It is of critical importance that Pharmaceutical facility process air and gas lines are monitored for microbial contaminants. While air sampling and other quality procedures are obviously required, regulatory standards demand that process air/gas systems used for production activities (e.g., product pushes, overlays, material blow down, etc.) receive routine quality testing, with the same level of quality oversight. The best tool for microbial testing of a compressed air/gas system is a properly designed microbial air sampler.
The RCG Confined Space Sampler
At Emtek, we have a long history of designing easy-to-use, accurate, and reliable air sampling equipment. We know that air monitoring is a key and vital component of your Quality Systems, and that it can impact your production of quality product on a daily basis. Without the right equipment, your tests could be compromised or worse, your product could be at risk of contamination.
That’s why we’ve developed the RCG Compressed Air and Gas sampler. It’s a compressed air/gas monitoring system designed to recover microbial organisms from these critical production systems, and it provides results that you can count on. The RCG is a remote Slit-to-Agar Impaction device that is so compact it can also serve as an ambient air sampler (e.g., as the R2S, or RCG Confined Space Sampler) in areas where most air sampler can’t, or shouldn’t be placed.
A few of the RCG specs include:
• Solid construction: Aluminum/316 stainless steel materials
• Simple cleaning and durability: Clear polycarbonate dome with inlet assembly
• Portable and convenient: 4 lb. weight, 7.5” by 5” diameter
• Flexible sampling: 0-40 minutes of monitoring per cycle
• Quick sampling: Operates at at 50 and 100 LPM for compressed air/gas testing
• Works in conjunction with the EMTEK Microbial High Pressure Diffuser
Compressed Air monitoring is a delicate science that requires only the best equipment. Our air sampling equipment is the best in the industry, and is backed by our incredible support staff and our guarantee that every product we make will exceed your expectations. At EMTEK, we know that manufacturing great equipment is just one small part of keeping clients satisfied. We’re happy to answer any questions you might have to help you find the right microbial air sampler. For more information please visit www.emtekair.com.
