Pharmaceutical HVAC Systems
This pharmaceutical training course provides delegates with an in-depth understanding of the key aspects of Heating Ventilation & Air Conditioning (HVAC) System design (designed in tandem with the facility), construction, operation and maintenance. It covers facility HVAC systems for a range of drug product types and APIs, including non-sterile drug products, for example oral solid dose/oral liquids, inhalation non-sterile products and aseptically manufactured products. Key considerations such as dust removal for safety and product quality protection are also covered by this course. One key focus of the course is how HVAC systems control critical room air attributes such as particle levels, temperature and relative humidity. Filtration, differential pressure cascades/control, room air change rates and the types of air mixing (turbulent versus unidirectional) are discussed in detail. To ensure this course is properly rounded, areas such as a risk based approach to the qualification of HVAC system equipment and the validation / qualification of environmental conditions, for sterile and non-sterile facilities, are carefully integrated into the course.
The course also recognises the current drive towards energy savings / carbon emission reduction and includes useful information on how the energy usage of Pharmaceutical HVAC Systems can be correctly assessed and subsequently reduced by changing the operating philosophy (based on risk assessments) and making suitable modifications. This will be reinforced with the use of real-life examples.
