Active Pharmaceutical Ingredients

Mott porous metal products are a key component in multiple chemical processing operations, including the active pharmaceutical ingredient process. Pharmaceutical ingredient manufacturers can achieve the best filtrate quality and catalyst/activated carbon removal by using Mott’s sub-micron filtration technology. This technology is particularly effective in liquid-solids and gas-solids separations, sparging, and flow control applications, all of which are integral to the active pharmaceutical ingredient process. 

The demanding and extreme environments typical in the processing of specialty chemicals, including those used in active pharmaceutical ingredient production, are the perfect match for the precision and durability of Mott porous metal products. By implementing Mott technology, manufacturers involved in the active pharmaceutical ingredient process significantly increase ROI through the production of a consistently pure end-product and the recovery of valuable solids from the process.
