New Bag-In/Bag-Out Dust Collector Protects Pharmaceutical Environments from Potent Dusts
Jonesboro, Ark., August 2005- A new "Gold Series (R) Camtain (TM)" dust collector from Farr Air Pollution Control (APC) provides safe-change containment of hazardous dusts in pharmaceutical manufacturing environments. It is the first in the dust collection industry to use a bag-in/bag-out (BIBO) access door and dust discharge system that have been fully surrogate-tested to ensure optimum protection of employees and indoor environments. Applications for the Camtain collector include pill presses, tablet coating, fluid bed dryers, spray dryers, general room ventilation, or wherever else containment of hazardous dust is required in pharmaceutical plants.
The Gold Series Camtain collector combines state-of-the-art cartridge dust collection with BIBO technology. Design features include rugged construction, vertically-mounted filters that eliminate uneven dust loading, and a high entry cross-flow inlet that reduces re-entrainment of fine dust particles. The "HemiPleat (TM)" filter cartridges use a patent-pending, open pleat media that results in greatly extended service life and lower pressure drop compared to standard cartridges - typically double the life at half the delta P. This open pleat design, together with the cartridge's patented inner cone, also cause dust to release readily for more efficient pulse cleaning. Rated filter efficiency is 99.999 percent on 0.5 micron particles and larger.
Another key feature of the collector is a hinged access door with an easy-to-lift cambar that facilitates the BIBO process and eliminates the problems of "floating" inside doors typically found in horizontally mounted cartridge systems. Filters are sealed via camlock action, making it easy to work through the bag. Explosion vents and burst detector alarms are available for applications involving explosive dusts.
