Herding filters in the pharma & medicine sector

Herding dust extraction plants are widely used in the pharma & medicine sector. For example in the production of solids they play a key role in the protection of man, machine and products. They are used as bin vent, process filters integrated filter inserts or simple exhaust air filters. They ensure that the dust remains in the containment and can be disposed of with zero contamination.

The plants are used for example in the following processes:

  • Mixing, dosing and weighing
  • Granulating
  • Tablet forming
  • Film coating
  • Packing

Special properties and characteristics of the Herding® sinter-plate filter are:

  • A high rate of separations protects man and machine, the product and the environment, i.e. the dust remains in the containment
  • Long service life and low wear enhance safety and reduce spending on spare parts and servicing. Now backup filter is required in many cases
  • The rigid base body makes for a safe plant concept, with no need for structural tertiary measures even for ATEX in most cases

Herding manufactures both the filter media and the filter plants, including complete systems. An optimum solution could therefore be found for all processes, with productivity drastically improved regardless of whether the customer required a new plant, a modernization or an upgrade.
