Production of chemical active pharmaceutical ingredients

Manufacturing chemical active pharmaceutical ingredients (APIs) poses distinct challenges because APIs sometimes require a unique set of processes to obtain the final product. Successful processing therefore requires process efficiency to produce stable APIs in a safe, consistent and cost-effective manner while preserving the safety, identity, strength, quality and purity of the drug.

As a knowledgeable partner to pharmaceutical manufacturers, Alfa Laval has a broad range of hygienic equipment. Whether measuring, pumping, separating, diverting, heating, cooling, agitating or mixing, automating, controlling and cleaning for critical processes, Alfa Laval has most everything required to support the production of chemical APIs. Through process optimization, we help you lower costs and cycle times, minimize contamination risks and safeguard the purity and maximize yield of produced APIs.

All components are supplied with comprehensive pharmaceutical documentation packages based on Good Documentation Practice (GDP).  For Alfa Laval UltraPure pumps, valves, tank equipment and heat exchangers we have the Alfa Laval Q-doc package which ensures full traceability of all process contact parts of the equipment supplied.
