The production of pharmaceuticals requires effective solutions that can guarantee excellent hygiene, top product quality, and safe working conditions for operators.
Discover the Nilfisk machines we recommend for the pharma industry.
Benefits & Advantages
Cleanrooms hygieneThe essential elements of a cleanroom are filters for high (HEPA) and ultra high efficiency (ULPA), depending on the nature of the contaminants to be controlled. Nilfisk can provide machines suitable for the most severe ISO 4 cleanrooms.
Vacuuming waste from machinery
Powerful and silent, mobile or fixed, Nilfisk industrial vacuums conform to GMPs. Our machines offer a smooth design without angles or stagnant pockets to avoid dust residuals. Nilfisk industrial vacuums are top quality and remove dust from the environment and from equipment, avoiding product contamination.They also continuously collect dust and waste, increasing productivity and saving time. Nilfisk machines help guard your employees’ health, providing total filtration so the working environment is dust-free and air is clean and healthy.
Deep cleaning the floor
In small to medium laboratories and all around the production site, assuring maximum hygiene in the minimum time possible is key.The walk-behind Nilfisk scrubber dryer series offers comfort and productivity in a compact and easy-to-clean design.Floors are deep-cleaned and dried in one single pass, even in small and congested areas. The Nilfisk Ecoflex system lets you temporarily boost water and detergent for more aggressive cleaning tasks. We believe it is the best solution for pharmaceutical production facilities.
Convey powder, granules, tablets and empty capsules
Convey the dust mixture
Nilfisk pneumatic conveyors move dry raw materials, such as powders and/or granules, to feed processing machines and systems such as reactors, mixers, dosing machines, bins, and blistering machines. Nilfisk is always ready to provide customised solutions, and our solutions are always certified.
A pushing system is frequently used to move and transfer empty capsules of different sizes to the filling machine, preserving their integrity. The machines move the material to the required location in the selected quantities and within the desired time. The product conveying process takes place in perfect hygienic conditions, respecting both the environment and the operators’ health.
The recovery of
pharmaceutical active compounds requires special devices and features to
protect the operator from contact. Nilfisk has designed a high containment
filter unit (up to OEB5) for this application. It is available in several versions,
from standard to the most customised.
Safe absolute filter replacement
The HEPA filter can be
safely removed thanks to the BagIn BagOut (BIBO) system. The operator does not
come into contact with the contaminated particulate filter while removing the
bag, protecting the operator against contaminants
retained by the filter unit. The sealed bag containing the filter is then
removed and disposed of.
Safe material disposal
The hopper is emptied, opening the butterfly valve. The material is collected into a plastic bag that can be safely sealed, removed and replaced by the operator without any contact with particles.
Clean in place & wash in place
The cyclone unit and
filter unit can be washed inside – both by complete flooding and sprayballs -
deactivating dust on the surfaces. The exhaust air is filtered by HEPA filters,
while the washing liquid can be safely discharged. The WIP and CIP processes
can be validated with fluorescein tests before installation.
Fixed vacuuming is an integral part of medicine production process.
The automatic machines require a constant vacuum to avoid residual dust that can contaminate the medicines or be released into the environment.
Because the filter is a crucial element in the fixed vacuuming application, Nilfisk vacuum cleaners are equipped with HEPA and/or ULPA certified filters.
Industrial vacuums are an indispensable ally in pharmaceutical production. They provide quality and maintain safety.
