Project Description

Client: Teva Kfar-Saba Plant, of Teva Pharmaceutical Industries Ltd Group.
Application: Vacuum transfer system for powders

Teva Kfar-Saba Plant manufactures both sterile and tablet units.

The plant continuously strives to modernize and automate its processes. Several of of the plant’s production suites (clean rooms) are required to convey bulk material and powder from storage bins to the processing machines. Liranco’s goal was to provide a solution for conveying powders within closed systems (in some cases also using nitrogen), while not causing any damage to the material. In addition, the solution had to meet special pharmaceutical requirements for system cleaning (C.I.P.) and simple operation.

After surveying and understanding the plant’s needs and requirements, Liranco proposed a solution: The Powder Transfer System (PTS), manufactured by Agierre, Italy. Agierre is the ultimate supplier of systems used for these applications, and has lengthy experience in the pharma industry. Agierre offers a tailor-made system with enhanced flexibility, which supplies PTS requirements, as specified by the project manager.

Liranco and Agierre accompanied the plant closely throughout the design, installation, commissioning and operation, to the plant’s full satisfaction. The project’s success was ensured due to the personal collaboration between Agierre, Liranco and the plant engineering team, which also facilitated the adaptation of all technical improvements and necessary modifications pertaining to the future systems supplied to Teva.
