The Safekeeper forensic evidence drying cabinet is a containment cabinet for the drying and storage of forensic evidence. The airflow through the cabinet gives a constant drying medium for items of evidence large or small, and contains any fumes, odors, or particulates given off while drying, thus ensuring a safe working environment for personnel. Thermally fused all polypropylene single piece design can be easily cleaned after use and eliminates the possibility of contamination as when liners and two piece construction is used. Available as single, duplex or quad design which have separate drying compartments.
Air coming into the cabinet is first passed through an in-let pre-filter to ensure it is clean. Vapors, odors and particulates given off while drying are filtered by both special carbon and HEPA filters. These main filters are protected by a filtrate pre-filter. An optional safety exhaust filter can also be added to comply with US Lab Ventilation Standard Z9.5. High quality fans maintain a constant airflow, even when the pre-filters are partly blocked. If the air velocity reduces to the extent that performance is adversely affected, a low airflow alarm is activated.
Corrosion proof design increases operational life, with the use of reinforced plastics and epoxy coated steel surfaces that are resistant to corrosion from various liquids and fumes. The cabinet can be easily cleaned down after use by rinsing with a spray hose incorporated in the cabinet and washing with detergent and water. The space inside the cabinet can be used to provide full length hanging space and removable shelves for storage of smaller items.
