Camfil Farr — the world leader in air filtration systems and sustainable clean air solutions — is pleased to announce that Sean O’Reilly, the company’s global director for the cleanroom and bio-pharma segment, will be a featured speaker at PHARMTECH 2011, one of the pharmaceutical industry’s premier annual conferences.
Now in its 13th year, PHARMTECH brings together experts from across the globe to discuss, investigate, and learn about the latest in pharmaceutical technology. This year’s event, to take place November 22 through 25 at the Crocus Expo, International Exhibition Centre, in Moscow.
Sean’s presentation will focus on best practices in selecting sustainable air filters — a key topic for pharmaceutical industry companies as they pursue important initiatives to save energy, lower costs, and reduce their impact on the environment.
“Too many companies look at the initial cost of commercial air filters instead of looking at their life cycle cost, or LCC,” says Sean. “The problem is that in the long run, costs end up being far higher than they need to be. On average, 70 percent of the LCC is the cost to drive air through the filter. The more efficient the filter is, and the longer it maintains that efficiency, the less energy that is required — and the less a company’s replacement and maintenance costs will be. Unfortunately, the air filters with the most attractive price tags usually aren’t the ones built for long-term efficiency.”
By contrast, Camfil Farr commercial air filters — in use by pharmaceutical manufacturers, biotechnology companies, hospitals, schools, and businesses all over the world — feature innovative designs that bring improved performance while requiring less energy. Indeed, one major pharmaceutical manufacturer that switched to Camfil Farr clean air solutions recently realized more than $1 million in annual savings. And hospitals using the company’s air filters have reported HVAC energy savings of up to 40 percent.
‘At PHARMTECH, we will be explaining why life cycle cost is a far more effective measure for selecting commercial air filters,” says Sean. “We will present the latest industry trends and standards, and demonstrate Camfil Farr’s most recent cleanroom design software, which optimizes filter selection from an LCC point of view.”
Sean will also highlight common reasons for Hepa filter failure and what remedial steps need to be taken, as well as address frequent questions customers have, such as whether to use gel or gasket seals on filters, what effect common cleaning agents have on commercial air filters, and what efficiency and combination of filters should be used in spaces ranging from Grade D to Grade A.
