FC BFC5-01 Benchtop Fume Cupboard
The Economy BFC is a ‘ready to use’, compact, bench mounted fume cupboard. It is ideal for use in laboratory environments where space is limited or where only small volumes of harmful substances are handled.
Being a recirculatory unit means there is no ducting required for its operation or setup. Fumes, gases, vapours and particulates are passed through the unit filters, re-circulating clean air back into the laboratory. This ensures that no dangerous substances are exhausted in to the atmosphere surrounding the laboratory. Its ductless construction also allows the unit to be easily moved and transported.
The clear acrylic panels allow for ‘all-round’ visibility and make the unit easy to clean. The rear of the unit also has lighting to illuminate the work surface.
The operator is protected by a face velocity of 0.5 M/Sec, ensuring the containment of all fumes and particulates. If the airflow falls to an unacceptable level then the operator will be alerted by the built in alarm.
The filter clamping mechanism allows for the filter to be easily installed and ensures an even seal at the filter face at all times to prevent bypass leakage. The main safety filter can be chosen from 11 different Carbon/HEPA types to suit most applications.
