SafeFAST Light are the new concept of compact class II A2 Microbiological Safety Cabinet manufactured by Faster, in which the choice of materials of construction of the highest quality guarantees conformity to the strictest safety standards. Faster SafeFAST Light are Microbiological Safety Cabinets - designed and built to performance requirements of the EN-12469:2000 European Standard and NSF/ANSI 49 American Standard, with 70% of the air re-circulated via the main Class H14 HEPA/ULPA filter within the cabinet, whilst the remaining 30% is discharged through an exhaust Class H14 HEPA/ULPA filter.
The ambient air is drawn in from the slots at the stainless-steel base of the front opening and it then passes under the work surface, from where it is drawn up and blown into the plenum of the re-circulating and exhaust fan(s).
The “bio-dynamic sealing system” of the negative pressure plenum ensures that all contaminated particles are kept inside the system and are automatically drawn to the plenum or pressure chamber to be captured by the main re-circulating and exhaust H 14 HEPA/ULPA filters.
The fan system assures that no part of the cabinet comes ever under positive contaminated pressure to the laboratory, thus protecting and preserving the environment and operating personnel from exposure to agents of bio-contamination.
70% of the filtered air is re-circulated (after passing through a H14 HEPA/ULPA filter) in an air cleanliness in Class ISO 3, according to ISO 14644-1 laminar flow pattern downwards into the work chamber and the remaining 30% is exhausted to atmosphere through another H14 HEPA/ULPA filter.
Dimensions: SafeFAST Light is the smallest microbiological safety cabinet available in the market with overall width dimension of 830mm.
Ergonomic Design: The angled sloping (7°) front hinged safety-glass provides optimum visibility of all objects placed in the interior workspace. The frontal opening is set to 200 mm. The whole front of the safety cabinet can also be opened upwards as it is hinged on the top – in order to allow easy access for complete and effective cleaning and decontamination
ECS® Eco Controlling System: The new ECS® microprocessor employs the latest innovative methods of integrated management of all principal functions of ventilation and filtration - self-regulating all the main filtration and ventilation system components - compensating for declining pressure drops and restoring power balance. Combining the use of AC motor-blowers and certified low pressure-drop filters, the new ECS® controlling system optimize power consumption, reducing CO2 emissions into the environment.
Anti Bacterial Coating: Exclusive Dupont™ ALESTA® anti-bacterial “Ag+ cations-based solution”, capable to prevent microbial contamination of surfaces thereby inhibiting long term surface growth.
Silent Operation: The TNT plenum, the structures of the electric motors of the fans fitted on their antivibration mounts and the software itself designed to provide optimum air handling characteristics guarantee quiet operation of this silent safety cabinet, with sound-pressure levels recorded way below the parameters specified in the current EN:12469 European Standard for Microbiological Safety Cabinets.
High Level Lighting: The safety glass side-windows with the ideal positioning and sizing of the light-system provide the highest level of luminosity to the work area.
Easy handling and maintenance: SafeFAST Light can pass through standard 800 mm wide door openings thanks to the overall depth of just 652mm. All service operations are available from the front of the cabinet.. All service operations are available from the front of the cabinet.
Electrical socket fitted as standard.
External structure in epoxy powder coated cold-rolled steel for excellent corrosion resistance to the attack by aggressive common chemicals. Alternatively special models with external structure made in AISI 304L stainless steel for superior cleanability are also available on demand.
Rear wall in stainless steel AISI 304 L, designed to conform to requirements and pass the “cleanability test”.
Work surface in AISI 304L which is easily removable for carrying out routine cleaning and/or autoclaving sterilization procedures; closed or perforated upon request.
Front window: Stratified hinged safety glass to give easy access to large items. It is provided with gas springs to keep it open during maintenance or sanitization operations.
Re-circulating and extractor fan: SafeFAST Light are supplied with single centrifugal fan.
Servicing side glass with ports for service taps installation.
Filtration: H14 HEPA/ULPA filters with an efficiency better than 99,995 % MPPS (EN-1822).
Operation Condition: Air cleanliness in Class ISO 3 as per ISO:EN 14644-1.
The user-friendly practical keyboard and the rear-lit LCD will continuously display all required data keeping the user constantly informed of the cabinet conditions in operation, and in particular:
- display of laminar airflow velocity and frontal air barrier velocity
- display of inside and outside temperature
- display of residual lifetime of HEPA/ULPA filters, UV Lamp and activated carbon filter (if fitted)
- display of total number of hours of operation
- display of saturation level of HEPA/ULPA filters.
Audio-visual alarms provided for:
- out of range or incorrect laminar airflow velocity and frontal air barrier velocity
- clogging of HEPA/ULPA filters
- front window opened
- end of life-cycle of UV lamp
- blockage in the exhaust duct ( if fitted )
- fan-motor malfunction
- power failure
Lighting: fluorescent tubes in built-in housing, placed outside the contaminated area
D.O.P.-DEHS inlet port for testing the HEPA/ULPA filters
Aluminum front closure panel that ensures the sealing of the cabinet for sterilization/fumigation.
UV sterilizing lamp (optional) installed on the aluminum front closure panel complete two switch-off countdown timers, one variable on a 0-3 hours scale (1 minute steps), the other set to 3 fixed hours.
