The close relationship between the pharmaceutical industry and the well-being of its consumer base necessitates strict safety and quality regulations and manufacturing guidelines. To comply with these regulations and guidelines, pharmaceutical companies observe good manufacturing practices (GMPs) for all of their equipment and processes.

Within the pharmaceutical industry, current good manufacturing practices (CGMPs) call for sanitary processing operations—including using sanitary equipment and systems—to ensure the purity, safety, and quality of the products and, consequently, the health and safety of the end users.

Our Products

At Highland Equipment, we manufacture high-quality sanitary products and systems that comply with rigorous safety and sanitation standards. Our discrete products include hoses, fittings, seals, and valves, and our systems are suitable for a wide variety of pharmaceutical operations, including:

  • Stringent sanitization
  • Various pressure, temperature, volume, and capacity processing requirements
  • Production of topical cream, injectables, liquid suspensions, and pills

All of our products and systems feature stainless steel—including 316L—construction and have received all relevant registrations and certifications, such as:

  • Technical Standards and Safety Authority (TSSA) registered
  • National Board registered
  • Canadian Standards Association (CSA) B51
  • American Society of Mechanical Engineers (ASME) Section VIII Div. 1 Boiler and Pressure Vessel Code
  • ASME “U” Stamp registered
  • ASME B31.1 and B31.3 (Power and Process Piping Code)

To facilitate cleaning operations and maintenance of a sanitary processing environment, we design and build complete systems that integrate clean-in-place (CIP) technology and advanced monitoring systems. This system design also allows you to measure production levels and efficiency.

In addition to our sanitary product and system manufacturing capabilities, we also act as experienced and knowledgeable third-party consultants for many pharmaceutical clients.

Sanitary Processing Experts

Highland Equipment builds complete process systems following industry sanitary standards such as ASME BPE, GMP and 3A. We use our own depth of professional knowledge and years of practical experience to provide pharmaceutical companies assurance our equipment will comply with their stringent industry regulations for Health and Safety and sanitary manufacturing processes.

Highland Equipment designs and builds complete CIP systems that provide our customers the ability to add the benefits of clean-in-place (CIP) technology into their product manufacturing processes for pills, ointments, injectables, consumables, and more. Clean-in-place systems are designed to use a mix of cleaning and sanitizing chemicals, heat, and water to thoroughly cleanse process pipes, vessels, and machinery “in place.” Cleaning “in place” benefits pharmaceutical manufacturers by removing the risk of re-contaminating equipment during reassembly after “out of place” cleaning as well as from the additional costs in time and labor associated with “out of place” cleaning.

A Leader in Pharmaceutical Processing Equipment

At Highland Equipment, we are an industry leader in the design, manufacture, and installation of sanitary pharmaceutical processing equipment. While we strictly comply with all applicable safety and sanitary guidelines and regulations, the quality we provide our clients goes beyond codes and standards. Our combination of world-class orbital welding and stainless steel fabrication capabilities and years of sanitary design and build expertise makes us the perfect partner for any project within the pharmaceutical industry.
