Click to Enlarge

The pharmaceutical industry has an established guideline for its surface finish requirements, detailed in the ASME BPE (The American Society of Mechanical Engineers - Bioprocessing Equipment) specification. You can learn more in our discussion of electropolishing to BPE standards.

The pharmaceutical industry has identified the impact and importance of surface finish for high purity systems like pharmaceutical equipment. Surface finish is critical to producing and maintaining sterile equipment and systems. The proper surface finish requirements will reduce product adhesion and improve corrosion resistance, both of which reduce downtime and lower costs. Harrison Electropolishing specializes in electropolishing, mechanical polishing, passivating, de-rouging and cleaning of pharmaceutical equipment and other high purity processing equipment.
