Unlike standard processes that generate passive dusts, noxious dusts need to be handled in a manner that limits exposure and emphasizes containment. Containment situations often become unique challenges because filtration equipment now takes on a dual role as both collector and a containment device for collected dust.
Toxic dust generated within pharmaceutical manufacturing, this filter change out often requires a Bag-In/Bag-Out (BIBO) process. The term refers to the use of special bags and handling processes that allow an operator to change filters without direct exposure to the dust in the collector. Bag-Out steps incorporate bags which are then connected to integrated collars (BIBO Collars) on the collector. The bags are attached to the collars using rubber gaskets and rubberized band clamps to create a dust-tight seal between the BIBO bag and the collector for safe change. DeGATECH BIBO technology improves efficiencies, maintains cleanliness, and most important helps protect your plant and employees health.
