Huxley Bertram Compaction Simulators with Containment

Huxley Bertram provides containment as an option with the HB100 Compaction Simulator. A typical specification is as follows:
  • The enclosure contains compounds with data that supports the Roche guideline ‘3B’ also stated as equal to, or less than, OEL of 50 nanograms per cubic meter over an eight hour time-weighted average; also stated as Roche 3B level (< 50 ng/m3/TWA 8 hours).
  • The Simulator has the make-up air from the laboratory room passed through HEPA exhaust filters, and fans into the lab.
  • Movable Glove Panel Sash allows access to the machine for changes to configuration, cleaning, calibration and maintenance. The Sash moves vertically upwards for free access into the work space.
  • Four glove ports are located across the width of the door, giving access above and below the die table.
  • Light guards protect against hands being inserted whilst the machine is in operation.
  • A Pilz safety guard controller monitors containment related sensors and switches.
  • Two canister-pass-throughs of 200mm diameter are located one each on the right-hand and left-hand sides of the machine.
  • Pass-throughs accommodate all normal simulation testing requirements, but not components for re-configuring the machine for Hiestand testing or the reverse.
  • Supply includes 2 sets of filters and continuous liners, one of which will be used during testing. One set of gloves is provided.
  • The enclosure is constructed from 304 electropolished stainless steel with acrylic viewing panels.

Do You Need Assistance In Increasing COVID-19 Testing Throughput 

Huxley Bertram is keen to help us all get through COVID-19. Do you know any firms who need assistance in increasing COVID-19 testing throughput?

A number of firms have asked if we are helping with any of the COVID-19 calls. For instance, increasing the number of ventilators available or helping increase the number of COVID-19 tests available.

We are certainly helping where we can. We are part of a consortium trying to make an alternative ventilator available. Similarly we are in touch with a firm trying to increase its production throughput multi-fold to provide greater capacity for anti-body diagnostic tests.

Typically this is what we do for many clients: help them increase production by removing bottle-necks in production.

In the first instance, this can be simply mechanising manual tasks with equipment like bowl-feeders, rotary tables and bespoke stations like insertion tools.

If you need assistance (or know someone who does) to increase the testing capacity or production capacity for test kits, please put them in touch with us –
