Modular Ductless Hood designs offer Versatility and Simplify Capacity Upgrades

Aug 17 2011

Two Captair® models of erlab® ductless fumehoods are available from Camlab, which offer  a breakthrough in modular design and functionality. Laboratory users can benefit from the versatility of more than 50 filter combination options comprising different sizes and fume/particulate handling types.

The CaptairChem® SD and XL models feature filters with a gel seal technology allowing easy filter stacking and ensuring perfect filter column air tightness. The designs allow the retention capacity of the hoods to be increased by simply adding more filter /fan stacks (up to four on the XL model). For extra security, an additional filter can be placed on top of the filter /fan stack ensuring a filtration efficiency of 1% of the OEL of the products handled in the hood.

The SD range comprises four models ranging from 800 to 1600mm wide and can be equipped with one filter stack.

The XL family features four models ranging from 1000 to 1800mm wide and can be equipped with up to four filter stacks. Their deeper enclosure can also provide the users with a wider useful surface.

The filter types available include: AS for organic vapours; BE + for acid and organic vapours; F for Formaldehyde; K for Ammonia and Hepa H14 for powders.

By re-circulating and purifying the laboratory air rather than replacing it, ductless fume hoods preserve heated air in the winter and cooled air in summer reducing energy bills by as much as 90%. Combined with low installation costs and flexibility of location, a typical overall saving of 70% can be achieved compared to a ducted solution.

The ductless fume hoods are all supported by the Erlab Safety Program (ESP)™ proposed by erlab® which comprises a combination of three services, included in the purchase of each captair® filtering fume hood, in order to ensure correct operation throughout its service life. The services include:

• The Valiquest® service which determines the most appropriate filtering fume hood for total safety;

• The Valipass® service certifies and secures the framework of use for the fume hood at installation; and

• The Valiguard® service reinforces safety during on-going applications with constant monitoring of your filtering fume hood, using Camlab’s free automated reminder service.

As a certified Asura® maintenance partner, Camlab is able to offer installation, service and support on the complete range of Captair® units and on all other common fume hood brands.
