Measurement technology for the pharmaceutical industry
In view of the high demands on the quality and product safety from pharmaceutical production, sterile process engineering plays a significant part in the cost-effectiveness and safety of the production processes, in both upstream and downstream areas. Even in the further course of the process chain, up to cleaning and sterilisation, contamination-free processing is a crucial quality factor. From measuring instruments, this demands a combination of the most up-to-date hygienic design and, at the same time, a high measurement accuracy.
Measuring instruments from WIKA are manufactured in line with the GMP guidelines (good manufacturing practice). They meet the stringent requirements of, e.g.:
- FDA (Food and Drug Administration)
- EHEDG (European Hygienic Engineering & Design Group)
- 3-A Sanitary Standards, Inc.
- ASME BPE (Bioprocessing Equipment)
- ATEX (directive 94/9/EC)
For conformity verification with certification through the FDA and national authorities, we have a comprehensive programme of certificates available. For the ongoing testing of the measuring instruments in the context of quality management, a wide range of calibration equipment and calibration services are available.
WIKA supplies a wide range of industry-standard and manufacturer-specific process connections in hygienic design, for example:
- Clamp connections, Tri-clamp, DIN 32676, ISO 2852, ASME BPE
- Aseptic connections DIN 11864
- NEUMO BioConnect®, BioControl® and elastomer-free ConnectS®, BioControl® CS
For toxic, bioactive substances or very sensitive substances, special instrumentation options are available in order to integrate the measuring instruments into the plants without elastomers.
WIKA has been active in the contractor business for more than 25 years. Together with international engineering companies we realise large projects all over the world being more than simply a reliable supplier of high-quality measuring instruments: We develop - together with you - products and solutions made custom-fit to your requirements.
During all phases of the project WIKA remains your competent partner: Starting with planning in the basic and detail engineering, through realisation and implementation of the project, all the way to the after-sales support.
The factors of high-level performance
WIKA’s high level of performance is based essentially on three factors: A wide and innovative product range, comprehensive and competent service and reliable global presence. We are happy to assist in your success.
