Protect Processes from Particles Using Filters

Posted by Critical Process Filtration Marketing on Mar 13, 2018 8:00:00 AM

Particles enter systems from any number of sources. Water used for everything from parts washing to an ingredient for drugs arrives at a facility carrying particles. Liquid ingredients can have particles when they are delivered to a facility or process. The plant environment contains dust and other floating particles.

Production processes themselves can generate particles, and not just from the normal wear and tear of system

Point-of-Use Filters and Bacteria Control in Pharmaceutical Water Systems

Posted by Critical Process Filtration Marketing on Feb 27, 2018 8:00:00 AM

WHAT FILTERS SHOULD I USE TO ASSURE THAT MY PHARMACEUTICAL WATER IS SAFE?

The goal of pharmaceutical water system operators is to produce bacteria-free water that meets or exceeds required purity standards. Water systems designed to reach those goals use many filters to protect system components (as covered in previous blog posts). Filters can also be used to assure that the water dispensed for use is free of bacteria and most other particle contaminants.

Vent Filters - Protecting Pharmaceutical Water Quality

Posted by Critical Process Filtration Marketing on Jan 30, 2018 8:00:00 AM

HOW DO I KEEP CONTAMINANTS OUT OF MY WATER STORAGE TANKS?

Most of the time, the old saying, “An ounce of prevention is worth a pound of cure” is true. Preventing an unwanted event is usually easier than doing remediation work to repair whatever damage is done if the event occurs. However, in virtually all water systems, including pharmaceutical water systems, it is safe to assume that BOTH prevention and remediation are needed to control bacteria and other contaminants.

For pharmaceutical water systems, prevention means not allowing bacteria to enter a system. Tank vent filters are an important part of the prevention process.

Using Filters to Protect Pharmaceutical Water System Efficiency

Posted by Critical Process Filtration Marketing on Jan 23, 2018 8:00:00 AM

WHAT FILTERS SHOULD I USE TO KEEP MY PHARMACEUTICAL WATER SYSTEM RUNNING SMOOTHLY?

The goal of pharmaceutical water system operators is to produce water that meets or exceeds required purity standards and is bacteria-free. There are several treatment steps in water systems to reach those goals, and filters are used to assure that each of those treatment steps operates as efficiently as possible.

SUCCESS - Removing Heat Resistant Mold

Posted by Critical Process Filtration Marketing on Jan 16, 2018 7:00:00 AM

SOLVING REAL-WORLD FILTRATION CHALLENGES

Our Technical Service Team will help customers develop new filtration processes when a new filter challenge arises, or new product manufacturing systems are being developed.

The team can perform a variety of tests, though most are routine analyses of the particle content of the liquid and "filterability" tests to estiate the life of the filters used in a new system.

An example of new process development happened when a beverage manufacturer changed an ingredient and found a new filtration challenge.
