Professional use of dehumidifiers in PHARMACEUTICALS
Pharmaceuticals, nutraceuticals in the form of powders and granules are very hygroscopic in nature.
While production of such capsules and tablets, moisture present in the air and excess humidity result in agglomeration, uneven distribution of ingredients, bacterial contamination which leads to inefficiency and downtime.
Dehumidifiers maintain ideal humidity level and a dry environment which prevents degradation, ensures safe and hygienic storage conditions and reduced rejects.
Every stage in the pharma industry right from production areas, powder rooms , packaging areas to storage rooms require moisture and humidity control to meet the high quality and production standards that have been set. High humidity leads to agglomeration and triggers growth of bacteria, mold and yeast. Leading pharma companies have adopted GMP practises of maintaining optimum humidity.
