The new SPH from Sartorius® provides a safe environment in which to measure, weigh, and formulate powders while eliminating the risks of operator exposure to possible harmful compounds. The SPH is small enough to fit on your benchtop, but roomy enough to accommodate up to two lab instruments.
No duct work required. The pre-filter, primary and backup HEPA filters and blower are housed inside the unit. The blower is a brushless, sparkless motor rated for use 24 hours, 7 days a week. Together they ensure that warm, filtered air is returned to the room saving energy costs.
Constructed of polypropylene. The workstation is constructed of tough, chemically-resistant polypropylene. The three sides, top and base are thermally fused to provide a seamless shell - no glue to breakdown and no metal to rust.
Air Flow Manager. For maximum containment, stable and uniform air flow is maintained by the air flow manager. The enclosure's face velocity is constantly monitored and displayed. Any change, often due to laboratory conditions or filter capacity, automatically initiates an adjustment to the blower speed keeping the air flow constant.
Alarms. A low airflow alarm visually and audibly alerts the user to insufficient airflow. The filter alarm monitors the filter life and alerts the user when the HEPA filter is saturated and needs to be changed.
Full protection during filter change. When changing the primary HEPA filter, the backup HEPA filter provides complete containment. Simply remove the pre-filter and primary HEPA filter from inside the enclosure. Bag them and seal the bag safely inside the workstation.
Ergonomically designed. The Sartorius Mechatronics SPH features an ergonomic, energy efficient design with angled face for worker comfort. The clear polycarbonate face can be opened completely to install equipment. The front sash can be raised to a height of 9", while maintaining full containment, allowing for greater accessibility to the workstation.
Fully assembled. When you receive the SPH, all you need to do is plug it in and turn it on. All three filters are installed at the factory prior to shipment - where the unit undergoes an extensive quality testing to ensure maximum performance and protection.
Extra features. The fluorescent light can be turned on for task lighting. Utility ports allow power and communication cords to be connected outside workstation. Lab timer assists with time management.
Disposal Port. This option allows disposal of weighing containers, gloves and other items with traces of powder within the workstation. Simply thread a waste bag through the 4.5" diameter hole and secure inside the workstation. Place contaminated materials inside bag. When full, seal the bag from inside and remove.
Cart provides mobility or extra countertop space. Constructed of 14-gauge epoxy coated steel, these carts are a perfect fit for the SPH. Standard height is under 34" to meet ADA requirements. Choose locking casters to make your workstation portable or stationary feet to expand workspace in the laboratory.
