India is the largest provider of generic drugs globally. Indian pharmaceutical sector supplies over 50% of global demand for various vaccines, 40 % of generic demand in the US and 25 % of all medicine in the UK.
Presently, over 80% of the antiretroviral drugs used globally to combat AIDS (Acquired Immune Deficiency Syndrome) are supplied by Indian pharmaceutical firms.
The market size of the basic chemicals industry across the country was estimated to be approximately 174 billion U.S. dollars in fiscal year 2020, up from about 119 billion U.S. dollars in fiscal year 2015.
Indian pharmaceutical sector is expected to grow to US$ 100 billion, while the medical device market is expected to grow US$ 25 billion by 2025. Pharmaceuticals export from India stood at US$ 20.70 billion in FY20. Pharmaceutical exports include bulk drugs, intermediates, drug formulations, biological, Ayush and herbal products and surgical.
In Pharmaceutical & Chemical industries they have to maintain a purity of material very strictly. With the involvement of the Food & Drug association(FDA), it has now become mandatory to produce pharmaceutical drugs and chemicals according to FDA standards.
Failure in removing impurities will affect the product quality also can create health issues. PML magnetic separators help them to achieve their goal by providing a good quality iron separators to install in the process lines to remove iron impurity.
Please find a brief description of PML products which are mostly used in the pharma & chemical industry.
Magnetic filter :
Magnetic filter is the preferred product which is used in liquid & semi liquid process lines. The high power magnetic elements (rods) present in it are able to catch fine iron particles also from the product . The construction is in SS which makes it safer to use in food & chemical processing lines. Available in 12000 Gauss power also.
Magnetic grill :
Magnetic grills are preferably used for dry powder or granular like products. It also contains high power magnetic rods which are able to catch fine iron articles.Available in square & round shape which makes it easier to place into the material feeding hoppers. SS construction makes it suitable to use for pharma & chemical products. Available in 12000 Gauss also.
Magnetic drawer grill :
It is the advanced version of normal magnetic grills. Suitable to use for dry free flowing powdered or granular material. Removable magnet tray provided for easy cleaning. Multiple magnetic drawers can be implemented for better efficiency. Available in 12000 Gauss power also. SS body construction. Suitable to use for vertical process pipelines.
Magnetic rod :
This is the same rod which is used in magnetic grill, filter, drawer grill, chute etc.Can be used where space is less. Available in 12000 Gauss power also. Ideal to use for inspection purposes to check iron presence in the product. SS construction, safe for pharma & chemical products.
Magnetic rota grid :
Best suitable for processing stick material. High power Rare earth (NdFeb) magnets with peak 10500 Gauss on poles of the magnetic rod. Effectively catches the micron level of iron contamination. These are available with MOC of either SS304 or SS316.
