6.0 PERFORMANCE EXPERIMENTAL PLAN:
DESCRIPTION OF EQUIPMENT:
Bottle Washing Machine
The Rotary bottle washing machine is an continuous motion wash unit that washes new cylindrical containers, such as Bottle, unstable, conforming to specific standards operating system.
The various washing cycle combinations are:
a) Inside Raw water washing
b) Inside DM water washing
Set the bottle in a rotary for washing and set in the machine First raw water for washing to the bottle , DM water washing .
3000 bottle washed per hour .
USE OF EQUIPMENT:
The Bottle Washing Machine is designed to process pharmaceutical products in accordance with cGMP regulations and can be used for manufacturing of Liquid Orals Dosage forms.
Performance Qualification Test Plan :
1. Prerequisite activities and documentation.
2. SOP Verification.
3. Performance Test of Bottle Washing Machine.
The following documents provide confirmation that the prerequisite for commencing execution have been completed, reviewed, and approved.
Pass / Fail
Initial / Date
Test Equipment Calibration Verification
Calibration of all measuring instrument / devices.
7.3 SOP Verification
The SOPs required for operation and maintenance of this system must be verified to be effective
to include amendments deemed necessary during execution of the PQ.
8.0 PERFORMANCE EXPERIMENTAL PROCEDURE:
Performance of the equipment shall be verified by simulating the normal operation for washing by
8.1 Pre qualification of Bottle Washing Machine
8.1.1 Check the operating parameters before starting the challenge Test.
NLT 1.5 kg/cm2
Free from particulate matter
8.2 Taking samples at the different speed and different hopper level.
8.3 Performance Challenges of Bottle Washing Machine
8.3.1 Test should be performed on all pack sizes, from pack size 100 & 200 ml.
8.3.2 Cleaning is largely dependent on bottle size, water spray time, and pressure a. So each size of the Bottle will be subjected to the PQ study. Preparation of Sodium Chloride spiking Bottle
220.127.116.11 Prepare a 20% Sodium Chloride into 1000 ml Purified Water.
18.104.22.168 Take 100 bottle of 100 & 200 ml each and add 0.5 ml of 20% Sodium Chloride solution into the
22.214.171.124 Agitate to the internal surfaces wet by the solution and dry them at 600 C for overnight.
126.96.36.199 Confirm the level of Chloride contamination using method specified in USP for Sodium Chloride
188.8.131.52 Number them with permanent marker resistant to washing for identification.
8.3.3 Spike the 75 bottles of 100 ml and 200 ml each
8.3.4 Operate the Rotary bottle Washing Machine as per SOP No. .
8.3.5 The quantity of bottle to be washed is the same as normal production size to demonstrate the performance of the normal process.
8.3.6 Those 24 contaminated Bottles are divided into three groups. The first group is put at the beginning of the washing process, the second group is put in middle of the process randomly, while the third group is schedule at the end of the washing process. Each group contained eight contaminated Bottle washed on each washing channel. To ensure each washing channel will be challenged and easy to analyze in the case of failure, these contaminated testing Bottle were marked consecutively, and deliberately arranged
8.3.7 Washing cycle should be carried for 30 minutes.
8.3.8 The washed contaminated Bottle were carefully collected with gloves and placed into identified, particle-free cleaning bags as they exited the washer.
8.3.9 Collected Bottle shall be sent to the laboratory for testing.
8.3.10 Collect the random washed Bottle for any particulate contamination.
8.3.11 Note down the results of Sodium Chloride Challenge tests on Annex-II.
8.4 Repeat whole exercise for 200 ml as per 8.2.4 to 8.2.11.
8.5 Each study was challenged three times to verify the reproducibility of the machine’s performance.
9.0 ACCEPTANCE CRITERIA
Chemical Challenge Studies : Testing Bottle for the chemical decontamination study are all free of sodium chloride.
Testing Bottle for particle contamination study were all free of particles.
Schedule – M – “Good Manufacturing Practices and Requirements of Premises, Plant and Equipment for Pharmaceutical Products.”
11.0 REQULAIFICATION CRITERIA :
Performance Qualification of System to be re-qualified
• Substitution of existing equipment with new equipment.
• Any major modification in existing equipment since purchase or after the last performance qualification, which must be properly documented through a change control system.
• Adjustments made in the instruments, to correct the non-compliance of results.
• Five Years from the date of last qualification/re – qualification performed.
