The Sirchie 214CA220 offers the advantages of an environmentally sealed chamber for the processing of fingerprints with ninhydrin, cyanoacrylate and iodine. Because the chamber is constructed of Fiberglass, it is not subject to the severe corrosive effects of iodine fumes. All parts internal to the chamber are of stainless steel. Upper and lower ports allow for the connection of an exhaust system. The unit's silicone-encapsulated heater is self-limited to surface temperatures of no more than 450deg. to prevent the possibility of the formation of cyanide gases during glue fuming.
A programmable digital temperature controller controls chamber temperature. Optimum ninhydrin processing temperature and iodine fuming settings are available via front panel switches. Processing can be monitored through a large Plexiglas front panel.
