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.
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.Commercial and Public buildings Education and Experience Life science and healthcare Air quality Electronics and optics Food and beverage Manufacturing and Machinery
Following the project conducted in 2020 to deploy 4,000 Camfil City M air purifiers to protect the schools where more than 100,000 students could benefit from the improved clean air. This measure was implemented by The Department of Education, Culture and Sports of the Valencia region as a measure Against COVID-19. Now the regional government has decided to protect the elderly and vulnerable by having air filtration solutions in the indoor environment.Case Studies Commercial and Public buildings Life science and healthcare Air quality Virus Contamination Control
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.
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.
G-CON Manufacturing, a mobile cleanroom provider, and Camfil recently partnered to provide their leading-edge technologies together to meet the needs of a well-known pharmaceutical customer.
When a major biopharmaceutical company began to experience problems with leaky filters in its R&D lab, it turned to Camfil’s award-winning EnerGuard™ filters for help. The result? Purpose-built filters with close to 100% efficiency, zero installation failures, minimal unplanned filter changes – and significant savings in time and energy.
Awareness and regulations in the life science and pharmaceutical processes are essential as critical molecules in the mistaken place can cause failure of the production process which can be extremely harsh to the outcome. In the pharmaceutical and life science industries, clean rooms and laboratories are often used for various purposes. These cleanrooms are subject to a high level of cleanliness of numerous particles and molecules

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.
We have gathered the most frequently asked questions about the Coronavirus (COVID-19) and filtration.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
Case Study: 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.
