The Airone R is a fixed, filtered fume cupboard with laminated glass side panels, equally suitable for prep room use and chemistry practical work to A level. Four standard widths up to 1800mm are available; often a 1000mm fume cupboard is specified for students' use in the classroom, whilst a 1200mm wide unit is preferred for the prep room. Laboratory technicians appreciate the excellent build quality of the Airone R for daily use, and the large working area afforded by the 1200mm wide unit with its built-in sink.
The rate of air flow into the fume cupboard needed to ensure safe operation in schools is set by our engineer during commissioning. An integrated variable air volume (VAV) system ensures this inward air flow remains constant by adjusting the fan speed as the laminated glass sash is raised or lowered. Lowering the sash reduces energy consumption and extends filter lifetime. The unit incorporates a low air flow alarm for complete safety.
The Airone R fume cupboard uses high capacity activated carbon filters to remove airborne contaminants without the need for ducting or potentially costly building works. Unlike a ducted fume cupboard, it does not require make up air to be introduced to the room to operate safely, and does not expel heated indoor air to the outside.
