Pharmaceutical processing equipment that produces high concentrations of fine, hazardous, combustible and nuisance dust needs industrial dust collectors that keep workers safe. Camfil APC’s Farr Gold Series® Camtain™ dust collector is used in a variety of pharmaceutical dust collector applications, including tablet pressing, coating, fluid bed drying, spray drying, blending, granulation and general room ventilation. It is ideal for high-efficiency filtration where captured particles of product will not be reused.

The FGS Camtain collector exceeds OSHA mandates for factory air quality, and when equipped with a Camfil explosion vent and inlet isolation damper, it offers the highest explosion protection in accordance with NFPA and ATEX standards.

The Camtain collector uses high-efficiency filters up to MERV 16 to stop 99.99% of the dust at 0.5 microns. Specially treated filter media repels fine particulates and moisture for a lower average pressure drop and longer filter life. Gold Cone® cartridge filter design provides 25% more media for long service life. HemiPleat® filter technology ensures uniform pleat spacing with synthetic beads that hold the pleats of the filter cartridge wide open, making the entire media area usable and cleanable.

The vertically arranged filters shed virtually all the collected particles versus horizontal filters, which allow the particles to build up on top of the filter in high dust loading applications. The collector is easy to maintain and features a safe-change containment system for both the filter cartridges and discharge system underneath the collector.

Designed specifically for the pharmaceutical processing industry, the Camtain was tested under controlled parameters using a surrogate that mimics the particle characteristics and flowability of the active pharmaceutical ingredient. This is a safe and effective method to help predict how well the system will contain the dust and remain in compliance with employee exposure and cross contamination requirements.
