Esco Evidence Drying Cabinet
Esco Evidence Drying Cabinet is a negative pressure cabinet designed to provide security, tamper proof, and prevent loss of integrity and credibility and possible cross contamination of evidence and impede any harmful airborne pathogens, putridodours and other gases from escape that may harm or infect employees / technicians.ConstructionThe main body of the cabinet is constructed of industrial-grade electrogalvanized steel with mobile lockable casters.Esco Isocide™ antimicrobial coated cabinet structure prevents surface contamination and inhibits bacterial growth on the cabinet’s external surface.Stainless steel interior for easy cleaning.Built-in warm white, electronically ballasted, 5000k lighting provides excellent illumination of the work zone and reduces operator fatigue. The reliable lighting system is zero-flicker and instant start.Stainless steel collapsible wire mesh shelves.Laminated Tempered Glass Door to prevent UV light exposure.Stainless steel catch tank underneath the drying cabinet with hose provision.Filtration SystemThe enhanced filtration system on Esco Evidence Drying Cabinet is designed to provide the highest level of protection of personnel/technicians from harmful exposure to biohazards, putrid odours, and gases emanating from evidence materials.Disposable and non-washable polyester fibers with 85% arrestance below the door entry and before the HEPA Filter.High quality HEPA filters utilizing an improved mini-pleated separation technique to maximize surface area improves efficiency and extends the filter life. Filters operate at a typical efficiency of >99.999% at 0.1 to 0.3 micron sizes.Carbon filtration to remove putrid odours and gases. Control SystemEsco Evidence Drying Cabinet is controlled by Sentinel Control System with the following features;Timer for evidence drying cycle.Programmable UV switch and timer which turns off automatically after a fixed period.UV lifespan countdown timer.Velocity and exhaust temperature display.Blower Hour meter indicates how long the blower has been in operation.Visual and audible alarms.Two speed automatic blower setting pre-set to half speed and 100% blower speed.Blower SystemEnergy efficient external rotor motor design reduces operating costs and has extremely low noise and vibration levels.The intelligent blower system maintains airflow as the filter becomes loaded, ensuring optimum efficiency and product protection.Built-in solid state variable speed controllers, with integral RFI and noise filters, are superior to conventional “step” controllers and offer infinite adjustment from zero to maximum setting.AirflowDuring operation, room air is drawn through the door of the cabinet via a non-washable polyurethane pre-filter with 85% arrestance, trapping particulates and prevent cross contamination of the evidence materials.The air is then forced inwards resulting in a unidirectional stream of air projected vertically upwards over the internal work zone by the blower system found on top of the cabinet. All airborne contaminants and putrid odours from materials inside the cabinet are pushed up towards a three stage filtration consisting of Pre-filter, HEPA, and carbon filters.
