Drug Manufacturing Dust Collection

Drug Manufacturing

Pharmaceutical dust can be generated while doing mixing and blending operations.  Filling tablet presses and packaging are also dust generating processes that require industrial ventilation design.  Tablet coating is a specialized operation that requires a careful balance of filtered exhaust and supply air. Regardless of the operation a major concern is that most of the dust in this industry is explosive and can be hazardous if exposed to. 

Removing the contaminate, transporting it through the duct system so it doesn’t accumulate in the duct and then filtering the air in an environment where all precautions are taken to prevent a dust explosion are only a few considerations we consider. We consider the maintenance team that may require a bag-in/Bag-out design so they’re not exposed during maintenance operations.  We also consider rotary air locks, explosion vents, isolation gates, filter monitoring and filtration efficiencies as part of our design.

At Clean Air Company, we understand how harmful explosive dust and other contaminants are and we have the experience and expertise to help you provide a healthier and safer workplace.
