High Purity Water Treatment
Water is widely used in pharmaceutical industries as raw material, ingredient, and solvent in the processing, and manufacture of pharmaceutical products, active pharmaceutical ingredients (API) and intermediates, compendia articles, and reagents.
There are many different grades of water used for pharmaceutical purposes. These can be divided into two general groups – bulk waters which are produced and used at the site, and packaged waters which are produced, packaged, and sterilized to preserve microbial quality through their shelf life.
- Purified water:
It is primarily used for the production of non-parenteral preparations and for other purposes like cleaning equipment and non-parenteral contact components. It is also used for all assays and tests. Purified water must meet the requirements for ionic and organic chemical purity and must be protected from microbial contamination.The minimal source or feed water for the production of purified water is drinking water.
- Sterile purified water:
It is used in the preparation of non-parenteral compendial dosages and analytical applications. It is packaged from purified water and rendered sterile.
- Water for injection (WFI):Used for preparation of parenteral preparations and other similar uses where product endotoxin content must be controlled.
- Sterile water for injection:Water for injection is packaged and rendered sterile and used for sterile dilution of parenteral products. There are two main purification methods. Reverse osmosis is when water flows at high pressure through a semipermeable membrane that separates out contaminants. The other technique is called electrodialysis (EDI) , in which ions in saltwater are separated using an electrical current. The high-purity water systems to use depends on what you’re trying to remove from your water.
