Description of Project

Conceptual design of an oil-based liquid vitamin blending process including batch assembly, filler supply, and CIP operations. Worked with equipment manufacturers to improve equipment design and provide for a fully cleanable system that did not compromise product quality or production efficiency.


Provided process/CIP design assistance for liquid vitamin blending, and oil/water based vitamin encapsulation for both consumer and commercial markets. Conceptual design included the review of processing requirements and equipment/piping design to verify that a high degree of cleanability could be achieved. Specialized fluid bed dryers and cone dryers required careful design scrutiny to ensure that the equipment and interconnecting piping/ducts, and ancillary equipment could be successfully CIP cleaned in a timely manner.


Consumer Products


Project timeline included preliminary conceptual design through start-up and commissioning.
