Single Use Facilities: Two Floors vs Three

Single Use Facilities: Two Floors vs Three

03/22/2017, 3:15 PM - 4:00 PM

INTERPHEX Innovation Stage


Single use facilities have become a way of the future in many instances. Many single use facilities are being design in a single floor concept or even as a two floor concept with the utilities in the basement and the process and support functions on the first floor. An alternative approach is to place all support functions on the second floor (third level), Process core operations on the 1st floor (second level) and the utility support on the basement floor (first level). Many facilities have the common adjacencies in common and the design benefit can be simplified to Operational Benefits. We will review the Two floor vs. Three floor benefits and detriments while reviewing the containment and set up challenges, transfer length limits, process volume limits and transfer rate limits. A cross over comparison of continuous use vs. batch production limits will be reviewed and the ideal platform for productivity and flexibility will be presented.
