This static-dissipative PVC chamber accommodates introduction of drug powders via a hopper interface. A mixing/packaging station is installed inside the low-humidity, static-safe environment, and Ultra-Low Penetration Air (ULPA) filters continuously scrub the process environment to remove potentially hazardous airborne powders. Dual-side air locks allow sample transfer.
Automated nitrogen control system maintains a sub-ambient RH set point down to 5%RH. Ionizing nozzles neutralize static charges to eliminate electro-static discharge (ESD), and static-dissipative chamber eliminates surface charges and the particles they attract, resulting in a clean, static-safe environment for processing sensitive pharmaceutical powders.
