Building Safety Into Isolator Controls Systems


As isolators become more customized to meet the requirements of specific Pharmaceutical processes, the controls systems have been challenged to provide more safety and flexibility.

A process may require the isolator to have inflatable gaskets and provide oxygen monitoring. To meet the challenges, Walker Barrier Systems has designed a controls system that provides:

Automated start up sequence

  • It is important to have an automated start up sequence to be certain that the isolator is sealed and in leak tight. This will assure the operators safety.
  • Door seal test and pressure decay test is automatically performed before the isolator goes into “run” mode.
