Water in its purest form
Water is the basic raw material in the pharmaceutical and biotech industry, and water and other purified media are vital constituents in numerous processes in this sector. BWT has specialist expertise in meeting these highest of standards and, with over 50 years’ experience, we are the world’s lead-
ing supplier of critical purified media. We develop systems that transform drinking water into BWT Purified Water and water for injections, and which ensure safe storage and distribution. BWT also provides services that guarantee the safe and reliable operation of the system for decades ahead.
Purified Media and Applications
Water from BWT enables you to live a healthy life every day, whether you’re cleaning your teeth in the morning, shampooing your hair in the shower or applying body lotion, not to mention the foam for your morning shave. BWT is everywhere in your daily life: in eyedrops and lubricants for contact lenses, headache tablets after an exhausting day, vaccinations for your next trip abroad or inoculations for your dog, cat and other pets.
Purified Water/WFI from BWT is also used in medicinal applications, including, for example, insulin for diabetics, the manufacture of cardiac pacemakers or prostheses and artificial joints in the medical technology sector and life-saving infusions. Purity and safety have the highest priority, not only in hospitals and laboratories, but also in homeopathic products, where Purified Water/WFI contributes to wellbeing and health.
Purified Water/WFI is an essential element in all these areas; it is both a solvent and carrier medium in the end-product and is also required for cleaning and rinsing packaging and production systems. Varying degrees of purity therefore exist: purified water (or aqua purificata) and water for injections (or aqua ad iniectabilia). Strict regulations and guidelines guarantee water safety for the end user.
