Photo cour-tesy of Arc Machines, Inc. Use of the BPE Standard has continued to grow to the point that virtually all new biopharmaceutical plants in the United States and many foreign countries, have been designed to, or have retroactively incorporated its requirements into their specification. End Users just expect fittings, tubing, and valves to meet the standards. In this case, the weld pool may shift favoring the low sulfur heat and lack of penetration may occur.
New Supplier Certification Program! Compendial Water Pump Seals? SBBIS designed and organized an entire facility to improve workflow and effi-ciency and to streamline pro-cedures.
Summary The last 20 years have seen dramatic improvements in fabrication technol-ogy. The specification for the use of machine or orbital GTA welding together with the development of the ASME Bioprocessing Equipment BPE Standard has resulted in cleaner, more repeatable welding of piping and components such that thousands of welds are routinely installed with very low reject rates.
Any component welded into the system is identifiable and the materials from which it was fabricated can be traced back to the mill. Installation of equipment in biopharmaceutical applications have been made more efficient by the use of skid-mounted equipment modules so that installation and fabrication can be telescoped into a shorter timescale.
Weld discoloration was shown to increase with increasing amounts of oxygen added to the ID argon purge. Consistent dimensions are important as the welding current is based on wall thickness. Equipment Installation Installation of equipment in biopharmaceutical applications have been made more efficient by the use of skid-mounted equipment modules so that installation and fabrication can be telescoped into a shorter timescale.
Continuously updated to support y p p industry accepted practices? Meets 3 times annually to: The location of the assembly is shown on the weld map with the position of each weld numbered. The BPE has also been expanded to include new sections on process instrumentation, hygienic pumps, hygienic hose assemblies and rotary spray devices.
Test coupons or sample welds are made and evaluated pior to production welding to demonstrate that the welding equipment is working properly and that the purge equipmenf satisfactory Figure 5. Developed and maintained by a balanced group of experts?
The BPE has also been expanded to include new sections on process instrumentation, hygienic pumps, bioorocessing hose assemblies and rotary spray devices. The yel-low control document travels with the part as it is fabricated. Passivation restores, at least in part elements in the passive surface layer that boprocessing disturbed by welding and the concomitant loss of corrosion resistance. Installation practices SOPs developed by installing contractors are written procedures that all welding and installation personnel must follow.

Weld coupons or test welds are routinely used for Quality Assur-ance of biopharmaceutical process piping systems. In an engineer at a biotechnology plant in San Francisco, California was preparing to install some process equipment and recognized that the welds on the equipment were of insufficient quality to meet the stringent hygienic requirements necessary for growing cells in culture.
OE Group 6 group. Welds at that time were often discolored due to poor inert gas purging.
The most extensive revision to date! Limits on inside diameter ID and outside diameter OD concavity and misalignment are set to promote drainability and cleanability of weld surfaces.

Since the amount of discoloration has been shown to correspond to a loss in corrosion resistance, and the products of corrosion can result in con-tamination of the system, this is not just a cosmetic issue. An example of how a manufac-turer of bioprocessing equip-ment optimized their production, Sartorius BBI Sys-tems, Inc. The BPE Standard applies only new construction and only to those systems and components that are in direct or indirect contact with the product.
Welding documentation includes docu-ments certifying the welding procedures and welding personnel to ASME Sect. Field welds in hygienic piping systems are typically left in the as-welded con-dition; the only post weld treatment being chemical passivation with nitric or citric acid solutions following installation.
New resource material will be provided on electropolishing, passivation, elastomer performance, metallic materials of construction, polymer surface finishes, corrosion testing and stainless steel rouge. Equipent to the introduction of the BPE, piping and component materials in biopharmaceutical applications could be or or L or L stainless steel. The BPE Standard is a consensus standard with work done by volunteers.
