qmarkWhat are the advantages of Flexible Containment over conventional systems?

  • Reduced cost of ownership
  • Reduced delivery timings
  • Elimination of cleaning procedures, cleaning validation

qmarkWill a flexible containment system deliver the same containment standards?

Yes. Providing a flexible containment system is operated in accordance with the developed SOP’s the performance will equal a hard shell isolator.

qmarkWhat are the ergonomic advantages of a flexible film containment system?

Because of the flexibility of the containment envelope the soloPLUS is extremely user friendly.

qmarkWhat is the operating life cycle of a flexible film containment system?

Some flexible film containment systems can operate for several years. Often in laboratory applications where batch to batch cross contamination is not an issue, although flexible containment systems are designed for short life cycle – manufacture batch specific operations. At Solo Containment longevity is part of our build specification.

qmarkHow do the costs of ownership compere between flexible and hard shell?

A typical “glove bag” flexible containment system represents a low percentage of the cost of a hard shell isolator.

qmarkCan my flexible containment system be changed after installation if my process changes?

Yes. One of the great advantages of flexible film containment technology is that new enclosures can be supplied to suit changing process needs with reasonable price variations.

qmarkCan flexible film containment dissipate static charge?

At Solo all of our films for powder contact are FDA compliant – permanent anti static grade. Test samples can be provided.

qmarkCan flexible containment systems handle solvent contact?

For solvent applications we provide compatibility samples. Typical designs for solvent saturated solids use high air change rates and solvent splash guards.

qmarkCan Flexible film containment systems operate at negative pressure for added safety?

Solo offer a wide range of designs that are capable of operating at Negative pressure. Our project team will help select the correct exhaust fan, and filtration system for your application.

qmarkWhat glove choices are available with flexible film containment systems?

A wide range of gloves and sleeves are available from chemically impervious materials, cytotoxic grade or low cost nitrile.

Understanding OEBs:

  • Ambient pressure glove bags
    When supplied with P3 Breather filters are usually limited to OEB 2 or 3 compound
  • Negative pressure isolators on a support frame
    When used with our H14 HEPA system are graded for OEB 4 Compound
  • Negative pressure flex isolators
    With “Push-Push” change double HEPA filter exhaust and multiple stage contamination free material exit ports are graded for OEB5 comp
