Pharmaceutical Packaging Handbook

A complete overview of the role that packaging plays in the development and delivery of pharmaceuticals and medical devices. Including a thorough examination of the industry in size and scope, this source gives an introduction drug dosage forms, vaccines, biologically produced products, and medical foods to the reader.

Pharmaceutical Packaging Handbook is the most complete and straightforward text on the market today and also lists information in an easy to follow fashion, making it a complete stand-alone reference for anyone working in the pharmaceutical industry.

discusses how packaging is designed and integrated into the product development cycle has an overview of the regulatory environment procedures provides the reader with a basic introduction into key aspects of navigating the regulations describing the materials used to package pharmaceuticals, including glass, metal, plastics, flexible films, rubbers and elastomers comments on some new hybrids used for packaging, with a short introduction to plastics, their makeup, and typical uses in packaging explores the processing techniques used with the materials to produce pharmaceutical containers and some of the strengths and weaknesses of the processes used for container fabrication introduces the reader to retort, aseptic, gas, and radiation sterilization of product discusses labeling and design for pharmaceuticals including how labels are produced, materials used, and production techniques.

Food Plant Design

Although chemical engineering and food technology are subject areas closely related to food processing systems and food plant design, coverage of the design of food plants is often sporadic and inadequately addressed in food technology and engineering books.

Some books have attempted to treat food engineering from this dual point of view but, most have not achieved balanced coverage of the two. Focusing on food processing, rather than chemical plants, Food Plant Design presents precise design details with photos and drawings of different types of food processing plants, including food processing systems, refrigeration and steam systems, conveying systems, and buildings. The authors discuss the subject in an ordered format that gives you the tools to produce food products with minimum cost.

Including modeling procedures for food processing systems and auxiliary systems, they elucidate synthesis techniques and procedures. Using a clear structure for different levels of information and data on different food processing alternatives, the book outlines solutions to plant design problems in the context of overall optimization of an agro-industrial system and corresponding food chain.

It provides the work procedures and techniques for solving the design problems of a food processing plant and in making a defined food product.
