Isolators and Microclimate

When protecting sensitive products, components, ingredients or people from air borne particles, microorganisms or aerosols, it is often critical to minimize the space in which you confine the related activities. Sensitive production lines requiring tightly controlled environments can cost fortunes to control, with high investment costs and even higher operational cost. Not to mention the environmental footprint that may follow.

In these, and indeed in many other situations, it might be beneficial to go for an isolator design or a microclimate solution when expanding or developing your future production lines/sites. Sometimes it is an easy transition, sometimes it is not. In any case, AirSon is the partner to support you with tons of experience and, if needed, a couple of air technological laboratories at our disposal to test and improve solutions.

Isolator glove box


A typical isolator is an airtight chamber with negative or positive pressure to protect either the product or the personnel working with the product. It is typically used within the pharma industry to protect the workers from hazardous ingredients. However, the isolator design strategy may also be used for many other processes and applications with excellent efficacy.

When the requirements are somewhat less demanding, an LAF solution with defined openings may be a leaner solution. Here, the static pressure and the tightness of the chamber is less concerning. Instead, the focus is to have defined out or inward pointed air velocity. Either to protect the product from the personnel working with the product, or vice versa.

Controlled microclimate

The controlled microclimate can range from anything between the tiniest of controlled bubbles to table-sized incubators. Here, the definition is up for grabs, it really is your (and our) imagination that sets the limits…

There are endless alternatives to redefine and/or to minimise the controlled climate. Let us help you tailor a solution to meet your current requirements or your wildest ideas of future production. When the idea has left the conceptual phase, we can either offer you a turnkey solution or assist you in sourcing it from other parties.

Cleanroom solutions

Reducing unwanted airborne matter is often necessary to exploit exciting new markets. A cleverly designed cleanroom solution provides real competitive advantages, such as higher quality, lower waste and higher profit margins. It also enables the realization of entirely new products and production lines.

Dryroom solutions

In a dryroom, the controlled variable is humidity. Dry environments are crucial in industries such as lithium-Ion battery manufacturing, where the rooms often need to be maintained at a dewpoint
of -40°C or below.

Airson TLA

TLA, Temperature controlled Laminar Airflow, is one of AirSon’s platform technologies. It uses a specific way of introducing the treated air, taking advantage of gravity and creating clean controlled zones where they are needed.

Airson Airshower

The Airshower is a unique series of patented supply air terminals. They are designed for vertical displacement, supplying a thermally controlled air flow.

The Air Lab

We carry out investigations and tests to help you develop tailormade applications for solutions to fit your process and company’s needs.
