Art No: BV1000DFW – Down Flow Workstation

The BV1000DFW offers unrestricted front and side access enables applications needing complex and in-depth operator involvement. Downward airflow in the chamber protects the operator and provides protection from fumes, vapour and particulate by drawing air through the stainless steel perforated work surface, ensuring compliance with COSHH regulations.

This is our most popular down flow workstation for laboratories thanks to its high performance and affordable price. This unit provides a robust fume extraction solution for students, offering a wide open face area for unhindered operation, making it perfect for the classroom environment. It is also well suited to laboratory environments, forensics and industrial production facilities.

How Does the BV1000DFW Operate?

Place onto a desk, bench or trolley and then simply plug in and switch on. This compact unit allows for incredibly simple operation and takes up minimal worktop space thanks to its compact 1000 mm width.

Once operational, the strong downward airflow forces fumes, smoke, odours and associated particulates down through the base of the unit. Using highly efficient filtration, the hazardous substances are completely removed before being released back as clean, safe to breathe air.

What can the BV1000DFW Science Laboratory Extraction System be used for?

These units are designed predominantly for science laboratory and science classroom cleanliness and for immediate operator protection from concentrations of airborne contaminants. Our downflow range is constructed from a epoxy powder coated steel frame and suitable for many different laboratory, industrial and forensic applications, including: slide staining or minor dissection, routine testing on a laboratory bench and extraction in a production facility.

If you’re uncertain this is the correct solution for your laboratory requirements please contact BenchVent for advice on the choice of machine for any given situation.
