The MTC (Material Transfer Chamber
) can be installed to the left or the right of the chamber or on both sides, and can also be retrofitted later.
Rapid transfer chambers
or material transfer airlocks are used differently depending on whether they are used in RABS or isolator systems: The most common solution for a transfer chamber
connected to an isolator is the H2O2 surface decontamination, closely followed by NO2.
Cirrus Containments has a modular radiopharmacy isolator which has a specific transfer module for housing two technetium Tc99m generators with additional shielding and a two-glove port elution module, which can then be fitted to a choice of glove port working zone and a further type D transfer chamber
for the removal of product from the critical zone.
The Controlled Atmosphere Glove Boxes feature an LCD display with microprocessor controls for automatically evacuating and refilling the glove box main chamber or transfer chamber
up to 199 times with clean inert nitrogen or argon gas.
The transfer chamber
used during the comparison was an Exradin (1) chamber model A5, SN XY051605.
This reduces weight to 35 kg and results in a design compact enough to mount directly on the loadlock or transfer chamber
in a variety of positions.
After the holding-pressure phase, the transfer chamber
is filled with material for the next cycle.
Applied Materials will integrate these cast components into its next generation 200- and 300-mm wafer ion implantation transfer chamber
systems used in the fabrication of high-speed, reduced power consumption semiconductor devices.

Counterbalanced, space-saving inner and outer transfer chamber
doors pivot upward and are equipped with quick-latches and pressure relief valve.
The transfer chamber
currents were not corrected for humidity.
