Operation Of An Overpressure Isolator
A positive pressure isolator is essential to ensure the containment of product handling in a clean and/or sterile atmosphere. The pressure level in the main chamber is higher than the atmospheric pressure.
In order to control the atmosphere or to create a pure atmosphere, all traces of solvents, oxygen and water are removed by purification devices in argon or nitrogen. The addition of an ISO 5 laminar flow may be imperative for microelectronic, medical, nanotechnology and pharmaceutical applications. This provides a particle-free atmosphere, an atmosphere with a controlled dust level depending on ISO 14644-1.
Even in the case of micro-leakage, atmospheric compounds (moisture, oxygen) cannot enter the enclosure. The isolator makes the handling of sensitive products safer.
The isolator is equipped with one or more pairs of handling gloves that are attached to the transparent sides. This ensures the comfort of the users and makes handling possible without breaking the containment. The transfer lock that equips the isolator allows samples and products to pass through while preserving the integrity of the atmosphere inside the enclosure.
In the event of a malfunction or anomaly, safety systems minimize the risk of contamination by triggering automatic processes to protect ongoing manipulations and operations. The overpressure isolator is most often used for characterization, formulation, quality control, dosing, packaging, synthesis and other industrial and/or scientific applications.
