Tablet Moisture Control

Drug tablet creation requires stringent quality standards from the delivery of raw materials to the final quality check and shipping. Humidity variables within these stages when manufacturing drug tablets can cause repercussions. Some variables affected by humidity include powder caking, reduced overall drug effectiveness, unwanted electro-static charges, and potential losses of entire batches of product by failing Federal Food and Drug Administration (FDA) requirements. Over-dried powder becomes too fine, and therefore difficult to manipulate through the necessary stages of production.

The FDA strongly encourages drug tablet creators to use Current Good Manufacturing Practices (cGMPs) to ensure the quality of their products. Moisture control can be one of the more costly quality measures drug tablet manufacturers will undertake. Fortunately, MoistTech’s history of excellence in the manufacturing industry keeps the cGMPs on the cutting edge of quality assurance while keeping costs low. Proper moisture control with MoistTech’s sensors can save thousands by preventing raw material losses, batch losses from failed quality testing, and production time losses, while ensuring the final tablets are the highest possible quality.

Monitor Table Moisture with MoistTech’s IR-3000 Moisture Sensor

The IR-3000 near infrared (NIR) online moisture detector and software system was designed to measure the moisture in the most exacting environments under the strictest of regulations. You can meet and exceed FDA regulations for drug tablet moisture control because the sensor provides non-contact measurement, allowing moisture control in real time. By using the IR-3000 from MoistTech to optimize process control, you can expect better product quality, improved productivity, and diminished production costs.
