Zeta Plus™ Activated Carbon Filter Media
Activated carbon is used to remove impurities from pharmaceutical manufacturing. These impurities are typically derived from chemical reactions that produce by-products which must be removed to maintain drug purity and produce high-quality intermediate compounds.
Activated carbon use in powdered form presents three primary areas of concern to the manufacturer, namely;
Operator exposure to carbon dust
The quality and reproducibility of the process
The operating costs associated with the use and handling of bulk activated carbon.
Zeta Plus™ Activated Carbon media incorporates the latest in depth filtration technology to remove contaminants from pharmaceutical process streams.
