RECENT PROJECTS

AUTOMATION OF A BEVERAGE FACILITY

While Laporte Consultants designed the process, Teknema provided a turnkey automation solution for the facility.

 

Teknema designed cost-effective control panels for valve systems, sensors and communication as well as power panels for agitators & pumps. Functional description, programming, process simulation, startup was also successfully executed in a flexible manner to allow manufacturing & automation startup activities to be conducted simultaneously.

A recipe manager allows the client to configure the system for full manufacturing & cleaning (CIP) of the installations.

Project direct cost : $120k

PHARMACEUTICAL ENVRIONMENTAL
MONITORING SYSTEM

An established pharmaceutical client needed a customized clean room monitoring system to insure compliance to established operating parameters such as room pressurization, temperature and humidity.  The system is required to ensure product processing parameters stays within an acceptable range.

 

The system needed to be distributed throughout the facility. Furthermore, compliance to latest edition of Health Canada and FDA regulations was critical.

Teknema developed a robust, expandable and flexible solution to ensure these conditions were actively monitored, that alarms were sent to mobile devices, that data would be stored adequately and that the system was fully validated.

The team designed the system, panels, interface and performed the commissionning and validation activities.

Project direct cost: $200k

1/5
CONSTRUCTION OF A BEVERAGE FACTORY

In this ambitious project, Teknema led construction of a building extension allowing the client to quadruple monthly production. 

This building extension allowed for new beverage processing equipment installation, fully automated high speed packaging line, offices and required technical spaces.

Teknema managed the project schedule, construction budget, established and enforced health and safety policy on site, and coordinated all trades on site.

Direct project cost: $8M

CHILLED WATER CAPACITY INCREASE

Need to modify your building utilities? 

For this project, Teknema surveyed the existingchilled water system, determined the required capacity increase, performed the detailed engineering, purchased the equipment, coordinated and supervised the installation, and performed system startup.

This turnkey capacity increase on an important plant utility was straight forward for the client and had a single point of contact for the complete duration of the project: Teknema

Project direct cost: $600k

SUGAR SILO AUTOMATION

Raw ingredient quality is critical in the food and beverage industry. 

An existing system required modifications to control temperature and humidity of stored sugar as well as optimize the dosing and conveying systems.

Teknema tackled the situation with efficiency in this electrically classified hazardous environment.

Panel design, component procurement and PLC/HMI code was written and tested prior to the shutdown. When the manufacturing activities were paused, our team jumped in to perform the modification and on-site testing in less time than estimated, resulting in a happy client and optimized system.

Project direct cost: $50k

MOBILE MANUFACTURING VESSEL

Teknema completed a mobile manufacturing vessel in the pharmaceutical industry.

 

This triple-agitation tank is fully automated to control all the critical process parameters, such as temperature, pressure and agitation speed. The control system has been designed and validated as per 21 CFR Part 11.

 

This tank is CIPable and has been integrated to an existing COP skid.

 

Project Direct Cost : 0.6 M$
