The Eco-Friendly Choice

How it Works : 

The Purair® Basic ductless fume hoods are a series of high efficiency products designed to protect the user and the environment from hazardous vapours generated on the work surface. At the heart of the Purair fume hood product line is the innovative Air Science Multiplex™ Filtration Technology that creates a safe work environment over the widest range of applications in the industry.

Using Advanced carbon filtration technology offers a safe, high performance alternative to conventional ducted fume hoods for a broad range of applications. These ductless fume hoods
isolate and trap chemical vapours to prevent ecological impact through release into the environment.

Contaminated air is pulled through the Multiplex Filtration System. Activated carbon adsorbs chemical vapours and optional HEPA/ULPA filters capture particulates.

Clean air is returned to the room. The main filters are easy to replace with no tools required.

The filter clamps tightly against the filter gasket to prevent filter bypass and maintain filter integrity.

The pre-filter may be replaced while unit is in operation.

Description : 

Versatile and Easy to Install. The ductless fume hood is self-contained and does not require venting to the outside. These units are portable and may be moved from one location to the next with minimal down time and without filter changes. Set-up, operation and filter maintenance are straightforward.

Each filtration system is selected for its specific application :

Carbon filters are available in more than 14 configurations for use with vapours of organic solvents, acids, mercury and formaldehyde etc.

HEPA/ULPA filters can be added for biological safety. Chemical resistant polypropylene spill tray included.

Energy Efficient – because filtered air is returned to the room, no demands are required of the facility HVAC capacity for make-up air.

Cost Effective. Facility ductwork, HVAC and construction costs are eliminated.

Safe to Use. Cabinet airflow and face velocity protect users from incidental exposures to fumes.

Self testing. (selected models) Electronic airflow monitoring assures continuous safety. An electronic gas sensor monitors carbon filter performance.

Filter Configuration : 

The Multiplex feature permits one or more filtration options to be combined to meet a wider range of multiple-use applications. The Purair BASIC can be equipped with a single activated carbon main filter or with a stacked configuration which combines two main filters, each activated to adsorb one or more specific vapors or family of vapors. For safety against particulates, an optional HEPA or ULPA filter can also be added. When used with a HEPA/ULPA filter, the ductless fume hood may be applied as a Class I Biological Safety Cabinet.
The carbon filter is sized to fit the specified product model number and configured to optimize airflow across 100% of the filter surface area. The self-contained assembly maximizes filter efficiency, prolongs filter life, optimizes diffusion and saturation and improves user safety.
The Electrostatic Pre-Filter protects the main filters from aerosols, mists, dust and particulates. 100% efficiency for particles 3 microns and larger.
The Activated Carbon Main Filter is a single or stacked filter configuration.
HEPA/ULPA Filter Optional: Both HEPA and ULPA filters use micro-glass fibre media designed to capture fine particles and biologicals. Both filters can capture particles smaller than the micron size for which they are tested. HEPA and ULPA filter efficiencies are 99.97% at 0.3 microns and 99.999% at 0.12 microns respectively.
