Telstar develops a new standard series of modular weighing booths

The company optimizes downflow booths and reduces delivery times from 13 to 3 weeks. Telstar has developed a new standardized range of downflow booths for weighting and sampling used for materials dispensing and dosage process. Designed to meet the most commonly demanding requirements needed for this range of equipment, the company has developed a new standardized version of nine different size models, shaped by conventional and standard requisites based on a compact modular structure. The new standardized modular and compact range of cabinets allows expediting the design and installation process of cabinets, significantly reducing delivery times, making easier both the full integration of the equipment to the facility architecture or a standalone installation as required when installing within existing locations.

Delivery time reduction Specially designed for the pharmaceutical, cosmetic and fine chemical industries, the new standardized range of downflow booths for weighing and sampling offers an efficient and versatile solution, integrating the main characteristics and requirements that, consolidated by Telstar’s brand, are expected for this type of equipment. Based on pre designed models that do not require dedicated engineering or project management resources, this range of standardized modular booths enables a significant delivery time reduction, from 13 weeks up to 3 weeks, depending on the model chosen and current availability. Subjected to a worldwide proven 3D design process and automated manufacturing method, it also minimizes the generation of errors and virtually eliminates 100% of incidents.  The wide range of models and accessories offered in the standardized version enables greater flexibility and adaptability according to where the equipment - which is also characterized by a low noise level, between 65 and 70 Dba- needs to be operated.  Although Telstar continues to head the development of custom-made Telstar downflow booths, the optimized design applied to a standardized version adapted to the most common requirements for a weighting and sampling operations of raw materials and excipients enables to set a fully and exact definition of the equipment at the purchase order phase.   The modular booths offer versatility for processes where powders are being handled or dust is likely, such as sampling, fractioning and weighing, manufacture of tablets and capsules and packaging of antibiotics, hormones and cytostatics. The booths have been designed to provide protection for the user at operator exposure levels (OEL) of between 50 and 100 µg/m3 in the working area and create a sterile unidirectional flow area (Class ISO 5 – ISO 14644-1) to protect the product against potential local contaminants and possible cross-contamination with other products or processes. Lower levels of containment (10μg/m3) can be achieved by utilizing purpose designed workstations and containment screens.
