Pharmaceutical dust collection to improve work conditions and long-term health benefits

Pharmaceutical dust collection can be dangerous and explosive, which is why AQC offers products to mitigate the dangers surrounding pill dust and other dusts resulting in the fabrication of medication. Our units help keep workers safe, they also keep a clean environment for the very strict laws and regulations surrounding these types of productions.

Path of dust and fumes

The capture of dust and gases happens in three phases which should not be neglected to ensure safety of workers and the environment:
  • Capture: With our source capture equipment placed right at the origin of the dust emissions, the particles are drawn into the arm as soon as they are projected in the air preventing a cloud of dust and quick spread.
  • Transport: Once the particles have entered the arm, they are then transported through a ducting system towards the third step, a filtration system.
  • Filtration/Evacuation: Once the dust has entered the ducting system, it can either be directed towards the exterior or through a filtration system to be redistributed inside the facility, saving energy and financial resources.

Combustible dust risks

Combustible dust is one of the biggest hazards in dust collecting. Our experts will help you navigate dust dangers to meet all requirements and standards such as NFPA standards. They will guide you towards the right products to ensure safety for everyone in the working environment. To know if your dust is combustible, you can consult the OSHA dust poster of combustible dust.

Source capture and dust collecting for dust is proven to be the best solution and the most efficient method to protect workers, equipment, and the environment.
