Compact Airlock product improvements

The Russell Compact Airlock achieves OEL value of 1μg/m3

The new Compact Airlock Sieve™ adds a new dimension to screening technology for the pharmaceutical industry. The unique design has evolved as a result of close consultation with many of the top pharmaceutical companies around the world. The new vibro sifter is the first real advancement in pharmaceutical sieving technology for ten years, with its validatable pneumatic clamping system giving large improvements in product containment (OEL value of 1 μg/m3) and operator health and safety.

Russell Compact Airlock Sieve

The Russell Compact Airlock Sieve™ has a patented pneumatic lock, which gives an even and high clamping force across all sealing faces. The clamping force therefore guards against powder leakage more effectively than traditional band clamps or over-centre toggle clamps. Also, to assist with FDA process approval, this pneumatic clamping system can be validated to provide a unique and measurable seal. The Russell Compact Airlock Sieve™ offers large improvements in product containment while reducing dust and improves the health and safety of operators, especially in the pharmaceutical industry.
