This recovered heat can be employed for heating your facilities or integrated into the manufacturing process.

Uses of compressed air in the pharmaceutical industry

Bottling, canning and packaging: Compressed air is used to clean and remove moisture from containers, bottles, tubes or cans, depending on the product. During this process, air comes into contact with the product, so the air must be clean enough to avoid the risk of contamination.

Manufacture of tablets and capsules: Compressed air comes into contact during almost all phases of the process. Mixing and granulation, drying, pressing, coating and packaging. The air must be adequately filtered to remove any potential oil contamination from the compressed air.

Manufacturing: Manufacture of ointments, creams, gels and syrups, tubes, vials, etc. have to be cleaned and dried before being filled with your product to remove any moisture or dust. Providing clean air ensures that the final product is not contaminated.

Fermentation: Sterile air aerates a fermenter. The air cannot be contaminated, or the bacteria will be contaminated and therefore the final product will not be of high quality.

Instrumentation air: Air is used for pneumatic conveying during the manufacturing process, this means that it comes into contact with the product, for which it must be clean air. During the rest of the process, compressed air is also used to control valves, sorting, polishing and more.
