46% of the world’s pharmaceutical production takes place within the United States. For the Food and Drug Administration (FDA), this amounts to a lot of work in terms of regulating an industry that plays a crucial role in the health and well-being of millions of patients. As the population grows, the industry must continually expand to accommodate the rising number of patients in need of medication each year.
In order to facilitate these developments, producers have become increasingly reliant in compressed air for everything from equipment operation to medicine production.
Air Compressor Uses for the Pharmaceutical Industry:
The production of medicine requires machinery that can make formulas and bottle them in liquid and pill form. From the mixing of ingredients to the labeling of bottles, every step must be implemented exactly as detailed in the formula for a given medicine. In order for pharmaceutical plants to recoup their costs and stay on top of market demand, it’s crucial that all the steps in each production be carried out quickly with the utmost efficiency. Most importantly of all, each medicine must be produced in an environment that’s free of germs, bacteria and contaminating oils. This can all be accomplished with an air compressor for pharmaceutical plant productions.
