FR‑Series Evidence Drying Cabinets

Mystaire® FR‑Series drying cabinets are constructed with a durable and rigid powder-coated aluminum frame, while the interior drying chamber is molded from fiberglass. Added security comes from the powder coated aluminum doors with keyed entry, not found on other drying cabinets. This reinforced aluminum door is designed to provide a tamper resistant barrier while creating a positive seal between the chamber and the environment, minimizing the potential for cross contamination. The lower portion of the aluminum door houses a high efficiency pre-filter to block airborne contaminants from entering into the drying chamber. Once the aluminum door is locked, access into the chamber is eliminated without authorization. A clear viewing panel allows law enforcement professionals tasked with handling ″wet″ evidence, to view the progress of the drying cycle.

In addition to the door pre-filter, within the drying chamber is a second pre-filter. This pre-filter is referred to as a trace evidence filter and is designed to trap any potential evidence that might become airborne during the drying process. All drying air must pass through the trace evidence pre-filter before leaving the drying chamber. This filter should be changed between each case and retained for further analysis by laboratory professionals.

Ductless and Total Exhaust Models

Depending on a facility's capacity for air handling, FR‑Series cabinets are available in filtered and exhaust models. Filtered models are fitted with HEPA filtration and activated carbon filtration to capture potentially harmful fumes, vapors and particulate released during the drying process. Alternately, an exhaust collar to hook directly into the local HVAC system can be provided.

Each FR‑Series cabinet is complete with a stainless steel hanging rod and shelves to allow for easy positioning of evidence for the purpose of drying. Decontamination between cases is simple with the floor mounted drain. By incorporating a hard surface cleaner, like Solucide®, the FR‑Series can be cleaned and disinfected in minutes. To pump waste water into an adjacent floor drain or sink, an optional modular waste pump can be added.

Room air is pulled into the drying cabinet through electrostatically charged pre-filtration at ″A″. This pre-filtration is designed to remove gross particulate and fibers (potential cross-contamination).

Once room air is inside the cabinet, it circulates around the wet evidence at ″B″ before entering a three-stage filtration process.

The exhaust air passes through an electrostatically charged pre-filter at ″C″. This pre-filter captures any trace evidence present in the airstream and should be removed between cases for laboratory examination.

Air then passes into the HEPA filter at ″D″. The HEPA filter captures potentially harmful biological material.

Air passes through the gas phase carbon filter at ″E″ before exiting the chamber. The gas phase carbon filter prevents putrid odors from escaping into the laboratory space.
