Air Purity

As the UK’s pharmaceutical sector continues to grow, so too does the demand for large volumes of highquality compressed air for powering manufacturing processes. Air purity is essential when meeting strict hygiene regulations, designed to prevent process and product contamination. Oil-free technologies can be instrumental in delivering the required air purity, and oil-free compressors can even help deliver improved efficiencies for factory owners and operators.

Often referred to as the ‘fourth utility’, compressed air is pivotal to the pharma manufacturing industry. A reliable supply of compressed air is absolutely vital to a wide variety of applications across the pharma sector. However, because this compressed air comes into direct contact with pharmaceutical products during the manufacturing process, it is of paramount importance that it is of exceptionally high quality.

Even the smallest risk of contamination can have a serious effect on tools such as air curtains, control valves, and cylinders, as well as material handling, process air, and product drying. Such consequences can often only be resolved at significant expense, saddling pharma factory owners and operators with unnecessary costs that could impact their bottom line.
