Laboratory Fume Cupboards: Containment, Innovation and Sustainability

Aug 03 2023

Clean Air is a leading designer and manufacturer of state-of-the-art fume cupboards, ventilated enclosures, extract systems, and sustainable fume cupboard solutions for laboratory environments. It believes sustainability and innovation go hand-in-hand, and it’s transforming the fume cupboard industry with cutting-edge products and pioneering technologies. Its latest exciting initiative is the introduction of CFD (Computational Fluid Dynamics) to its R&D processes.

Clean Air takes its responsibility to protect laboratory personnel very seriously, and it understands the critical importance of safety and efficiency in laboratory operations. Its user-friendly fume cupboards are designed to provide the highest levels of containment.

It also recognises its duty to be as environmentally responsible as possible. It offers energy-efficient Variable Air Volume (VAV) and Autosash systems which empower its clients to cut their carbon emissions and is also working hard to reduce its own carbon footprint. Since 2017, it has cut its emissions by 50%, even as its turnover has doubled.

The innovative integration of CFD simulations into Clean Air’s design processes reduces its reliance on SF6 gas (the industry standard) and eliminates the need for physical prototypes. CFD design enables the optimisation of airflow within fume cupboards, enhancing safety and energy efficiency. Clean Air is the only fume cupboard manufacturer with this level of expertise.

By combining CFD, VAV, and Autosash technology, Clean Air is providing laboratories with technically advanced fume cupboards that not only meet the highest safety standards but also deliver significant energy and cost savings.

Clean Air is transforming the landscape of laboratory safety and sustainability. It is contributing to a safer, more environmentally friendly world while driving innovation in the field of fume cupboards.
