Custom Fume Hoods for a Range of Applications and Environments
Germfree manufactures units that feature: complete stainless steel construction, chemical resistant coatings, laminar flow filtration, as well as Class I, Division 1 explosion-proof systems. These laboratory fume hoods are universally used for the safe handling of chemical fumes.
Custom Stainless Steel Fume Hoods
Because of Germfree’s stainless steel fabrication expertise and intimate knowledge of airflow dynamics, custom-designed stainless steel fume hoods are available to meet your specific needs.
Germfree’s custom stainless steel fume hoods are all-welded type 316L stainless steel with radiused bends. They are ideal for use in cleanrooms, pathology suites, food processing areas or any environment in which frequent wash downs are required and a non-shedding, corrosive-resistant material is needed. For increased chemical resistance the stainless steel can be Halar® coated.
Laminar Flow Fume Hoods (Cleanroom)
The Laminar Flow Fume Hood combines the features of a vertical laminar flow cleanbench with that of a fume hood. This versatile piece of equipment can solve many difficult and sometimes conflicting air quality requirements. Germfree’s Laminar Flow Fume Hoods allow for the handling of products that must be kept particle free, while effectively keeping hazardous and noxious particulates and gases away from personnel. We offer both HEPA and UPLA filters. Laminar Flow Fume Hoods typically provide ISO 5 / Class 100 air. However, we also feature Laminar Flow Fume Hoods that provide up to Class 10 / ISO 4 filtration.
Explosion-Proof Fume Hoods up to Class I, Div. 1
All Germfree fume hoods can built as explosion-proof units. We manufacture explosion-proof fume hoods up to Class I, Division 1 for applications “where ignitable concentrations of flammable gases, vapors or liquids may be present” (ANSI/NFPA, NEC).
Exhaust Filtration Systems
Air filtration systems are available in a wide range of types, sizes and configurations. Equipment selection is based upon the degree of particle or gas removal required, quantity and characteristics of the contaminants within the space as well as the intended applications. Germfree has developed a High Containment Filtration System for hazardous materials where fail-safe redundant exhaust air filtration is necessary. These systems provide the proper filters and airflow required to remove hazardous materials.
These units are often used for analytical and environmental processes. Please see our Analytical Lab section for information on the range of laboratories we offer for these industries.
