Objective of the Visit:
The objective of an industrial visit is to provide the students with an insight into the internal working of companies. We all perfectly understand that theoretical knowledge is just not enough for a successful professional career. It is here that by going beyond academics, industrial visit provides students with a much relevant practical perspective of the actual workplace and the larger world of business. All this makes the importance of Industrial visits all too evident.
The visit was divided into two departments.
First, one includes the sterilization of packaging material used in parenteral, carried forward by production and packaging that consists of both liquid injections and dry injections.
The second phase of the visit includes the dispensing area of raw material, how the granules are prepared from the raw material, through a Rapid mixer granulator and Fluidized Bed Dryer, coating of tablets by the double rotatory compressor, and coating. Lastly primary packaging of tablets containing leaflets and finally the storage of finished goods in the warehouse.
