Sodium hydroxide is a widely accepted cleaning and sanitizing agent for bioprocessing equipment and chromatography media. It is also used for pH adjustment in many processes. Sodium hydroxide is not only very effective but is also affordable and easy to detect using pH and conductivity measurements to ensure it has been removed. Dilute caustic solutions are recommended as short-term equipment storage solutions to prevent bacterial growth.
YMC’s EcoPrime Caustic Dilution systems are designed to perform highly controlled caustic dilution processes to generate ready-to-use solutions when needed, reducing tank requirements, lowering the cost associated with handling large volumes, and enhancing scheduling flexibility.
Our systems use proprietary digitally controlled metering pumps that deliver precise and accurate volumes across a wide range of solution densities, enabling dilution of concentrated caustic solutions. Systems also include sensors to monitor the dilution process and an optional heat exchanger and break tanks to manage excess heat. System software and automation enable the user to configure and run recipes that precisely prepare diluted, ready-to-use caustic solutions.
The EcoPrime Caustic Dilution system:
As with all YMC bio/pharmaceutical equipment, the EcoPrime Caustic Dilution system is designed to meet high-quality expectations. The system is manufactured using materials compatible with long-term caustic exposure. The design and construction of the equipment ensure a safe, ergonomic system suitable for use in GMP manufacturing environments.
