Guardian Animal Transfer Station


The Guardian Animal Transfer Station is the perfect combination of performance and efficiency. As a Class II cage change station, it provides a protective barrier for the animals, the operator and the environment. Guardian uses laminar air flow to form an invisible wall between the work area and the room. It’s durable, constructed out of stainless steel so it’s also appealing to the eye.

This cage change station features HEPA filtered air and a self-regulating fan that provides consistent air volume. Indicators alter users if the filter need changing or airflow is not optimal. Access to filter panels is quick and easy for regular maintenance of your equipment.

The Guardian includes features you’ll enjoy such as quiet operation, energy efficient fluorescent lightning and an adjustable height work surface. It rests on 5″ stainless steel casters for easy mobility. The main view panel is made from a polycarbonate material for durability and visibility.

All components of the Alternative Design stainless steel product must be cleaned, sanitized and sterilized, where applicable, prior to being put into service. This unit is made primarily of 304 stainless steel. Use care when cleaning to prevent corrosion that can shorten useful life. Cleaning solutions which contain high levels of chlorine are not recommended for stainless steel parts.

Caster Maintenance

Caster used on this equipment was chosen for its suitability in applications where frequent washdowns are necessary. It is also well suited for applications exposed to heat, cleaning agents, steam, caustic solutions or other corrosive agents, which could cause rust and contamination. After washing and/or autoclaving, check casters for proper operation. Check the axle nut to ensure it is still tight (125 inch/pound is recommended). If the axle and/or swivel bearing has to be lubricated, use a high temp grease.
