The sensitive nature of pharmaceutical products means that effective storage is imperative where preservation is concerned. Tablets, capsules and powders are all vulnerable to humidity and lose quality if they absorb moisture. When almost all products within this sector are ultimately used for medicinal purposes, the importance of protecting them cannot be overstated. The safest and most effective way of stockpiling before distribution is by controlling the environment they are stored in.

At Andrews, we can enhance your storage space by providing specific dehumidification packages for all types of specification. Our units provide substantial quantities of energy, keeping areas of all sizes dry. We are extremely conscious of the impact downtime can have on your business, which is why we act quickly to prevent output dropping below normal levels.

With a selection of desiccant dehumidifiers to choose from, we guarantee to have an appropriate solution for your particular application. These are all capable of producing very low levels of relative humidity, without exorbitant energy costs.

The majority of pharmaceutical systems require between 20% and 35% relative humidity, at temperatures between 21°C and 24°C. Tableting processes will operate much more smoothly when executed under these conditions, and output levels will also increase. Additionally, the risk of bacteria forming along the production line is greatly reduced - if this cool dry environment is maintained.

By using desiccant dehumidification in your manufacturing premises, you can economically remove excess moisture without interrupting the overall procedure. Our drying units will also stop dampness affecting pills, drugs and medicines, when shelf-life and quality might otherwise suffer. As well as productivity, hygiene conditions will improve considerably when your humidity levels are measured.

We provide clients with the simplest, most accurate method of controlling this variable so that your operations can continue unconstrained. If you require reliable, safe drying equipment delivered to your location, call us on 0800 211 611. Our expert consultants are qualified to direct you towards viable solutions to suit your business model, and can even give preliminary quotes. You can also complete an enquiry form, where one of our professional staff will get back to you and discuss your query in more detail.
