Wet Dust Collection for Sticky Overspray

Whirl Wet Dust Collectors preferred for pill coating operation.

A major multi-national manufacturer of pharmaceuticals and vaccines chose Whirl Wet technology for a pill coating operation. The aqueous sugar solution created heavy loadings of sticky overspray in the 3 micron range. This blinded the existing baghouses after just six batches despite the use of PTFE cartridges – (the best available option for baghouses used in this type of application.)
