Pharmaceutical, OSD Manufacturing

Pharmaceutical, OSD Manufacturing

Comply with the stringent health and safety requirements in pharmaceutical production while meeting mandatory quality requirements.

More and more, pharma manufacturers are looking for ways to reduce the costs associated with product manufacture yet increase safety and quality. Cleanroom air filtration and process dust collection solutions play a key role in ensuring the manufacture of high-quality pharmaceutical products while helping you increase your throughput.

 

Oral solid dosage (OSD) processes face two main challenges. For one, the generic drug market is putting pressure on manufacturing operations to become more agile and efficient. Filtration systems at these facilities have the potential to help lower operating costs by cutting energy consumption and equipment downtime and by providing filters with an extended lifetime.

 

Secondly, drugs containing high-potency compounds and active pharmaceutical ingredients (HPAPIs), like in oncology treatments, are on the rise. Their production demands enhanced operational quality and occupational safety to eliminate cross-contamination risks and to protect people and the environment. Operational flexibility also presents a challenge, requiring high quality while allowing for rapid production changeovers.

 

Different facility areas have different cleanliness requirements

Camfil provides state-of-the-art HEPA filters and specialised dust collectors for OSD processes and facilities. OSD facilities consist of different areas that each require their own air filter or dust collector to meet various needs:
