Pharmaceuticol manufacturers demand high qualify water with the fewest dissolved solids possible, to promote product consistency. A Canadian manufacturer of pharmaceutical/personal core products was looking to maintain water quality specifications to promote product consistency and improve product shelf life.

First the source water for the manufacturing plont comes from a municipal water supply. The influent water has hardness (Calcium and Magnesium hardness) of approximately 6 to 8 grains per gallon. The municipal supply is also chlorinated. The company needed multi megaohm-cm quality water with a microbiologicol requirement for its production process.

After a thorough review Culligan recommended a comprehensive solution including a pre-treatment carbon filter, a reverse osmosis system, a storage system, deionizers, a 0.2 micron filter and an ultraviolet (UV) unit.

The Culligan solution helps the facility maintain water quality standards promoting product consistency and improving product shelf life. Furthermore, the portable exchange deionizers deliver quality water, without a capital investment reducing costs. This system also reduces on-site labor and regenerant chemical handling. The Culligan solution also provides single-source responsibility including equipment, service and technical know-how. Finally, the system can be upgraded as the production requirements of the facility change.

We ask the right questions so you get the right solution.

Our consultative approach begins with a Culligan professional working with you to identify your specific water quality needs. By understanding these needs we can customize a system that gives you everything you require and nothing you don't - saving you money and helping you increase your return on investment (ROD. At Culligan, we take pride in working closely with our customers so we can provide comprehensive industrial water treatment solutions.


Working closely with the pharmaceutical/personal care product manufacturer, Culligan proposed an innovative solution to promote the quality standards at the facility. The Culligan solution allows the facility to use municipal water, treated with a combination of modular water treatment technologies. The solution includes a pre-treatment carbon filter, a reverse osmosis system, a storage system, deionizers, a 0.2 micron filter ond on ultraviolet (UV) unit.

The first component of the Culligan solution is the carbon filter. The city water is chlorinated. Chlorine in the supply water can produce unpleasant odor, which con show up in final product formulations. The carbon filter reduces organics and chlorine in the water supply.

The second component includes the reverse osmosis system and the storage tank. The thin film composite (TFC) reverse osmosis membranes are used to reduce total dissolved solids (TDS) in the water supply. Product water from the reverse osmosis system is sent to the storage tank, so that an ample supply of water is available for peak demand conditions.

The third component of the system is a train of mixed bed deionizers. Deionizers reduce total dissolved solids (TDS) from water to achieve multi megaohm-cm quality water. Furthermore, the portable exchange systems are serviced by the Culligan dealer, reducing onsite labor and chemical handling.

The fourth component includes the 0.2 micron filler and the ultraviolet (UV) unit. The 0.2 micron filter and UV reduce the growth of microorganisms and bacteria.

All in oil, the water treatment solution promotes product quality at the facility.
