P•E•T Process Equipment Tracking®


PET Process Equipment Tracking
Process Equipment TrackingP•E•T Process Equipment Tracking® offers a new degree of safety and reduced risk for the pharmaceutical processing industry, as well as other high purity applications in the food and beverage, cosmetic, chemical, and biomedical sectors. Using RFID (radio frequency identification) technology, all process equipment involved with a particular batch of product is monitored from start to finish. Track usage and cleaning cycles to ensure timely maintenance and replacement . . . before parts begin to fail, risk product integrity, and waste time and labor. Briefly stated, you can track who did what to each batch and when. It's a logical approach to tracking all critical process components.

The RFID tag is attached to each device and encoded with a unique serial number. Several attachment methods are available and include a molded pouch, lamination, stainless steel strap, silicone fusible tape, complete silicone encasement, etc. Many of these methods allow tag attachment to process equipment currently installed in facilities. Tag encoding can be customized to meet specific needs.   The handheld reader/ writer identifies each device by its serial number for reference in a database. The reader/ writer logs and tracks ongoing wear-related events such as the number of cleaning cycles and dates performed (CIP, SIP, autoclave), and the number of batches of material processed. Data is programmed back onto the RFID tag and later downloaded to a database for analysis.   Specific data is transferred to a local computer using the Lifecycle Analysis Tool (software) to catalog process equipment, maintain wear-related events, and store application data associated to a particular location. Personnel can perform lifecycle analysis for individual locations for an accurate, application specific replacement schedule prior to excessive degradation or failure.



A wide variety of process components exist in various shapes and sizes creating a need for different attachment methods. The AdvantaPure engineers are up to the challenge of attaching RFID tags to your components and are ready to work with you to design something that fits your specific requirements.

Our development of the Hose Track System has given us extensive experience with hose attachment methods. For example:
HOSE TRACK RFID tag fusible silicone tape to attach RFID tag to existing hoses gammatag on tubing
...silicone injection molded to the O.D. of a hose assembly ...wrapped silicone fusible tape for use with existing hoses ...plastic tie-wrap for use with existing hoses

Using a diaphragm valve as an example, different means could be employed to place an RFID tag onto the component such as:
...a plastic pouch and wire tie ...integrated into bonnet design

Many more applications exist and other solutions can be further developed. What works for you?
rfid tag on biobag
...a tag holder could be attached to a filter housing using a stainless steel strap ...a pouch can be affixed to the exterior of a biobag ...a mounting block could be fastened to the exterior of a mixing vessel
