AirClean Systems offers Patriot ductless fume hoods
Patriot ductless fume hood
AirClean Systems, a US developer and manufacturer of ductless fume hoods, has added the Patriot series to its portfolio.
The Raleigh, North Carolina-based firm says these products incorporate the advanced technology of its Independence fume hood with the backbone of the AC4000 folding and sliding-sash ductless fume hoods.
Patriot ductless fume hoods feature the AirSafe Touch automatic safety controller for added operator safety. This colour touchscreen controller automatically increases or decreases blower speed to maintain the userís pre-set face velocity ensuring airflow is within standard operating parameters. The current face velocity is displayed at all times. AirSafe Touch also monitors the bonded carbon filtration bed, alerting the user audibly and visually should filter saturation occur.
Patriot includes an Ďapplication confirmationí sequence that is required with every use of the hood. AirSafe Touch displays the approved chemical class for the hood, and waits for a confirmation from the user before allowing the hood to be used.
In addition to safety features, AirSafe Touch also provides a multi-language and multi-unit capability. With the press of a button, users can switch the controller language between English, Spanish, French and German. Airflow can be displayed in both linear feet per minute (LFM) and metres per second (m/s).
Patriot ductless hoods eliminate the need for costly installation, ductwork and over-built HVAC systems associated with traditional fume hood use within the laboratory. An on-board energy meter, accessed via AirSafe Touch, displays the real-time and life-time energy use of the hood.
AirClean Systemsí bonded carbon filtration is standard on all Patriot ductless fume hoods. For added application breadth and capacity, Silconazyne filtration is also available.
Patriotís rolled-entry design combined with AirZone baffling provides laminar flow within the cabinet, preventing eddy currents and keeping fumes or particulate from escaping the hood.
The Patriot series includes folding sash models in 36in and 48in widths, and sliding sash models are initially available in 48in and 72in widths.
