Filter Dryer Isolators are commonly installed on the discharge port of the Filter Dryer. The main goal is to protect the operators during the discharge operations of potent compounds.
This can be acceptable for OEB3 and OEB4 products. It requires special procedures and PPEs for activities such as filter vacuum or filter plate/cloth replacement after CIP, as well as a cleaning inspection inside the Filter Dryer.
Does that work for a containment down to 10ng/m3?
No, this CPT (Containment Performance Target) requires more containment, for example while dropping the filter base. FPS is very familiar with this application and its special isolator design allows you to get access to the filter baseplate under full containment through the gloves. This makes the cleaning inspection and filter cloth replacement smoother and much faster. This results in a more efficient process, while shortening process time and increasing productivity.
The FPS special design allows the operators to get the access:
The vertical set up and discharge give you much more flexibility and reduce the operator fatigue (no need to move heavy bags on a horizontal path).
Pushbuttons are provided and full communication with a centralized DCS allows the remote control of CIP, alarms monitoring and status of the machine.
