STEAMGARD® expertise helps pharmaceutical manufacturers meet stringent government standards in air-drying, sterilization, fermentation, chemical production and processes utilizing flash tanks, heat exchangers, dryers, kettles, stills, humidifiers and other equipment.
Because steam trap cycling is eliminated with THE STEAMGARD SYSTEM®, the sterilization process becomes virtually identical for any vessel or vessel size. This high level of quality assures no contamination and acts as a secondary verification of the process. Improved heat transfer provides better control of reactors and heat exchangers to achieve more efficient processing. Reduced steam consumption in terms of tons of steam/tons product means greater productivity and improved thermal efficiency helps improve product quality.
A major pharmaceutical manufacturer, concerned with excessive steam loss, high steam trap maintenance costs, expensive inventory requirements, and difficulties in maintaining process temperatures and controlling humidity, converted to THE STEAMGARD SYSTEM®. Overall steam loss was reduced dramatically, steam trap maintenance was cut to a once-a-year blowdown of the STEAMGARD® strainer, no spare parts are required, process temperatures are controlled within 2-3°F and humidity is controlled within 2%.
