Weighing Scales for the Pharmaceutical & Healthcare Industry

MWS has been providing equipment and support to Pharmaceutical and Household product manufacturers for a number of years. We offer a full range of solutions for pharmaceutical and healthcare clients from pilot plant projects through to large scale process weighing systems and end of line automatic checkweighers and metal detectors manufactured by partners in Italy.

Typically, clients operating in this industry require the highest level of equipment and support to ensure their manufactured products meet stringent regulations issued by organisations such as the United Kingdom’s Regulatory Agency MHRA.

Weighing systems utilised by organisations conducting trials of pharmaceuticals use MWS for traceable UKAS calibration of laboratory balances accurate to 7 decimal places of a gram.

Pharmaceutical Weighing Solutions

Hygienic considerations feature heavily in weighing products tailored for the pharmaceutical and healthcare industry. To ensure we meet the critical higher demands required by pharmaceutical and healthcare clients, we offer an additional range of finishes such as mechanical polishing and electro polishing to reach a sub 0.89μ (micron) finish.

The Electro polishing process combines an electric current and chemicals to remove surface material from the stainless steel. This is an effective method for the removal of burrs caused during the manufacturing process, fold marks, inclusions in the material and other abnormalities commonly found. As part of the process, we always bead blast 2B stainless steel prior to the Electro Polish process. Electro polishing leaves the surface extremely smooth, making the scale far easier to clean.

ATEX Scales

Within the MWS range are a number of ATEX weighing products with intrinsically safe protection to Zone 1, Zone 2, Zone 21 and Zone 22 areas.

As part of the MWS supply process, we carry out IQ/OQ/PQ verification and validation to check the product supplied meets requirements and specifications and that it fulfils its intended purpose.

UKAS Calibration and Service

We provide a range of support services such as traceable UKAS calibration and Minimum Weight testing for measuring the performance of weighing equipment. Also available from MWS via laboratory manufacturing partners is equipment meeting CFR21 standards.

Process Weighing

MWS also supplies partners involved in the development of process equipment that require an element of weighing. We offer integration into systems that use PLCs for control such as batch weighers, for example.

At MWS we have the knowledge and experience to ensure projects featuring load cells are done right the first time.
