The chemicals and pharmaceuticals industry manufactures under demanding general conditions. In the chemicals industry, the handling of critical substances is paramount, while in the pharmaceuticals industry, it is stringent hygiene regulations in particular that are imposed on manufacturers. The production plants must fulfil these requirements.
Aggressive media, toxic vapours and risk of explosion are just three of many factors that plant operators in the chemicals industry must take into account at the engineering stage. In the pharmaceuticals sector, GMP guidelines and regulatory requirements for hygienic production, cleaning and disinfection must be complied with. The market also places demands on both industry sectors: competition and price pressure compel companies to design their production processes as efficiently as possible.
