Fans for Laboratory & Pharmaceutical Applications

 

Fans are used to create a negative pressure locally within the laboratory hood, to ensure the containment of potentially toxic fumes within the experimental environment and to extract, smoke and fumes to scrubber systems.

 

The requirement may be to deal with highly toxic or even explosive gases which demands fans built to the highest specifications including explosion-proof (ATEX), where the fan should not precipitate an explosion but will also withstand without rupture, any gas ignition taking place.

ACI Fans are used extensively by fume cupboard and containment manufacturers
