General Information

Outer cabinet and work surface are welded stainless steel with a pharmaceutical grade finish. Front lifting viewing panel is easily removed and is gasketed to provide a proper seal when in place. Ergonomic front panel is concave permitting operator to lean into work area, reducing strain. High capacity motor/blower system with speed control extends HEPA filter life. Supply and exhaust HEPA filters are parallel to work area and each other to prevent turbulence. Stainless steel filter screen is removable for easy cleaning. Removable stainless steel work tray facilitates easy clean up and decontamination. Fluorescent lights are externally mounted to minimize heat build-up. The I.V. bar is located in the work area and includes 12 stainless steel hooks.


The work area is continuously bathed with positive pressure ISO Class 5/Class 100 HEPA filtered air to protect product from contamination while a negative inward airflow protects the user. Approximately 70% of the air from each cycle is recirculated through the supply HEPA filter while the remaining air is discharged from the hood through the exhaust HEPA filter.
