We fill barrels from a dryer. The environment is a classic, non-protected chemical workshop -- a closed room where one production is in progress at a time. Is there a system that ensures total protection of the product/environment and vice-versa? So that to control the particle and bio contamination of the product and ensure a safe handling for the workers. We're look for total closing and if possible an isolator.

Re: For powder handling, is there a system that ensures total protection of the product/environment?17 April 2009 at 1:29pmI can only offer advice from the U.S. perspective. The best resource is the National Institute for Occupational Safety and Health Web site (http://www.cdc.gov/niosh), which provides checklists and guidance on selection of the appropriate safeguards for specific classes of chemicals and bio-hazards. The site also has links to specific manufactures that specialize in these designs (look in the working groups pages). In the pharmaceutical area, the standards would be found under a USP guidebook for the compounds.
