Why Humidify... For Pharmaceutical Manufacturing


Many processes in pharmaceutical manufacturing require tight control over humidity. Tablet coatings with aqueous solutions need precise humidity to ensure the coating does not dry too fast or too slowly.

Many processes in pharmaceutical manufacturing require tight control over humidity. Tablet coatings with aqueous solutions need precise humidity to ensure the coating does not dry too fast or too slowly.

Printing with water based inks can be adversely affected by dry air. Low humidity causes an increase in static, which in turn can cause materials to stick to each other causing problems with packing.

Correct humidity levels can lead to increased manufacturing yields, decreased waste and a more efficient production line.

As pharmaceutical facilities often need 24/7 environmental control, it’s important that the humidification system is designed specifically for the application. Standard heating, ventilating and air conditioning systems can rarely deliver the optimum conditions required. Due to the long operating periods, energy consumption and service requirements need to be considered. 

Nortec has successfully increased production output for numerous pharmaceutical manufacturers by up to 60% through working closing in coordination with the client’s research and development experts. By exploring production results at various humidities and then sustaining optimum levels indefinitely during manufacturing, reliable and environmentally friendly waste control can be achieved.
