Activated Carbon

Odour control packets containing activated carbon are an excellent desiccant for controlling any bad smell from the primary packaging. Thus, when combined with other primary packaging materials, the desiccant becomes more effective and a versatile odour-controlling solution for pharmaceutical companies. Therefore, the odour control packets ensure that the products reach the end-users without losing their quality and efficiency.

Pharmaceutical Desiccants is involved in manufacturing activated carbon desiccants in the form of pillow pak, unit pak and canisters. The odour control desiccants are designed to remove unwanted odours in the primary packaging. However, the highly porous structure of activated carbon provides a large surface area for adsorption.

The odour control desiccant is considered to be the best pharma-grade activated carbon used in pharmaceutical packaging companies to maintain the efficiency of the products. Activated carbon results in an excellent desiccant with low attrition properties.

Odour control desiccants are manufactured from several materials such as coconut shells, peat, wood, coal and fruit stones. These materials result in varying degrees of pores and distribution during activation. Therefore, using coconut shells in manufacturing creates non-dusting desiccant packets. Additionally, coconut shells are a sustainable and renewable resource.

The manufacturing process's first step includes the raw material's thermal decomposition, which produces carbonaceous with tiny pores. In the next step, the base material is activated through steam heat up to 1,1000?C.

The odour control desiccant is stable over a wide range of pH levels. Therefore, the inertness of the desiccant does not result in the decomposition of pharma products.

Frequently Asked Questions ?

Activated carbon can be incorporated into various types of packaging, such as canisters, packets, and unit pak, to adsorb volatile organic compounds, odours, and other impurities that can negatively affect the quality of pharmaceutical products.

Activated carbon is a highly porous material that attracts and captures gas molecules, including those that cause odour. When placed in packaging, activated carbon can effectively reduce or eliminate unwanted odours.

Activated carbon can help control a wide range of odours, including those caused by organic compounds, volatile chemicals, and gases.

Using activated carbon in pharmaceutical packaging can help improve the shelf life and stability of products by reducing the potential for contamination and degradation. It can also help enhance the overall safety and efficacy of pharmaceutical products.

The lifespan of activated carbon depends on a variety of factors, including the type and amount of carbon used, the size and shape of the packaging, and the conditions in which it is stored. In general, activated carbon can remain effective for weeks or even months.

Yes, activated carbon is considered safe for use in pharmaceutical packaging. It is non-toxic and does not interact with drugs or other products in the packaging. However, it is important to use the appropriate type and amount of carbon to avoid any potential contamination.
