To meet growing requirements for protection and product isolation and integrity, Hosokawa Micron 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 Occupational Exposure Limits, glovebox designs from Hosokawa Micron ensures safe, contained and clean working environments for the processing and handling of potentially hazardous substances.
