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.Air quality Commercial and Public buildings Electronics and optics Life science and healthcare Manufacturing and Machinery
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.Life science and healthcare Case Studies
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.
Providing the appropriate environment for fertilisation is one of the most important steps in IVF. Airborne pollutants are critical in IVF facilities where air quality in laboratories and clinical procedure rooms can have enormous effects on embryo quality, embryo survival and the clinical outcome of IVF treatment.
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.
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.
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 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.
We have gathered the most frequently asked questions about the Coronavirus (COVID-19) and filtration.
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.
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.
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: Pfizer Prioritises Energy Reduction Project. Camfil secured a supply and installation contract at the Pfizer Global Research and Development Campus in South-East Kent, UK that improved air quality and saves over £2 million.
Case Study: Cannabis Cultivation. This key player in the industry operates one of the largest facilities in Canada, with over 150,000 square feet of space licensed for medical marijuana production. The process of growing cannabis produces a strong smell.
Case Study: Odour Solution For Pharmaceutical Company. There was a distinct odour in the manufacturer's lab and cold storage area, and employee complaints of nuisance odour eventually circulated to management where the concern was escalated.
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.
