Similar to the food and beverage industry, easy-to-clean, contamination-resistant surfaces are extremely important in the pharmaceutical industry.
For this reason, the use of electropolishing to deter microbiological, or any other type of contamination, has been growing each passing year. The microscopically smooth finish attained by electropolishing allows companies to ensure that all standards and regulations are met, and minimal friction and maximum purity are achieved in any and all types of machinery or equipment used.
Commonly electropolished surfaces in the pharmaceutical industry include:
- Piping and tubing
- Pharmaceutical mixers
- Vessels and containers
