Micron Bio-Systems is situated in England. Micron makes among others feed supplements for the biotechnology industry. The manufacturing processes at Micron generate a lot of dust particles. Blending is a common process at Micron. They blend various particles which cause all kinds of dust in different sized particles. In England you need a dust extraction system to comply with the European standard FEMAS* for the integrity and safe delivery of animal feed materials and to meet the EU Feed Hygiene Regulation.
Therefore Micron was looking for an effective dust control device with filters to ensure easy maintenance. Additionally they were looking for a renewed and cost effective solution to deal with the high volumes of dust created in the lab and workshop. The entire building is 1,525 m2 (incl. offices, lab and workshop). Plymovent was challenged to get the dust levels under control.
