Destaco booth will feature unique isolator unit equipped with several containment solutions
Auburn Hills, Mich. (May 12, 2015) – Destaco will provide demos of several of its latest Central Research Laboratories (CRL) remote handling solutions using a single unique isolator unit at the upcoming SNMMI Annual Meeting. The SNMMI Annual Meeting takes place June 6-10 at the Baltimore Convention Center in Baltimore, Md., and attendees can find Destaco in booth #1110 on the trade show floor.
The Destaco demo unit’s isolation chamber will be fitted with a CRL G-LDR telemanipulator, CleanRTP rapid transfer port and Push-Through Gloveport. A variety of CleanRTP beta containers constructed of stainless steel, polypropylene and medical grade plastics will also be on display in the booth to highlight the options available for nuclear material transfer.
“We’ve made it easy for SNMMI attendees to try out many of our most popular solutions at one station on the trade show floor,” says Steve Chunglo, global business development manager, life sciences and nuclear for Destaco. “And if they can’t find exactly what they need, our experienced product engineering team will work with them to build a custom containment solution.”
Introduced last year, the G-LDR telemanipulator provides all the benefits of Destaco’s proven line of CRL G-LD telemanipulators in a smaller package. It features 10 lbs. of capacity, telescoping operation and an ambidextrous handle, and can be retrofitted to any existing mount with a 4.76-inch (121 mm) diameter opening. The GLDR telemanipulator’s arm does not require any internal space above the mount opening, enabling users to reduce the internal height of the hot cell. This can help facilities reduce costs or create useable space for other equipment.
Destaco’s CRL CleanRTP rapid transfer port is easier to operate and cleaner than other rapid transfer ports. It features a best-in-class range of options for maximum versatility. The CleanRTP interlock system, with its smooth polished release handle, mitigates the possibility of a glove breach due to a pinch in the interlocks, which improves operator and batch operational safety.
The CRL Push-Through Gloveport system from Destaco allows for rapid glove changes and minimized risk of operator or material exposure. It is an ideal companion for Destaco’s CRL Waste Drum Transfer System, which eliminates unnecessary contamination risks associated with traditional single-use plastic bag disposal. The Waste Drum Transfer System’s fully automated internal port door opens to a waste drum that can be resealed and re-opened until it is full.
SNMMI Annual Meeting attendees can also learn about Destaco’s increased European service and support efforts for all CRL products. This year, Destaco will dedicate highly trained CRL technical and sales support engineers for European customers to help meet increasing demand for CRL products. Destaco Europe and its distribution network will provide the full CRL product line directly to OEM partners and end-users.
