LEARN MORE

Separation of process area with barrier

Separation is a primary containment protection, achieved by inflatable seals, gaskets and silicone sealing.

Negative pressure in process area

Negative pressure is a secondary containment protection, preventing contamination if primary containment protection is broken.

Inlet and outlet air filtering

Inlet air is filtered with protection filter that prevents potential backflow of contaminated air. Outlet air is filtered with two filters, the first filtering contaminated air, while the second protecting from potential damage of the first filter.

Feeding and discharging in containment

Contained docking station for feeding and discharging with IBCs containers and continuous liners.

Safe access with glove ports and RTP

Glove ports and RTP are used for safe access and interaction without breaking the containment.

Dry and wet cleaning in containment

Dry cleaning with aspiration enables removal of excessive surface powder. Wet cleaning enables airborne powder binding and wash down.
