Compressed Air in the Pharmaceutical Industry

Compressed air is vital and considered a utility like water and electricity in the pharmaceutical industry, specifically during manufacturing. This strictly regulated industry requires adherence to stringent guidelines. Discover the uses of compressed air, pain points and how we provide the service benefits you need.

Industry Pain Points and Symptoms

The industry occasionally experiences pain points and symptoms that require intervention from compressed air systems, such as:

  • Reduced air quality: A lack of clean, quality air in cleaning and sterilization can cause contamination. Pneumatic air compressors reduce the risk of contamination by providing pure air in these processes.

  • Equipment calibration: Uncalibrated air compressors can provide inaccurate drug dosages that may compromise the production line. 

Our services include providing the best air treatment machinery and compressors, such as screw compressors, piston compressors, oil-free compressors, air dryers and oil-water separators. We can provide the pharmaceutical industry with equipment, original compressor parts and maintenance advice offered by our CP Tech Support team.

Uses of Compressed Air in the Pharmaceutical Industry

Compressed air has numerous applications and solves many pain points in the pharmaceutical industry, including:

  • HVAC systems: Using compressed air in heating, ventilation and air conditioning (HVAC) systems helps control humidity and maintain and regulate clean air. It also controls temperature.

  • Cleaning and sterilization: Fragile equipment like vials, tubes, dryers, feeders and other apparatuses are cleaned with the highest-quality compressed air.

  • Product manufacturing and packaging: Contamination can occur during manufacturing, so pneumatically powered compressed air helps keep production line equipment clean. 

  • Instrumentation and laboratory applications: Sensitive laboratory equipment like spectrometers and chromatographs utilize compressed air for purification and control.
