Sludge screening technology by CDEnviro provides operational efficiencies for pharmaceutical sector

Leading waste reduction and recycling equipment manufacturer, CDEnviro, has successfully delivered a variety of sludge screening technologies throughout the UK pharmaceutical industry by providing technology for the efficient separation of solid waste material from liquids.

Since the launch of the S:MAX CDEnviro has led the way in redefining waste management for a variety of industries. This has been achieved by improving the efficiency of operations through the minimisation of waste and maximising the opportunity for material reuse.

The S:MAX leads the industry in the removal of rag from sludge - either imported or indigenous and removes the requirement for holding tanks or buffering while requiring a minimum level of operator intervention making the system easy to operate and maintain.

For pharmaceutical companies in particular, the S:MAX technology effectively provides them with a reduction in the waste materials being sent the centrifuge and also in turn prolongs the life of centrifuges due to the sometimes harsh nature of the waste material.

This wet screening technology from CDEnviro has also aided pharmaceutical companies in completely avoiding blocked pumpsets as it eradicates the need for them to pump hard material within their pipeworks. This feature in itself has generated a substantial level of cost savings for companies by not having to replace pipework and internals of pumpsets in the future and also protects decanters.

Matt Bunting, CDEnviro General Manager comments, 'Pharmaceutical waste disposal and management affects more than just the bottom line--it also has real implications for the environment, consumers and employees. With increasing scrutiny from regulatory agencies, every facility that disposes of pharmaceutical waste must meet strict handling and disposal mandates and this is where our wet screening technology ticks all of the boxes.

The S:MAX technology allows our clients to be environmental leaders over and above legal compliance and this in turn has proven to have a positive impact on their brand and their public perception in an industry which is tightly regulated'.

Given the potential hazards pharmaceutical waste can possess, the S:MAX range is the ideal solution for waste material of this nature . The S:MAX not only deals with substantial volumes

of material but also incorporates features that accommodate odour control and can withstand harsh material. Additionally, given the scale in which pharmaceutical companies operate in, the sludge screening technology from CDEnviro allows for processes to be streamlined and efficiencies to be maintained at all stages in the waste management process. Imperatively, this has allowed the companies in question to compete on a global stage.
Matt Bunting continues ' With the pharmaceutical industry in particular, we have a number of prerequisites to meet and attention to detail is imperative during the design and installation process to ensure that we not only deliver a system that meets and exceeds client expectations, but systems which are legally compliant with industry red tape. Our pharmaceutical clients are enjoying the benefits of CDEnviro technology through optimum levels of productivity and we're delighted to be associated with a number of global leaders through solutions that simplifies their processes'.
