The Captair Flow fume hoods are designed to protect samples handled in the enclosure using very low energy consumption. Air entering the enclosure is free of any external contamination and provides an ultra-clean work atmosphere, therefore, contamination sensitive samples are well protected. The ultra-clean air entering the cabinet is quality ISO 5 (EN ISO 14644) which corresponds to U.S. class 100 (less than 100 particles per ft3> 0.5 microns) and class A and B of the GMP guide published by the European pharmaceutical industry.
By adding a carbon filter upstream, the fan module protects the enclosure volume of gaseous pollutants present in ambient air. The fan draws air from the laboratory and it passes throughout the H14 HEPA filter which retains particles larger than 0.1 microns with 99.995% filtration efficiency.
