ChemFAST Premium

ChemFAST Premium Ducted Fume cupboards are adopted worldwide for personnel and environmental protection whilst handling harmful agents. They operate in a wide range of disciplines including Chemical and Analytical Laboratory applications.

Fume cupboard applications involving high heat, acid digestion, radiochemistry or ATEX rated atmospheres require further consideration. Options for each of these applications are available.

Many laboratory functions previously carried out on open bench tops are no longer permitted under current health and safety legislation and a suitable method of containing a chemical hazard must be employed.

A fume cupboard is a large enclosure comprising of five sides, either at standing height (Bench Mounted), or full height (Walk-In). Biopharma offer four standard sizes, independently Type Tested and Certified in accordance with BS EN14175.

Ducted Fume Cupboard options:

·       Constant Air Volume (CAV)

·       Stainless Steel (External)

·       Power Requirement (no. sockets)

·       Under Unit Storage

·       Variable Air Volume (VAV)

·       Powder Coated (External)

·       Gas/Vacuum Requirements

·       Support Frame options

Industrial Products

Air Shower

Faster Air Showers are used in clean facilities to remove dust from the outer surfaces of operators prior to entering a clean and dust free environment.

This thorough dust-removal is achieved by blowing filtered clean air at very high speed (exceeding 25 m/s) via special aluminium adjustable air-nozzles onto the operators in the main chamber of the air shower.

 
 
 
 

Cross Flow

Faster Cross Flow Units (CFU) have been designed for the pharmaceutical industry to control powder contamination and reduce operators exposure to powder. Powders are contained within the CFU preventing them from cross-contaminating other areas of the facility and products. Operators working within the CFU are protected from inhalation of potentially hazardous pharmaceuticals. Although primarily used within the pharmaceutical industry, CFU’s can be found whenever there is a risk of dust contamination.

 
 
 
 

HORIZONTAL LAF TROLLEY

Faster Horizontal Laminar Flow (LAF) transfer trolleys are used for the storage and the transfer of products that are sensitive to contamination, between two classified areas, generally separated by autoclaves.

The transfer trolleys are equipped with UPS (on-board battery) to maintain the laminar flow conditions within the LAF transfer trolley at all times. The battery level is monitored by a charge indicator.

 
 
 
 

Pass Boxes

Faster Ventilated Pass Boxes (also known as Transfer Hatches) allow users to transfer material between areas with differing grades of cleanliness. The materials may cross the Pass Box in both directions by different handling operations through two interlocked doors. The basic unit can be fitted with germicidal lamps for sterilisation or decontamination cycles, to deliver the appropriate cleaning procedure according to the application to be performed.

 
 
 
 

Modular LAF Booth

Faster Vertical Laminar Flow Booths offer vertical laminar airflow of Class ISO 3 according to ISO 14644-1. Units can be joined together to create small space up to room sized clean environments. These LAF modules can be supported by stainless steel legs or suspended from the ceiling. Modules are assembled side by side or joined to create the dimensions required. Heavy duty PVC strips provide side containment and optimum efficiency of laminar airflow.
