The importance of effective dust control and containment in the pharmaceutical workplace

Created 07 February 2023

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.

Containment solutions ensure that dust doesn’t escape during normal operation and routine maintenance

Created 08 December 2022

Active Pharmaceutical Ingredients (API´s) create a number of challenges for pharma manufacturers and their production processes. The API’s create very fine dusts and often high solvent concentrations during the product handling and manufacturing processes. This fine dusts pose the greatest risk to the worker’s health, with harmful particles being retained in the lungs. That´s why effective filtration is required combined with containment solutions to ensure the dust doesn’t escape during normal operation as well as during routine maintenance like filter changes or waste dust disposal.

Mitigate combustion risks & protect from dust explosions

Created 07 December 2022

Almost all industrial manufacturing, processing or packaging applications generate dust as a side effect. Many of these dusts are both combustible as well as explosive, and removing them from the work place can significantly reduce the risk of serious accidents. It is estimated that there are approximately 2,000 dust explosions in Europe annually. Most of these are minor but some are very destructive. So by extracting the dust, the risk in the production is reduced, but unless the extraction system is safe the risk is just moved.
