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.

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.
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.
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.
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.
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?

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.
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.
