As the world leader of energy efficient desiccant dehumidifiers Munters is constantly refining the desiccant wheel technique, materials and capacity....
pharmacuetical business review



Munters temperature and humidity climate solutions to assist manufacture and storage of products. It creates comfortable indoor environments and energy efficient climate control.

The company was established more than 65 years ago and with ore than 3,000 employees in 30 offices worldwide.

Desiccant dehumidification for increased production efficiency

In pharmaceutical manufacturing processes, precise control of temperature and humidity is essential. Climate conditions vary over the year and in periods with high humidity and temperatures both product quality and production efficiency will be negatively affected.

Pharmaceutical products such as powders, tablets, capsules and labsticks are sensitive and often lose quality and shelf-life when being exposed to high humidity. They stick together, become mouldy or break apart. Pipes and machinery become clogged, impeding production, storage and transport.

Energy savings in product drying

Munters’ air treatment technology creates suitable conditions for product drying, conveying, tabletting, milling, mixing, packing, freezing and storing raw materials and final products within the pharmaceutical industry.

This guarantees consistent quality, significant energy cost savings and increased throughput.

•   Munters air treatment systems reduce:

•   Drying times and unintentional moisture absorption

•   Condensation

•   Product sticking and caking

•   Mould

•   Frost build up and blocked machinery

Combined temperature and humidity control

Simply by mastering the temperature and humidity of the ambient air, it is possible to achieve significant cost savings and quality improvements.

The key is to control the air quality surrounding the production process with Munters’ air treatment systems, which are designed around a desiccant dehumidifier.

Munters patented innovative air treatment systems give fast productivity, reduce the risk of accidents and waste in cold storage and with desiccant wheels (rotors) independently proven to be both bactericidal and fungicidal, a high level of hygiene will support compliance with hazard and critical control point (HACCP) regulations and good manufacturing practice (GMP) certification.

Climate control in pharmaceutical manufacturing processes

Outdoor winter conditions with low absolute humidity provide an ideal production climate for most processes within the pharmaceutical industry.

In summer conditions, however, many processes are adversely affected by the increased humidity levels, creating multiple problems associated with condensation.

Munters creates stable conditions all year round to guarantee less waste and longer shelf life.

Condensation prevention

By fully controlling the relative humidity, condensation can be prevented and the growth of mould and fungus is greatly reduced.

As part of a coordinated programme, this can help to satisfy the requirements of today strict hygienic regulations. Furthermore, the constant climate around the year makes production both more reliable and fully predictable.

The basic principle of desiccant dehumidification developed by Carl Munters more than 60 years back is still the most efficient drying technique known today.

Like most good ideas, Munters dehumidification principle is basically simple. As functioning without any cooling coils, Munters desiccant dehumidifiers use no chlorofluorocarbons (CFC), hydrochlorofluorocarbons (HCFC) or gases linked with ozone depletion.

By optimising rotor material and the control of the desiccant rotor, Munters is able to improve dehumidification capacity and reduce energy consumption.

The Quantum™ rotor and internal rotor heat recovery systems are examples of Munters’ environmentally friendly thinking, resulting in higher production capacity and lower energy bills.

The company provides you with a green alternative to other dehumidification techniques while protecting the environment.

With a global network of production facilities certified to ISO9001 and ISO14001, Munters places high priority on environmental considerations.

All products leaving Munters’ premises are thoroughly tested to ensure smooth operation and minimum energy consumption. Some systems are also available in special hygienic versions.
