Digital Canary Atmosphere Monitoring System (NEW)

Digital Canary Atmosphere Monitoring System (NEW)
Product Description

Protects Your Plant, Product and People.

A little bird tells me that there’s a new way to protect the health and safety of your containment material handling system operators

Based on the traditional concept of a live coal-mine canary, the 21st century equivalent from GEA is a continuous real-time monitoring system that’s been designed to detect product leaks from contained pharmaceutical production lines and eliminate the need for routine occupational health monitoring.

The patented innovation comprises an aerosol spectrometer-based sensor that provides a constant reading (compared with a baseline) of any dust exposure at the sampling point. Programmed to accommodate a specific particle size distribution if required, the information is relayed to a control system that initiates an alarm and corrective action if out-of-specification data is received.

Modern pharmaceutical equipment is designed to operate in a completely dust-tight manner; but it’s absolutely critical to be fully prepared for worst-case scenarios, such as an unexpected containment breach. As the level of potentially dangerous airborne particles is often far below what can be seen with the naked eye, the Digital Canary is designed to be a fully integrated part of your production line.

As soon as the sensor detects powder levels that are above the allowed limit, a warning is sent to the operators … allowing them to leave the contaminated area as soon as possible. Once the concentration of airborne particles has returned to an acceptable level, the system will inform the operators that it’s now safe.

Compatible with a wide range of new and existing solid dosage applications, the Digital Canary reduces the need for SMEPAC testing, provides an audit trail in terms of cross-contamination risk and regulatory compliance, reduces the need for mechanical barriers and personal protection equipment (PPE), and offers real-time containment monitoring.

Downtime is costly. Product loss and/or exposing personnel to toxic or highly potent dust could be catastrophic. Don’t take that risk!
