Critical Cleaning Systems For Reusable Filter Bags

Source: Miele Professional

Pharmaceutical fluid bed dryers often feature reusable filter bags that must be periodically cleaned as a clogged bag can seriously impact the effectiveness of the dryer. Often times, this is done manually using a simple hose or pressure washer. Besides being a labor-intensive process subject to great variability in cleaning results, this can also create a hazardous situation for the worker. The residues are often hazardous and the water must be very hot to properly clean the bags.

The best means to protect the workers and provide repeatable cleaning results is with an automated system. Miele Professional Critical Cleaning Systems have proved ideal for this challenging application. Our freely programmable controllers allow custom tailoring to precisely balance the variables of temperature, time, mechanical action, and chemical action necessary for cleaning the widest range of contaminants.
