Humidification for Pharmaceutical Industry


Tablets, pills, ampules, ointments, creams, and gels are all intended to make us feel better. They must therefore not be contaminated by dirt, germs, or spores. At the same time, the raw materials for drugs require certain ambient conditions in order to retain their efficacy and consistency.

Many drugs are already manufactured in clean room conditions today. However, even where the conditions are not so strict, the following still applies: A consistent temperature and constant relative humidity are required to ensure that the end products remain at the same high quality.

As hot steam humidifies the air, it kills off bacteria and germs almost as a side effect. Adiabatic systems with corresponding hygiene concepts also ensure odorless, sterile humidification. Precise controllability keeps the moisture content of the air constant in all cases.
