About our services
Oil free compressed air is used to clean and remove moisture from the packaging, bottle, tubes or cans, depending on the product. During this process the air comes into contact with the product, so the air must be Class 0 oil-free air to prevent the risk of contamination.
Manufacturing of tablets & capsules
Compressed air comes into contact during almost every phase of the process. Mixing and granulation, drying, pressing, coating and packaging. Air must be CLASS 0 to avoid contamination.
Manufacturing of ointments, creams, gels and syrups
Tubes, vials, etc. have to be cleaned and dried before they are filled with their product in order to remove any moisture or dust. Providing oil-free air makes sure that the end-product will not be contaminated.
Sterile air aerates a fermenter. The air cannot be contaminated, or the bacteria will be polluted and consequently the end product will not be of high quality.
Air is used for pneumatic conveying during the manufacturing process, this means it comes into contact with the product so the air must be clean. During the rest of the process compressed air is also used to control valves, sorting, polishing and more.
The water that is used during the manufacturing process has to be treated first or it could contaminate the product. After using the water it has to be treated too before it can be reused or released. More on wastewater treatment
