Problem: A hand-held vacuum couldn’t keep the air or the tablet packaging machine clean
Solution: A Donaldson® Torit® Downflo® Oval dust collector with Ultra-Web® filter, and Easy-Duct™ duct work
Recently business has increased at GPSI, a packager of tablets, pills, capsules, and other medicines for human consumption. Once the packaging machine became busier, Nick Rini, engineer, found his crew was no longer able to keep the machine clean and dust out of the air with their hand-held vacuum cleaner. Pink dust in the ambient air was evidenced in the pink tinge on walls, baseboards, and on ceiling air vents of the room.
Nick called in Donaldson® Torit® to consult on dust control solutions and the sales engineer made two recommendations:
Nick positioned the DFO collector next to the table and configured the ductwork using standard components from the Donaldson Torit Easy Duct™. By using a “Y” joint and Easy Duct clamps, Nick assembled a ducting system that connected both the hopper and the vibrator bed to the DFO collector.
Nick commented, “The DFO is quiet and my crew likes that it is self-cleaning. It’s very good! We are looking forward to having cleaner air here in the plant.”
