When manufacturing or planning to manufacture potent drugs, a containment unit is needed  to protect the operator and his environment. Our iCaps “C” machines ensure an ≤OEB4 containment level. A unique antistatic patented metal check connectivity allows the machine to have easy tightness. A new metal detector sliding chute discharges potential static electricity from the capsules and guarantees a total emptying of the machine to the drum. An advanced system enables the introduction of test samples inside the metal check head without any contact between the product and the operator.   Continuous pressure monitoring verifies that the equipment remains under negative pressure all the time, preventing dust particles from escaping into the production environment. If a problem is detected, the system automatically changes the valve status to create a safe environment for the operator. The double barrier solution, using our patented Flex Connect pipe in conjunction with a double LDPE barrier and Clip & Cut, permits simple and contained disconnection of peripheral process equipment. The peripheral process equipment can be cleaned in a separate washroom, in order to have clean corridors. Containment systems are modularly upgradable to “HC” High Containment washable solutions.
