Dust Collectors for Pharmaceutical Industry

 Pharmaceutical and Biotech Laboratories Ventilation EquipmentThe pharmaceutical & biotech industry, including laboratories, demands a level of reliability that only the highest quality industrial ventilation equipment can provide. Providing a clean, stable & breathable environment is of utmost importance.

To achieve clean air, proper industrial ventilation equipment from a trusted source is needed. Biotechnology and pharmaceutical enterprises utilize industrial fans, blowers, and dust collection systems to contain potentially hazardous byproducts while controlling the indoor air quality.

Typical HVAC systems in biotech and pharmaceutical settings require rooms to be sealed and air filtration to remain at a high standard. Heavy duty ventilation fans that can ventilate sealed rooms, or clean rooms, while also filtering sub-microns. The pharmaceutical ventilation equipment that is able to accomplish this must also be efficient, yet produce low-noise and vibration-free.

R & D (Research & Development), pharmaceutical manufacturing or trial testing of drugs, each process carries unique demands for safe handling. With the potential corrosives, bio-hazards and filtration requirements – this creates a duty point that few manufacturers can satisfy.

Careful consideration must be given to the governing and regulation agencies mandating code compliance for environmental hygiene, safety, which includes noise, clean air and explosion suppression. Add all this together and you have a truly unique environment.

Pharmaceutical Applications

Depending on the purpose of the pharmaceutical facility, various ventilation equipment is necessary. Some of the more common pharmaceutical ventilation equipment are needed for:

Laboratory Ventilation Materials

In addition to proper equipment to properly ventilate a facility, the equipment must also be qualified to control materials that are rigorously regulated.

Transporting corrosive fluids that contain acids require specialized materials. The air in the environment should also be stabilized. Therefore, industrial fans and blowers are constructed of galvanized steel and other non-corrosive metals such as alloys and FRP (Fiberglass Reinforced Plastic). These materials prevent damage to the ventilation equipment and prevent downtime.

It is also possible to have custom made fans depending on the specific biotech application.

Industrial Coatings and Finishes for Biotech Chemicals Ventilation Equipment

Depending on the types of chemicals used in the biotech laboratory, a specific finish or coating must be applied to the fans, blowers and dust collectors.
Not sure which is suitable for the specific application? Simply contact a qualified ventilation specialist and they will work with you to select the appropriate coating and finish for your equipment.

Pharmaceutical Laboratory Ventilation Equipment

Various applications in the pharmaceutical industry require industrial strength fans that are suitable for biotech products and pharmaceutical grade equipment. Typical ventilation equipment used for pharmaceutical laboratory applications include:

The quiet operation and bag-in/bag-out dust collector housing with filter change option is available. Find out which one is best for your application.

Biotech Fume Hood

Fume exhaust hoods for laboratories and in clean rooms are designed with the intention of ensuring safe working environments by protecting against byproducts such as toxic fumes, dust, vapors, chemical spillage, and flames.

The exhaust fans in pharmaceutical grade hoods use a very powerful exhaust fan blower to draw in contamination. Ductless fume hoods provide recirculated air flow while removing contamination by using HEPA filters. Ducted hoods are available as well.

Dust Control

Typical Pharmaceutical Manufacturing Operations that Produces Dust

Dust Collectors for Pharmaceutical Manufacturing

If your laboratory or pharmaceutical manufacturing facility engages in any of the aforementioned operations then a dust collector is necessary. Implementing a dust collector in a pharmaceutical manufacturing facility that is dependable and durable is paramount to the operation’s success. Pharmaceutical dust collectors are perfect for high-efficiency filtration, especially if the product is not reused.

OSHA mandates laboratories and pharmaceutical facilities to meet IAQ standards. All dust collectors provided by AGET, A.C.T & Trion comply with OSHA mandates. With a wide variety of dust collectors from various manufacturers your biotech laboratory and pharmacy can rest assured the facility is implementing the appropriate pharmaceutical dust collector.

The best dust collection equipment for pharmaceutical manufacturing companies feature units that reduce energy costs by using low-pressure HEPA filters. They are also constructed with pressure-resistant and explosion protection steel.

The quiet operation and bag-in/bag-out dust collector housing with filter change option is available to isolate personnel from hazardous material while replacing the filter.

Material Conveying - Pneumatic & Mechanical

Both mechanical and pneumatic conveying fans include free impellers made of steel plates or stainless steel radial blades. Radial blade fans and blowers are most commonly used for material conveying such as in the pharmaceutical manufacturing and other laboratory applications.

Air Filters for Pharmaceutical Manufacturing and Biotech Laboratories

The pharmaceutical industry has strict guidelines to adhere to when it comes to air quality. Implementing HEPA filters removes contamination that is a byproduct of manufacturing pharmaceutical products.

Air in biotech laboratories can contain potential contamination, such as spores, bacteria, mold and viruses. By applying a quality industrial air filter system in laboratories the chance of such contaminants being harmful is significantly reduced.

Staff is also protected from inhaling chemicals that can cause harm. Good air filtration systems in pharmaceutical environments that are easy to maintain and clean by staff will maximize productivity and minimize downtime.

Fans & Blowers Designed for Pharmaceutical Applications

Pharmaceutical applications require various axial fans and centrifugal blowers in order to exhaust, extract, and contaminate air. These fans require particular materials and are coated with an appropriate finish depending on the application and chemicals involved.

Air in biotech laboratories can contain potential contamination, such as spores, bacteria, mold and viruses. By applying a quality industrial air filter system in laboratories the chance of such contaminants being harmful is significantly reduced.

Staff is also protected from inhaling chemicals that can cause harm. Good air filtration systems in pharmaceutical environments that are easy to maintain and clean by staff will maximize productivity and minimize downtime.

Pharmaceutical fans and blowers include:

If the biotech laboratory is dealing with hazardous materials then explosion proof industrial fans and blowers are mandatory. Talk with an experienced air ventilation engineer to make sure your biotech laboratory or pharmaceutical application is adhering to state and local code.

Ventilation for Pharmaceutical Applications

Pharmacies need to keep indoor air quality clean in order to prevent byproducts from contaminating drugs while keeping the environment comfortable for staff.

Air curtains also keep temperatures balanced between rooms when a door is opened in cases where maintaining proper temperature is paramount for products. Clean rooms and laboratories benefit from air curtains by blocking contaminants from entering when a door is opened.
