ML Plus creates perfect coating conditions for Jemo
ML Plus system enables coating of pills in demanding conditions.
Jemo-pharm A/S is a Danish pharmaceutical company, producing herbal medicine, nutritional supplements and vitamins.
The company is GMP-certified, which is normally not required for production of nutritional supplements but as Jemo-pharm A/S has a GMP certified production of medicines, all products are produced in accordance with GMP.
The GMP rules contain comprehensive requirements to e.g. production climate conditions and today, dehumidification from Munters helps Jemo-pharm A/S to fulfill these requirements.
By capsuling of cranberry powder, a relative humidity below 30% is required. At a higher humidity, the powder changes consistency and becomes sticky and flowing, making the capsuling impossible. A Munters dehumidifier type ML420 provides the perfect climate for this production process, keeping the powder dry no matter what the ambient air conditions.
When Jemo-pharm A/S started up production of garlic pills, the coating process requested a dry climate with a temperature at 20°C and a relative humidity below 20%. To create this condition only by conventional cooling would be impossible, so Munters were asked to provide a solution, and an ML690 Plus was designed to meet these requirements. This ML Plus is provided with an integrated pre- and postcooler.
The smaller footprint of the ML Plus unit compared to separate units for cooling and dehumidifying was a major argument for choosing the ML Plus solution. The unit had to be installed outdoor in a shed with limited space conditions, adjacent to the production facility.
