The safest methods in producing Water for Injection are the two distillation processes: Vapor Compression (Bram-Cor STMC range) and Multiple Effect distillation systems (Bram-Cor SMPT range). This site is dedicated to MED technology. Bram-Cor multi effect stills are designed and manufactured according to cGMP to produce compendial Water for Injection (WFI). Each unit contains a number of boiling columns (or effects) with the first column producing pure steam, which is condensed and re-distilled in the following columns, decreasing the operational costs.

Each component is identified by a unique TAG, engraved on metal plate, for total traceability in the relevant technical documentation. Functional testing is ensured by automation experts, with special care for monitoring of critical parameters. Documentation, inspection and field testing are included in our project management. Capacities range: from 50 to 15,000 kg/h.

Destination of use Production of Water for Injection for pharmaceutical use. The SMPT distillers (from 3 to 10 columns) produce sterile and free from pyrogen water, in accordance with cGMP and FDA regulations.
Technology Each unit contains boiling columns (or effects) with the first column producing pure steam, which is condensed in the following column decreasing the operational costs,or used as PS. The higher the quantity of columns, the lower overall the consumption of the equipment. The quantity of columns therefore does not influence the quality nor the output of the equipment.

Communication system Bram-Cor automation systems can virtually communicate with all network partners through maximum security protocol (Ethernet, Profinet, OPC Unified Architecture, …)


• Teleservice (malfunctions managed remotely by Bram-Cor)

• Remote Control (customer operator receives a message / a text message / a warning mail)

• Server-side data centralization (customer can centralize data on his service, or Bram-Cor provides it)

Sterilization Sterilization can be performed as one-shot selection before production start or as a single phase, to be periodically performed on the WFI system.
