Pharma & Biotech Water in its Purest Form Pharma & Biotech

BWT is the world’s leading supplier of systems for the production, storage and distribution of purified media in the pharma and biotech industry.


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.

The BWT OSMOTRON sup­plies purified water at the high­est phar­ma­ceu­ti­cal level, com­bin­ing all the process steps required to pro­duce purified water: soft­en­ing, reverse osmo­sis and SEP­TRON elec­trodeion­i­sa­tion, includ­ing mon­i­tor­ing and con­trol. The result is safe and clean BWT Puri­fied Water.


Lead­ing phar­ma­ceu­ti­cal com­pa­nies, cos­met­ics man­u­fac­tur­ers and many other busi­nesses depend on the BWT OSMOTRON, which is the most suc­cess­ful stan­dard­ised, com­pact sys­tem for the pro­duc­tion of purified water with over 1,000 sys­tems in oper­a­tion world­wide.


The SEPT­RON is an electrodeonisation module developed and patented specifically for the pharmaceutical industry by BWT.

The system also has an integrated final ultra­fil­tra­tion process to ensure the highest microbiological safety and purity.
