How Safe is a Safe-T-Dome™ Cabinet?

How Safe is a Safe-T-Dome™ Cabinet?

Why TRUST your Safe-T-Dome?

Why TRUST your Safe-T-Dome?

You can rely on the safety of Safe-T-Dome™ cabinets if you can trust your own eyes and ears.  Unlike complex biosafety cabinets that depend on laminar flow air movement, variable speed fans and complex control systems for protection, the Safe-T-Dome™ uses a simple static pressure vacuum system anyone can check and verify.  If you can see the red bottom of the bellows raised off the base or hear the sound of air bubbling through the trap, into the cabinet, you know that the vacuum inside is working. 

People using Safe-T-Dome™ cabinets quickly come to trust the protection they offer, far more than other hoods and gloveboxes.  They are transparent, with all protective components in clear view to the user.  Safe-T-Dome™ glove box cabinets have safety features available only with our proprietary system.  The simple, fail-safe design combines practical, easy to use elements with visibility and control in the hands of the operator.  At Banthrax, we believe users deserve to see, hear and understand devices that ensure their safety, so we provide these capabilities in Safe-T-Dome™ cabinets.  It follows, that those handling hazardous materials are ultimately responsible for their own safety, so they should control it and verify it; when using our gloveboxes, they do. 

The Safe-T-Dome™ is the safest, most thoroghly tested technology you can use to isolate unhealthy materials, and avoid release while working with them.  With less than 6 moving parts, the Safe-T-Dome™ cabinet provides a slight vacuum pressure inside to ensure that leaks cannot allow contaminants to escape from the cabinet.   This is done with 4 basic elements the user can see and check:

1  Diaphragm Pump    HEAR THE HUM as the simple electric Diaphragm Pump pulls clean filtered air from the cabinet to maintain a protective vacuum inside.  The low hum you can hear and gentle vibration you can feel show you that the pump is powered and running.

Small HEPA Filter pic
SEE THE FILTER that traps the microbes and other hazardous particles, as air from the cabinet is pulled through it by the pump.  The HEPA filter and connecting tubing are clearly visible at all times, showing that all air removed is safe, since the HEPA filter will not pass microbes to the outside air.
 
Bellows Unit
SEE THE VACUUM pressure indication by observing the lifted red bottom of the Bellows-  The Bellows Unit contracts, lifted by the vacuum pressure in the cabinet.  It is easy to see the results of the vacuum, by observing the red bottom of the bellows as it is lifted above the base.  The only thing holding it up from the base is the vacuum pressure inside the cabinet.  The higher the bottom of the bellows, the greater the protective vacuum pressure must be to sustain it.
 
Liquid Air Trap or Bubble Gage
HEAR THE BUBBLES as clean outside air is pulled into the cabinet by the vacuum inside.  The Bubble Gage liquid air trap controls the vacuum pressure in the cabinet by allowing air to bubble into the chamber at a preset pressure.  The user can hear and see the bubbles, as the vacuum pulls outside air through the water and into the chamber.  The user sets the pressure level by lowering or lifting the "dip tube" end under the water.  Whether the tube is set for a low protective vacuum or a higher pressure drop, only vacuum in the glovebox can pull air through the water, so seeing and hearing bubbles proves that protective vacuum is present.
