5.0INSTALLATION QUALIFICATION PROCEDURE:
5.1AUTO COATER (Version Name) SYSTEM DESCRIPTION: 

Process Equipment Description

The purpose of (Company Name) Auto Coating Machine (Version Name) is to coat tablets of all common sizes and shapes whether it is for film or aqueous coating. The hot air in this equipment will enable a very efficient heat and mass transfer. The hot air flow is controlled by PLC and is programmable to accommodate various types of tablets and their coating materials.

The complete machine can be divided into the following sub-sections:

  • Inlet System
  • Pan
  • Spray System
  • PLC System
  • Cleaning system
  • Exhaust System
  • Control System

Inlet System: It consists of pre & medium air filters, HEPA filters (Optional), air heating unit, and airflow & temperature measuring devices. The inlet air handling unit (Inverter control) receives air from the environment and processes the inlet air and controls the inlet airflow.

Pan: It consists of the semi-perforated fully enclosed pan which contains 8 ducts that engage with the incoming air and the outgoing air through arc shaped inlet duct from the heat exchanger and outlet duct that goes to the exhaust. At any point in time, two circular cross-sectional areas of the pan engage with the hot air inlet and outlet.

Spray System. It consists of a peristaltic pump in case of film coating. This pump is selected based on the viscosity of the solution that has to be coated. This pump is eventually connected to the tubing that leads to high-pressure low-volume guns. The angle of the spray and the flow rate are externally controllable.

A programmable logic controller (PLC) will execute the direction of the sequence of operations. The PLC of (Brand Name) (or equivalent) is used for this purpose.

5.2 PLC Description

The main function of a PLC is to translate the instructions into the digital or analog codes needed to operate the device or machine.

Auto Coater Installation Qualification PLC Modal diagram

PLC collects data from field instrumentation & displays the information on the operator station. The instruments are connected to the system equipment and piping. The PLC will utilize the collected data for process control.

The user interface, based on an industrial-type HMI, will assist the operator to supervise and control the process. Based on the displayed information the operator, using the user interface, can provide commands to the PLC.

The PLC then executes the operator’s instructions. A (Brand Name) has been chosen as the Central Processing Unit (CPU). There are six inner boards available, which are mounted in Slot 1 or Slot 2 of a (Serial Number). The protocols are made on the XYZ – Protocol Support Software and then recorded in the Serial Communication Board, where they can be executed at any time using the PMCR instruction in the CPU unit’s ladder diagram.

The PLC system layout for the coating machine automation is as shown below: 

5.2INSTRUCTION FOR FILLING THE CHECKLIST
5.2.1In case of compliance with the test use the word ‘Complies’ otherwise use ‘Does not comply‘ to indicate non-compliance.
5.2.2For identification of the components of the equipment and utilities use the word ‘’yes’’ to show its presence and use ‘No’ to indicate the absence of the identity
5.2.3Give detailed information in the summary and conclusion part of the Installation Qualification report.
5.2.4Whichever column is blank or not used ‘NA’ shall be used.
