That pharmaceuticals place high demands on their production is hardly surprising. The end-product must be always safe and effective, and waste of precious API 's must be avoided wherever possible.
For example, during production in the pharmaceutical industry, metering pumps are used to dose additives very accurately. These pumps must meet high standards. This is vital to ensure that drug production is safe and effective. Gear pumps are then a logical choice.
One of the advantages of gear pumps is their precision, which is very important for the quality of the final product. This is because the amount of liquid pumped can be controlled and adjusted to the specific requirements of a production process. Wasting expensive ingredients is therefore a thing of the past. Moreover, gear pumps are characterised by continuous, pulsation-free dosing and low shear stress. Two more important contributions to your quality!
As gear pumps are configured specifically for the application, they are highly reliable and durable. The high-quality and possibly polished (Ra < 0.8) materials are resistant to corrosion and wear. This makes them suitable for use in demanding environments, such as clean rooms.
Due to the chemical character of additives, it is often necessary for pumps to be leak-proof. Magnetically coupled gear pumps are hermetically sealed. The shaft seals have given way to a magnetic bushing with static seals that hermetically seal the pump. This way, no leakage can occur!
To meet the GMP guidelines to which pharma must conform, gear pumps are available that are either SIP- or CIP-cleanable. Designed to meet the highest hygiene and quality requirements, they can be thoroughly cleaned without dismantling.
Inspection documentation is made available for the wetted parts:
For the metal parts, material certificates type 3.1 and the declaration of conformity 2.1 (DIN EN 10204:2005) are supplied. Including ATEX certification if applicable.
