SafeFAST Hyper have been widely adopted in manipulation and transfer of mice or other animals. For such kind of application users must be protected from possible contamination coming from the animals inoculated with bacteria and/or viruses and SafeFAST Hyper have been conceived as a real microbiological safety cabinet delivering triple protection to the operator, product and environment.
The pressurized air pushed into the plenum of the main motor blowers passes through the main H 14 HEPA/ULPA filter and then downwards, in a laminar flow pattern with an air cleanliness in Class ISO 3 according to ISO 14644, into the work chamber. The air is then mixed with the external air which enters the cabinet from the lateral openings and it is sucked from the two exhaust motor blowers, in the lower part of the cabinet, through the pre-filter positioned under the perforated work surface.
Part of the air is exhausted trough the exhaust H 14 HEPA/ULPA filter positioned on the bottom of the cabinet, this extracted air let air come in from the outside (front barrier) ensuring the protection of the operator/environment. The not exhausted air is sucked from the two main motor blowers in the upper part of the cabinet trough the four intake up channels situated in the corners of the cabinet.
Dual access front of 300 mm that allows working and maintenance from both sides at the same time
High Level Lighting: Wide safety glass side-windows with the ideal positioning and sizing of LED lights system, provide the highest lighting level (> 1000Lux ) to the work area. A dimmer is available as standard fitting to adjust light intensity.
Electrical lifting system allowing lifting up of the whole cabinet that ease working upright.
Environmental sound comfort of the animals thanks to the work surface made by TRESPA.
Gap of 100mm for easing introduction of cages in the chamber.
80 mm knees space for operator comfort (additional 80 mm can be obtained with optional knee rest panel).
Stainless bars on both sides easing positioning of the cages
ECS® Eco Controling 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 DC 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.
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.
Work surface in TRESPA for delivering superior environmentally sound solution that is vital for such kind of application (alternatively stainless steel work surface available upon request).
Work surface raise from 800 to 1100 mm thanks to electrical lifting system.
Front and side windows made of 6 mm tempered safety glass with hinges to keep the front glass upright.
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.
Prefiltration: Inlet G4 pre-filter efficiency 80≤AM≤90 according to EN 779 and UNI 10339.
Working aperture at 300mm and maximum aperture at 570 mm
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
• uncorrect position of front sash-window
• clogging of HEPA/ULPA filters
• end of life-cycle of UV lamp and saturation of activated carbon filter (if fitted)
• blockage in the exhaust duct ( if fitted )
• fan-motor malfunction
• power failure
Aluminum front closure panel that ensures the sealing of the cabinet for sterilization/fumigation.
D.O.P.-DEHS inlet port for testing the HEPA/ULPA filters.
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.
