Dust containment system

Wednesday, 21 February, 2007 | Supplied by: Donaldson Australasia Pty Ltd



A dust containment system has been designed to maintain OHS standards for employees in the pharmaceutical and tablet making industry.

The DCS Pharmaceutical (Downflo Containment System Pharmaceutical) extracts and safely collects potentially toxic dusts that occur during production of pharmaceutical and nutraceutical pills.

It is particularly applicable in work centres where employees have low operator exposure limits during manufacture.

The system is suitable for use in the manufacture of products such as Viagra and blood pressure tablets which could be toxic if any fugitive dust emissions are inhaled in reasonable quantity.

The DCS Pharmaceutical system operates using a two-stage filtration system with Ultra-Web nanofibre technology and Torit-built HEPA filters.

Three clean/change dust discharge options round out the new technology via a containment transfer chamber or industry standard Buck Valve or Dover Pac.

The filtration unit on the DCS Pharmaceutical is oval shaped and has wide pleat cartridge filters in conjunction with the Ultra-Web filter media technology.

This nanofibre filter media lasts much longer than standard filter media, requires fewer changeouts and is scientifically proven to have advantages in efficiency, pressure drop and surface loading.
