Getting medications into the hands of patients in need is a long, complex journey. Drugmakers must demonstrate safety and efficacy before scaling up production, which requires manufacturing processes that uphold purity and cleanliness.

Take your pharmaceutical application to new performance levels with SHF Inc. fittings and adapters. We produce fluid control devices from robust, sanitary, and corrosion-resistant stainless steel, enhancing equipment and process media transfer line functionality and longevity.

Improved Patient Treatment Requires High-Quality Materials 

The creation of medications involves moving steam and liquids under compression and at high temperatures. Chemicals used in manufacturing can be corrosive, abrasive, and hazardous to the touch.

Pharmaceutical manufacturers can benefit from integrating stainless steel fittings and adapters into their production lines. This family of iron-based alloys is tough, corrosion-resistant, and hygienic. While exact performance characteristics vary by grade, typical traits are:

  • Aesthetic appearance
  • Doesn’t rust
  • Durable
  • Withstands heat
  • Resists fire
  • Sanitary
  • Nonmagnetic, in specific grades
  • Recyclable
  • Resists impact

The chromium content of stainless steel forms an invisible, self-healing oxide film on its exterior. A nonporous surface blocks moisture intrusion, reducing places where mold, mildew, and fungus can grow. The application of a simple antibacterial cleaner eliminates harmful bacteria and viruses.
