ACS Air Compressing Station

ACS - Air Compressing Station

The system collects potentially radioactive air from inside hot cells during radiopharmaceutical production or after a malfunction of the synthesis modules.


  • Up to 16 cells connected to the same system and up to 5 boxes in production simultaneously.
  • Three-valve system mounted on each cell (2 pneumatic valves and 1 electric valve)
  • Pressure gauges are used to measure the positive and negative pressure in the extraction circuit.
  • 200-litre air accumulation tank and 200-litre storage tank
  • 50-litre vacuum tank with storage function
  • The membrane compressor is used to compress the air flow and create negative pressure in intake mode

The extracted air is then sent to a compression system and stored inside pressurised tanks. A Geiger probe, placed inside a Marinelli system (optional), monitors these tanks. Once the stored radioactive activity has decayed, the air, no longer contaminated, is discharged in the extraction conduit of the laboratory general ventilation.

The compression station can manage one or more COMECER production or handling cells.

Moreover, the compression station can be connected to the cyclotrone vacuum pump. In the event of an accident or failure of the target, the contaminated air is stored in the relative tanks.
