Polex installs dust extraction system at pharmaceutical factory

Dust and fume filtration systems specialist Polex Environmental Engineering was recently contracted by Dust Extraction Maintenance to supply
their dust collector at the Lipa Pharmaceutical factory in Sydney, NSW.

A leading Australian producer of nutritive supplements and OTC
prescription products, Lipa Pharmaceuticals manufactures high quality vitamin
supplements including tablets, soft gelatin capsules, two piece hard gelatin
capsules, powders, liquids and creams.

Facing high dust emissions from their machinery, which, in turn led to raised
levels of dust within their factory, Lipa hired the services of Dust Extraction
Maintenance to fix the dust issues.

Dust Extraction Maintenance selected Polex’s MDC 12000, 15 kW dust
collection system featuring intelligent dust collection and designed to
automatically and continuously self‚Äêclean its filter bags with reverse pulse action. Polex’s
snap lock, quick fit, no leakage filter bags are produced from industrial
strength 550g/m_ polyester antistatic needle felt, and fitted over galvanised
wire cages.

Lipa Pharmaceuticals has expressed its satisfaction with the dust extraction
system’s performance. Polex’s dust collection system has significantly improved
the factory’s air quality with a corresponding reduction in dust fragments from
Lipa’s machines.
