Containment booths provide operator, process and / or product protection by utilizing HEPA filtered unidirectional laminar downflow to maintain an ISO 5 environment at rest within the work zone and capture particulates during open handling processes.
The standard Esco DFBG2 has over 420 possible dimensional models and approximately 3.5 million possible system configurations ensuring that Esco can provide a standard solution to fit your specific process and facility requirements. Should a standard option not fit your requirements Esco can offer a customized solution.
The DFBG2 is designed such that through the different configurations it can be applied; but not limited to, the following markets:
- Pharmaceutical - Biological - Cosmetic - Animal - Nutraceutical - Robotic - Food - Electronic
Pharmacon Downflow Booth

Basic Principles Laminar airflow velocity of 0.45m/s ± 20% (89 ft/min) measured 150mm (6") from terminal HEPA filter or diffuser face
Containment Performance Target (CPT's) ≤ 100 µg/m3 over an 8 hour Time Weighted Average (TWA) when used with proper operator techniques.
CPT's of ≤ 10 µg/m3 over an 8 hour TWA are achievable with the use of a high containment screen
ISO 5 work space environment at rest conditions
Enhanced cGMP practices
Cross contamination control through negative and positive pressure environment options
