Different Uses of Compressed Air in the Pharmaceutical Industry

In the pharmaceutical industry, stringent hygiene standards are observed, because it is essential that the production takes place in an environment free of any particle, bacterium and contaminating oil. Therefore, each manufacturer shall establish and maintain procedures to prevent contamination of the equipment or product with substances that could reasonably be expected to have an adverse effect on product quality.

Strict requirements are therefore applicable for compressed air also, because it frequently comes into direct contact with the product itself in the production process. Here is how the compressed air quality affects production lines:

  • Tablet Production and Coating: Compressed air is frequently used to de-dust tablets and spray on tablet coatings. Class 0 100% oil-free air ensures higher product purity and eliminates the risk of rejections and/or health risks associated with oil contamination.
  • Mixing and Holding: Compressed air is used to maintain over-pressurization on mixing and holding tanks to ensure product integrity/sterility. Class 0 100% oil-free air prevents the risk of oil contamination damaging this delicate balance.
  • Product Filling, Packaging and Bottling: Compressed air often has direct contact with the product and/or package during filling/dosing, blister packaging and bottling. Class 0 100% oil-free air prevents oil contamination from being transferred directly to the product.
  • Aseptic Applications: Whenever your application demands aseptic air, it demands Class 0 100% oil-free air. Oil contamination can prevent high efficiency particle filters from performing effectively. Class 0 100% oil-free air ensures consistently sterile air.
