Gallay Medical & Scientific is commonly asked
for advice regarding fume extraction. Do recirculating fume cabinets deserve
their ‘energy hog’ reputation? What are the key differences between ducted and
ductless fume hoods? And what are the
benefits of choosing a recirculating fume cabinet?
answer is that due to advances in carbon filtration technology, recirculating
systems are now more able to compete in increasingly high-volume workplaces; where
previously, extremely high filtration requirements necessitated an externally
advances come as a relief for environmentally conscious laboratory managers
across the country. Instead of purging air-conditioned and contaminated exhaust
air into the atmosphere, a recirculating fume cabinet system recycles pristine
air throughout the workplace. Electricity savings are possible with a recirculating
system as conditioned air stays within the building.
addition to these benefits, a Captair recirculating fume cabinet can be easily
installed by laboratory staff and does not require extensive planning or site
modifications. With the addition of the Captair ESP maintenance program, users
can receive an even higher level of protection.
