Unit Operation
There are three methods of preparing Tablets. These are:

Wet granulation
Dry granulation (also called slugging) and
Direct compression

Each of these methods has its advantages and disadvantages. The first two step of milling
and mixing of the formulation are identical, but thereafter the processes differ, Each
individual operations of the process is known as unit operation.

Rapid Mixing Granulator (RMG)

RMG was developed for pharmaceutical and chemical industry. With the help of MRG
wet sifting is generally no longer necessary. After the mixing of dry components, wet granulation
occurs (without transfer of dry mixture) producing loose granules in RMG. RMG is specifically
designed to meet the GMP requirements of the pharmaceutical industries.
Fluid Bed Dryer (FBD)
In FBD, the fluidized air steam is introduced by a fan or a blower mounted at the top of
the apparatus. The air is heated to a required temperature in the air heater and flows upwards
through the wet materials, which remains in a drying chamber fitted with a wire mesh supported

at the bottom. By this process, the material is suspended and agitated in a warm air steam while
the granulation is maintained in motion.
Vibro Sifter with Loader
Sifter is an instrument used to sieve the ingredients of the tablet with a replicable mess
ware. In this technique, particles of power mess are placed on a screen made of uniform aperture.
The sifter is attached with vibrator that helps in sieving the materials through the meshwork. The
mechanism of action is to loosen the parking of particle in contact with screen surface,
permitting entrapped sub sieve particles to the screen surface.
Communiting Mill
Communiting mill is used for wet and dry granulation, pulverization or dispersion of
product or ingredients in pharmaceutical, chemical, bulk drug food and other industries. It
consists of stainless steel hopper through which the product slide into the enclosed chamber,
where it is milled between beater and reduced to required size and finally collected in a

Conta Blender
The Conta blender gives better efficiency as compared to conventional blenders.
Tumbling principle in partial void enables the homogeneous mixing of active ingredients,
additives and raw materials. The rotation of bunker in a diagonally eccentric plane ensures
efficient blending.

This step involves consistent flow of an adequately lubricated, uniform blend, into dies
where the granules are being compressed into tablets. Compression is to be carried out as per
batch manufacturing record. Collect the samples at various stages i.e. at start up, high RPM, low
RPM, low weight at target speed, high weight at target speed, initial, middle and end of
compression and carry out the testing of content uniformity and physical parameters such as
hardness, thickness, friability etc.In compression stage three batches i.e. Batch No I, II and III
shall be considered for validation. Compression results of all the batches are well within the
acceptance criteria results of the compression at different speed, low weight at target speed, high
weight at target speed, initial, middle and end of the compression.

For increase production, rotary machine offers a great advantage. A head carrying a
number of sets of punches and dies revolves continuously while tablet granulation runs from the
hopper,through a feed frame and into the dies placed in a large, steel plate revolving under it.
This method promotes a uniform fill of the die and therefore an accurate weight for the tablet.
Compression takes place as the upper and lower punches passes between a pair of rollers. This
action produce a squeezing effect on the material in the die cavity from the top and bottom and
so gives a chance for the entrapped air to escape. The lower punch lifts up and ejects tablet. The
punches and dies can be removed for inspection, cleaning and inserting different sets to produce
a great variety of shapes and sizes.

Tablets may be coated for a variety of reasons, including protection of the ingredients
from air, moisture, or light. Tablets are also coated to protect the drug against decomposition or
to disguise or minimize the unpleasant taste of certain medicaments. Coating also enhances the
appearance of tablets and makes them more readily identifiable. In addition, coatings can be
resistant to gastric juices but readily dissolve in the small intestine. These enteric coatings can
protect drugs against decomposition in the acid environment of the stomach.
Coating is to be carried out as per batch manufacturing record. Samples are collected at
the end of coating stage and carried out the testing of content uniformity and identification tests,
related substances, individual impurities, and physical parameters such as hardness, thickness,
friability, etc. In coating stage three batches i.e. Batch No I, II and III shall be considered for
validation. Coating results of all the batches are well within the acceptance criteria.
Types of coating include:
Sugar coating
Film coating
Modified coating
Sugar Coating:- The sugarcoating process involves building up layers of coating material on the
tablet cores as they are tumbled in a revolving pan by repetitively applying a coating solution or
suspension and drying off the solvent. Before sugarcoating, the core is coated with a sealing coat
of shellac, PVP*-stabilized types of shellac, or other polymeric materials, such as cellulose
acetate phthalate and polyvinyl acetate phthalate. The next stage is to build up a sub coat that
will provide a good bridge between the main coating and the sealed core, as well as round off
any sharp corners. This step is followed by smoothing or grossing. The finishing stage is
accomplished by again applying one or two layers of clear syrup. The tablets are then left for

several hours before being transferred to the polishing pan. The polish is a dilute wax solution
(e.g., carnauba or beeswax in petroleum spirit) applied sparingly until a high luster is produced.
Film Coating :- Film coating has increased in popularity for various reasons. The film process is
simpler and, therefore, easier to automate. It is also faster than sugarcoating, since weight gains
of only 2 to 6% are involved, as opposed to more than 50% with sugarcoating. Two major
groups of film coating materials may be distinguished:
(a) Those that are non-enteric and, for the most part, cellulose derivatives, and
(b) Those that can provide an enteric effect and are commonly esters of phthalic acid.
Films may contain a plasticizer that prevents the film from becoming brittle with
consequent risk of chipping. Until recently, alcohols, esters, chlorinated hydrocarbons, and
ketones have been among the most frequently used types of solvents. However, because of
increasing regulatory pressures against undesirable solvents, there has been a pronounced trend
toward aqueous film coating.
Modified-Release Coating: - A coating may be applied to a tablet to modify the release pattern
of the active ingredient. Two general categories, enteric coating and controlled-release coating,
are distinguished. The former are insoluble in the low pH environment of the stomach but
dissolve readily in the small intestine with its elevated pH. They are used to minimize irritation
of the gastric mucosa by certain drugs and to protect others that are degraded by gastric juices.


Packing is the technology of enclosing or protecting product for distribution, storage, sale,
and use. Packaging is also refers to the process of designing, evaluating, and producing
packages. Packaging can be described as a coordinated system of preparing goods for transport,
warehousing, logistics, sale, and end use. It is sometimes convenient to categorize packages by
layer or functions.
o Primary Packaging
o Secondary Packaging
o Tertiary Packaging
PRIMARY PACKAGING: Primary packaging is the material that first envelope the product and
holds it. This usually is the smallest unit of distribution or use and is the package which is in
direct contact with the content.
SECONDARY PACKAGING: Secondary packaging is outside the primary packing, and may be
used to prevent pilferage or to group primary packages together.

Training Report | Cadila Pharmaceutical Limited

TERTIARY PACKING: These are used for bulk handling, warehouse storage and transport
shipping. The most common form of palletized unit load that packs tightly into containers.
a. Blister Packing: This is useful for packaging of unit dose of pharmaceuticals. This
packing mode has been used extensively for several good reasons. It is a packaging
configuration capable of providing excellent environmental protection, coupled with an
aesthetically pleasing and efficacious appearance. It also provides user functionally in
terms of convenience, child resistance and now temperature resistance. The blister
package is formed by heat softening a sheet of thermoplastic resin and vacuum drawing
the softened sheets of plastic into a contoured mould. After coming, the sheet is released
from the mould and proceeds to the filling station of the packaging machine. The semirigid blister previously formed, is filled with the product and lidded with a heat sealable
backing material. The backing material can be either a push through or peelable type.
For a push through type of blister, the backing material is usually heat seal coated
aluminum foil.
b. Strip Packing:The strip packing is done by aluminum foil or glassine poly paper. A
strip package is formed by feeding two webs of a heat sealable flexible film through
either a heated crimping roller or a heated reciprocating platen. The product is dropped
into the pocket formed prior to forming the final set of seals. A continuous set of packets
is formed, generally several packets wide depending on the packaging machines
limitations. The strip of packets is cut to the desired number of packets in length. The
strips formed are usually collected and packed into a folding carton. The product sealed
between the two sheets of film usually has a seal around each tablet, with perforations
usually separating adjacent packets.
c. Bulk Packing: The packaging of the final product is done in paper cartons, manually,
and is finally sealed using an automatic sealer. The machine can seal cartons.

Encapsulation is the process of manufacture of capsules. Capsules are solid dosage forms
in which the drug substance is enclosed in either hard or soft, soluble form of gelatin.
Hard gelatin capsule
Soft gelatin capsule
It is referred to as dry filled capsule; consist of two sections, one slipping over the other,
thus completely surrounding the drug formulation.
It is a soft, globular, gelatin shell, somewhat thicker than that of hard gelatin capsules.
The gelation is plasticized by the addition of glycerin, sorbitol, or a similar polyol.
The hard capsule is also called two pieces as it consists of two pieces in the form of
small cylinders closed at one end, the shorter piece is called the cap which fits over the open
end of the longer piece, called the body. The soft gelatin capsule is also called as one piece.
Capsules are available in many sizes to provide dosing flexibility. Unpleasant drug tastes and
odors can be masked by the tasteless gelatin shell. The administration of liquid and solid drugs
enclosed in hard gelatin capsules is one of the most frequently utilized dosage forms.
Filling of hard gelatin capsules:
a) Removal of caps
b) Filling of the bodies,
c) Replacement of caps, and
d) Ejection of filled capsules

Sam Higginbottom Institute of Agriculture, Technology & Sciences (SHIATS) Allahabad.


Training Report | Cadila Pharmaceutical Limited

Capsules are delivered into the perforated capsule filling ring. The ring is rotated on a
turntable, and a vacuum pulls the bodies into the lower half of the ring, leaving the caps
in the upper half of the ring.
The top & bottom halves of the filling ring are separated manually, and the cap half of the
ring is set aside.
The body half of the ring is then moved to another turntable where it is rotated
mechanically under a powder hopper.
The hopper contains an auger which feeds the powder into the bodies.
When the capsule bodies are filled, the cap and body rings are rejoined.

A softgel is an oral dosage form\ for medicine similar to capsules. They consist of a










of gelatin, water, opacifier and a plasticiser such as glycerin or sorbitol. Softgels are produced in
a process known as encapsulation using the Rotary Die Encapsulation process invented by
Robert Pauli Scherer. The encapsulation process has been described as a form/fill/seal process.
Two flat ribbons of shell material are manufactured on the machine and brought together on a
twin set of rotating dies.
Cadilapharmaceuticals commissioned a modern sophisticated manufacturing facility for
soft gelatin capsules at jammu complex. Designed to meet the most stringent international
standards, all operations in this plants from encapsulation to packaging, are carried out under
class 100,000. All systems are validated to meet international FDA standards, and the present
capacity of one million capsules per day can be doubled with marginal investments.

Quality control is the part of GMP concerned with sampling, specification and testing
and with organization; documentation and release procedures which ensure that necessary and
relevant tests are carried out and that materials are not released for sale or supply, until their
quality has been judged satisfactory. Quality Control (QC) laboratory ensures that the products
are pure, safe and effective and are released only after thorough analysis as per stringent
specifications, methods and procedures developed according to international guidelines viz. EU
cGMP, MHRA, WHO, TGA, etc.
One of the most important elements in QC laboratory programme is the quality and
assurance of the standard, which are used. The standard can be broadly defined into two

Reference standard or primary standard

Working standard or secondary standard

The working standard are those obtained from reliable source and whose purity and
strength have been optimized through test, generally compared with the reference
standard. The quality control section performs different control measure and test

procedures to verify the product and material quality. The tests are performed by the QC
personnel and the results are matched with a reference standard.
Quality control is an essential operation of the pharmaceutical industry. Drugs must
be marketed as safe and therapeutically active formulations whose performance is
consistent and predictable. New and better medicinal agents are being produced at an
accelerated rate. At the same time more exacting and sophisticated analytical methods are
being developed for their evaluation
Different types of test are performed for different material. The types of test performed for each
material are as follows1.

The Guide to the Inspection of Pharmaceutical Quality Control Laboratories provided
very limited guidance on the matter of inspection of microbiological laboratories. While that
guide addresses many of the issues associated with the chemical aspect of laboratory analysis of
pharmaceuticals, this document will serve as a guide to the inspection of the microbiology
analytical process. As with any laboratory inspection, it is recommended that an analyst
(microbiologist) who is familiar with the tests being inspected participate in these inspections.
Following processes are carried out in microbiology laboratory:

Sterility Testing

Antimicrobial Efficacy Testing (AET)

Microbial Limits Testing

Bioburden Determination

Endotoxin (LAL) Testing

Environmental Monitoring and Identification

Water Analysis


For a variety of reasons, we have seen a number of problems associated with the
microbiological contamination of topical drug products, nasal solutions and inhalation products.
The USP Microbiological Attributes Chapter <1111> provides little specific guidance other than
"The significance of microorganisms in non-sterile pharmaceutical products should be evaluated
in terms of the use of the product, the nature of the product, and the potential hazard to the user."
The USP recommends that certain categories be routinely tested for total counts and specified
indicator microbial contaminants. For example natural plant, animal and some mineral products
for Salmonella, oral liquids for E. Coli, topical for P. aeruginosa and S. Aureus, and articles

intended for rectal, urethral, or vaginal administration for yeasts and molds. A number of specific
monographs also include definitive microbial limits
Microbiological testing may include an identification of colonies found during the Total
Aerobic Plate Count test. Again, the identification should not merely be limited to the USP
indicator organisms. The importance of identifying all isolates from either or both Total Plate
Count testing and enrichment testing will depend upon the product and its intended use.
Obviously, if an oral solid dosage form such as a tablet is tested, it may be acceptable to identify
isolates when testing shows high levels. However, for other products such as topical, inhalants or
nasal solutions where there is a major concern for microbiological contamination, isolates from
plate counts, as well as enrichment testing, should be identified.
One of the most important aspects of the inspection of a sterility analytical program is to
review records of initial positive sterility test results. Request lists of test failures to facilitate
review of production and control records and investigation reports. Particularly, for the high risk
aseptically filled product, initial positive sterility test results and investigations should be
reviewed. It is difficult for the manufacturer to justify the release of a product filled aseptically
that fails an initial sterility test without identifying specific problems associated with the controls
used for the sterility test.
Examine the use of negative controls. They are particularly important to a high quality
sterility test. Good practice for such testing includes the use of known terminally sterilized or
irradiated samples as a system control. Alternatively, vials or ampules filled during media fills
have also been used.Be especially concerned about the case where a manufacturer of aseptically
filled products has never found an initial positive sterility test. While such situations may occur,
they are rare. In one case, a manufacturer's records showed that they had never found a positive
result; their records had been falsified. Also, the absence of initial positives may indicate that the
test has not been validated to demonstrate that there is no carryover of inhibition from the
product or preservative.
Confirmation, through the provision of objective evidence, that the requirements for a
specific intended use or application have been fulfilled.
Validation is one of the important steps in achieving and maintaining the quality of the
final product. If each step of production process is validated we can assure that the final product
is of the best quality. Validation of the individual steps of the processes is called the process
validation. Different dosage forms have different validation protocols
PROCESS VALIDATION: Process Validation is establishing documented evidence which

provides a high degree of assurance that a specific process will consistently produce a product
meeting its pre-determined specifications and quality characteristics.

Generation of electricity in cadila is from three sub-station red, yellow and blue (RYB)
Light arrester: -A lightning arrester is a device used on electrical power systems and
systems to protect the insulation and conductors of the system from the damaging effects
of lightning. The typical lightning arrester has a high-voltage terminal and a ground
Transformer:-Step-down unit, this transformer converts high-voltage, low-current
power into low-voltage, high-current power. The larger-gauge wire used in the secondary
winding is necessary due to the increase in current. The primary winding, which doesnt
have to conduct as much current, may be made of smaller-gauge wire.
Cadila has two step-down transformers, one which convert voltage from 66kv to
11kv and the other one which convert the voltage from 11kv to 440 volt for the industrial
Breaker:-A circuit
breaker is
operated electrical switch designed to protect an electrical circuit from damage caused
by over current or overload or short circuit. Its basic function is to interrupt current flow
after protective relays detect a fault.


Water treatment is used to optimize most water-based industrial processes, such as:
heating, cooling, processing, cleaning, and rinsing so that operating costs and risks are reduced.
Poor water treatment lets water interact with the surfaces of pipes and vessels which contain it.
Steam boilers can scale up or corrode, and these deposits will mean more fuel is needed to heat
the same amount of water. Cooling towers can also scale up and corrode, but left untreated, the
warm, dirty water they can contain will encourage bacteria to grow, and Legionnaires Disease
can be the fatal consequence. Also, water treatment is used to improve the quality of water
contacting the manufactured product e.g. semiconductors, and/or can be part of the product e.g.
beverages, pharmaceuticals, etc. In these instances, poor water treatment can cause defective
products. Domestic water can become unsafe to drink if proper hygiene measures are neglected.

Water softening: - Water softening is the removal of calcium, magnesium, and certain
other metal cat ionsin hard water. The resulting soft water is more compatible with soap
and extends the lifetime of plumbing. Water softening is usually achieved using lime
softening or ion-exchange resins.
Chilling/Steam unit:
A chiller is a machine that removes heat from a liquid via a vaporcompressionor absorption refrigeration cycle. This liquid can then be circulated
through a heat exchanger to cool equipment, or another process stream (such as
air or process water). As a necessary byproduct, refrigeration creates waste heat
that must be exhausted to ambient or, for greater efficiency, recovered for heating
purposes. Concerns in design and selection of chillers include performance,
efficiency, maintenance, and product life cycle environmental impact. In
industrial application, chilled water or other liquid from the chiller is pumped
through process or laboratory equipment. Industrial chillers are used for
controlled cooling of products, mechanisms and factory machinery in a wide
range of industries.
A boiler or steam generator is a device used to create steam by
applying heat energy to water. A boiler or steam generator is used wherever a
source of steam is required. The form and size depends on the application:
mobile steam engines such as steam locomotives, portable engines and steampowered road vehicles typically use a smaller boiler that forms an integral part of
the vehicle; stationary steam engines, industrial installations and power stations
will usually have a larger separate steam generating facility connected to the
point-of-use by piping.


An Air Handling Unit (most of the times abbreviated to AHU), or Air Handler, is a central air
conditioner station that handles the air that, usually, will be supplied into the buildings by the
ventilation ductwork (connected to the AHU).Handling the air means that the air will be
delivered into the building spaces with thermo-hygrometric and IAQ (Indoor Air Quality)
treatment. The accuracy of the treatment will depend from the specificity of each project,). This
means, the Air Handling Unit treat the air by filtering, cooling and/or heating, humidifying
and/or dehumidifying.
Industries use water that obtained from the water treatment system for a variety of purposes, such
as for manufacturing goods, heating, cooling, carrier of raw material, carrier of waste matter, as a

solvent etc. The resulting water is then classified as a wastewater.The indiscriminate discharge of
these wastewater streams into the environment can
- Render soils "sick ".
- Pollute the receiving bodies of water.
- Cause air pollution by generating obnoxious gases
To prevent any health hazards caused by discharging wastewater into the environment and
protect domestic sewage, the wastewater must be treated before discharge.
The first unit operation encountered in wastewater-treatment plants is screening. A screen is a
device with openings, generally of uniform size that is used to retain the coarse solids found in
wastewater. According to the size of openings, screens are designated as coarse or fine. Coarse
screens have openings of inch or more, and fine screens have openings of less than inch.

Oil Separation
It is a process in which Floatables, namely non-emulsified oil and organics separates from
wastewater. The design of the separator is based on the specific gravity difference between the
oil and the wastewater and between the suspended solids and wastewater. In general, this
separator can handle very large flow. However, its disadvantage is the long retention time
required for efficient oil separation.
Flow Equalization
Flow equalization is used to overcome the operational problems caused by flow variations, to
improve the performance of the downstream processes, and is also used as an emergency tank to
equalize wastewater effluent in case of any process failure in the treatment process.The design
must provide for sufficient mixing to prevent solids deposition and concentration variations and
also to provide aeration to prevent odor problems.

Sedimentation is the separation from water, by gravitational settling, of suspended particles
that are heavier than water.Sedimentation is used for separation of grit and particulate matter in
the primary settling basin, separation of biological-floc in the activated-sludge settling basin, and
separation of chemical-floc when the chemical coagulation process is used. It is also used for
solids concentration in sludge thickeners.

Industrial wastes often contain acidic or alkaline components which require neutralization
before discharge or treatment. For wastes that are discharged to receiving waters, a pH between 6
and 9 is frequently specified by regulatory agencies. For wastes entering biological treatment
processes, the pH should be maintained between 6.5 and 9 for optimum growth of the
Acidic wastes are commonly neutralized with waste alkaline streams, lime, dolomite,
ammonia, caustic soda, or soda ash.Lime is the most widely used alkaline material for
neutralization acid wastes because of its low cost. Lime may be slow to react and may form
insoluble precipitates.Alkaline wastes usually require treatment with a waste acidic stream,
sulfuric acid or hydrochloric acid.
Activated Sludge
The conventional activated sludge system contains a tank for wastewater aeration followed by
a settler and solids recycle line.The wastewater flows through under constant aeration in the
presence of activated sludge and exits at the end of the tank after 4-8 hours of residence time.
The oxygen concentration in the reactor should be 0.5-2 mg/l throughout, where values over 2
mg/l are considered lost energy.
Extended Aeration is the modified form of a conventional activated sludge process in which
the production of excess sludge is minimized by oxidation and an increase in residence time, i.e.
through the larger size of the aeration tank.The retention time is extended to 1-2 days, which
results in a very low net yield of sludge due to its consumption of endogenous respiration.

A raw material, also known as a feedstock or most correctly unprocessed material, is a basic
material that is used to produce goods, finished products, energy, or intermediate materials which
are feedstock for future finished products. As feedstock, the term connotes these materials are
bottleneck assets and are highly important with regards to producing other products.
Pharmaceutical raw materials comprise substrates or elements that are used for manufacturing
different types of drugs e.g. endocrine disorder drugs, musculoskeletal system drugs, antiinfective drugs viz. cephalexin, penicillin, ampicillin, cephradine, etc. Pharmaceutical excipients
and ingredients or raw materials used to manufacture drugs are extracted from different types of
sources. These sources could be natural or synthetic. Recently, many of the raw materials
previously derived from natural sources are being produced synthetically in part or even biotechnologically. This is so because manufacturing them artificially is economical, safer, and
much quicker. Pharmaceutical raw materials are manufactured using different types of acids,
Pharmaceutical raw materials are essential to producing pharmaceutical drugs and include
active pharmaceutical ingredients (API), also known as bulk active, are pharmaceutically active,
and have the desired pharmacological effects on the body e.g. alvimopan, sparfloxacin,
sapropterindihydrochloride, lanreotideacetate,nicotinic acid, etc. In contrast pharmaceutical
excipients are the pharmaceutically inert substances which help in delivering the active
ingredient, e.g. antiadherents, binders, coatings, disintegrants, fillers, etc.

Finished goods are goods that have completed the manufacturing process but have not
yet been sold or distributed to the end user. A good purchased as a "raw material" goes into the
manufacture of a product. A good only partially completed during the manufacturing process is
called "work in process". When the good is completed as to manufacturing but not yet sold or
distributed to the end-user, it is called a "finished good". This is the last stage for the processing
of goods. The goods are ready to be consumed or distributed. There is no processing required in
term of the goods after this stage by the seller.

Industrial training is very much essential for Pharmacy Students. It is also a great
opportunity to acquire practical knowledge. During my training period, in the industry I acquired
lots of experiences in Pharmaceutical Production and Production management. This will help me
toclarify my theoretical knowledge. I hope and pray that it will help me much in my future
During our training period, we had seen various instruments and apparatus in the
industry. The highly sophisticated instruments that work precisely must be operated with intense
care for optimum use. We could acquire a lot of information regarding the latest instruments and
their working procedures.
It was taught to us that, the CGMP guidelines are to be strictly followed in the industries
in each and every section. And the same guideline was seen followed in Cadila Pharmaceutical
Limited (J&k). It helped us to acquire knowledge on punctuality, regularity and working
environments in industries.
Training in cadila reshape my mind in different sectors based on education,
communication and interactions, zero determination of error, commercialization and many more.
