Quality Of Water In Pharmaceutical Industry

Description:

Water is a key element for numerous pharmaceutical and life sciences processes. As a raw material, water is used in processing, formulation and manufacturing various pharmaceutical products and active pharmaceutical ingredients (API). Most industries rely majorly on surface water and groundwater sources for their pharmaceutical purposes. In its natural state, water from these sources is not free from contamination and needs to be purified before industries use it for pharmaceutical purposes. – PowerPoint PPT presentation

  • Water is a key element for numerous
    pharmaceutical and life sciences processes. As a
    raw material, water is used in processing,
    formulation and manufacturing various
    pharmaceutical products and active pharmaceutical
    ingredients (API). Most industries rely majorly
    on surface water and groundwater sources for
    their pharmaceutical purposes. In its natural
    state, water from these sources is not free from
    contamination and needs to be purified before
    industries use it for pharmaceutical
    purposes.This process of water purification
    involves distillation and deionization that
    reduces the concentration of contaminated
    particles, parasites, bacteria, algae, viruses,
    and fungi. It is imperative that water is treated
    using proper procedures to ensure its
    purity.Depending on the route of administration
    of the pharmaceutical product, different grades
    of water quality are required. Based on water
    quality, below are different types of water for
    pharmaceutical use purposes.
  • 1. Drinking waterDrinking water can be best
    described as Potable water. It may be sourced
    from a public water utility, a private water
    supply (e.g., a well) or a combination of both.
    Drinking water is the minimum quality of water
    that ought to be used for the preparation of
    official substances and other bulk pharmaceutical
    substances. The treatment required to make it
    safe for human consumption is determined post
    evaluating the condition of the source water.
    Drinking water, free from contamination is used
    for cleaning pharmaceutical manufacturing
    equipment and product-contact components. Some
    common methods of treatment include
    desalinization, softening, deionization, particle
    reduction, and reduction of inorganic and/or
    organic materials.The equipment and systems used
    to produce drinking water, their storage tanks,

  • distribution pipeworks and the water
    quality itself need to be routinely monitored for
    environmental, seasonal or supply changes which
    may affect the integrity of the water systems in
    place. Additionally, techniques such as back
    flushing, chemical and /or thermal sanitization
    should be put in place to tackle recontamination
    of water.
  • 2. Purified Water Purified water is used mainly
    as an excipient in the production of
    non-parenteral administrations and in other
    pharmaceutical applications. Non-parenteral is
    most commonly referred to as the route that oral
    medications are administered, therefore it is of
    utmost importance that water used for
    non-parenteral preparations must meet the
    requirements for ionic and organic chemical
    purity.Purified water is generally produced by
    ion exchange, reverse osmosis, and
    ultrafiltration. While producing purified water
    it is important to protect it from
    recontamination and other microbial protection.
    Water treatment company provides sterile plant in
    pharmaceutical industry which is useful.
