Pharma Packaging Solutions Launches Low Relative Humidity Packaging Suite

03.24.17

Designed to protect humidity-sensitive products that require special handling

Pharma Packaging Solutions has introduced a new low relative humidity primary packaging suite in Clinton, TN, designed to maintain low relative humidity levels. The company provides oral solid dose packaging solutions including bottling, blistering and cartoning to the pharmaceutical industry.

The new packaging suite maintains low relative humidity levels to protect humidity-sensitive products that require special handling. At a temperature of 70 degrees, relative humidity (RH) can be maintained as low as 6% according to the company. For some product types, it is critical to safeguard the production environment as moisture can modify the rates of chemical degradation. The low relative humidity packaging suite extends the work-in-progress (WIP) time, which affects how long components can be opened or exposed.
