AirClean Systems AC600 Series chemical workstations provide protection of the operator and lab environment from toxic vapors, gases, fumes and particulates when performing low-volume applications with known chemicals. Smaller and more flexible than AirClean’s ductless fume hoods, the workstations include the same advanced safety features and technology.
The newly redesigned Protector Stainless Steel Radioisotope hoods from Labconco feature fully sealed integral worksurfaces with coved interiors to facilitate decontamination. New to the design are two Cord-Keeper slots located on the left and right side of the air foil to allow the sash to close when electrical cords from equipment inside the hood are plugged into receptacles located on the corner posts.
The Purair Flex Film Isolator features a curved film design that provides more working volume in the glove bag. The double O-ring design on the standard polyurethane cuffs allow users to quickly and easily change gloves to meet a variety of dexterity needs.
The Mystaire FE-2620 ductless economy chemical workstation provides operator protection while performing routine lab manipulations with liquid chemicals or powders. The ductless economy chemical workstation can easily be positioned over a lab sink, or placed directly on a counter or benchtop.
Strobic Air offers a monostack fume exhaust fan with wheel sizes from 18 to 36 in. Airflow capacities go to 24,000 cfm with no belts or couplings. The direct drive, low premium efficient VFD duty motors have spark-resistant construction. The efficient nozzle design has high velocity plume dispersion.
Air Science’s Purair SKY ceiling-mounted filtration units are designed to protect lab personnel and the environment in areas where hazardous substances are handled. Central to the design of the Purair SKY Series is the Multiplex filtration system and EFT enhanced filtration technology, ensuring universal protection in the work environment over a wide range of applications.
The complete range of Aura ESD ductless chemical fume hoods from Mystaire are designed for electrostatic-sensitive applications. Aura’s user protection against toxic fume exposure has been combined with electrostatic dissipative features.
Hamilton Scientific recently completed the installation of steel casework and fume hoods in the 351,000-sf CFL in Washington, DC. This $4.3 million lab serves the Dept. of Forensic Services, the Office of the Chief Medical Examiner and the Dept. of Public Health.
Greenheck's Vektor-HS is a single-source lab exhaust system designed to reduce fan energy in demand-based applications. The Vektor-HS features Sure-Aire variable-volume exhaust (SAVVE) technology, which monitors changes in airflow and static pressure in the occupied space, causing the fan's operation to adjust throughout the day based on demand.
The AC600 Series workstations include the same advanced safety components found in AirClean Systems’ larger ductless polypropylene fume hoods. Fumes are captured by advanced bonded gas phase carbon filtration while airflow, filter life and fume containment are all monitored by the microprocessor-based AirSafe automatic safety controller.
The PURAIR 5 ductless fume hoods from Air Science USA feature a high level of operator protection where routine work is being carried out. The units exceed OSHA, ANSI and all relevant international standards. The ductless design eliminates installation costs and allows the unit to be positioned over a sink or benchtop apparatus.
AirClean Systems microprocessor-controlled PCR workstations reduce risk of sample contamination. The AC600 Series PCR workstations are designed as application solutions for the manipulation and amplification of DNA and RNA.
Air Science has introduced its line of biological safety cabinets. The Purair BIO is designed to protect individuals, the environment and products from a variety of biological particulates, serving as the primary barrier in life science research and experimentation.
Safeguard HVAC environments from condensate overflow buildup. Standex-Meder Electronics offers a new line of flood prevention switches (FPS), which safeguard HVAC environments from condensate overflow buildup. These low-voltage switches are suited for commercial and residential HVAC applications. With tee, elbow and bracket models available with multiple fittings to accommodate any application, each FPS model is simple to install, easy to service and reliable.
UniFlow Aire-Stream fume hoods from Hemco are constructed entirely of chemical-resistant, flame-retardant, non-metallic composite resin materials and feature an exclusive “unitized” construction that does not require screws, bolts, rivets or metallic hardware to assemble.
The new Captair Flow fume hoods from Erlab are designed to protect samples handled in the enclosure using very low energy consumption. Air entering the enclosure is free of any external contamination and provides an ultraclean work atmosphere which protects contamination-sensitive samples.
The Protector XStream laboratory hood from Labconco is a high-performance fume hood which operates well at low air volumes. The Protector XStream uses patented features that work together to significantly reduce the concentrations of contaminants in areas behind the sash opening and near the user's breathing zone.
The AirMax fume hood with wet fume scrubber system from AirClean Systems is a complete solution for protecting personnel from dangerous chemical exposure while also protecting ductwork and the environment by scrubbing acids and other water soluble gases from fume hood exhaust.
The project needed to: safely expel exhaust fumes from laboratories high above the surrounding dormitories; and provide an energy-efficient laboratory exhaust system to reduce energy costs enough to pay back the entire system cost in two to three years.
Available from Asynt Ltd., the Lab-Bubble is a versatile piece of containment equipment that can be used to provide many different types of safety or controlled environments simply by using additional components to change the function of the enclosure.
Air Science's PURAIR 5 ductless fume hoods feature a high level of operator protection where routine work is being carried out. The units exceed OSHA, ANSI, and all relevant international standards. The ductless design eliminates installation costs and allows the unit to be positioned over a sink or benchtop.
NuAire's FumeGard NU-162 and NU-164 By-Pass Fume Hoods combination vertical/horizontal sash offer the user an option of opening the sash by sliding the window up and down or side to side. These fume hoods are suited for operations where only personnel protection is required.
TROX DID632 active chilled beams provide comfortable air conditioning of rooms with a high demand for cooling. Chilled beams provide sensible cooling to the space by using a combination of primary air and chilled water (typically ≥56 F).
Greenheck's housed plenum array model HPA, is designed for fan array installations in air handler applications. Model HPA features a direct drive galvanized plenum fan mounted inside a sound attenuating housing.
E Instruments' Model 7899 Gas Sniffer is a portable, rugged, leak detection tool suited for any HVAC professional. The detector is equipped with a highly sensitive tip to pinpoint small leaks of any combustible gases and hydrocarbons from piping and/or appliances.
