Do basic materials meet FDA/USDA requirements?
Will materials “out-gas or transmute” under
anticipated operating or sanitizing environments?
Are mechanical structures, frames and assemblies
within the intent of NSF/FDA/USDA guidelines?
Is the system free of cracks and crevices to
preclude product accumulation and subsequent biological breakdown or
cross contamination of product lines?
Can entire acoustical system be readily inspected
Can entire acoustical system components be easily
Will acoustical systems allow positive drainage
to grade level after wash down?
Is facility and system interface spaced for
cleanliness or occlusively sealed?
Has acoustical structure been designed to enhance
internal aspiration and minimize aerostatics?
Does thermal gradient of selected structure
inhibit internal condensation and secondary contamination?
Can quality of process be enhanced by creating a
controlled microcosm around equipment?
Will acoustic system maintain sterility and
integrity over time and numerous sanitation cycles?
