Excel Plus Safechange

Providing the greatest protection possible for the safety conscious laboratory


Excel Plus Workstations are used in the laboratory for the most demanding power handling applications, such as high accuracy weighing, processing of pellets, capsules and tablets and for dispensing of potentionally toxic powdered compounds.

The safechange cabinet in the Excel Plus range has been designed to provide the safest possible operation for both the user and maintenance staff.

Development and performance testing has been undertaken with the support of a leading pharmaceutical R&D company.

Excellent operator protection is achieved by enhanced airflow control and aerofoil technology which ensures that containment is achieved and maintained at the very low air flows required for balance stability.

Safety Features

  • ‘True Safechange Technology’ eliminates the possibility of contamination either in the laboratory or upstream in ductwork and fan assembly.
  • Double layer filtration provides extra filter system integrity.
  • Visible and audible alarms alert user of unsafe flow conditions.
  • Fan speed compensation for variation in flow during the lifetime of the filter maintains cabinet performance.
