Custom Design

Flow Sciences’ team of containment experts bring decades of custom design expertise, with consistent compliments of creativity and adaptability, to global technological developments and processes.

Our sales, engineering, and project management staff begin by creating a unified understanding of every customer’s process and goals through the completion of the Custom Quote Request Form.

Many of these custom projects are equipment specific, and focus on the localized containment of the procedure while providing personnel and/or product protection. If you are working with a specific piece of equipment, please let us know. Our design history has led to many custom solutions created for equipment that is highly likely to be similar or exact to your specific equipment.

With surrogate powder testing both in our facility as factory acceptance testing (FAT) and at the customer facility as site acceptance testing (SAT), we consistently exceed our customers’ containment targets and goal expectations. We have significant documentation of the superior performance of our products. For more information, please contact us.

CONSULTATION

Flow Sciences’ team of containment experts are challenged with providing solutions for complex applications.  These projects are mostly equipment specific, and focus on the localized containment of the procedure while providing personnel and/or product protection. Pairing with a Flow Sciences Containment Consultant allows users direct help with developing SOPs and GLP training.

DESIGN

Flow Sciences has championed the industry in airflow for over 30 years.  Holding numerous patents in airflow safety and design, Flow Sciences continues to use advanced engineering controls and airflow concepts to maintain the best personnel and/or product protection in the industry. 

MANUFACTURING

Performance is paramount in the safety industry, and through consistent quality design and expert manufacturing, Flow Sciences’ units perform.  

TESTING

Performance is paramount in the safety industry. Through consistent design quality and expert manufacturing, Flow Sciences’ units perform.  With surrogate powder testing both in our facility as factory acceptance testing (FAT) and at the customer facility as site acceptance testing (SAT), we consistently exceed our customers’ containment targets and goal expectations.

Enclosure Design: The Advantages of CFD

Computational Fluid Dynamics (CFD) is the study of fluid dynamics using sophisticated computing technology. Computational Fluid Dynamics uses or solves the governing equations of fluid or gas flows to predict the characteristics and the structure of a flow field. The most important feature or advantage of using CFD in the design process is the ability to see airflow. CFD allows the use to see the results of engineering design more effectively than in the real world. The effects of minute features in the designing process can be seen and compared using CFD which cannot be done in an otherwise efficient manner. Another added advantage of using CFD is the repeatability of the results.

Flow Sciences uses CFD in the design process in order to concentrate and study the effects of changes in airflow (large and small) in the enclosure design. Any changes to an enclosure’s design affect the airflow structure inside the enclosure and FSI’s goal is to maintain stable airflow that improves containment while also providing a low turbulent atmosphere that allows sensitive equipment to perform properly and minimize any potential product loss. With CFD we have the advantage of evaluating the performance of the enclosure even before it is built, and then verify those results in our testing lab. This results in our clients receiving enclosures that have proven performance.

  • Is this similar to a TaskMatch enclosure or Standard enclosure? Enter the Enclosure ID or TaskMatch link here.
  • What is being done inside of the enclosure? What type of material (powder, liquid, gas, nuisance odor) is being worked with? How does the material enter and exit the enclosure system? etc...
  • What type of filtration is required? Single HEPA, Dual HEPA, Carbon, House Exhaust, etc... What is the required OEL (Occupational Exposure Limit) for the process, or any other details about containment goals? What is the quantity of powder or liquid, task duration, composition of powder, etc...?
  • What equipment is being worked with? What is the equipment model, size, scope, function, and any other information that will affect the design of the enclosure, including movement, heat output, etc...? *State the specific equipment make and model if available*
  • Are there any details on the facility that could affect the design of the enclosure including ceiling height, install door width, installation path, docks, available CFM, etc...? Any special shipping instructions such as required disassembly, flat packing, etc...?
  • When are you looking to have this unit installed and ready for use? Are there any other details about the project that should be considered? Is this part of a construction or renovation project?
  • Do you need a table or cabinet and if so, do you require any special features such as shelf, extension, equipment support, etc.? Would you prefer 304 or 316 SS or a powder coated mild steel? What working height would you like? Do you need it to be stationary or movable? Lift (adjustable height) or fixed height?
