Chemcap Clearview Ductless Fume Cabinets
Chemcap Clearview carbon filtration fume cabinets (e.g. BC 1206) are an economical solution for containing chemical fumes. The cabinets may be supplied with a support bench or placed directly onto the laboratory bench as required.
Chemcap Clearview hoods are ductless with recirculatory filtration, incorporating efficient ‘Chemcap’ carbon filters for fume removal and HEPA filters for particulates. They work by purifying air drawn through the filters and returning it thoroughly cleaned back to the room. Ductless fume cabinets provide additional safe ventilated space when you are running out of fume cupboard space.
Six models are available with usable widths from 410 to 1500 mm.
Chemcap Pro2 Ductless Fume Cabinets with back-up safety filter system
Bigneat’s Chemcap Pro2 range is similar in many ways to the Chemcap Clearview models. However, a back-up filter is incorporated into the filter housing to provide extra protection for all laboratory users, not just the operator.
Pro2 ductless fume cabinets (e.g. PR 1004) include double Chemcap carbon and/or HEPA particulate filtration. A range of three standard cabinet sizes with touch button controls and audible low airflow alarm. The work surface is black which highlights spillages. This cabinet has a trapezium front access as standard with double hinged flaps for easy access to cabinet interior. Two service ports with covers are supplied in the side panels.
Operator protection is provided by double filtration protection. Chemcap Pro2 is designed for using with the most toxic fumes, vapours and particulates. This cabinet incorporates a back-up filter – in the event of breakthrough of fumes, which happens following the saturation of the lower filter, they will be caught in the back-up filter. Pro2 cabinets offer Clearview all-round vision and are fully portable. Cabinet includes lighting as standard.
To facilitate periodic testing of the inter-filter gases, the filter housing contains an integral sampling chamber. During service the main filter is removed and the back-up filter is dropped down to become the main filter and a new back-up filter installed.
