NEW Esco Pharmacon Downflow Booths Picture

Singapore June 22, 2009 -- Esco announces the launch of its NEW range of Pharmacon Downflow Booths. Downflow booths are used in the pharmaceutical, fine chemical and food industries, for operations such as sampling, grinding, dispensing and filling, which generate airborne particles; when processes involve hazardous, toxic or sensitising materials and when operators, adjoining areas require protection from exposure to aerosols of the process materials.

Esco Pharmacon Downflow Booths feature:
  • Modular Designs - standard booth width starts at 1.5m (4.92'), and can be increased in 0.5m (~19.5") increments.
  • Single, Two Stage or Three Stage HEPA or ULPA filtration.
  • Re-Circulatory Airflow or Single Pass Airflow if solvent or hazardous fumes are present in the process (may also require explosion proof electrics).
  • Optional Cooling Coils to offset heat gains in re-circulatory airflow systems. (Typical heat gains ~10-15°C, dependent on process).
  • Proven Containment Performance - verified according to the ISPE Good Practice Guide, Assessing the Particulate Containment Performance of Pharmaceutical Equipment.

    "Pharmacon Downflow Booths are premium containment products, designed/built by Esco and harnessing our critical containment technology expertise of over 30 years," said XQ Lin, Esco Vice President. "These products expand Esco's market reach into the cosmetics, fine chemicals, pharmaceuticals and other industries, where safety is paramount."
