Rouging of stainless steel is the result of the formation of a layer of iron oxide, hydroxide or carbonate on the surface of the stainless steel. It is a thin layer with reddish-brown, yellow or black tones, and it can indicate a de-stabilization in the naturally occurring passive layer of stain-less steel. Some forms of rouging can wipe of easily while others can stick to surfaces and, if left untreated, can cause product contamination.
Pharmaceutical and Bio-pharmaceutical Processing is subject to very high standards of hygiene and sanitation, so choosing the right materials for the fabrication of processing equipment is of vital importance. The industry is heavily regulated and manufacturing materials must pass rigorous standards so as not to alter or compromise the purity of the products being manufactured.
The Factory Acceptance Test Centre at Adam Fabriwerk ensures that all systems are tested in place before dispatch to our clients. Join us for a walkthrough of the FAT Centre at Nashik, where we demonstrate how processing systems are made and tested.
When considering the manufacture of Pharmaceuticals and Therapeutics, viscosity is a key factor and must be precisely managed. The viscosity of liquid and semi-solid preparations has to be maintained batch-to-batch to ensure uniform drug potency through all stages of production. Testing the viscosity is a very important practice by quality control in the pharmaceutical manufacturing industry.
Adam Fabriwerk uses radar level measure technology from Vega to measure level changes in hygienically demanding process vessels for Pharmaceuticals and Bio-Pharmaceuticals. In their article "A Clean Switch" Vega highlights the benefits of VEGAPULS 64 for reliable and continuous monitoring of levels in mixing vessels.
Surface Finish is incredibly important for high purity systems in pharmaceutical equipment. The surface of metal parts in Pharmaceutical equipment, including tanks, vessels, valves, pumps and other accessories needs to be perfectly smooth, free of anomalies and other contaminants left behind by mechanical polishing. Electropolishing is one of the most popular finishes for pharmaceutical applications and provides several crucial benefits.
