Learn About Continua’s Latest Developments

IFPAC 2023 ‘A Framework for the Future: Advanced Manufacturing Quality & Innovation’ features key presentations from the Continua Process Systems team. IFPAC is the preeminent forum for insightful discussions about the latest trends and applications in the fields of Quality by Design, PAT, Quality Metrics, Continuous Manufacturing, and Process Control. Meet our experts at the following sessions.
MONDAY 6/5 | 1:05PM-5:40PM | Linden Oak Conference Room
A Black Box Integration Driver for a Waters Empower OPC UA Server & DeltaVDCS

Biopharma and pharma customers increasingly need access to on-line LC data for Critical Quality Attributes (CQA) in manufacturing. Continua and Emerson have partnered with Waters Corporation to integrate the Empower Chromatography Data System with the DeltaV™ Distributed Control System. At this session, you can see Continua’s black box driver that enables operators to access the rich functionality of Empower.

MONDAY 6/5 | 1:05PM-5:40PM | Grand Ballroom G
Real-Time Hybrid n-CSTR Models for Dynamic Processes Based on Numerical Integration for Continuous Manufacturing
In Continuous Manufacturing (CM) for Oral Solid Dosage (OSD), knowing and analyzing the concentration of raw materials within a product in real time is essential to optimizing efficiency and enabling advanced control strategies, such as inline rejection of out-of-specification material. In this presentation, we discuss a novel approach taken by Continua Process Systems that leverages a hybrid model to solve for concentrations on embedded systems in real time.

  • Bradley Stutzman, Continua, Control Systems Engineer, Co-Author
TUESDAY 6/6 | 7:50AM-12:00PM | Forest Glen Conference Room
Automated Wizard for the Integration of Process Equipment Assemblies with the Process Orchestration Layer 
It can be challenging, costly, and time-consuming to integrate Process Equipment Assemblies (PEAs) with disparate communication protocols with Process Orchestration Layers (POLs). To reduce the effort, a continuous wet granulator/dryer PEA was integrated with a POL using an automated wizard. In this session, we will describe how the automated wizard can import process tags from unit operations and map them to OPC UA tags in the POL.
