Environment Control

“Real-Life Scenario: Air Handling Unit Malfunction and Consequences”

Imagine a pharmaceutical facility relying on precise environmental control for production. In this setting, an air handling unit malfunction occurs, disrupting the carefully regulated temperature and humidity. If undetected, this glitch could lead to a chain of consequences.


  1. Product Quality Compromise: Uncontrolled conditions may affect the quality and efficacy of pharmaceutical products being manufactured.
  2. Operational Disruption: A malfunctioning air handling unit could disrupt ongoing processes, leading to production delays and potential financial losses.
  3. Safety Hazards: Inconsistent environmental control may create safety hazards, impacting the well-being of both the product and the personnel.
  4. Regulatory Compliance Concerns: Pharmaceutical production often adheres to strict regulatory standards. Failure to maintain environmental parameters might lead to compliance issues.

Artesis Intervention: Artesis’s monitoring technology swiftly detects the air handling unit malfunction. This timely intervention prevents product quality compromise, ensures operational continuity, maintains a safe working environment, and upholds regulatory compliance. Artesis acts as a safeguard, ensuring pharmaceutical production stays on track with precision and reliability.

Manufacturing Process

In the intricate web of production, the significance of small pumps, motor-driven mixers, and agitators in batch reactors often goes unnoticed. Yet, a failure in these seemingly minor components can lead to a substantial batch loss. Artesis simplifies the monitoring of these machines, eliminating the need for additional wiring or direct contact with the production line.

Moreover, Artesis ensures a seamless manufacturing process by monitoring conveying systems, guaranteeing a smooth transition from one station to another. In the broader manufacturing spectrum, service equipment like water for injection and deionized water systems is vital. Artesis monitors feeding and supply pumps within these systems, detecting both mechanical and electrical issues such as misalignment, loose foundation, bearing faults, and load fluctuations.

Importantly, Artesis operates within control panels, posing no threat to regulatory compliance in the production process. This means you can enjoy the benefits of advanced monitoring without any concerns about regulatory interference.”
