Due to the nature of the work Pharmaron carries out, it is vital that the company has a constant supply of pure water. VWT UK has been providing maintenance and support to the Pharmaron Hoddesdon site for water purification equipment since the early 2000s, ensuring an uninterrupted supply of purified water (USP/Ph Eur grade). This water is used for both cleaning equipment and as a raw material in the production of Active Pharmaceutical Ingredients.
The new ORIONTM 500 has replaced one of the three water purification units supplied by VWT UK in 2004, which had been operated in a ‘duty and back-up’ arrangement for many years. However, changes in output by the company had led to one ORIONTM unit being decommissioned and used for spares, prior to the new purchase being made as a planned upgrade.
