AirClean Systems introduces E-Series fume hoods


Three models are available to suit varied applications

AirClean Systems has added the E-Series of freestanding polypropylene ductless fume hoods to its established line of operator protection products.

The Raleigh, North Carolina-based firm’s ductless fume hood line-up has been further expanded to include free-standing fume hoods capable of enclosing equipment up to 52in high.

To fit a variety of applications, three models are available: AC3000E (36in), AC4000E (48in) and AC6000E (72in). These off-the-shelf containment solutions remove the need for costly customisation when enclosing mixers, mills, grinders, reactors, or other tall equipment.

Typically floor mounted, the E-Series enclosures feature an upper folding sash combined with lower access doors, providing easy ergonomic access during manipulation. This full access design allows equipment to be easily inserted or removed from the enclosure.

Using AirClean Systems’ proven ductless fume hood design, these enclosures pull room air through the back baffle and filter chemical fumes, vapours and particulate via bonded carbon and/or HEPA filtration before returning clean air back to the room. Face velocity and filters are continuously monitored and controlled via the AirSafe automatic safety controller.

The firm says the E-Series enclosures are a ‘green’ laboratory solution that helps eliminate energy waste associated with total exhaust fume hood usage.

All E-Series ductless fume hoods meet and exceed relevant OSHA and ANSI Z9.5 standards, the firm says. They are produced in the US and shipped fully assembled.
