Installation and maintenance of a clean room is very expensive.
A more economical alternative solution is to use isolators. Rota Val, a member of the Gericke Group, has developed the Hypergienic rotary feeder, which is specially designed for installation in an isolator. The Hypergienic air lock is designed to comply with the most demanding pharmaceutical standards and is machined from a block of metal.
It can be disassembled in the glovebox without tools and cleaned by a CIP (clean in place) process. All surfaces are designed to allow the cleaning liquid to run off.
The rotary feeder conforms to the ATEX regulations for Zone 20 and can be used as a safety air lock for separating different zones. For detailed information about the Hypergienic air lock see www.hypergienic.co.uk.
