Airport Road Jonesboro, AR 72401 870-933-8048 800-479-6801 Corporate Description Camfil APC offers the world's most technologically advanced dust collectors, backed by dependable service and decades of experience. Camfil's pharmaceutical experts understand the toxicological proper- ties of dusts and potent compounds. They also know how to reduce personnel exposure to toxic and combustible dusts. Part of Camfil, the largest air filter manufacturer in the world, Camfil APC guaran- tees that its collectors and filter cartridges will meet EPA particle emission requirements. Areas of Excellence Camfil personnel are trained in combustible dust issues, so they can help customers find explosion protection solutions that are compli- ant and cost-effective. The company also offers dust testing and ASHRAE Standard 199 testing services to provide meaningful data and per- formance information. Testing helps pharmaceutical manufacturers determine the dust collection system configuration and filtration compo- nents that will best meet their needs. This testing is desirable for any facilities that need to meet specific indoor air quality requirements in the work environment or PM 1, 2.5 or 10 requirements. Major Products The popular Gold Series Camtain dust collector is ideal for high- efficiency filtration of hazardous dusts. It delivers safe-change capa- bility and ease of maintenance. The GS Camtain has been independently surrogate-tested to ensure optimum protection from highly potent, toxic or allergenic dusts and to reduce the potential for cross-contamination. It exceeds OSHA mandates for factory air quality, and offers the highest explosion protection in accordance with NFPA and ATEX standards when it is equipped with appropriate explosion protection devices. The Quad Pulse Package is a small footprint dust collector that can be positioned on the production floor or suite. It is available with one or two filters to handle 295-1765 CFM air volume, and uses a seg- mented cleaning process to keep the primary filter cartridge operat- ing continuously so manufacturing is not interrupted. The unit reduces energy costs by cleaning filters at low pressure. A secondary HEPA filter provides 99.995% filtration efficiency to capture the finest dust particles. It also features pressure- resistant construction, built-in NFPA and ATEX-compliant explosion protection, integrated fan, quiet operation and bag-in/bag-out filter change-out option. Markets Served Camfil APC supplies dust collection equipment worldwide to pharma- ceutical manufacturers. Common applications include tableting, coating, drying, mixing, blending, granulation, filling, packaging and general room ventilation. Facilities All Camfil APC components, filter cartridges and accessories are man- ufactured in ISO 9001 certified facilities. A state-of-the-art test lab in its Jonesboro, Arkansas headquarters is equipped to conduct dust testing and simulated full-scale testing. The company leads the industry in green and sustainable initiatives. Camfil APC
