There is no denying the global novel Coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic has introduced unprecedented challenges. However, as nations scrambled to come to grips with the changing context – particularly in the early stages of the lockdowns – efforts in combatting the impacts of the pandemic have also led to some of the fastest innovations markets have seen in decades.
If we look at testing and pharmaceutical laboratories, for example, these facilities across the globe have certainly been under immense pressure to meet the duality of demands; to ramp up on people screening test requirements and keeping up with research and development in the race to find a vaccine, or at least the right mix of antibody-based COVID-19 drugs, that can be rolled out at speed and scale.
Amidst the chaos of such pressures, these working environments demand extremely hygienic conditions. There is no room for error, as even the slightest contamination can render a screening test or drug sample batch inconclusive and/or unusable, which could set research back and this poses a knock-on risk to society’s ability to recover. And having the right equipment in place in the lab or for the production of pharmaceutical products is mission critical.
Taking this a step further, and at the heart of maintaining the highest levels of hygiene standards means having fit-for-purpose pumping solutions that have been designed and built to eliminate any risk of contaminants during production.
In laboratory and pharmaceutical environments, processes must be reliable, repeatable and error-free. To maintain this sustainably – and with the ability to adapt and quickly ramp up production when necessary – technicians need high quality equipment and machinery that is reliable and meets the highest hygiene standards and accuracy rates 100% of the time, to ensure the quality of their product is always of the highest standard.
As a global leader in advanced industrial and niche market pump solutions and laboratory equipment, Verder Pumps understands that navigating the technical obstacles of selecting the right pumping solutions for specific scientific and/or processing applications can be complex. Especially when the application requires a solution that offers the best fit and cleanability, as well as certified quality that is compliant with hygiene and safety standards. This is why Verder provides a one-stop offering of advanced, cost-effective, efficient and long-lasting solutions. Its hygienic pumps for the production of pharmaceutical products solve all challenges: from extremely high or low viscosity, to shear sensitivity liquids and, of course, abrasive fluids. Verder’s solutions are also comprehensively certified, available in different surface qualities and offer the best cleaning and self-draining capability.
The Packo 3A certified pharmaceutical process pumps of the PHP2 series are used for the most demanding sterile applications in the pharmaceutical, biotech and semi-conductor industry. These perfectly cleanable pumps have stainless steel 316L pump casings constructed in thick cold rolled plate, 100% non-porous and extremely smooth.
The pumps have fully machined open impellers constructed in 1.4435 material. Thanks to its crevice-free design and electropolishing as a final surface treatment, the PHP2 pump series is perfectly cleanable, resulting in a reliable component into your production process.
