Due to the COVID-19 pandemic the Biomedical Advanced Research and Development Authority (BARDA) and contract development and manufacturing organization (CDMO) network were created. Our customer was approved to join and manufacture COVID vaccines and needed to start production quickly. They requested an automated system to control vapors from their process units.
Envent’s engineers modified a thermal oxidizer to automatically regulate the inlet valve position and record temperature. An alarm cell phone and signal to the control room were also added in case of any shutdowns. Envent’s supervisors and engineers were present for set up, safety meetings, and operator training.
Envent’s custom engineered solution allowed our customer to safely manufacture the COVID-19 vaccine. The automation Envent engineered saved the customer hundreds of thousands of dollars in manpower. Additionally, Envent was able to mobilize and be fully operational within ten days.
