Case Study: Compact Cyclone Key Component in Tablet Dust Reclamation? GPC Helps Keep Pharmaceutical Process in Check with FDA

Posted by Tom Hobson on Feb 20, 2017 8:30:00 AM

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. The company plans on using a cartridge collector as part of the tablet manufacturing process. Because this company is regulated by the FDA, every gram of product must be accounted for, even the dust. The active pharmaceutical ingredients (APIs) that are created are extremely fine and flow like water. The cartridge collector would be able to collect the particulate in the process, but much of it would get stuck in the filters and would be hard to account for. Read more about this case study.

The pharmaceutical industry has unique requirements that normal industrial applications do not have.  Whether it’s the strict FDA rules or the flexibility of batch production, normal industrial practices and equipment don’t always apply.  Even with continuous production becoming more popular, pharmaceutical applications are different than standard industrial applications.
