Hybrid Isolator designed for drug addition vessel. Dual HEPA filtration system with Bag-in/Bag-out option filters 99.99% of particulates. Front airfoils and rear plenums direct airflow across workspace and away from personnel. Hinged front doors allow access to equipment and easy product loading/unloading. Minihelic gauge monitors filter status and face velocity.

SAFETY.  The Hybrid Isolator series provides containment for highly toxic applications using APIs that need more safety than an opened face enclosure. FSI engineering controls are built in to prevent loss of containment. Third Party testing has proven containment on these units to below 50 ng/m3 based on process and quantity.

DESIGN.  Designed as the next step in containment above the Top Mounted CVE, this unit is able to effectively contain using airfoils and plenums to create laminar airflow across the work surface and reduce eddies and turbulence. The Hybrid Isolator system is equipped with dual 4” HEPA filters that can be recirculated into the lab or sent directly to house exhaust.

PHENOLIC BASE. The chemically resistant phenolic base is dished to maintain spills and protects the work surface from harmful chemicals.

DUAL SPEED FAN.  This enclosure includes a 2 speed adjustable fan that automatically switches between high and low speed depending on the draft shield being attached or unattached.

ACRYLIC WALLS.  The clear acrylic walls are used for increased ambient light transmission.

INTERNAL LED LIGHT.  This enclosure features an internal LED light for improved visibility inside of the enclosure and can be adjusted directly onto the application. This light comes standard with every Hybrid Isolator Enclosure.

STANDARD SIZES.  The Hybrid Isolator series is available in 3, 4, 5, 6, and 8 foot standard width options. Customs are available.

With the explosion in usage of High Potency Active Pharmaceutical Ingredients (HPAPI’s), containment of these compounds and personnel protection have become of major concern to scientists. There is often a high expense associated with new equipment designed to handle the task. In order to combat these potentially high capital outlays, many companies are looking at alternative methods of containment, including modification of existing equipment. The Hybrid Isolator, offered by Flow Sciences, Inc., is one such method of reducing the cost of containment.

The Hybrid Isolator is designed to protect workers from exposure to chemicals by fully encompassing equipment used by scientists during research and development, and manufacturing processes. The Isolator has been developed using Flow Sciences’ expertise in Computational Fluid Dynamics (CFD) and can be designed and manufactured to fit the customer’s needs.

Air distributes evenly, without roll, across the HEPA filters and leaves through an adjustable speed fan with integrated alarm.

Blue indicates gentle, low velocity ambient room air entering
over the air foils and being pulled across the work surface
through the rear plenums.

A Velocity Profile demonstrates the gentle airflow across the work surface shown in blue.

A Particle Trace shows the distribution of particulates as they travel to the back plenums of the enclosure, through the HEPA filters and out of the exhaust port.
