Single use powder containment practices are still in their infancy but keeping your product from cross contamination and reducing airborne particulates is important. Understanding how more modern bag designs can increase safety and speed is a concern to the industry. We looked at the ease of fill along with dispensing times and product loss. ILC Dover’s EZ-Biopac shows a 71% decrease in filling times when measured against an industry standard 2D bag. Due to the non-static film we saw an almost 20% reduction in powder discharge times. In addition, it demonstrates a 33.3% improvement in powder recovery showing reduced waste. Choosing the proper containment system can have a significant impact on plant productivity and profitability.
This case study by ILC Dover will delve into:
- the issues of powder handling;
- the keys to efficient powder transfer and containment;
- evaluating potential systems;
- results; and
- discharge trials.
