Pharmaceutical Applications

DCS has extensive experience in the design, supply, manufacture, installation, commissioning and servicing of complex pharmaceutical dust and fume extraction systems.  This expertise encompasses initial design and consultancy through to complete turnkey installations, including supply of new equipment and/or modification or replacement of existing plant.

DCS has pioneered the design of fully automatic energy-saving extraction systems which incorporate ECOGATE® extraction-on-demand technology.  We have recently installed three large systems for a major pharmaceutical company in the UK, which have replaced systems that served 54 suites/machines and ran 24/7 - typically consuming over 100kW.  Now upgraded to a fully compliant ATEX extraction system, the new installation operates at around 14kW on a diversity factor of up to 20, in any order required, to provide precise extraction-on-demand. The system usually operates on a fully automatic basis, and has also eliminated the need for maintenance personnel to wear special PPE.

The benefits of the new system extend beyond the obvious huge reduction in power usage for dust and fume extraction; major savings have also been made on manufacturing clean-room air-conditioning (AC). The previous installation continually extracted AC air – whether a laboratory room was in use or not. This expensive commodity is no longer continually extracted and has resulted in further cost savings.

From the initial design stage, DCS works in conjunction with its clients to provide a full turnkey solution, including all building and mechanical services.  Installation of extraction equipment is undertaken by specialist DCS’s teams, and building and mechanical services are usually organised through the use of clients’ preferred suppliers, under the immediate direction/control of the DCS contracts manager.
