Grinding Water System
There was no water purification system in the grinding area. Water is used to rinse, fill and clean during the grinding processes.
As a short-term solution, water was obtained from the Laboratory Millipore Water System. The sterile water was purchased from an external vendor. As a long-term solution, the required equipment for a new water purification system was purchased and installed on grinding area. Ultimate Solutions supported the equipment purchase, installation, configuration, documentation and validation.
A 12% labor cost avoidance and a $36,806 cost reduction were achieved by completing this project.
