Distributing pharmaceutical water – continuously,economically and sustainably

Pharmaceutical water system chart

Water is an essential ingredient to pharmaceutical manufacturing. Once purified, non-compendial water, purified water or water for injection must be stored and distributed in systems appropriately designed, installed, commissioned and validated. Controlling the water quality in the distribution loop to ensure delivery to the point of use at the required flow and temperature can be challenging. Which is why pharmaceutical manufacturers looking for sustainable, energy-efficient solutions to deal with, or prevent, rouging, biofilm buildup or other impurities in the water distribution loop look to Alfa Laval as a trustworthy partner.
