Gerald Cerulli, PE

Sr. Process Engineer


"Potent Compounds require special attention to details. IPS has a proven track record in the design of these facilities. I look forward to discussing client needs."

Gerald has over 30 years of experience with batch and continuous process engineering. He is recognized as an expert/consultant in the best practices for the containment of potent compounds, Clean-in-Place (CIP) and has extensive experience with batch hydrogenation facilities and solvent processing. Gerald is experienced in providing flexible/adaptable batch processing solutions to clients' problems. He also has extensive knowledge of contamination control strategies (airflow and barrier technology) and CIP approaches for bulk chemical production. Jerry has worked on several major projects throughout the United States and Asia, and has managed a group of over twenty-five professionals from various backgrounds.
