Tetra Pak CPS Takes Care to Meet Challenging Deadline
27th September 2010
The UK’s leading provider of quality hygienic process equipment and turnkey systems, Tetra Pak CPS, has supplied McBride’s Personal Care Products with additional hygienic mixing and cleaning equipment, in just two months.
Renowned for its flexibility, reliability and cost effective solutions, Tetra Pak CPS adopted a straightforward, no nonsense approach, to ensure that this project was completed within a remarkable timescale.
Installed at the McBride processing facility in Bradford, the new equipment allows for mixing of oils and transferring to a filler as well as a compact mobile CIP (Clean in Place) unit for cleaning various pieces of customer equipment.
The CIP unit comprises of a 200 litre holding vessel with delivery and scavenge pumps. Heating of the media is by in-line electrical immersion heaters and the controls provide simple pushbutton operation with automatic temperature control to a preset level.
The highly skilled team of Tetra Pak CPS engineers pre-fabricated all of the equipment at the company’s world class manufacturing facility in Sherborne, Dorset before transferring to the site to ensure minimal disruption, which was particularly important as McBride were carrying out other works at the same time to facilitate the installed plant.
Tetra Pak CPS also interacted with McBride’s other suppliers to ensure an integrated approach to the project. With the different parties involved and minimal available site time it was imperative that there was a collaborative approach to ensure the smooth running of the project.
Tetra Pak CPS engineering and fabrication standards were perfectly matched to the high demands of this blue chip customer, which was critical in ensuring a “right first time” approach. The installation has enabled McBride to upgrade its processing facility and reduce the level of operator input required.
Commenting on the project, McBride’s Project Manager, Paul Whiting said: “McBride chose Tetra Pak CPS because of their fast response time and ability to provide a complete solution to the highest quality - from vessel manufacture through to complete skids. That choice proved to be the correct one with the equipment being installed without a hitch and in double quick time.”
