Unit uses two main cartridge filters designed to handle air volumes from 590 to 1,765 cubic feet per min- ute. Cleanable filter system allows manufacturers to run continuous pro- duction processes and avoid frequent, expensive filter replacements. Dust collector cleans filters one at a time in four segments, so they are continually cleaned without interrupting airflow. Primary filters remove the majority of collected dust, prolonging the service life of the second-stage HEPA filter that captures the finest, most hazardous dust particles. Dust collector features a pressure-shock-resistant housing that maintains its integrity during an explo- sion event, meeting NFPA and ATEX standards for explosion protection. Camfil APC, Jonesboro, AR 800 479 6801 Dissolution tester Opt-Diss 410 UV fiber-optic dissolu- tion tester measures a solution directly in the vessel, eliminating manual or automated sampling and offline analy- sis along with problematic filters, tub- ing, and pumps used in conventional sampling. Moving light generates near real-time dissolution data and allows nearly limitless sample points as fre- quently as every five seconds. Data collection and analysis is automated and fast, requiring no operator interac- tion. Multi-component analysis quan- tifies two components at once in the same dissolution test without the need for liquid chromatography, includ- ing for products with two APIs or to measure interaction with excipients, coatings, capsules, or any other source of deviation of the UV spectra. Fully integrated system is controlled by a single software package and features options such as Arch probes designed specifically for dissolution testing with negligible hydrodynamic effect or conventional dip probes with fixed or interchangeable pathlengths.
