Cross-contamination can happen in tablet presses, capsule filling, milling, and polishing machines, pill de-dusters, and other equipment associated with pharmaceutical drug development and/or chemical production. As powders, debris, and potent compounds within the environment threaten employee health and safety, they also threaten product purity. If you add the threat of combustible dust into the mix, you could potentially face something much worse.
To address this very concern, Nilfisk developed the A15DX air-operated vacuum for the collection of combustible dust. It uses an anti-static filter to trap 99.7% of dust particles as small as 1.5 microns (with an optional upstream HEPA filter for particles as small as 0.3 microns). This industrial vacuum features a 50-liter stainless liter for maximum spark resistance, and it meets the latest NFPA 654 standards for the safe collection of combustible dust.
