Pharmaceutical and Nutraceutical Dust Collection
Introduction to Dust Control for the Pharmaceutical and Nutraceutical Industries
Manufacturing solid and powdered drugs, vitamins and nutraceuticals can create quite a bit of dust. Depending on the ingredients and processes you are using, this dust may be hazardous, combustible and/or toxic. Pharmaceutical and nutraceutical production requires effective dust collection to reduce risks to workers, comply with regulatory requirements and prevent cross-contamination within the facility.
All types of pharmaceutical and nutraceutical production create air quality concerns, but dust control is especially important for solid dosage processes, including production of tablets, powders and powder-filled capsules. Uncontrolled pharmaceutical and nutraceutical dust can contaminate processes and create health hazards for workers.
