Compressors for the healthcare and pharmaceutical industry

The reliability of Mattei compressors, the high quality standards of the delivered compressed air and the compliance with the industry regulations, make them ideal to be used in the healthcare and pharmaceutical industry.

How to choose your compressor

Choosing an air compressor must hinge on the specific production and environmental characteristics of this industry.

Compressed air in the healthcare and pharmaceutical industry

Compressed air is used in many applications both in the healthcare and pharmaceutical industry.

In the healthcare sector, compressed air is used for surgical applications (many instruments and tools work with compressed air) for different treatments on the patients (such as oxygen therapy, anaesthesia, administration of drugs through nebulizer), in laboratories, to operate diagnostic machines and equipment or even to dry medical equipment.

In the pharmaceutical sector, it is used as process air that comes directly into contact with the drugs for the following purposes: cleaning, aeration, handling, packaging and bottling. In the production lines, it is used to activate valves, pneumatic cylinders and different automations. Or directly in the production of drugs, such as in the case of the supply of oxygen to bacteria required for the production of antibiotics.



The importance of the air quality

Whether compressed air is used for applications in the healthcare or pharmaceutical sectors, the first critical point is to maintain a sterile working environment: compressed air must be completely dry and free from oil and other contaminants in order to be delivered with absolute reliability.

In addition, compressors for healthcare or pharmaceutical use must ensure operational continuity and flow stability to ensure that the supply takes place without interruptions or changes in flow. Safety and compliance with numerous legal regulations and standards are also essential factors in the choice of a compressor to be used in these areas.

It is therefore necessary to precisely identify the different air demand profiles and the ISO 8573.1 Air Quality Requirements for the installation. Identify and assess the need of control and management devices for the compressor rooms, define ancillary equipment needed for proper air treatment and potential for waste heat recovery, without forgetting about the safety, reliability and durability of the machines, especially when operating in delicate environmental conditions.

Mattei offers a consultancy service to support its customers in the selection of the best combination between the compressor features and the application and the ability to make custom-made solutions to satisfy particular needs.

The reduction of operating costs

The continuous use of compressed air for many processes results in very high energy consumption, in addition to necessary maintenance requirements of compressors and other air treatment devices. These are important cost items that healthcare facilities and pharmaceutical companies to seriously consider in order to save energy and minimize environmental impact.
