Air Conditioning for Pharmaceutical Plants

The emphasis in air conditioning system design in the pharmaceutical industry lies in providing a clean and aseptic environment with controlled relative humidity. The industry in itself is governed by a Good Manufacturing Practice (GMP) The goal of GMP is to provide guidelines for establishing proper environment and repeatable method of producing sterile products free from microbial and particulate contaminants. The GMP embraces a number of issues starting with the selection of building materials and finishes, planning the flow of equipment, personnel and products, determination of key parameters like temperature, humidity, pressures, airflow parameters and classification of clean rooms. It also governs the level of control of various parameters for quality assurance, regulating the acceptance criteria, validation of the facility, and documentation for operation and maintenance.
