Replacement Airfoils

Robin, we need quote for replacement arm rests/bottom air foil for two Flow Sciences hoods. The arm rests measure 19.5 inches long by about 2.75 inches wide with curved surface.

 

In 2004 air foils were added to our enclosure to improve air flow.  In an effort to keep the cost to our customers as low as possible, the air foils were made of acrylic.  Later this was upgraded to anodized aluminum as we received many calls of users using the acrylic ones as “arm rests”.  This was never the purpose of the air foil.

We have retrofit kits for all units, but need the model and serial number off the left side wall of the enclosure just above the base of the unit.

 

Replacing the broken acrylic air foil with the anodized aluminum air foil is not difficult because we designed a “groove” under the air foil that slides over the  stand offs.  

Moral of the story, the airfoils are not armrests.  If you do break an airfoil, please have the serial number and measurements ready when you order a new one.  Don’t forget, you can always Ask Robin.
