SmartFAST have been widely adopted in many sectors of industry and in science laboratories for use when handling no-risk cell cultures or non-pathogenic biological specimens when the aim is to provide a high degree of protection factor to the samples and the products on the worktop.
SmartFAST have applications in a wide range of disciplines such as: microbiology sterility tests, nucleic acids used in thermocycling,cell culture, sterile manipulations, molecular biology, DNA amplifications, PCR.
Although SmartFAST is primary conceived as positive pressure laminar flow cabinet, it is equipped with a special closing panel on the top which allow to switch from positive to negative pressure work. Therefore the are two working possibilities:
Positive pressure (main operational principle): The environment air is drawn from the top of the cabinet and then pulled downwards and filtered by virtue of H14 HEPA/ULPA filter into the working area in positive pressure creating vertical laminar air flow pattern.
Negative pressure (alternative operational principle): The ambient air is drawn in
through the slots of the stainless steel base at the front opening and it then passes under the work surface, from where it is drawn up and channeled after filtration through a H14 HEPA/ULPA filter in laminar air flow condition (about 90%) and exhausted outside (about 10%) from the upper side of the cabinet.
To exchange the two operational systems, it is sufficient to change the position of the closing plate on the top of the cabinet.
External structure in epoxy powder coated cold-rolled steel for excellent corrosion resistance to the attack by aggressive common chemicals. Alternatively special models with external structure made in AISI 304L stainless steel for superior cleanability are also available on demand.
Rear wall in stainless steel AISI 304 L, designed to conform to requirements and pass the “cleanability test”.
Work surface in stainless steel AISI 304L fixed in one piece perforated.
Front window: Stratified hinged safety glass to give easy access to large items. It is provided with gas springs to keep it open during maintenance or sanitization operations.
Filtration:H14 HEPA/ULPA filter with an efficiency better than 99,995 % MPPS (EN-1822).
Operation Condition: Air cleanliness in Class ISO 3 as per ISO:EN 14644-1.
Motor blower: direct coupled motor, electronic speed controlled to maintain a constant laminar air flow of 0.45 m/sec, and compensate for a partially clogged filter up to a maximum plenum pressure of 40 mm of water.
Servicing side glass with ports for service taps installation.
The user-friendly practical keyboard and the rear-lit LCD (optional) will continuously display all required data keeping the user constantly informed of the cabinet conditions in operation, and in particular:
• display of laminar airflow velocity
• display of inside and outside temperature
• display of residual lifetime of HEPA/ULPA filter, UV Lamp.
• display of total number of hours of operation
• display of saturation level of HEPA/ULPA filter
Audio-visual alarms (optional) provided for:
• out of range or incorrect laminar airflow velocity
• front window opened
• clogging of HEPA/ULPA filter
• end of life-cycle of UV lamp
• fan-motor malfunction
• power failure
Lighting: fluorescent tubes in built-in housing, placed outside the sterile area.
D.O.P.-DEHS inlet port for testing the HEPA/ULPA filters
UV sterilizing lamp (optional) installed on the aluminum front closure panel complete two switch-off countdown timers, one variable on a 0-3 hours scale (1 minute steps), the other set to 3 fixed hours.
