? And how do you make sure that the products you purchase are actually CE marked and meet the requirements for safety and quality?
As a distributor or importer, it is your responsibility that the product you market and sell in EU meets the requirements - and that you can document this. Currently, we are seeing problems with incorrectly labeled products, fake certificates and other issues that make it difficult to see whether the product actually is what it appears to be.
IoT and digital technology
IoT for service and maintenance in supply chains
How can IoT enable transparancy across the supply chain and improve the performance of service operations?
The webinar focuses on the service and maintenance domain, investigating how IoT can be used to enable transparency across the supply chain, what are the drivers and barriers for enabling this transparency and, eventually, how this can improve the performance of service operations (i.e. increasing reactivity and enabling a predictive and proactive maintenance approach).
