Nuclear Bag In/Bag Out (BIBO) Housing

Nuclear Side Access Filter Housing

The AAF Bag In/Bag Out (BIBO) side access filter housing is a dedicated filtration system for the nuclear industry. It is widely used across nuclear power plants due to its simplicity, reliability, and its safety. Maintenance personnel are always protected from direct contact with the filters or the interior of the housing. This eliminates the risk of any potential hazardous contaminants being released during the filter change-out.

Each removal bag is cinched to a collar inside the housing door to prevent any leakage of contaminants during filter replacement. Similarly, new filters are installed with the aid of a protective plastic bag. At no time during the change-out is the external atmosphere exposed to contamination from within the filter housing. This style of housing can be supplied with any number of connected sections to contain a range of filter stages, including pre-filters, HEPA filters, and charcoal adsorbers.
