Businesses around the world dealing in pharmaceuticals or other industries where the facilities are required to have concentrated pressure, for a long period of time has often come across challenges maintaining the prospect of pressure. One of the biggest issues with this has been the underlying approach of Lyophilization. Lyophilization or freeze drying is a process in which water is removed from a product after it is frozen and placed under a vacuum, allowing the ice to change directly from solid to vapor without passing through a liquid phase. It has unique advantage of simplifying the aseptic handling of liquid. It enhances the stability of dry powder by removing water without excessively heating the product. Of course, there are some disadvantages as well, like increased handling and processing time, cost and complexity of equipment to name a few. A leading pharmaceutical manufacturing plant had a well- established lyophilization process but one of the audit requirements was to record and log the temperature and pressure data of the lyophilization process. Since the equipment was on wheel and movable, it was very difficult to have the fixed installation data loggers. They further wanted to record these data on a centralized server so that user can see these data from any client computer. One more question came up during the discussion was about the potential loss of data in case of communication failure. Eventually it was decided that a wireless pressure and temperature data logger with memory will be most suitable.
However, most of the data loggers with communication are having RS485 port. Since it requires a specialized wiring, it was instantly rejected. Most of the data logger does not have the memory also. It was amidst this confusion that Gtek came up with a ground breaking solution to aid the process. Let’s take a look at the solution Gtek came up with.
Gtek Solution to Pressure Logger Challenge
Gtek introduced the RF wireless data logger. These data logger has an internal memory to store the data. They communicate with the access point like device broker. They in turn are connected to server through TCP/IP. Broker also has an internal memory. So, in case of communication failure or power failure server side application can automatically recover the data from either broker or from the device. It guarantees the data availability. G-Tek’s software gtekNet is client-server based software that captures the data from all G-Tek’s networked connected devices and based on the user roles and responsibility; it allows / restricts the access. It also has facility to send SMS, email and auto generate reports. It also has a 21CFRPart II compliant.
So what is RF Wireless Pressure Data Logger?
RF wireless pressure logger also goes by the name LM-P-PRO Series Differential Pressure Indicator / Data logger is a device introduced by Gtek targeting businesses that comes across regular challenges in maintaining and recording pressure related information of their organization at facilities where maintenance of pressure is key to define success of their business. The LM-P-PRO series of differential pressure data logger useful in monitoring differential pressure especially for clean rooms. Large 0.56” LED digital display eliminates the human error in reading the data. The device is field programmable for most common of the eight measuring units. The decimal point gets selected automatically for displaying with best resolution. It also comes with a feature to set the high and low alarm limit. Whenever the limit is crossed, appropriate LED indicates the alarm condition. It also has a display that starts blinking, for better attention. This ensures that LM-P-PRO or RF wireless pressure data logger is an ideal solution for measuring pressure at facilities where they are required.
How the Wireless Pressure Data Logger Functions
The functioning of the LM-P-PRO showcases programming facility of different parameters like calibration between 0 – span, unit, limits, alarm, communication and more. This allows all the individual parameters to be set through 4 keys. The data logger usually scans the entry of pressure within the facility or place where it is needed every second to allow the organization stay updated on pressure requirement at every moment. Further LM-P-PRO has RS485 2/4 wire communication port to connect to any SCADA using MODBUS RTU/ASCII protocol. This allows user to get hold of the current data and device identification information over protocol. Allowing the data requirement to be monitored in detailed. Further the LM-P-PRO also has an optional memory to store the data. This makes it possible for the device to store the data at an interval between 1 second to 18 hours interval. This stored data can only be retrieved the user or organization through our web- based data acquisition software gtekNetTM. This makes it also possible for organizations using the LM-P-PRO device to configure the entire device from this software. gtekNetTM enabling the users to see, the modifications, while generating a report with 21CFRPart 11 compliance using any standard browser from anywhere over network connected device. This functioning ensures that the organization and its users are thoroughly aware about the pressure related scenario that is important for their organizational success.
Features of Pressure Data Logger
The pressure data logger LM-P-PRO introduced by Gtek showcases the following major features that help in thorough organizational control:
- Pressure Identification: Differential Pressure
- Units of Pressure measurement: Pascal, KPA, mBar, mmWC, inWC, mmHg, InHg, and PSI
