Aqueous Cleaning in Pharmaceutical Manufacturing
The use of aqueous cleaning in pharmaceutical manufacturing can provide numerous benefits in terms of effectiveness, minimal surface residue, and easier cleaning validation.
Virtually any pharmaceutical manufacturing equipment (from tablet presses to stainless steel mixing tanks) can be cleaned to stringent critically clean criteria by aqueous cleaning.
Aqueous cleaners are typically formulated to ensure maximum cleaning performance by using key ingredients such as surface active agents (surfactants), excellent wetting agents that allow the cleaning solution to penetrate crevices while getting under soils to allow for removal.
