The Lugaia SafeFlex Isolator

Flexible containment solution

Our flexible isolators can be easily customized to meet customer requirements. We can design systems adapted to local conditions in regard to dimensions, connectivity and ergonomic requirements.

The advantages of the SafeFlex Isolator:

  • High product and personal protection
  • Easy handling
  • Universal usability
  • Foil with high tear resistance
  • High quality
  • Lower investment costs compared to rigid systems
  • Elimination of cleaning and validation costs
  • Integrable in existing systems
  • Gamma or x-ray sterilization possible
  • Containment can be done quickly and can be adjusted flexibly afterwards

The basis for the isolator system is provided by the stainless-steel base frame. The flexible isolator is made using easy-to-use tabs and snap fastener. The magnetic base plate on the bottom of the isolator provides a fixed and leveled platform.

Different configuration options:

  • stepless height adjustment
  • Storage options for equipment
  • Platforms
  • Different grounding points
  • Casters and stands in various designs

The optionally available Lugaia ventilation technology will carry out a pressure test. After finishing a production batch and necessary change of the isolator, the negative pressure will be interrupted and the enclosed air will be evacuated.

The flexible isolators can be customized to customer requirements and needs and adapted to local conditions and they can be equipped with different customer-specific dockings (e.g. with special gloves and CLS Continuous Liner for the inward and outward transfer of equipment and product.) There are also docking options for containers such as drums, connections for transfer systems (SafePort TransferBags or RTP Ports) and interfaces for media feed. Direct machine and system connection options can also be implemented on request.

Possible uses for SafeFlex Isolators:

  • Sampling
  • Weighing
  • Lyophilization
  • Filter change
  • Dismantling
  • Emptying
  • Reactor feeding / filling

Possible uses for local containment:

(direct docking to the process equipment without its own frame)

  • Filter change
  • Sampling
  • Enclosure of cleaning equipment (CIP und WIP)
  • Maintenance purposes/dismantling

FAQ - Frequently Asked Questions

In case you missed something

Are there different types of gloves?

Yes. Custom designs are possible.

Can equipment be locked either inside or outside of the Isolator?

Yes, in combination with the Lugaia Continuous Liners, locks can be closed in both directions.

Can the interior of the Isolator be operated inertly?

Yes, Lugaia ventilation technology offers an inerting mode.

Can the Isolator be operated in negative pressure?

Yes, in combination with the Lugaia ventilation technology, the Isolator can be operated in negative pressure or optionally in positive pressure.

For which containment level can the SafeFlex Isolators be used?

Most often with containment level OEB5. Higher containment levels are possible with double-barrier systems.

How will I be alerted if the limit values for the pressure and / or the oxygen content inside the isolator are exceeded?

There is an acoustic and visual alarm. Then there is an automatic self-regulation of the ventilation unit.

Is there also a simple ventilation device only for negative pressure operation?

Yes, we also offer a model for negative pressure operation only (without pressure test, without automatic inerting process, and without system monitoring via O2 measurement).

What are the dimensions of a standard Isolator?

Because each Isolator is customized to meet individual needs and requirements, there are no standard sizes. If you are interested, we look forward to discussing your dimensions and details in order to design your best containment solution.

What film material is the SafeFlex Isolator made of?

Due to the impressive mechanical properties (tear resistance) of the film, we use an antistatic polyurethane (PU) for the SafeFlex Isolators.
