Cross Helps Pharmaceutical Manufacturer Improve pH Measurement Process

A pharmaceutical manufacturer located in North Carolina’s Research Triangle Park was experiencing some issues with their automated pH measurement system. The existing systems were used for monitoring pH in their critical utilities wastewater treatment area. The existing systems were obsolete and required frequent maintenance due to operational challenges and measurement inaccuracies. Those issues cost thousands in maintenance and repair time for a system that should be mostly automated.

Cross partnered with M4 Knick to offer Unical 9000 which is an engineered system that integrates Protos, SensoGate and Memosens sensor for automated and customizable measurement, cleaning, calibration and communication. The new system is more accurate and requires less maintenance.

What’s unique about this system is that it tracks calibration results and diagnostics such as sensor wear, glass impedance, operation time and sensor lifetime for predictive maintenance purposes. This data helps the user to determine the needed calibration intervals to get accurate readings without unnecessarily wasting buffer solution. In addition, because the solution is managed at the Sensogate, the hoses do not have to be flushed every time wasting additional buffer solution.

Application Note: pH Measurement System for Pharmaceutical Manufacturer 21

The new pH monitoring system has helped the customer to improve the quality of their measurement data and reduce their risk of downtime for maintenance and repairs.

Did you know… Cross Company is an ESOP (Employee Stock Ownership Plan). Our ESOP started in 1979 and as of 2006, we are 100% employee-owned! Learn more about our ESOP and how that benefits both team members and our customers.
Did you know... the precision measurement group at Cross was founded in 1939 by our current CEO's grandfather, Jim King. That's a whole lot of calibration!
Did you know... A fingerprint weighs about 50 micrograms. We know, we weighed it! The residue left from a finger can actually make a difference in weight results which is why we wear gloves when we calibrate weights. For reference, a sheet of paper is about 4.5 grams, that’s 4.5 million micrograms.
Did you know… Cross Company has grown significantly since our start in 1954. Over the years we've acquired 26 companies! Today, our five groups have expertise in everything from industrial automation to precision measurement, and industry knowledge going all the way back to 1939.
