Knoxville, TN, April 25, 2012 – Aqua-Chem, Inc., the leader in global water solutions, has designed, manufactured, and sold its newest pharmaceutical vapor compression distillation unit capable of producing 6,000 gallons per hour for water-for-injection.

Aqua-Chem equipment has produced high-quality water for pharmaceutical and biotech applications, and the new Vapor Compression Distillation unit “PR 6000” is the largest in the family of Vapor Compression units offered by Aqua-Chem, which also includes the PR 600 and PR 2500 Vapor Compression units. “We continually strive to innovate and advance our technology, and the development of the PR 6000, which is capable of producing 6000 gallons of pure water per hour, is consistent with our efforts to deliver high-quality custom applications for our clients that suits their needs,” said Aqua-Chem President and CEO David Gensterblum.

Aqua-Chem has already supplied several units for operation in the international pharmaceutical and bioscience market place. Additionally, we have two more units that have been sold to another major international biotech company and are in the process of being installed. “We have been very pleased with the demand for the new VC unit. Our clients find that this unit offers a new solution to their pure water needs at the volume that can handle their capacity,” added Gensterblum.

The PR 6000 Vapor Compression Unit produces large volumes of high purity water that is consistent and reliable for water-for-injection for parenteral solutions, cell culture growth, vaccines and other critical applications. The patented Spray-Film evaporator design provides a variety of qualities that make it unique and reliable, such as the dual and single compressor design and the direct drive low speed compressor. In addition, the PR-6000 has built-in on-line cleaning that reduces maintenance costs and increases operating life. The design is improved to enhance safety and provides easy access from the floor level with the compressor pumps located at the edge of the skid for easy serviceability.
