Dehumidification in the pharmaceutical industry

Dry air even at low dew points

Dehumidification in the pharmaceutical industry

Humidity is a very critical factor

Powders, liquids, dragées and pharmaceutical packages react highly sensitive to temperature fluctuations and humidity. Only a few too many percentage points of humidity can ruin an entire batch of medicine. The solution are Trotec dehumidification systems.

In the pharmaceutical industry with its hygroscopic materials humidity is a highly critical factor. If it is not precisely controlled using dehumidification systems, in the worst case the composition of active ingredients can vary due to moisture-related changes in mass. Or else powders go lumpy and can no longer be properly processed. As experienced supplier of industrial dehumidification systems for process air conditioning and room air conditioning we have state-of-the-art solutions available for the pharmaceutical production.

 

Climate conditioning with closed dehumidification systems

Closed dehumidification and drying systems of the Trotec Group have proved their worth for the requirements in the pharmaceutical industry. Mostly, they can be subsequently installed without the need for extensive additional building measures and complement existing or replace dated air-conditioning technology.

High-performance devices with high ROI factor

The high-performance devices of the DH series and the desiccant dehumidifiers of the TTR series come with compelling advantages for process air conditioning and dehumidification. All device classes are available for all requirement specifications, many even as stainless steel version. Trotec low-temperature dryers are suited for operating ranges to -20 °C, process and product dryers to +70 °C. The ROI factor is especially high owing to the reduction of energy costs by means of additional heat recovery or process heat-assisted air heating. Moreover, the fully automatic control ensures low-maintenance operation – another key factor for economic efficiency.

Application examples for the pharmaceutical industry

  • Air conditioning industrial processes

    Concepts with stationary or mobile dehumidification are frequently used for the process air conditioning in the industry. Often drier air is required locally in machines, plants or individual operating processes – a constant supply regardless of the surrounding conditions. For this purpose, the Trotec Group provides powerful adsorption dryers for industrial customers.

  • Dehumidification when filling & packing

    The humidity level during filling and packing in the chemical and pharmaceutical production must be precisely controlled. After all, the damage would be immense should hygroscopic products go lumpy, start to stick or their shelf life decrease. Using our adsorption dryers, process air conditioning is no problem.

  • Dehumidifying & air cleaning in storages

    The Trotec Group provides different dehumidification solutions – from the condensation dehumidifiers of the DH series to the adsorption dryers of the TTR series. Both are available as mobile and stationary versions. We offer the right dehumidification technology for every depot or dispatch warehouse. Innovative measuring devices and data loggers complete the dehumidification concept for storage...

  • Drying compressed air

    The most frequent causes for a production stop are too much water vapour in the machines and installations, and corrosion inside the pipelines. Therefore, too humid compressed air should be avoided by all means. An effective option is the use of high-performance dehumidifiers. The answer to the question of how dry the compressed air has to be in order to guarantee optimum production conditions and...

  • Drying hygroscopic bulk material

    Varying and too high humidity values can ruin the pourability of powders and granules – and thus entail high consequential costs. In order for hygroscopic bulk material not to go lumpy nor to block hauling paths, the entire air in the chemical and pharmaceutical production must be pre-dried. Using adsorption dryers of the TTR series that's no problem.

  • Drying after silo cleaning

    After the cleaning of storage containers and silos you have to count on them to be fully dried for new bulk material to be protected against moisture from the beginning. And since drying can be effected in a quick and economical manner, we advise decision makers from the chemical and pharmaceutical industry to consider our high-performance dryers of the TTR series.

  • Medical practices and authorities germ and virus-free thanks to ozone

    Who doesn’t know this: In the often overcrowded waiting areas at the doctor's office or, for example, at the residents' registration office, people sit close together and it is not uncommon to be sneezed at or coughed on. But even when there is no direct interpersonal contact, they are there: pathogenic viruses, germs, bacteria and spores. Particularly in family doctor's offices, which are...

  • Germ and virus-free shopping in supermarkets, drugstores and pharmacies

    Seasonal flu epidemics, moulds and bacterial pathogens present supermarkets, pharmacies and drugstores with a number of challenges. Day after day, hundreds of hands reach for a shopping cart or basket, pick up goods for inspection and make cashless payments at the POS cash system.

  • Bacteria- and virus-free room air in medical practices

    The one who sees the doctor in times of a spreading influenza, of gastrointestinal infections or similar infectious diseases usually has to share the waiting room with sniffling, coughing or even febrile persons sitting next to him. Going to the dentist or the eye specialist also provides the same risk potential if e.g. a large part of the population is affected by an influenza epidemic. Not a...

  • Healthy and virus-free breathing air in retirement and nursing homes

    A scratchy throat, itchy eyes, irritated mucous membranes, fatigue, chapped skin – all these are typical signs that something is not right with the ambient air. This is because the blame for this often lies in an overly dry room climate. These and additional symptoms increasingly occur during the heating season in particular – as do flu-like infections and colds, which are literally spread as...
