Contained Vented Enclosures (CVEs) – Laminar Flow Hoods
Dual HEPA Filters – Bag In / Bag Out Series
Flow Sciences’ Dual HEPA BIBO Series of Contained Vented Enclosures are designed to prevent loss of containment with the use of airfoils and plenums, creating a laminar airflow across the work surface, which reduces eddies and turbulence. The ETA Series features a front door lift that allows for easy loading and unloading of equipment. The single 4” thick HEPA filter with fan is ideal for benchtop / scale up and nanotechnology applications, and has been proven by an independent test organization to contain loss to below 1 µg/m^3 based on process and quality. FSI’s state-of-the-art BIBO feature allows the operator to safely remove and replace the main filter while maintaining maximum containment from toxic fumes and particles. The top-mounted exhaust system can recirculate air into the lab or send it directly to the house exhaust without transferring vibration from the fan unit to the work surface. As an additional safety measure, FSI’s Contained Vented Enclosures feature a face velocity alarm that visually and audibly alerts the operator when airflow is compromised. These features allow for reproducibility and accuracy of weighing. In case of an accident, the dished phenolic base is chemically resistant and designed to contain spills. The ETA Series is available in 3’ or 4’ standard width units and features options such as LED lights and waste ports to safely transfer contaminants from the enclosure.
The Flow Sciences Top Mounted Containment Enclosures eliminates vibration both on the work surface and on the work bench. Through engineering controls and intuitive design, the vibration of the does not transfer to the work surface, allowing for accuracy in weighing and other sensitive applications.
