Rigging & Assembly Teams Install Pharma Fill Line

riggers and millwrights, lyophilizer

R. Baker & Son was contracted by a long-time client to install a large vial fill line with a Class 100 environmental tunnel with a large lyophilizer and auto-loader system. This entailed rigging and maneuvering multiple pieces of pharmaceutical manufacturing equipment into a space and connecting them with laser accuracy. Multiple pieces of equipment were manufactured and shipped from all over the world, and eventually they would need to come together with tolerances of less than one millimeter. To ensure pinpoint accuracy, R. Baker & Son used building information modeling (BIM), vendor shop drawings, and lasers to lay out the fill line, auto-loader and lyophilizer. 

The first item to arrive was the Class 100 tunnel, which was brought into the process area and assembled by R. Baker & Son millwrights with the vendor’s assistance. After protecting it with blanketing, wood supports, and rubber pads, the tunnel assembly was hoisted 7-ft. above the finish floor and suspended from overhead steel beams using spreader bars, several chain hoists, and two forklifts. 

Baker riggers and millwrights then brought in multiple sections of the fill line. They were assembled and placed beneath the Class 100 tunnel using the laser-aligned planes to ensure complete accuracy. Once the fill line manufacturer verified that it was assembled and installed to their satisfaction, the R. Baker & Son rigging crew lowered the suspended tunnel to the fill line.

The auto-loader was brought in next. Because the fill line and auto-loader had been made by two different manufacturers, minor field modifications were required to allow the two pieces of equipment to connect properly. These modifications were performed over several days by R. Baker & Son with the assistance of the manufacturer. 

Finally, the lyophilizer system, which consisted of a large chamber that would connect to the auto-loader, a vacuum condenser, and a refrigeration skid, was brought in by the rigging team using two large forklifts, skates, several chain hoists, and a gantry. The equipment was, again, placed with complete accuracy to ensure that prefabricated piping would connect without issue. 

With R. Baker & Son’s portion of the project complete, the process mechanical, electrical and instrumentation crews came in to perform wiring, pipe installation, and prepare the equipment for startup while the room finishes were being completed during off-hours.
