I am working with a company that is updating the liquid batching. Bulk oil totes (2000 lb.) are used with a pump to deliver the liquid to a mixer. These bulk oil, 2000 lb. totes are received from suppliers that have appropriate foreign material systems in place, GFSI scheme audited, meet regulatory requirements. Risk assessment identifies low risk for f.m. / physical contamination.
Question: Can anyone provide support as to why I need to add an inline screen going from the totes to the mix operation.
Question: Is it over kill to add screen/filter for use on a tote from an approved supplier?
