The pharmaceutical industry is at the forefront of medical progress, and plays a major role in helping society fight newer health risks and diseases. 

However, manufacture of pharmaceuticals is a complex and highly regulated process (cGMP) involving bulk drug, active pharmaceutical ingredient (API) and formulation plants. It is characterised by frequent changes in the product mix resulting in fluctuating process requirements and frequent changes in the production facility. Additionally, the Industry faces many challenges like quality control, cost control, regulatory compliance, scalability, innovation and sustainability. 

Given these dynamic changes, the utility is often a bottleneck impacting the process. 

 Steam is indispensable to a wide range of plant and high-purity applications within pharmaceutical manufacturing 

  •  Heating (reactors, solvent recovery, WFI, PSG) 
  •  Cooling (VAM) 
  •  Sterilisation (autoclaves) 
  •  Drying (FBDs, RCVDs) 
  •  Conditioning of air (DHUs) 

Ensuring that thermal energy is used efficiently and effectively can help to ensure that the final product is of high quality and safe for use.
