Aerodyne Environmental, the industry’s leading manufacturer of industrial cyclonic dust collectors and dust collection valves, recently assisted in a pharmaceutical application. A prominent US pharmaceutical company was creating a dust collection system for the facility where a variety of drugs are manufactured.
