Typical microbial work release millions or billions of microbes that are pulled from the work zone and go to the blower plenum. Over years, these microbes will pile up like trash landfill, posing a contamination hazard. 

Esco offers the only BSC that has anti-microbial powder coating on the blower plenum, air return columns, and exterior, to reduce the bioburden accumulation.
