Moisture Removal Solutions for Pharmaceuticals
Dehumidification or Moisture/ Humidity Control solutions is almost essential across all the various stages and processes of the Pharmaceutical Industry. From processing, to manufacturing, storage, research, testing, and packaging areas, all require ideal RH conditions to be maintained and hence, dehumidifiers become all the more important.
Since the majority of the pharmaceutical products are highly hygroscopic and tend to suffer physical, enzymatic, microbiological and biochemical deterioration after coming in contact with moisture – the loss of potency during storage influences the efficacy and safety of pharmaceuticals, which are some of the biggest problems faced by the sector.
The ask is to enhance productivity through environment control, efficiency in terms of time, cost, maintaining product quality, and increase in throughput levels, followed by reduced downtime.
At Bry-Air we have designed forward-looking solution that enables the manufacturers increase productivity at a low cost, higher throughput within limited resources, and reach economies of scale. Our range of best-in-class Bry-Air’s BrySmart® series (BBS) Desiccant Dehumidifier are capable of delivering upto 48% energy saving, plus an additional 20% through the customized rotor which reduces initial react energy input for equivalent performance of standard dehumidifiers.
With India as a world leader in some of the key drugs and vaccines in the global pharmaceutical market, the Current Good Manufacturing Practices (CGMPs) regulations picking pace and being enforced by FDA, the pharmaceutical industry is all the more cautious and the focus once again has shifted to manufacturing, processing, and storage of the drugs.
The use of technology, systems and equipment to prevent contamination, ensure safety and hygiene during the various stages of Pharma manufacturing is all the more paramount.
The pharmaceutical industry too is witnessing a major shift led by the current pandemic. One major highlight is the dire need of the COVID-19 rapid test kits and other such critical diagnostic test kits.
To ensure accurate test results and to protect diagnostics kits from degradation, it is imperative to control moisture during manufacturing, testing, storage and packaging of diagnostic kits. Components of diagnostic kits are highly hygroscopic. They react with moisture and get degraded rapidly, unless they are made and packaged in a dry environment.
Bry-Air dehumidifers are the ideal solution for maintaining the desired Relative Humidity (RH) in the labs where these kits are manufactured and assembled.
Another pharma sub segment having huge potential in these trying times, is the nutraceutical and health supplement market. Bry-Air has solutions which help avoid lumping, caking and agglomeration of these powders and ensure they have a longer shelf life and do not suffer any microbiological and biochemical deterioration after coming in contact with moisture.
With the API requirement growing rapidly, it is become all the more critical to ensure GMP practices are abided by and moisture is not let to causes problems like disintegration of tablets, decomposition of formulations, lumping, caking & agglomeration of chemical compounds, uneven coating on tablets, inability to compress tablets, retarded growth in organic cultures and a shorter shelf life to name just a few.
