Bringing a New Dimension to Containment

28 November 2011


Howorth Pharma has added a new product to its portfolio of market-leading High Containment Screens with the recent launch of its new 5D model. The 5D HCS offers unparalleled flexibility combined with high levels of operator protection, whether in new or retro-fit applications.

Developed in collaboration with existing booth operators, the 5D HCS offers the full range of movement side to side, front to back, up and down, and with controlled rotation, but is also able to tilt.

This flexibility ensures maximum comfort for the user, thus making it possible for them to work as safely and effectively as possible. As with all Howorth’s screens, the 5D HCS is available in a variety of sizes and materials and with optional extras, so can be designed specifically to fit clients’ requirements.

Howorth’s High Containment Screens are a simple but effective way of boosting the containment capabilities of any downflow booth. Downflow booths are designed to protect the operator from dust rising in to the breathing zone when handling potent substances. The HCS is fitted into the booth, forming an actual barrier between the operator and the dust source, keeping all dust-laden air close to the booth’s exhaust grilles. As they can be retrofitted into existing booths, they are the ideal solution if a manufacturer starts working with more potent compounds that may require additional operator protection. Independent testing of Howorth’s HCS has confirmed that OELs as low as 0.5µ/m³ can be achieved
