Tight Space Enclosure

A reactor enclosure fitted onto the nozzle used for materials addition and in-process sampling. The reactor is on a mezzanine in a 1960's facility with much immovable equipment in the shared non-cleanable space.

 
 

Retrofit Solutions

The cost of scratch building a contained pilot plant for performing scale-up studies of highly potent compounds has become prohibitive! Our clients have a long history of performing functional retrofit of existing facilities and equipment. Indeed, this is where FabOhio, Inc. first entered into the Pharmaceutical Industry in 1973 in partnership with one of the largest manufacturing company's at that time. Once proof of performance was established, flexible glovebags and enclosures became the mainstay of the industry.

 
 

Multi-Purpose Containment

There is virtually no size limit that applies to flexible enclosures. Existing uses range from small utility to full manufacturing suite assemblies with gowning and decontamination built in. They all have the advantage of being low cost installations which can be assembled and used within hours of receipt. They are also easy to dispose of. Proper planning allows the use of external frame supports which allows for the entire flexible enclosure to be collapsed without dis-assembly, rolled up, and disposed of in a burn drum.

 
A Mobile Materials Transfer Glovebag Enclosure  Multiple ways of materials entry allows for drummed materials or bagged material entry.. Exhaust vents can be coupled together for purging or gas scrubbing purposes. The entire enclosure can be inerted with nitrogen, argon, etc. making for safe materials handling at <4% oxygen conditions.

Unimpeded Personnel Visibility  The wide mouth of the glovesleeve entry plus film flexibility provides long reach for a containment device. The personnel reach exceeds the conventional 21 inch reach designed for hardwall containment. This allows for a deeper enclosure design where needed.
