Large General Purpose Enclosure [GP1200-1600]


GP1200-1600 Large General Purpose Enclosure (previously Mediaway)

Large General Purpose Enclosure.

Originally designed for media powder mixing and weighing, the GP Large General Purpose Enclosure solves the problem of personnel exposed to particles in or near the mixing room and simply, but effectively, removes the need for operators to wear face masks.

Now part of our ‘GP’ general purpose range, it has found numerous uses in laboratories and production environments around the world. Side entry doors and a removable front panel afford easy access for media or equipment loading and cleaning.

Operator access is through the front panel opening which we can modify to suit your application at no extra cost using the latest laser cutting technology.

One of our  new, quieter, variable speed, EC Waysafe® ‘600’ series HEPA filter/fan units provide background airflow that ensures operator protection without affecting sensitive instruments or operations.

Please note, if you purchase without selecting either of the options below, you will be buying the GP1400 at 1400mm wide.

Various options are available including a range of filters for both particulates and odours, 240VAC or 120VAC operation, and base panels in a range of colours.
