Laminar flow booth
17 July 2013
Dust and fume extraction specialist Flextraction has introduced a Laminar Flow Booth to its range of products and offered a modular unit in 2, 4 or 6 meter widths.
Ideally suited to those environments where dust generation is unavoidable, cannot be contained or collected at source, it is designed to be used in conjunction with a full width, standard height (900mm) work bench. The unit provides laminar air flow across the operator, extracting airborne respirable dust particles towards the rear of the booth, away from the operator’s breathing zone and operating with constant air flow, it prevents contamination of the surrounding area. Using three stages of disposable filtration to remove the dust, with the final stage being through a High Efficiency Particle Air (HEPA) filter, the air is re-circulated back into the working environment via a diffuser, offering the added benefit of saving on heat loss.
