Expansion project helps Cloth Division clean up
Jun '11
Chemviron Carbon Cloth Division is pleased to announce the next phase in its multi million pound investment programme to expand the Durham facility.

News from Chemviron Carbon's Cloth Division – manufacturers of Zorflex Activated Carbon Cloth. Following the installation of a state-of-the-art-dryer in June 2008, the next phase will involve the creation of a mezzanine floor in the main factory to accommodate a new clean room.

This area is dedicated to the production of the Company's medical device products such as wound dressings. The new clean room will ensure the Company maintains compliance with the ISO 13485 standard which is awarded for the manufacture of medical products.

The final clean room size will measure 170 square metres, almost twice the size of the Company's current clean room. The new facility will be a multi-faceted area containing a specific room for operator gowning then separate rooms for laminating, cutting and dedusting Zorflex products. The final facility will be constructed to ensure compliance with the Class 7 1SO14644-4 standard for clean rooms.

The position of the new clean room within the factory is designed to create more space on the shop floor. This will allow for the installation of additional furnaces in order to increase the Company's production capacity to meet future demand.
