General description

Standard bulk materials often show a tendency for caking, clumping and dust formation which results in laborious weighing processes and manual de-caking processes with a negative impact on manufacturing efficiency. Due to its granulated form, granulated potassium chloride is free-flowing and easy to handle. Its greatly reduced caking behavior facilitates processability, speeds up manufacturing processes and increases operator safety.
As part of our Emprove® Program, our raw materials are offered with extensive documentation facilitating compliance of your pharma and biopharma product, full supply chain transparency and risk mitigation. Our SAFC® portfolio of high-quality products for biopharmaceutical and pharmaceutical formulation and production withstands strict quality control procedures and is produced according to applicable cGMP guidelines.

Application

Potassium chloride is a mineral salt which is used for a broad range of applications in pharmaceutical and food industry. Pharmaceutical applications are e.g. treatment of hypokalemia, or serving as a component of isotonic solutions for infusion. Beyond, potassium chloride can also serve as a strengthening agent and flavor enhancer for food and beverage.
Due to its low microbial and endotoxin limits, Potassium chloride granulated Emprove® Expert is especially suitable for high-risk applications.
May be used for the preparation of phosphate buffered saline, and for the extraction and solubilization of proteins.
