Pharmaceutical Industry Applications


Oil free compressed air can clean and remove moisture from the packaging, bottle, tubes or cans depending on the product. During the compression process the air will come into contact with the product. To prevent any risk of contamination, it is essential for the air to be 100% oil-free.

Manufacturing of Tablets

Almost every phase of the compression process includes compressed air coming into contact. Mixing and granulation, packaging, drying, coating and pressing. Class 0 air avoids contaminations to the end product.

Manufacturing ointments and creams

Before products are filled into tubes and vials they must be clean and dried to remove any dust or moisture. Oil-free air ensure there is no contamination to the end product.


Sterile air aerates a fermenter. The air must not be contaminated as bacteria will pollute the end product.

Instrumentation air 

Air is used for pneumatic conveying during the manufacturing process. Air comes into contact with the product so the air must be clean. The compressed air can also be used to control valves, sorting, polishing and more.

Wastewater Treatment

Water used during the manufacturing process must be treated first or the product could be contaminated. The water should also be treated before it is reused or released. More on wastewater treatment.
