Containment Solutions For The Filtration of Hazardous Materials

Increasing legislation for the protection of operators and the environment from hazardous materials presents challenges to a diverse range of companies, including those involved in the Nuclear Industry and manufacturing companies using solvents and chemicals. The Nuclear industry and manufacturers of Active Pharmaceutical Ingredients (API’s), Fine Chemicals, Paints, Chemicals and Solvents typically use filtration to remove contaminants from liquids and gases and these processes will be encompassed by this legislation.

Example Applications

  • Reactor coolants
  • Fuel pond waters
  • Decontamination fluids
  • Solvent filtration
  • API production
  • Manufacture of potent drug products
  • Chemical processing
  • Production of antibiotics

Amazon Filters has developed a range of contained products for the filtration of hazardous fluids, including designing fully bespoke contained filtration systems. Our products range from simple fully disposable capsule filters to flexible film full containment systems. For applications where waste volume needs to be minimised, users will find our polymeric filters highly compressible. Therefore, we can provide the product to suit all budgetary, technical, health, safety and environmental requirements.

To fully support companies requiring filtration processes for Nuclear applications, Amazon Filters has recently sought and achieved Fit for Nuclear (F4N) status. This Government initiated programme, overseen by the Nuclear Advanced Manufacturing Research Centre (AMRC) involves scrutiny of all aspects of the company’s business, but puts a greater emphasis on quality and safety systems. It is designed to help those involved in the Nuclear Industry to identify the best suppliers. f4n
