Fume Cupboard

Water Wash Industrial Fume Cupboard

Water Wash fume cupboard within an industrial laboratory

These cupboards are ideal when perchloric, hydrofluoric or other corrosive substances are used.

Water wash fume cupboards are built in standard configuration and have two options Main fed supply or Re circulatory.

Mains fed water wash fume cupboards have a water front control on the service plate and dump directly to a waste connection. Extracted air passes through a knitmesh housing to remove moisture before discharging to atmosphere.

Re circulatory type fume cupboards work when the fume cupboard is switched on and the water is recycled via a holding tank and pump. Extracted air passes through a knitmesh housing to remove moisture before discharging to atmosphere

Both types of fume cupboards are manufactured to UK Standards BS EN 14175.

Our Fume cupboards are both pre-wired and pre-plumbed to ensure minimum installation time on site.
