MIDDAS has supplied a freestanding cleanroom facility for Howorth Air Technology's client MSD in Belgium. The cGMP cleanrooms were made to be Grades D, C & B.
Howorth Air Technology required a freestanding cleanroom for their client (MSD), for sampling pharmaceutical compounds within their proprietary isolators and sampling booths. The complete sampling facility including automated material handling, had to be built, tested and put through formal Factory Acceptance Tests before being dismantled, shipped and reassembled at MSD's premises in Belgium.
The Heist facility could not have services supported from the building, so the MIDDAS freestanding structure was ideal for this application.
MIDDAS provided a well-designed freestanding cleanroom solution to surround our key process equipment and support the MEP services
The project required a modular freestanding cleanroom to meet cGMP classifications that would support the MEP services and allow cabling to be routed through the partition panels, ensuring flush outlets in the cleanroom. This also provided flexibility for future changes throughout the lifespan of the facility, as panels can easily be removed and reconfigured. MIDDAS were selected based on its proven modular M100 bi-panel cleanroom system and freestanding structures.
"Our freestanding solution offers clients complete design flexibility throughout the lifecycle of the structure," MIDDAS stated. "Should your facility's requirements change, our system can easily be reconfigured to support alternative layouts. Changes to service routing are also simple with our completely demountable, non-progressive bi-panel partitioning. All panels can be removed individually so that cabling and pipework can easily be re-routed."
The MEP services were fully supported by the MIDDAS freestanding cleanroom structure, keeping the load off the host building. The walk-on ceiling with integrated handrail also provided safe maintenance access to the services.
"MIDDAS provided a well-designed freestanding cleanroom solution to surround our key process equipment and support the MEP services. We were pleased with the system's modular design which allowed us to fully test the assembled cleanroom sampling facility in our UK factory before dismantling and shipping it to our client's site, where it was easily reassembled and validated," said Tom Ford, Group Sales Director for Howorth.
