When it comes to the pharmaceutical industry the words sterile and sanitised come to mind, and the same applies for its compressed air systems.

Any contaminants in compressed air can cause production shutdowns and potential product recalls; you can’t afford to make a mistake so only oil-free air will do.

Typical uses of compressed air in the pharmaceutical industry include:
  • Product drying
  • Air curtains
  • Process air
  • Control valves and cylinders
  • Material handling
  • Nitrogen generation
Air Quality

If the compressed air system has not been designed for your industry specific requirements, it has potential to cause major problems including spoiled products and unplanned downtime. We offer advice about your current compressed air system and provide solutions to achieve the quality you require.

Compressed Air Quality Testing

Oil Free Air

Air purity is critical for many applications where even the smallest drop of oil can cause product spoilage or damage the production equipment, resulting in potential unplanned downtime. Oil-free compressors aid in moving fine chemicals, creating clean work areas, drying products and recovering solvents involved in various pharmaceutical processes.

Nitrogen Generation

Nitrogen offers a reliable packaging medium and additional fire suppression if you’re working in a volatile production environment. Onsite nitrogen generators provide the reliable nitrogen-rich air to keep your processes safe and in good quality.
