The pharmaceutical industry covers the manufacturing process of medicinal drugs like syrup, tablets, capsules, etc. and the process involves accurate measurement at various stages to finish the operation which associate with strict hygienic environment.

Applications

Storage
Level sensors in storage tanks

Storage is an essential aspect of pharmaceutical industries for controlling the overall process parameters like temperature, light and humidity and also level sensors are useful in maintaining inventory and avoiding overflow & dry run.

Liquid - Elixir-T-Uni, one of the vibrating fork level sensor with hygienic finish (Ra < 0.8ยต) is a ideal solution.

Solid - Free flowing material with less than 7-10% moisture content would be detected by Vital.

Tuning Fork Level Switch
Mixing
level sensors for mixing tanks

Mixing is a common process involved during production process of pharma industry and is done at different stages in the process. Batches are prepared with appropriate amount of material and mixed together for further processing.

Liquid - Syrup is viscous and creates coating which can be detected by Coat-Endure, which has build-up immunity.

Solid - Level detection with Vital would be suggested in solid material as it is calibration-free.

Admittance Level Switch
Water Purification
level sensors for water purification

To eliminate impurities and prohibit micro-bacterial growth water should be purified before it is used. SLW and Elixir-T-Uni type level sensors with hygienic mountings is proven solution in the purification process.

Conductive Liquid Level Sensor/Switch
Granulation
level sensors for granulation process

The granulation process depends on application media which includes grinding of material into finer pellets if inlet is solid or combining powder particles together by compressing to form granules. For solid applications SLC will be helpful.

Capacitance Level Sensor
Drying
level sensors for drying process

The resultant material comprises of moisture content which goes to drying process before final packaging starts. It includes removal of water from solids and semi-solids material by evaporation. Elixir-T-Uni is a effective solution as it is certified by EHEDG.

Tuning Fork Level Sensor/Switch
Packaging
level sensors for packaging

After completing all the task now the medicines are ready for packaging. Packaging requires fast and reliable level sensors integrated with automated packaging machines. Each medicine has separate packaging require different level sensor.

Liquid - Elixir perfectly caters level sensing for liquid material as it is compact.

Solid - Vital has fast switching of 0.5 & 0.8 sec which makes it good choice for packaging.
