Nutraceutical Manufacturing and Storage
Desiccant dehumidification is used to provide humidity control that allows for consistent production in all nutraceutical applications.
New guidelines for nutraceutical manufacturing call for complete product consistency and the highest quality. At the same time, the demands of the marketplace require efficient, low cost production. The keys to meeting both requirements are predictability and stability of the process variables. Of all the important process parameters, environmental humidity can vary the most.
Many vitamin processes require low humidity such as tableting, hard capsules and softgels. Certain herbs and powders are extremely hygroscopic resulting in the need for low humidity. These processes can be overwhelmed by even normal (50%) humidity, yielding inconsistent product and erratic production rates. Munters offers a dependable, cost-effective solution to humidity control.
Desiccant humidity control technology provides consistent moisture removal capacity, even at low humidity control levels. The nutraceutical process benefits in important ways.
