Pharmaceutical industry boilers are a critical component to any processing plant. Whether the steam boiler is used in the process of medicinal drying, sterilizing, and purifying; boilers used in the pharma industry must be extremely precise, which means it has high temperature control demands.
Most pharmaceutical firms choose high pressure steam boilers due to the simplicity and efficiency of the system. At the same time, high pressure steam boilers can be used for direct heating as well as indirect heating. All of these reasons are why high pressure steam boilers are the premier solution for pharmaceutical process heating.
Applied Technologies of New York offers a full suite of world-class, high pressure and efficient boiler solutions for pharmaceutical processing firms. These pharmaceutical boilers are versatile enough to meet the vast range of needs demonstrated by the pharmaceutical industry. Continue reading for to learn more about the key considerations for choosing the best pharmaceutical industry boilers.
Boilers Used in Pharma Industry Must Produce Clean Steam
Pharmaceutical companies need the boiler to generate steam for working process. However, not all steam is created equally. Steam quality can be categorized by its purity level, which is mandated by the end-use application. Make sure the boiler you choose can provide the quality of steam needed for your pharmaceutical facility applications.
Plant steam or house steam is the lowest grade of steam. It’s used by laundries, healthcare facilities, paper & pulp, food & beverage, and petrochemical. As the most economical type of steam to produce, plant steam can be produced by natural gas and electricity. Softened feed water can be used to reduce mineral deposits and decrease hard water.
Clean steam is a step above plant steam and is used by pharmaceutical industry, laboratories, health care facilities, as well as the food & beverage industry. Clean steam contains no dissolved materials and is commonly created from reverse osmosis or deionized treatment systems. This type of steam is required in facilities producing sterile products — but where endotoxins are not a concern.
Pure steam is the highest quality of steam. This type of steam is critical to biotechnology and pharmaceuticals, especially for injectable drug production. Pure steam is regularly used when absolute sterility is necessary to guarantee process repeatability.
The Fulton VSRT Leads the Pack with Clean Steam
If you’re looking for the premier boiler for producing clean steam for pharmaceutical processing facilities, the Fulton Vertical Spiral Rib Tubeless steam boiler is in a class of its own. The VSRT is the first refractory-free, fully-wetted vertical tubeless boiler.
This modern marvel represents the newly defined standard for industrial steam boiler design. The Fulton VSRT can produce steam at more than 99.75% steam quality, which is more than sufficient for most pharmaceutical processing plant’s clean steam needs.
Why Are Fulton Boilers Used in the Pharma Industry ?
