Abstract

This project provides a detailed analysis of varying flow rates to prove that dead-legs in a piping system, ultimately, cannot adequately be cleaned in a pharmaceutical setting. A test station, equipped with dead-legs at varying orientations, was designed, fabricated, and tested to demonstrate insufficient cleaning of the dead-legs at a wide range of flow rates. This examination is beneficial to the industry in exploring the complications that dead-legs can pose on a system.
