Overview of Pharmaceutical Industry

There are two types of equipment used in the pharmaceutical industry for manufacturing: API (Active Pharmaceutical Ingredient) and Formulation Equipment. API equipment refers to specialized equipment that is designed to handle various stages of API synthesis, purification, and processing to ensure high-quality and potent pharmaceutical compounds.

Reactors, crystallizers, centrifuges, filtration systems, drying equipment, and high-speed dispersers make up the equipment used for API production. Here is how the process follows:

1. The raw material is provided as input in the reactors
2. Chemical synthesis occurs in the reactors for the creation of the API compound
3. The synthesized material undergoes crystallization to enhance the purity
4. The centrifuges separate solids from liquids, and filtration removes any impurity which is left.
5. The desired API enters the drying equipment to eliminate all the moisture.

Formulation equipment refers to a set of equipment to manufacture dosage forms of API, like tablets, capsules, creams, and ointments. Mixing vessels, tablet compression machines, coating equipment, packaging machinery, and high-speed dispersers make up the formulation equipment. Here’s how the process follows:

1. Raw materials, like API and excipients, are introduced in the manufacturing facility.
2. The raw materials are thoroughly mixed and blended to ensure homogeneity.
3. The blended materials are either compressed or encapsulated.
4. If the coating is required, then either functional, protective, or aesthetic coating is done as per the product’s characteristics.
