Pharmaceutical companies are always concerned about containing dust generated from the many process operations used to make drugs. Spray drying, blending, granulation, tablet coating, capsule and tablet presses are all processes that create dust and must be contained to prevent employee exposure as well as cross contamination issues. After the potentially toxic pharmaceutical dust is captured filters are replaced using a bag-in/bag-out (BIBO) process. The collected dust should be sent to a testing lab to determine if it is explosive or not.
Capturing the contaminate and transporting it through the duct system so it doesn’t accumulate in the duct is part of the industrial ventilation design process. Customized hoods for ribbon blenders, sisters and mixing stations are important factors in a dust collection system design. This part of the design establishes required air flows and pressure losses which are needed pieces of information to determine
the size of the dust collector.
