Though tablet compression does not generate large volumes of fugitive dust, safe and efficient collection of whatever dust is created by this process is critical. The dust collector linked to the press can contribute to reliable, consistent performance – or detract from it, if components are not properly designed.Life science and healthcare
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.
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.
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.
Dust collectors are necessary safety systems in many manufacturing and processing plants, thus as in the food processing industry. But if they are not designed, installed and maintained properly, these systems themselves can cause serious problems. In this eBook we highlight 10 ways how to make sure your dust collection system is up to the tasks of keeping workers safe, maximising production uptime and meeting regulatory compliance.
A properly designed and installed dust collection system will effectively catch, convey and separate hazardous and nuisance dusts. Our new ePoster pinpoints key areas to watch and signs to look for that will help you avoid problems with your dust collection system and to keep up process availability in your production facility.

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.

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.
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.
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.
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.
Dust is everywhere – in our homes, workplaces and the surrounding environment. One can be annoyed with the dust piled on the surface of the bookshelf but unfortunately there is a darker side; the dust can cause allergies, health problems and expensive issues in production processes and equipment.

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.
In domestic situations, dust can often be swept under the carpet, both figuratively and literally. This is not the case on construction sites and in factories where dust is a health threat that can, at its extreme, result in fatalities.
Filtration is a physical, biological or chemical operation that separates solid matter – and sometimes fluids – from a mixture with a filter medium that has a complex structure through which only certain elements of the air (or fluid) can pass.
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
