SFC dust collectors available from United Air Specialists (Sales) offer an ideal solution for emissions generated during pharmaceutical formulation processes.

Dust collectors used in the pharmaceutical industry often require modifications including ledge-free design, stainless steel finish and washdown capabilities. Selecting an air cleaning system for pharmaceutical processing requires careful consideration given that emissions including fine dusts and powders given out during production can pose a threat to the respiratory health of employees and jeopardise the purity of end-products, especially when the dusts are sub-micron in size.

The SFC downward flow cartridge dust collectors from United Air Specialists are designed for effective powder reclamation in addition to delivering benefits such as cleaner air, longer filter life, easy maintenance and overall cost savings.

Available in a variety of sizes to suit diverse application needs, the SFC dust collectors can be used full-time or for various batch operations such as blending, coating, cross-contamination control, drying, encapsulating, granulating, mixing, packaging, polishing, product recovery, sorting or tablet pressing.
