Production managers in chemical and pharmaceutical industries need to ensure that outgoing products are always of the highest quality. In this context, cross contamination is the greatest threat to product quality and can be avoided by complying with the strict rules established by GMP (Good Manufacturing Practices).
There are 3 types of cross-contamination:
- physical contamination: fragments and dust from compression machinery
- chemical contamination: steam, humidity, molecules
- biological contamination: bacteria, fungi, viruses
GMP calls for the use of appropriate equipment and measures to prevent products from being contaminated by external agents. This equipment includes industrial vacuum cleaners with HEPA filtration. Installed on production lines or in departments, these are the most efficient, fastest and safest solution. Pneumatic conveyors on the other hand ensure the dust is transported safely, preventing products from coming into contact with polluting agents and making sure the morphology of the final product remains intact.
INDUSTRIAL VACUUM CLEANER WITH HEPA FILTRATION FOR CHEMICAL-PHARMACEUTICAL DUSTS
Using industrial vacuum cleaners to clean the work place means you can:
- maintain the highest level of hygiene in the work environment (floors, machinery, tools), by preventing the re-circulation of contaminated materials.
- remove dust at source, at strategic points in the production process
- eliminate any possibility of foreign body contamination in the production process
Stainless steel construction, multiple levels of HEPA dust filtration, smooth surfaces and easy sanitation are the key characteristics of industrial vacuum cleaners designed for the pharmaceutical industry.
DUST CONTAINMENT SYSTEMS FOR API AND HPAPI
Delfin has developed specific solutions for the pharmaceutical industry, the Dust Containment range. The range complies with GMP guidelines and is equipped with safety systems designed to allow you to work with highly potent active ingredients in total safety.
- Maximum containment of pharmaceutical dust
- Safe collection and disposal of powders using containment bags
- Wash in Place cleaning system
- Filter replacement with Bag-in Bag-Out system
INDUSTRIAL VACUUM CLEANERS FOR GENERAL CLEANING AND MACHINERY MAINTENANCE
Hygiene, safety and quality of finished products are the essential elements of chemical and pharmaceutical production. The risks of contamination and long periods of time required for the maintenance of machinery undermine production efficiency and must therefore be minimized. Delfin vacuum cleaners for general cleaning are the perfect choice for companies in this sector Thanks to their high performance and high efficiency filters they are ideal for:
Facilitate the cleaning of environments and machinery
Reducing cleaning times
By matching the vacuum cleaner with colour-coded accessories certified for contact with pharmaceutical dusts, it is possible to easily identify the different work areas and eliminate any threat of contamination.
SAFETY AND QUALITY IN CLEAN ROOMS
Cleanrooms are controlled areas in terms of atmospheric pressure and particle pollution. The air inside must contain a very low amount of suspended micro dust particles and therefore be very clean, with very high levels of hygiene.
The LAB CONTROL range of vacuum cleaners meets requirements up to ISO4, ensuring environmental hygiene even during and after their use. Thanks to the HEPA filters with multiple levels of filtration, a warranty of maximum cleanliness of the outgoing air is assured.
Built-in AISI316 stainless steel with mirror polishing, the entire range and accessories are autoclavable (excluding the head of the vacuum cleaners). They allow:
Safe and easy cleaning
Easy to sanitize
INTEGRATED SOLUTIONS ON THE MACHINE
In the chemical and pharmaceutical sectors, the latest generation of equipment is used to transform materials from raw to quality finished products. Solids, granules, and liquids deriving from the various production cycles constantly accumulate on these machines.
This leads to a malfunctioning of the equipment itself. Using a vacuum cleaner for suction on board of the machine eliminates waste and dust frequently. Guaranteeing efficiency, productivity, and reducing the time needed to clean machinery such as:
Capsule filling machine
They are available in vertical or horizontal construction. Easy to install and integrated either on existing production lines or in places where space is limited.
SUCTION OF FINE SUSPENDED DUST
During the weighting phases of the product, fine powders and other ingredients can spill out and remain in suspension in the air. They represent a serious risk for operators who inhale them.
The most effective form of protection is to localize the suction directly at the source by using an industrial dust collector. With its wide surface filters allows dust to be removed before it can be a danger to workers.
The Delfin dust collectors are born from the need to keep the production lines clean and in operation, ensuring:
A healthy working environment
Certified safety for the extraction of explosive dust
TRANSPORT OF GRANULES AND POWDERS
The transfer and loading of powders and granules inside the production must be carried out in total safety avoiding any risk of impurity.
If the powders used are harmful or toxic, their dispersion in the environment must be prevented, removing health risks for the operators.
The pneumatic conveyor is a closed system that guarantees efficiency and maintenance of product quality without risk of dispersion or contamination during the transport of powders.
Their use can increase the productivity and efficiency of the automatic machines on which they are installed by up to 30%, including:
Capsule filling machines
They are an excellent solution to optimize your work, safely and comfortably transporting powders through the production department.
REMOVE PACKAGING WASTE
Vacuum cleaners from the AS line are necessary for the removal of packaging scraps and trimmings. Designed for use in pharmaceutical environments, they reduce downtime of packaging machinery. Thanks to their large capacity, the industrial trim extractor remove offcuts and scraps from production cycles and machinery such as:
Flowpack packaging machines
In order to minimize the interruptions necessary for the removal and cleaning of machinery, it is necessary to eliminate the dispersion of residues on the production lines.
