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® and NEUMO BioControl®
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 worked with licensing and EPC companies for more than 30 years on major projects all over the world. We partner with you from the planning stages through to completion, and we provide post-project support. In addition to supplying high-quality process measurement instruments for temperature, pressure, level and flow applications, we can also work with you to develop solutions that meet your exact requirements.
