ILC Dover Introduces Atmospheric Control Module to Safely Contain HPAPIs
By: ILC Dover
The ACM is designed for use with ILC Dover's ArmorFlex® Flexible Isolator. Its precise fan speed and pressure gas regulation facilitates negative pressure operation within flexible-wall isolators. The module works with air or nitrogen, and features a portable and compact design, fully automated vacuum control and breach response, and superior ergonomics for operators.
"Over the past few decades, the pharmaceutical industry has been challenged with the introduction of hormones, steroids, and other cytotoxic materials that are all potentially hazardous to operators and the environment,"
The ACM's fully automated provision of negative air pressure provides additional risk mitigation when operating flexible-wall isolators, further reducing the risk of operator exposure. It can be operated to maintain positive air pressure within the flexible isolator for applications requiring sterility, as well as facilitate relative-humidity control. The module is available in single-fan and dual-fan configurations. The single-fan system satisfies most applications.
"ILC Dover has been a pioneer in developing flexible isolators for the pharmaceutical industry, and after 20 years of designing and building custom isolators for powder containment, our engineers have compiled and standardized isolator specifications, dimensions, configurations, and components that meet the vast majority of our customers' needs," said Fran DiNuzzo, President and CEO at ILC Dover.
ILC Dover's ArmorFlex® Flexible Isolator, coupled with the ACM, can be used for a wide range of applications including weighing or dividing up chemicals, chemical and drug substance synthesis, oral solid dosage production, sampling activities, and packaging operations. It provides superior risk mitigation and enhanced containment performance with no loss of ergonomic benefits when correctly designed and operated. This advanced form of isolation technology prevents any exposure to the operators in the event of a flaw or breach in the containment barrier.
