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.

Handling bulk powders at a large scale in the pharmaceutical, biopharmaceutical, and bioprocessing setting is challenging. Compared to powders, granulated materials experience far less caking, have better flowability, and are easier to handle, even after long-term storage.

Our team of scientists has experience in all areas of research including Life Science, Material Science, Chemical Synthesis, Chromatography, Analytical and many others.
