Pharmaceutical manufacturers require a completely sterile environment and a continuous supply of 100% oil-free air is vital during the manufacturing process.
There must be exact compliance for specific environmental conditions such as air humidity, an important factor in ensuring product quality. Contaminated compressed air can cause disruption during manufacturing processes resulting in downtime or product recalls as well as damage to a company’s reputation. Manufacturers must use Class 0 compressed air at all times.
Application of oil-free compressed air in pharmaceutical manufacture includes everything from process air to compressed air used for mixing, sieving and filling; in filtering and grinding; coating of pills/tablets and also for the control of pneumatic valves on equipment.
