Superior airflow for better safety......what is your health worth? ! ULPA...the best on the market !

  • Ambient air is pulled through the perforations located towards the work zone front to prevent contamination of the work surface and work product. The inflow does not mix with the clean air within the cabinet work zone. Inflow air travels through a return path toward the common air plenum (blower plenum) at the top of the cabinet.
  • Approximetely 40% of the air in the common plenum is exhausted through the ULPA filter to the room. The remaining 60% of the air is passed through the downflow ULPA filter and into the work area as a vertical laminar flow air stream bathing the work surface in clean air.
  • The uniform non-turbulent air stream protect against cross contamination within and throughout the work area.
  • Near the work surface the downflow air stream splits with a portion moving toward the front air grille and the remainder moving to the rear air grille. A small portion of the ULPA filtered downflow enters the intake perforations at the side capture zones at a higher velocity (small blue arrows).
  • A combination of inflow and downflow air streams forms an air barrier that prevents contaminated room air from entering the work zone and prevent work surface emissions from escaping the work zone.
  • Air return to the common air plenum where the 40% exhaust and 60% recirculation process is continued.
