Aqua-Chem, Inc. Announces 2nd Generation Ambient WFI/PW System

[Introducing Torrent TM - the Future of Pharmaceutical Manufacturing is Cool]

Knoxville, TN: Aqua-Chem, Inc. announces the launch of the Torrent product line - our second-generation Ambient Water for Injection/Purified Water (WFI/PW) system. This product line provides complete solutions for compendial water applications. From WFI/PW generation to storage and distribution, all the bases are covered. Torrent is focused on consistently and efficiently generating water that meets or exceeds FDA standards, with a lower total cost of ownership than many other technologies on the market. As a membrane-based solution, Torrent carries a lower initial capital investment and operates at lower energy consumption than thermal processes, enabling a faster return on investment.

The Torrent product line was designed with the user in mind, delivering reliability, quality, and ease of operation. The product line features modular “plug-and-play” designs built on stainless-steel frames with sanitary tubing, NSF 61-approved materials, and <25.0 μin Ra wetted components for product water. An oversized 15-inch HMI screen makes it easy to quickly assess equipment status. Remote diagnostics and 24/7 post-sales support mean complete coverage for our customers.

We focused on creating the best possible owner experience – from low capital and operational costs to reliability, uptime, and user experience – we have designed a line of systems that checks all the boxes for compendial water production.

“We are very excited about the improvements we’ve made to the Torrent product line; these systems are versatile and can handle a variety of feedwater conditions while being highly energy efficient and delivering a low total cost of ownership. Torrent is a great addition to our pharmaceutical product line,” says Gary Edwards, President & CEO of Aqua-Chem. “Aqua-Chem is always looking for innovative solutions to provide clean water in the most sustainable manner possible.”

Key Innovations of Aqua-Chem’s Torrent product line include:

  • Modular “plug-and-play” design
  • Stainless steel frame and enclosures with large 15-inch HMI screen
  • Fully automated operation with 21 CFR Part 11 and GAMP 5 ready control system
  • Remote diagnostics & 24/7 post-sales support
  • Made in the USA

Aqua-Chem’s Torrent products are available immediately and can be customized to fit seamlessly into your water purification systems.
