To meet the growing requirements for personnel protection, product isolation and product integrity, Hosokawa Micron Ltd has pioneered the development of a variety of robust containment technologies for the handling and processing of hazardous materials.
Used extensively in industries such as pharmaceutical, cosmetic, chemical, food, nuclear and defence, containment enclosures are increasingly being used in other industries and in varied applications where safe working environments and clean processing and pristine products are demanded.
In the pharmaceutical industry, the growth in demand for more powerful drugs and increasingly potent active ingredients, along with the demand for pristine products, has led to a need to safeguard and protect both the product and the manufacturing operators. Covering the full range of Operator Exposure Levels, glovebox designs from Hosokawa Micron ensures safe, contained and clean working environments for the processing and handling of potentially hazardous substances.
Hosokawa Micron is a leading supplier of downflow booths, glovebox isolators, filling and weighing systems, laminar flow booths and ancillary equipment. The company prides itself on being able to meet customers’ specific containment needs including containment monitoring; either from its existing range of equipment or in a tailored made solution that offers unique production benefits.
Hosokawa also leads the market in the development of bespoke engineered powder processing equipment for integration within containment enclosures, as well as the design, manufacture and installation of ultra high containment facilities capable of achieving nanogram containment levels.
