PPI isolators provide personnel protection when handling toxic substances. Personnel protection is achieved by means of a barrier (isolator housing with glove ports) between the operator and the toxic substance. Additionally, an HEPA supply and exhaust air filter system generates a defined negative pressure in the working area of the isolator, thus increasing the level of safety for the operator. The filter elements are replaced free of contamination.
Products and material are transferred inwards and outwards by means of a transfer system (RTP or airlock).
The working area can be cleaned manually with water using a spray gun (WIP).
All safety-relevant functions are constantly monitored electronically.
