Extract Fan for Negative and Positive Pressure Isolators

Negative Pressure Isolator Extract Fan
Negative Pressure
Positive Pressure Isolator Extract Fan
Positive Pressure

Amercare isolators can be supplied with a remote extract fan. The fans are made from an all polypropylene moulded construction and are designed to be resistant to a wide range of corrosive fumes and liquids.

As standard the fans comes supplied mounted onto a plastic weather pedestal for installations on roof tops. They also come fitted with an electrical isolator, anti-vibration mounts and a drain for the pedestal. The Positive Pressure Fan is also available mounted to a metal bracket as shown opposite.

The motor powering the extract fans are a direct drive single phase model with an IP54 / IP55 rating.

Key features:

  • Corrosion resistant
  • All moulded polypropylene construction
  • Suitable for external use
  • No routine maintenance required
  • LG0 Handing as standard

Continuous Particle Monitoring

Continuous Particle Monitoring
Laminar Flow Isolator Version
Continuous Particle Monitoring2
Turbulent Flow Isolator Version

This option is available on all Amercare isolators and allows for connection of the isolator’s main processing chamber to a particle counter to continuously monitor in use particle levels.

The system consists of an isokinetic sampling head, a flexible support to allow for the sampling head to be positioned near to the process, and a shut off valve to enable leak testing of the isolator. The particle counting body is mounted externally to the isolator with a manual valve to isolate the counter from the process chamber when leak testing. An automated shut off system is available if required.

The CPM system is compatible with many different manufacturers 1cfm particle counting systems.

Key features:

  • Stainless Steel Isokinetic sampling head
  • Flexible support to allow for repositioning

Isolator Bypass Valve

Isolator Bypass Valve
Normal Running Configuration
Isolator Bypass Valve2
Leak Testing Configuration

All Amercare isolators can be fitted with an optional Bypass Valve.

This valve is designed so that when isolator leak tests are carried out the air that normally passes through the isolator and into the extract duct during normal operation passes straight into the extract duct. This means that the room pressures are not affected during the leak test due to the change in air extract volume.

Changes in room pressures can have a major effect on leak test results.

Key features:

  • Works on all designs of isolators
  • Can be retrofitted on existing isolators
  • Low cost
  • Simple to use
  • Integrated baffle to adjust extract flow when bung removed

Calibrator Autodipper

Calibrator Autodipper

All Amercare Radiopharmacy Isolators have the option to be fitted with a Calibrator Autodipper.

When fitted the Autodipper assembly moves a bobbin that carriers either a vial or syringe containing the sample that that requires its activity measuring via the Ionization Chamber. Automating this process with help reduce hand dose to the operator(s).

The movement of the bobbin is controlled by a foot operated switch meaning that there is no need to remove your hands for the gloves to operate the autodipper. The system is designed so that through the use of different inserts a wide range of either vials or syringes can be safely located in the bobbin.

The Calibrator Autodipper can be retrofitted to existing Radiopharmacy Isolators.

Key features:

  • Helps in reducing hand dose to operators
  • Compatible with a wide range of vials and syringes
  • Foot operated
  • Easy to use
  • Can be retrofitted onto existing Radiopharmacy isolators
  • Can be retrofitted on existing isolators
  • Low cost
  • Simple to use
  • Integrated baffle to adjust extract flow when bung removed

Integrated Heater Chiller

Integrated Heated Chiller
Integrated Heated Chiller2

Amercare Heater Chiller Well is a 300mm x 200mm x 200mm well chamber integrated into the base of the isolator. Temperature control is by means of solid state Peltier type thermo electric devices which allow the Well temperature to be set anywhere in the range -5°C to +40°C.

The Well and the Well lid are fully insulated to maintain an even temperature with minimal heat loss and to minimise condensation during chilling operations. The Well lid is stainless steel and is fully flush with the isolator floor. The lid is removed using a magnetic handle. The handle can be easily removed such that the isolator floor can be used for normal operations even over the Well position.

Items can be placed directly into the well, or Amercare can supply custom designed and made blocks for customers tube/vessel requirements.
