AirClean Systems Offers Polypropylene Total Exhaust Fume Hoods
06 Jul 2012

The AirMax fume hood with Wet Fume Scrubber system is a complete solution for protecting personnel from dangerous chemical exposure while also protecting ductwork and the environment by scrubbing acids and other water soluble gases from fume hood exhaust.

AirMax hoods are constructed of thermoplastics (primarily polypropylene) with all contact surfaces utilizing seamless, thermally-welded joints. This eliminates the potential for corrosion commonly associated with metal fume hoods. The advanced rolled-entry airfoil design prevents reverse flow and eddy currents, while an extended rear baffle effectively removes any heavy gases or evaporation from a spill. Dual-wall design provides ample room for mounting fixtures and services.

The Wet Fume Scrubber system is direct-mounted to the fume hood exhaust, eliminating contaminated ductwork between the fume hood and scrubber. An observation window is provided for media inspection, and the scrubber holding tank with recirculating pump is housed in the included base cabinet.

Typical applications of the AirMax with Wet Fume Scrubber are trace metal analysis, hot acid etching, acid digestions and other high-volume, high-acidity processes.

An optional spray bar for perchloric acid use is available, as is an auto pH dosing system for the holding tank.

AirMax fume hoods are available in 36”, 48”, 60”, 72” and 96” widths and are made in the USA.
