Featured Speaker:

  • Martin Ginty, Industry Manager, Pharmaceutical, Munters GmbH
Desiccant Dehumidification for Energy Efficient Drying of Gelatine and HPMC Capsules


During manufacturing of gelatine and HPMC capsules, efficient and carefully controlled drying is essential for ensuring product quality and consistency. Users of Munters’ desiccant dehumidification have reported faster and more consistent drying times for freshly produced capsules thus allowing higher production volume and lower rates of non-compliant product, which in turn reduces production costs and fault finding efforts. These dehumidification solutions have the additional benefits of being energy efficient, hygienic and easy to maintain.

The webinar will focus on the following areas:

  • Controlling drying times and maintaining capsule moisture levels with desiccant dehumidification
  • Munters’ flexible range of solutions to meet all scales of production
  • Energy efficiency vs. Direct Expansion cooling and drying methods
  • Additional benefits of controlling humidity levels in manufacturing and storage spaces

The speaker will demonstrate how pharmaceutical manufacturers can benefit from Munters’ desiccant dehumidification solutions regardless of the local climatic conditions.
