KELVA Web Cleaning for Pharma and Medical Packaging

Dust-free packaging production in pharmaceutical and medical industries is a challenging goal to achieve. Pharma products and medicines are expected to be 100% clean, hygienic and safe.

Manufacturers as well as converters take important measures to eliminate dust and debris in their production or finishing processes. Remaining particles contaminate the product and can potentially harm a patient or cause respiratory/allergic reactions for people handling the product.

Dust: the Med Device Deal Breaker

Dust is bad in packaging production for pharmaceutical and medical products. Dust can settle on the material or product surface leading to physical changes that can impact the product’s quality for further finishing processes or during consumption.

Dust can jeopardize package integrity by interfering with the sealing or bonding properties, leading to leaks, discoloration, and bad printing quality of package surfaces. Altogether, dust can result in serious non-compliance with regulatory standards, leading to product recalls and damaging the company’s reputation.

Dust Is Everywhere

Reducing dust contamination is possible through good manufacturing practices, proper ventilation and filtration systems, and regularly cleaning the production environment, but some level of contamination is always present.
