Pharmaceutical Air Filtration System

Pharmaceutical facilities usually have a more complex HVAC system than a typical commercial or industrial building, due to the strict air quality standards they must maintain.  Proper filtration is a necessity in these applications to minimize downtime and streamline production within the clean rooms, while capitalizing on energy savings within budget guidelines.


  • Pharmaceutical facilities usually have a more complex HVAC system than a typical commercial or industrial building due to stricter air quality standards.

  • Typically systems use make-up air units with a variety of filters to treat the air before it enters the clean room.

  • Selecting products with a lower pressure drop inside of these units can result in lower energy costs for the facility.

  • A ceiling mounted HEPA or ULPA filter eliminates all submicron particulate that has made it through the make-up air system.

  • The final filter creates the clean environment needed for pharmaceutical applications while also providing laminar flow in the clean rooms.

  • Ultraviolet lights have also been successfully used in pharmaceutical applications to irradiate any microbiological contaminants in the facility.

  • A combination of these different types of filtration work together to insure that pharmaceutical facilities remain a sterile environment.
