Pioneers of high containment technology, Hosokawa Micron Ltd offers a full range of Pharmaceutical Isolators including systems which are designed to Achieve Operator Exposure Levels down to 10ng/m³ (TWA)
In response to the demand for greater operator protection when working with increasingly potent and potentially toxic pharmaceutical products and chemicals, Hosokawa Micron Ltd has developed a range of high containment enclosures or Stott Isolators and Gloveboxes which create a physical barrier between the operator and the product. This enables ‘shirt sleeve operation’ without the need for Personal Protective Equipment.
Stott Isolators are available for both manual and automated handling and processing procedures and are available in single units or multi-cell variants where defined barriers separate individual processes and offer complete operator safety and product integrity. They are ideal for such critical processes as milling, micronising, drying, dispensing and product pack off.
Integrated Containment Technology
Stott Isolators can be designed to contain either Hosokawa or third party processing equipment such as micronisers, tray dryers, granulators etc. Hosokawa Micron’s own range of equipment can be specially designed for installation inside an Isolator to offer a highly engineered, bespoke, contained processing solution.
