Safer dual exhaust filters
Magnehelic pressure gauge
Exhaust air is double-filtered through high-quality ULPA filters (per IEST-RP-CC-001.3) with typical efficiency of >99.999% for 0.1 to 0.3 micron particles, better than HEPA filters.
Exclusive dual exhaust filters provide > 100.000 times better protection than single-stage designs.
Microprocessor-based Esco Sentinel™ Silver control system provides visual / audible alarms for airflow.
Magnehelic* pressure gauge is mounted in the rear of the work zone for at-a-glance monitoring of work zone negative pressure.
Neoprene™ gauntlets are single- piece, leak-tested glove assemblies which guarantee maximum protection.
An integrated pass-through with interlocking doors permits materials transfer without risk of environmental contamination.
Esco ISOCIDE™ antimicrobial surface on all painted surfaces minimizes contamination.
An angled cabinet front ensures a comfortable working posture.
Cabinet operates at negative pressure relative to the laboratory in order to prevent migration of pathogenic materials out of the work area.
