Pharmaceutical processing facilities that produce high concentrations of fine, hazardous, combustible and nuisance dust need an industrial dust collector that is cost effective to operate and easy to maintain on the plant floor or in production suites. The Quad Pulse Package 2 (QPP2) dust collector from Camfil Air Pollution Control (APC) has two main filter cartridges designed for 590-1765 cubic-feet-per-minute air volumes to increase filtration capacity.
The EPA says it has put together a nationwide plan to address PFAS - an environmental danger that has gained prominence and raised alarm in recent years.

Rude passengers and sleep deprivation from irregular hours aren’t the only work-related hazards that crew members of airplanes have to deal with.
They – along with passengers - are exposed to cosmic ionizing radiation on every flight, because of the altitudes at which they fly. Because crew members fly more frequently, they are more at risk from the health effects of the radiation than are passengers.
Cosmic ionizing radiation (or cosmic radiation) comes from outer space.
