Flexible duct products from Eximo are helping the Australian pharmaceutical sector to maintain clean and safe environments at their facilities to global standards.
Australia’s pharmaceutical manufacturing sector has now overtaken vehicle manufacturing and textiles in terms of manufacturing exports, and is all set to become second only to the mining industry in terms of export revenue.
According to the federal Department of Innovation, Industry, Climate Change, Science, Research and Tertiary Education, the pharmaceuticals industry had a turnover of approximately $22 billion in 2009-10, placing Australia among the top 10 global pharmaceutical producers.
Given the healthy growth of the sector, and to ensure that the nation’s leading drug makers continue to achieve export success, it is important to maintain the reputation of the industry as a producer of pure, reliable and high quality products by facilitating a clean and sterile work environment.
Eximo supplies a range of flexible ducting products such as the Flex range, which gives local drug makers all the locally-sourced technology required to maintain a manufacturing environment comparable to the cleanest and safest in the world in terms of air quality.
Eximo's General Manager Mrs Karen Browne explains that the company can custom build for pharmaceutical industry needs, specialised products such as ventilation ducting up to 1800mm internal diameter that resists up to 300°C, a flex that is resistant to various microbes and hydrolysis as well as a flex duct that handles corrosive liquids and high abrasives and even one that resists chemicals.
Eximo can provide a suitable ducting solution to meet requirements ranging from state-of-the-art antistatic ducting, and ducting with superior high chemical resistance or flame retardation to ducting that offers high flexibility and excellent axial compressibility or ducting resistant to aggressive and abrasive fumes and dust.
Eximo has assisted several pharmaceutical clients whose applications are both stringent as well as large in size. Ducting can be manufactured to any length and size required by the drug company.
The entire range of Eximo’s flexible ducting products will clip straight into their metal speedLOCK standard heavy wall modular ducting range because they have hose tail fittings built into the steel duct.
