Hygienic Design

Components and plants for particle design

While standard supercritical extraction equipment is suitable for foods, the pharmaceutical industry has higher requirements concerning materials, surfaces, prevention of dead space, cleanability, process controls documentation and others.

Uhde High Pressure Technologies has developed hygienic high pressure pipe fittings and valves, modified experienced equipment like the clamp closure system for high pressure vessels and uses innovative manufacturing procedures like orbital welding of pipes.

Plants are designed to allow easy draining of the process fluids. CIP and WIP features can be implemented.

Design, manufacturing and documentation of plants will be carried out according to current Good Manufacturing Practice cGMP.

Pharmaceutical plants from Uhde High Pressure Technologies fulfill all demands on FDA, EMEA, cGMP, GAMP etc. SPS, SCADA and visualization fulfill the requirements of 21 CFR Part 11, GAMP.
