Many processes in pharmaceutical manufacturing require tight control over humidity. Tablet coatings with aqueous solutions need precise humidity to ensure the coating does not dry too fast or too slowly.
As pharmaceutical facilities often need 24/7 environmental control, it’s important that the humidification system is designed specifically for the application. Standard heating, ventilating and air conditioning systems can rarely deliver the optimum conditions required. Due to the long operating periods, energy consumption and service requirements need to be considered.
Condair has successfully increased production output for numerous pharmaceutical manufacturers by up to 60% through working closing in coordination with the client’s research and development experts. By exploring production results at various humidities and then sustaining optimum levels indefinitely during manufacturing, reliable and environmentally friendly waste control can be achieved.
Regulations on accelerated or longterm stability testing mostly require humidity to be controlled within a tolerance of ±5%RH. If the condition of the atmosphere falls outside this window, it can result in a test having to be restarted. This is expensive and can even delay the launch of a new product.
