When purchasing dust collection systems and filter cartridges, the initial purchase price is just the tip of the iceberg. The true costs – energy, consumables and operations – are lurking below the surface. The good news is that there are ways to reduce these costs over the long term.
Laser cutting, plasma cutting and oxy-fuel cutting are different machining processes used in the metal producing and metalworking industries, using energy in various forms to cut virtually any shape from iron and nonferrous materials out of sheets or large slabs. During the processes, the materials heat up, melt and cause harmful emissions. If not controlled properly, this airborne dust and fumes pose health risks for operators and cause damage to machinery.
Dust collection systems are an important part of any manufacturing process, so they need to be sized and designed properly. One critical design component is specifying the proper filtration media, which requires analysis of the dust in the process and all operating conditions.
HemiPleat is, in short, the uniquely, patented media pleating technology Camfil use to create highly efficient filter cartridges that outlast and outperform competitors alternatives.
At the factory in Lunderskov, thermal cutting processes such as oxygen cutting, plasma cutting and CNC machining are carried out, and all processes are associated with individual ventilation process.
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.
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.
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.
CleanSeal Exhaust Integrity is the next generation of exhaust HEPA housings for sensitive processes. This premium range is designed to ensure a safe operation with critical or hazardous substances.

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.
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.
Manufacturing, processing and packing of food and beverage products and their ingredients usually generates dust. This, in turn, can create a number of significant challenges for the industry. When dust particles become airborne they can threaten employee health, contaminate products and/or cause combustible dust incidents. Using a high-efficiency dust collection system helps to reduce those risks and keep your facility in compliance with local HSE regulations.
Metalworking facilities, especially those which perform large-scale fabrication, must be diligent in controlling harmful emissions in the workplace. Removing dusts, fumes and mist generated by various processes is a must for good housekeeping, worker safety, equipment reliability and regulatory compliance including environmental legislation.
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.

What if we told you that 98% air and 2% fuel is the input of your most valuable assets, your turbines? Now what if we told you that 100% of that air contains pollutants that can damage your turbines if they’re not properly filtered?
Gas turbines are susceptible to fouling and damage if water droplets and water soluble contaminants, i.e. salts, are ingested by an engine.
During heavy storms, filters are subject to a lot of water. Both filter efficiency and pressure drop can be impacted if the filter drainage is not properly designed or the media hydrophobicity is not sufficient.
