As research and laboratories evolve, AirClean® Systems continues to innovate with sophisticated, efficient fume containment solutions. Independence™ is the culmination of two decades of research and development in airflow design, gas-phase filtration, fume detection and fume hood control technologies. The ductless fume hood has now come of age.
Independence provides real-time PPM measurements for filter saturation, an on-board application validation system, class-leading airflow control and a host of innovative features unique to the ductless fume hood marketplace. Never before has a fume hood been able to offer this level of safety and performance.
Administrator-defined access for up to eight users within three levels.
Eight distinct logins with varying levels of access.
Each login has a unique passcode.
Currently installed filters and approved chemical application are easily available.
Real-time application validation at your fingertips.
Instant notification is available via SMS text message.
Web portal is provided for alarm notification setup.
Auto Blower Mode
High⁄Low Blower Mode
The advanced airflow sensor allows hood administrators to set the minimum and maximum face velocity. Should the face velocity move out of this range, the user is notified with an audible and visible alarm.
Temperature sensors are incorporated in both the chamber and filtration column, alerting the user both audibly and visibly in the event of a significant increase in temperature.
The sliding safety glass sash is monitored by a sash reader, providing the AirSafe™ TOUCH controller with real-time sash position information. An administrator can set high and/or low sash alarm points that will notify the user if the sash is out of range.
A timed control mode allows the services to run for a pre-set time, then automatically turn off once the timer has expired. Additionally, if blowers are not on, burning gas is disabled. Both features help prevent gas build-up in the event that a manual fixture is left open.
|AirZone baffling establishes a proper horizontal airflow pattern and directs toxins away from the operator in a predictable pattern, eliminating "dead spots" within the hood
|Vertical sliding safety glass sash
|Dual wall construction allows for front mounting of services such as water, gas, or electric
|Constant monitoring of fume hood face velocity with variable airflow control to user preset value
|Large capacity filtration bed to handle a wide variety of applications
|Touch-screen microprocessor control with variable airflow controller and constant filter monitoring
|Lab event timer
|Filter and electronics are located above the workspace, eliminating the chance of a chemical spill entering these sensitive areas
|Vented and unvented polypropylene base cabinets
|Duplex electrical outlets
|Polypropylene laboratory sinks
|Wall mounted fixtures and taps
Room air flows away from the operator and enters the enclosure in a horizontal pattern.
Room air mixes with both lighter and heavier gases.
Mixed air is drawn into the AirZone baffling.
Contaminated air is directed through the filtration bed.
Clean air is recirculated into the room.
