Protector Evidence Drying Cabinets with Washdown

These durable, stainless steel-lined cabinets provide a secure ventilated area to dry evidence such as clothing and bedding. Available in 3', 4' and 5' floor-mounted models and 3' benchtop models. Washdown helps decontaminate cabinet.

The CApture BT Fuming Chamber with microprocessor control automates the Cyanoacrylate (CA) fuming of evidence. The programmable operating system combines the control and monitoring of all critical parameters in the Super Glue fuming process with the precision to store and easily repeat specified programs. Its spacious interior with shelving system maximizes fuming capacity and accommodates large evidence including holding up to 15 long guns at a time.

CApture Portable Fuming Systems quickly fix latent fingerprints at the crime scene using microburst or traditional CA fuming methods, while protecting the user from hazardous fumes. The patented design combines all the components needed in one compact system: a heater to heat the Super Glue; a shatter-resistant, clear protective fuming chamber to contain the fumes as they react with the latent prints; an exhaust blower; and particulate/carbon exhaust filter.

Protector Evidence Drying Cabinets provide a secure ventilated area to dry evidence such as clothing and bedding. The cabinets' HEPA and carbon filtered exhaust protects personnel from exposure to biohazards while eliminating odors. The lockable cabinet maintains the chain of custody. Models are available with a key-activated ultraviolet light that provides secondary disinfection of the interior between cases to prevent cross contamination, ensuring integrity of samples for DNA testing. Other models include a washdown system consisting of a spray nozzle and built-in water pump to aid clean up after the cabinet has been disinfected. Floor-mounted and benchtop models are available.

Protector Downdraft Powder Stations keep users safe from dust and powders during fingerprint processing. These open-sided, open-top work stations provide unrestricted operator movement. A HEPA filter traps airborne particles and powders in the air.
