Water is an essential ingredient to pharmaceutical manufacturing. Once purified, non-compendial water, purified water or water for injection must be stored and distributed in systems appropriately designed, installed, commissioned and validated. Choose an Alfa Laval hygienic equipment below in the process chart for full information on our solutions for pharmaceutical water systems.
Reliable and energy-efficient, this high-performance pump operates continuously to prevent stagnation and subsequent contamination in pharmaceutical water distribution loops. The Alfa Laval LKH pump maximizes process efficiency, uptime and product quality. Ideal for use in standard pharmaceutical water systems, such as for the distribution of non-compendial or purified water. The hygienic design is seen in the external shaft seals for safe and easy leak detection as well as the open impeller facilitating high flow on the back of the impeller to avoid bacteria build up.
Highly efficient and reliable, this centrifugal pump with its advanced hygienic design optimizes high purity water system processes, such as for the distribution of purified water or water for injection. The Alfa Laval LKH UltraPure pump provides repeatable, contamination-free performance. Moreover, it is easy to clean thereby offering validated low life-cycle production. Various options, such as a special flushing kit and long lasting shaft seal specially designed for the water-for-injection distribution loop, makes it easy to meet industry requirements.
Highly suitable for the demands of pharmaceutical water systems, this compact, lightweight diaphragm valve is modular in design, which enables a wide range of purpose-built configurations. It consistently delivers documented, reliable and contaminant-free performance due to specified sulphur content that contributes to superior weld quality and high-quality valve bodies with low delta-ferrite.
The Alfa Laval Safety Valve protects water distribution tanks and pipelines against overpressure that may arise from unexpected operating conditions. This maximizes uptime, safeguards operation as well as system operators, and guarantees trouble-free, hygienic operation of pharmaceutical water systems.
For uncompromising quality that matches the exact requirements of your pharmaceutical water systems, choose Alfa Laval UltraPure bends, tees, reducers, clamps and connections. Alfa Laval ASME BPE certified tubes and fittings ensure problem-free welding and assembly, maximum uptime and optimal product quality. 100% incoming and outgoing inspection of materials, dimensions, marking, packing and labeling. With a proven 90-year track record as a major pharmaceutical supplier, we guarantee safe and easy installation.
Ideal for point-of-use cooling, this compact heat exchanger features a unique tube-in-tube design, no internal welds, and full drainability on the product side. Designed to remain sanitized even when not in use (standby mode), it also promotes high shear force, high turbulence and optimal heat transfer efficiency. Its low hold-up volume and quick heat exchanger response mean cold water is available within seconds, minimizing water waste.
Designed to meet the demands of pharmaceutical water systems, this high-quality shell-and-tube heat exchanger functions both as a heater and a cooler. In addition to the usual heat exchangers features that prevent contamination, the Alfa Laval Pharma-line is noteworthy for its hygienic design with double tube sheet for leak detection.
A great choice for the holding tank in a pharmaceutical water distribution loop, the Alfa Laval Sani SB Rotary Spray Head provides uniform wetting of the tank wall to prevent destruction or degradation of the passive layer and erosion of iron in the nozzles, minimizing the risk of rouge. Running on a water film, there are no bearings and few moving parts. This allows for quick and easy commissioning, validation and increases service life.
Highly accurate and hygienically designed, this device measures the conductivity and temperature of pharmaceutical water systems. These measurements are recognized among the best means to assure ionic impurity control in pharmaceutical water systems.
Suitable for use in pharmaceutical water systems, this hygienic level switch provides accurate and reliable remote water level indication in the holding tank.
A high-precision pressure measurement device indicates the pressure in pharmaceutical water systems.
This compact, hygienic measuring device provides an accurate indication of process temperature in pharmaceutical water systems.
