How can I use IBCs in a two-floor pharmaceutical facility?

How can I use IBCs in a two-floor pharmaceutical facility?
18/11/2017

Flexible, cost-effective, and one of the ‘leanest’ types of materials handling system around, Intermediate Bulk Containers (IBCs) make perfect sense for any manufacturing industry that needs to move powders, granules or tablets between processes. We explain how a two-floor pharmaceutical facility can make the best use of IBCs.

Why IBCs?

When it comes to the pharmaceutical manufacture of oral solid dosage (OSD) products, three things are of the utmost concern: quality, safety, and profitability.

This is especially true in the manufacture of generic OSD products, where quality and safety demands are stringent, but lower profit margins mean that high volumes must be sold to get a sound return on investment.

Using Intermediate Bulk Containers (IBCs) in a pharmaceutical facility that produces generic oral solid dosage (OSD) products is one way to trim production costs without compromising on the products

themselves. IBCs, especially those made with Matcon’s precision-engineered Cone Valve technology, are the ultimate ‘lean’ solution for handling powders, granules or tablets.

The ‘lean’ philosophy is all about eliminating waste, because waste – whether that is lost ingredients, spoiled batches, or unnecessarily spent time or effort – all amounts to wasted money. Using an IBC-based production system is cleaner, more efficient and more flexible than other types of traditional manufacturing lines – talk to one of Matcon’s expert consultants to find out more about the benefits!
