The life sciences sector is a strictly regulated industry that manufactures i.a. medicines, vaccines and consumer healthcare products in a wide variety of compositions. The production processes have to be protected in order to guarantee the reliability and quality of the products and to protect man and the environment from toxic substances inherent to the production process.
Before production can start or be restarted, strict controls are applied in order to ensure that the production process is in conformity with the applicable legislations and with the good manufacturing practices (GMP) quality assurance system.
The standards to be observed are defined locally or internationally. The most widely known directives for Europe are formulated by the European Medicine Agency (EMA), and for the United States by the Food and Drug Administration (FDA).
Nowhere is air filtration as important as in healthcare. Clean air is the key priority for preventing the spread of viruses and pathogenic bacteria and for protecting staff and patients alike. They are after all constantly exposed to infection and cross-contamination hazards.
Air filters provide outstanding protection against diseases transmitted via the air, as the filters form part of a general programme for air quality control.
In addition to health and hygiene, energy savings and flexible air filtration systems, such as for operating theatres, are becoming more and more important within the sector.
Camfil offers a broad range of clean air solutions for every application in hospitals, clinics, nursing homes, dental practices and many other fields of medicine.
Are you looking for air filters and clean air solutions for the microelectronics industry? Camfil is your expert for air filtration and dust removal in sensitive production environments.
Microelectronics has a vast array of applications, including:
Are you looking for clean air solutions for nuclear applications? Camfil is your expert for air filtration and dust removal in nuclear environments.
The nuclear sector is currently strongly oriented to modernisation: existing installations are being updated and investments are still being made in new power stations. There is great interest in the possibilities that nuclear energy offers in order to reduce CO2 emissions and to find a solution for potential energy problems due to a shortage of fossil fuels.
Safety, however, is always the key priority in the construction and operation of nuclear power stations. That is why Camfil offers only top-quality products, tested and produced by highly qualified professionals in the world’s best production environments.
Clean air is vital to a gas turbine’s efficiency and reliability. As gas turbines are used all over the world to generate power, environmental conditions of each site vary such as: humidity, temperature, precipitation and air contaminants.
Camfil Power Systems is a world leader in the production and development of clean air solutions for gas turbines and other turbomachinery.
Our air intake systems are fully customised to ensure the best protection and optimal life cycle cost for your operations. We also provide acoustic and exhaust systems, including damper and diverters.
The protection of public health is a major concern for every government. Food production is therefore strictly regulated in order to prevent possible contamination risks in production installations.
When public health is threatened by a serious danger, national agencies for health and food safety can advise the authorities on taking the necessary health safety measures.
These measures can result in the recall and destruction of foodstuffs or even the temporary closure of the production facility of the negligent company. Traceable raw materials, a safe production process and a safe finished product are therefore crucial for this industry, but also for the consumer and society.
Gas filters and air filters have important building technics applications. They protect the people and equipment present in the building or on the site.
The Camfil air and dust removal filters satisfy all the applicable air filtration standards. As a result, you breathe only clean air at all times that has no negative effect on you, your equipment or your environment.
Furthermore, it is important to know that:
The choice of your filters is therefore extremely important for the energy conservation and efficiency of your building. Our air filtration solutions help you to save a large proportion of your energy costs.
In addition to our main research centre, the Tech Center in Trosa, Sweden, Camfil has various R&D centres and laboratories worldwide for investigating the air quality and its effects.
Our centres are completely devoted to the sectors where we are active. Thanks to our unique and patented research apparatus, our research evolves continuously.
As a result, we can continue to innovate, to adapt to changing needs of the market and to meet the most stringent standards when it comes to energy conservation, efficiency, safety and health.
HVAC stands for heating, ventilation and air conditioning, three important aspects for domestic and office comfort.
People feel better and perform better with clean air and a healthy indoor climate. Studies show that high-efficiency filters effectively reduce the problems that small particles can cause and help to ensure a healthy conditioned environment.
Normally, outdoor air enters the ventilation system with contamination in the form of fumes, dust and pollen on fans, batteries and lines. If the air filters do not perform as they should, the airflow in the system will deteriorate significantly and the balance between intake and discharge air is disturbed. Furthermore, the cooling and heating batteries will function less efficiently, leading to a sharp increase in energy consumption.
The efficient filters from Camfil maintain the balance while keeping odours and particles under control.
Warehousing and distribution have evolved enormously in recent years in the fields of renewable energy and automation. In addition, there is a trend to working as efficiently and cost-effectively as possible.
Automation is a technological advance that improves productivity and efficiency in distribution centres. However, automation also presents a number of challenges in the field of maintenance and unproductive standstills, cleaning, energy, accuracy of computer controlled activities, health, orderliness, etc.
A frequent question is then how this can all be combined: working as efficiently as possible, limiting costs and still continuing to make a difference.
A cleanroom is a very clean working environment that limits or precludes contamination of production processes, analyses and research. Camfil offers ceiling, wall and duct housings for the installation of EPA/HEPA/ULPA filters:
In addition, air circulation solutions are also possible:
Finally, we offer the following complete solutions for laminar flow (LAF) and uni-directional flow (UDF):
A containment environment is a physical system that prevents an uncontrolled escape of hazardous toxic substances and/or gases, such as in a nuclear or other industrial facility.
Our safety housings for containment applications guarantee the safety and protection of man and the environment when working with radioactive and other hazardous materials.
We offer i.a. the following types of safety housing:
When monitoring the indoor air quality in production environments, particular attention is generally paid to energy-saving, protective and productivity-boosting measures.
The choice of your dust collectors has a great influence on all these measures. A high-quality installation can then save you a great deal of cost and concern and improve the efficiency of your production processes.
Camfil has been working together with leading manufacturers of laminar air flow (LAF) bio-safe cabinets for many years. We know the technical requirements of this industry. MEGALAM, for example, is the best HEPA filter for this industry.
Strict requirements have to be observed for the laminarity flow in safety cabinets. Some OEM customers even demand 0.45 m/s with tolerances according to the applicable standards.
Thanks to our CMS (Controlled Media Spacing) folding technology and the optional ‘laminator’ that can be added to the filter package during production, we can easily meet these requirements.
Camfil has more than fifty years’ experience in air filtration within the healthcare industry, in Belgium and beyond. We are specialists i.a. for:
Studies have shown that 70% of the total cost of ownership (TCO) of an air filter are accounted for by the power consumption of the fan. The power consumption of the fan is directly proportional to the average pressure difference at the air filter.
A frequently held misconception is that the filter efficiency has the greatest impact on the pressure difference of an air filter, and hence on the electricity bill, but in reality the design of an air filter has a far greater impact.
The TCO of an air filter can be broken down as follows:
