Hi guys,

 

Just throwing this out there to see if anyone has any experience using anti static devices to reduce hair contamination/ complaints? Supplier information, installation hurdles any information really.  

 

Much appreciated.

I don´t know anti static devices for hairs (or maybe I do know, but don´t know this relationship ;) )

Do you have that many complaints, because of hair?

 

What kind of PRP do you have implemented? Thinking about hairnet, special dedicated work clothes, hygiene zones, general hygiene rules etc....

hello, I don´t know EXACTLY what you mean by anti static devices; but in a facility I audited they use the common one to brush animal like hair (i.e., cat long hair) in a visual inspection by employee step , and it seems to have good results!

hope this helps!

:)

We use static bars because some of our packaging creates static electricty which would shock our workers if left unchecked -

Hi,

 

there are general possibilities and measures to reduce product contamination by hairs (s.o.).

The second is to reduce anti-static of the equipment. This is mainly a question of engineering. In the packaging industry where plastic foils run with very high speed there is a high risk of attracking charged materials from the air like dust (any dust is negatively charged) end up with insects etc. They have lot of experience with such problems.

The third could be something like air ionization. I have applied this technique  for a dedicated filling area in pharmaceutical and medical device industry (before I came to food) - in this special case small amounts of a very dry powder has to be filled in a plastic vessel to be applied as bone void filler/bone cement. The vessel itself is used as a mixing bowl to prepare the cement.

In my opinion the order of measures should be 1, 2, 3.

Thanks guys, appreciate the information. I understand GMP is probably the best form of control and mitigation of hair contamination, this is just more thinking outside of the box.
