- Flexible and Mobile Chemical Workstations
Product News: Flexible and Mobile Chemical WorkstationsAirClean® Systems has released the AC600 Series of chemical workstations which offer flexibility and mobility for the laboratory environment.
The AC600 Series of ductless chemical workstations are designed to provide a low cost solution for protection of the operator and environment from toxic vapors, gases, fumes and particulate when performing low-volume applications with known chemicals. While smaller and more mobile than a traditional or ductless fume hood, AC600 Series chemical workstations include the same advanced safety features and technology as their larger brethren – gas phase bonded carbon filtration, real-time gas detection and constant airflow control and monitoring.
AirClean Systems ductless fume hoods and chemical workstations utilize gas phase bonded carbon filtration, providing higher capacity and eliminating filter ‘dusting’ caused by traditional granular carbon filters. In addition to standard formulations, multi-layered and chemically-impregnated filters are available to increase load capacity. AC600 Series workstations can even be configured with multiple carbon and HEPA filters.
The AirSafe™ automatic safety controller, a standard feature on all AC600 Series workstations, displays, monitors and maintains proper airflow to ensure fumes and vapors do not enter the operator’s breathing zone. Regardless of sash position, the microprocessor-based controller will automatically raise or lower the blower speed to maintain the user-set face velocity. In addition to monitoring and controlling airflow, AirSafe monitors gas phase filtration, providing both audible and visible alarms once saturation reaches the alarm set-point.
AC600 Series workstations can be placed virtually anywhere within the laboratory with the only installation requirement being access to a standard power outlet. Each workstation is available with an optional sturdy cart, allowing flexibility and mobility within the laboratory. AC600 Series workstations are self contained, fully assembled, factory tested and certified before shipment.
Typical applications include general chemistry involving small volumes of common chemicals, tissue staining, gluing operations, cleaning and polishing of parts, sample preparation, soldering applications and a variety of other common laboratory manipulations and formulations.
