Chanhassen, MN, November 13, 2009 --(PR.com
)-- www.powder-solutions.com – Powder-Solutions, Inc. helps contribute to enhanced sanitation and air quality in powder processing plants as it distributes the BFM® fitting
to replace flexible connectors held with hose clamps. The benefits this fitting brings to powder plants struggling with air quality concerns are detailed in a new case study by Powder-Solutions.
Industries ranging from food to pharmaceuticals, have long relied on flexible connectors and standard hose clamps to link processing equipment. For facilities that process finer powders, the risk of dust escaping has been unavoidable when working with flexible connectors and hose clamps.
“The danger posed by powder infiltrating equipment connections and escaping into the air in a processing plant goes beyond just losing product,” states Marv Deam CEO of Powder-Solutions, Inc. “When powder enters the air, it can form a noxious cloud that both dirties equipment and poses inhalation dangers for employees.”
One such instance of a powder processing facility that experienced sanitation and employee health risks due to poor flexible connectors is Amedica. Amedica, creators of revolutionary spinal implants, processes medical grade silicon nitride ceramic powder which is as fine as talc. Powder infiltrating between processing equipment connections meant Amedica employees spent nearly six hours every other day cleaning powder off equipment and were constantly at risk of inhalation.
After merely two weeks of consultation, Deam and Powder-Solutions customized a system for Amedica designed to forever replace its flexible connectors.
Immediately after implementation, the BFM® fitting helped Amedica:
· Eliminate any trace of sandy, powdery clouds during processing
· Reduce the time needed for powder plant cleaning & maintenance
· Minimize the risk of powder inhalation for Amedica and its plant employees
“From the day I first turned on our powder processing equipment with the new fitting installed, I was amazed,” states Jeff Goodell, Director of Facilities and Maintenance at Amedica. “The BFM® fitting works like a champ, I don’t know how else to say it.”
