RIVERDALE, N.J. — Camfil Farr has opened a new 130,000-square-foot facility in Washington, N.C., for the manufacture of filter containment systems. Four times the size of the former plant, the facility includes expanded space for research and development activities as well as production. It is the new home for the company's growing Safety & Protection Division, which has recently added staff in engineering, sales, and manufacturing.

The new facility will produce a range of specialized products including bag-in/bag-out air filtration systems for the containment of hazardous airborne contaminants. These products have long been used in nuclear facilities, hospitals, chemical and biomedical plants, laboratories, and other locations requiring maximum safety and protection. Now many government buildings, "safe havens," command centers, and strategic buildings are also being equipped with these customized systems as a safeguard against the threat of bioterrorism, says the company.

In addition to bag-in/bag-out systems, the Washington facility will also manufacture a line of high-efficiency gas adsorbers (HEGA filters) and PharmaSeal® ducted ceiling modules for cleanroom applications.
