Nowhere is air filtration more important than in healthcare and pharmaceutical facilities. If you work in any sort of healthcare or pharmaceutical facility, you understand that the level of airborne infectious contaminants increases proportionately with the increased population density of infected individuals. But, we know these concerns are not limited to hospitals.
Two concerns are critical when handling pharmaceutical dusts: Personnel exposure to potent, toxic or allergenic dusts, and the explosion properties of the dusts. We’d like to share with you our expertise in the life science, healthcare and pharma industries to help you find the best solution for your very sensitive industry.
Dust collection systems are all safety devices and thus state-of-the art modern methods of validation and certification are required. Furthermore it is vital to ensure that the system is still in compliance after perhaps changed process conditions, to provide maximum safety for personnel and the facility. It is also recommended to carry out quality audits, process reliability surveys and annual safety inspections.Manufacturing and Machinery Food and beverage Life science and healthcare
Oral solid dosage products (OSD) such as tablets, pills or capsules contains Active Pharmaceutical Ingredients. These API create very fine dusts and often high solvent concentrations during the product handling and manufacturing processes. To protect worker´s health and to avoid cross-contamination of products, an effective filtration combined with containment solutions is required.Life science and healthcare
CamCarb VG modules with loose-fill media are robust solutions suited for make-up air (outdoor air) and recirculation air systems. The primary use is the control of acidic gases that are responsible for the corrosion of electronics and electrical equipment in heavy process industries such as pulp and paper mills, petrochemical refineries, mining and metal refining operations, and wastewater treatment plants.
In many instances, pharmaceutical and chemical manufacturing involves the handling and processing of powder or granular ingredients, many of which have exposure or explosion risks attached when in dust form. A comprehensive risk assessment of each and every application is essential before evaluating the appropriate dust control solution.
To mitigate exposure and explosion risks in pharmaceutical workspaces, you have to fully understand the application and the processed ingredients. Dust testing and a hazard analysis will provide more specific information about particle size and explosive properties of your dust and thereby to determine the right extraction solution for your needs.
Not all people who purchase our products are experts in air filtration and they shouldn’t have to be either. The purpose of Camfil City is to give everyone a chance to learn the basics of what our clean air solutions can do for them.
Dealing with airborne odours, toxins and gases can be a big challenge. Learn about how Molecular Contamination Control and how it can protect against the harmful effects of these airborne contaminants.
When hospitals choose filter solutions for ventilation, their focus should be efficiency and reliability. Often cheaper solutions do not offer high-efficiency removal, energy savings, robustness and long terms reliability.
the technical service department at Deventer hospital received complaints several times a year about unwanted diesel odours in different parts of the hospital building. Headaches was one the key problem among the laboratory staff. In operating rooms, the problem was significant because the air is circulated directly from the exhaust vent onto the operating table.
Clean air plays an imperative role in the life science, healthcare and pharmaceutical process chain. Many studies have inferred that in moderate levels of air pollution the damage to human health is irreversible. In the life science industry where biological life or living organisms are at play, it is vital to maintain utmost hygiene along with superior indoor air quality. Camfil’s high-efficiency air filtration solutions are used by many global life science industry specialists in cleanrooms, production areas, and laboratories, including many global biosafety labs around the world.
In a scientific debate, WHO has acknowledged that in the case of COVID-19, airborne transmission could not be ruled out in crowded, closed or poorly ventilated settings. Scientists across the world are looking for more evidence as it may affect many guidelines in the crowded indoor environment.
Every business depends on its surrounding environment and understanding the needs truly depends on identifying the problems. One fact that will remain unchanged even after the COVID-19 pandemic storm settles is that 'air travels'. It is important to highlight the potential risks surrounding the business such as air pollution.
Camfil provides a steady supply of respiratory masks to Sweden’s hardest-hit region. We are currently delivering 100,000 respiratory protection masks each week to the local health authorities in Stockholm area. These will be distributed to frontline health workers across the region. In total, we will produce 5 million respiratory protection masks.
HEPA filtration is required in a range of different Industries from Pharmaceuticals, Hospitals, Microelectronics and even the Food and Beverage Industry. Learn about the changing trends in HEPA filtration requirements, How HEPA filtration has advanced over the last number of years and how to identify and reduce the associated costs to your clean air requirements
Combating the virus in the air. Maintaining a good level of hygiene and covering the mouth with a mask are good ways to stay protected but is this enough? Maintaining a hygienic and sanitary environment along with protection from those infected are vital as the virus thrives in contaminated conditions.
The new Absolute V HEPA range of air filters is all about making your life simpler, safer and more eco friendly. This is achieved by offering you filters that are extremely light-weight, robust and easy to handle. Filters that provide world-leading protection for your operations.
St James Hospital Prevents Aspergillus. Healthcare facilities must maintain the highest levels of cleanliness to promote health and healing. Camfil provides air cleaners for these environments. St. James Hospitaal in Dublin used Camfil for Aspergillus prevention.
Case Study: Camtain Contains Explosive Pharma Dust. A multinational pharmaceutical company needed a dust extraction system for their new tableting suite in Spain. The suite comprised of six rooms, each with its own tablet machine that created explosive dusts.
As a place of healing and recovery, hospital air quality is even more important than the air quality at commercial offices and shopping malls. The purpose of a hospital is to return people to good health, and an essential aspect of this process is ensuring that airborne pollutants do not make existing conditions worse.
Some processes are more sensitive than others. If you work in the food and beverage or life science industries, you know how tough the demands on clean air are. To be sure you have the right filter, look for the ProSafe symbol.
