Solo are introducing their new API Sub-division Isolator at POWTECH 2016. The Isolator, from their soloPLUS product range, provides a cost effective and easy to use alternative to a rigid shell system.
Designed for easy process equipment integration, their soloPLUS product range has demonstrated its containment ability in many pharmaceutical applications. Operator protection at sub µg/m3 levels are consistently achieved when operated in accordance with Solo’s potent compound handling procedures. Engineered with rigid shell design principles in mind, the overall ergonomics and operator interface are further improved by the flexible film construction.
To ensure the highest containment standards, the soloPLUS operation is based on a proven ‘one-way’ operating strategy. Materials loading is typically through a loading airlock and reach into this is only permitted with contamination free gloves. All handling of API’s or hazardous materials is confined to a central negatively pressurised product handling chamber designed with ergonomic access to the process. Product exit can be via contained valve technology, a conventional bag out system or a dedicated exit airlock.
To avoid batch to batch contamination, the full film enclosure, including all enclosure mounted filter elements, can be vacuum collapsed at the end of each manufacturing campaign for safe disposal.
The API Sub-division Isolator displayed at POWTECH is set up as a fully OEB 5 compliant API transfer isolator. It showcases the Solo negative pressure airflow system and features a ‘push-push’ safe change HEPA exhaust system and a fully protected continuous liner system to maximise containment performance.
The Isolator permits drum sub-division, transfer to the Ezi-Dock CSV charge bag and contamination free drum disposal.
The unit has been deliberately designed as a compact easy to transport unit and can be set up to operate in under an hour.
Following POWTECH 2016, the Isolator will become part of a Solo European Roadshow tour. If you would like to see the unit for yourself and introduce your colleagues to the benefits of flexible film containment technology, please contact Solo directly to set up a site workshop meeting for later in 2016.
