Walker Barrier Systems Company Profile
From custom designed turnkey systems and spare parts/components to full service and maintenance contracts, Walker Barrier Systems has the experience, knowledge, and capabilities to assist in all your Isolation and Containment project needs.
Founded in 1943, Walker Stainless Equipment has over 60 years experience in stainless steel design and fabrication. Walker Barrier Systems, a division of Walker Stainless Equipment, develops world leading Containment and Isolation systems for the pharmaceutical, fine chemical and nuclear industries with its main facility in New Lisbon, WI. Walker Barrier Systems design/build positive pressure isolators for aseptic product testing, processing and filling. This includes integration with filling machines, freeze dryers, autoclaves and decontamination systems. Our negative pressure, potent compound isolator experiences range from weighing/dispensing applications to synthesis processes with a tray dryer/pressure filter.
The use of isolators eliminates the need for clean rooms with changing areas. The high costs of operating clean rooms (utilities, gowns, changing time, etc.) are eliminated. Isolators can be decontaminated using various vapor and gas processes to achieve a minimum 3-log reduction of biological indicators. Class 100 conditions within the isolator offer an optimum environment for aseptic testing or processing.
The use of isolators for potent product handling offers the maximum operator protection and safety. Isolators will eliminate need for PPE and reduce the number of medical exams for operators.
In 2008, Walker Barrier Systems began manufacturing Extract Technology Downflow Booths for North America. Our sister company Extract Technology has over 25 years of experience in design and fabrication of innovative high quality dust containment systems. Our Extract brand downflow booths provide containment solutions for large drum handling applications, such as sampling and weighing/dispensing achieving as low as 10mcg/cu.m. containment levels.
Going forward in 2009, Walker Barrier Systems will be designing, producing, installing, maintaining, and offering aftermarket parts for Extract products in North America.
Walker Barrier Systems has the most experienced staff of technical sales representatives, engineers and technicians in the isolator industry. We have more than 50 years of stainless steel fabricating experience-producing products of unequaled quality.
