When it comes to the pharmaceutical industry the words sterile and sanitised come to mind, and the same applies for its compressed air systems.
Any contaminants in compressed air can cause production shutdowns and potential product recalls; you can’t afford to make a mistake so only oil-free air will do.
Typical uses of compressed air in the pharmaceutical industry include:
- Product drying
- Air curtains
- Process air
- Control valves and cylinders
- Material handling
- Nitrogen generation
