Isolator systems are designed to meet the challenges and market requirements for low OEL containment systems in Pharmaceutical, Biotechnology, Medical devices, Radiopharmaceutical and Nuclear industries. Isolator technology provides a safe working environment, both ergonomically and safety for operators in research, manufacture, testing and handling hazardous materials.
The concept of isolation technology, which is well known throughout the pharmaceutical industry, is protecting the process from the operator and/or the operator from the process. Although the development and improvement of isolator technology is continuous it should be noted that the most significant changes have been in the form of its increased acceptance, backed by guidelines and standards produced by regulatory bodies.
An isolator is a decontaminated unit, supplied with Class 100 (ISO 5) or higher air quality that provides uncompromised, continuous isolation of its interior from the external environment
We generate conceptual designs based upon proven solutions, before finally compiling product specifications, standard operating procedures (SOPs) and working schematics (P&IDs).
We can create full scale, mock–ups which take into account ancillary equipment and manipulation devices. The client review follows, at which stage any necessary modifications are made.
Manufactured in high quality stainless or other alloy steels the Isolator fabrications are formed, welded and polished to exacting standards and client requirements.
Only when the equipment is fully built and fully tested to design parameters is it exposed to a range of tests and standard operating procedures (SOPs). These can include, internal / external surface swabbing, dust in air monitoring, and full scale operational tests of performance, all being performed within our controlled test environment.
Extract Technology dispensing and sub-division Isolators are suitable for both large and small scale operations. They provide operator, environment and product protection, and facilitate both the loading and unloading of products which require containment. They enable bulk and process container product transfer, feature integrated weighing systems, and afford low OEL protection. They are available in a range of versions, giving transfer from differing bulk containers into FIBCs, drums, process vessels, bags or liners.
Extract Technology Sampling Isolators are ideal for use in warehouse or production areas. They provide low OEL protection and can be used in both positive and negative environments. A range of options are available, including contained sample removal and multi-chamber protection.
Extract Technology Charging Isolators enable the manual charging of product by weight or volume. Auto product feed to weight systems with contained bulk container load/unloading is possible for use on either same floor process or multi floor charging systems. You can choose from a number of product transfer configurations from a range of vessels into IBC’s, FIBC’s, drums, reactors, vessels, sacks or bags, all with the option of safe empty drum “bag out” removal system
Extracts Technology Pack Off Isolators allows you to precisely offload to weight, whilst providing product, operator and environment protection. Creating a physical barrier between the operator and product these units are capable of handling some of the most potent pharmaceutical compounds. Two chamber pack off Isolators incorporate automated in-feed and out-feed conveyors, product control, inserting system and product sampler. Product pack-off Isolators accommodate multi drum sizes and continuous liner facilities.
