Manufacturing

The production block is a three floored building with a floor space of 40,000 sq ft. and hosts fermenters, downstream equipments, control rooms, laboratories and cold storage facility. The production facility is segregated into flame proof and non-flameproof zones separated by a solid concrete blast proof wall. Any process operation requiring the use of solvent is carried out in flameproof zone. The movement of personnel across flame proof and non-flame proof zones is facilitated through fire safe doors steel doors with fire safe rating.

The fermentation set up consists of seed fermenters of various sizes, production fermenters, dosing vessels and harvest vessels. The fermenters and ancillary vessels have been designed and fabricated as per ASME Sec VIII Div 1 2001 and ASME BPE 2005 codes. Important parameters like temperature, pH, dissolved oxygen in fermenters and ancillary vessels are monitored and controlled through Distributed Control System.

The downsteam consist of a series of equipment for harvesting product obtained from different fermentation cultures like fungal, bacterial etc. Membrane Filtration System, Decanter Centrifuge, Freeze Dryer, Tray Dryer, Nutsche Filter, Basket Centrifuge and series of stainless steel reactors of various capacities with distillation column and condensers are the key equipments in downstream.

Preservation, selection and growth of biological strains used in production fermenter is carried out in dedicated microbiology lab by qualified microbiologist. The lab is equipped with laminar flow cubicle, incubator shakers, deep freezers, centrifuges etc. In process sample analysis for testing the cell growth rate, contamination, consumption of fermentation ingredient, preparation of sample for checking fermentation productivity etc is done in dedicated in-process analysis lab.

Analysis of the product samples for productivity, certification of final product etc are carried out in analytical laboratory. The analytical lab is equipped with equipment like High Pressure Liquid Chromatography, Gas Chromatography, Spectrophotometers, Muffle Furnace, Hot Air Oven etc.
