 speaks about how Grundfos Solutions automated the process and increasing energy savings.

The Active Pharmaceuticals Ingredients (APIs) are manufactured from raw materials through both chemicals and physical means. The quality of API plays a very crucial role in defining the quality criteria of medicines.

The API manufacturing processes are complex are needed to adhere to product quality standards, vital safety conditions, demanding a regulatory environment. The key challenge is to ensure the production with optimal energy consumption by incorporating efficient and sustainable solutions.

Rakshit Pharma in association with Grundfos optimized and automated the processes using Grundfos iSOLUTIONS. With Grundfos E- pumps, the system complexities are reduced, thereby increasing the reliability and energy efficiency of the pumping systems. The CRE pump with IE5 MGE motors solved the challenge of Demineralized (DM) water circulation system by smoothly handling variable load profiles, thereby increasing the overall efficiency of system.
