Laminar air flow (LAF) is a type of airflow used in a variety of industries and applications. LAF is air that is drawn in through a specialized hood and funneled through a series of ducts, panels, and diffusers, before being discharged into a room. This airflow can be computer-controlled to ensure clean, filtered air enters the room. Laminar air flow can be especially helpful for medical professionals and individuals who work with sensitive components, such as research scientists.
A vertical laminar air flow hood is the best for applications that require the use of large equipment on the work surface as the workspace is taller and larger with less turbulence caused by the vertical airflow. A vertical laminar flow cabinet is often favoured for many applications due to its resemblance to cleanroom setups.
The airflow in vertical laminar flow cabinet by Global Lab Supply proceeds in a downward motion which, when coupled with the benefit of gravity, can assist in pushing particles down and away from the work surface and operators. A nominal filter face velocity of 0.45m/s or 90 fpm (+/- 10%) ensures a sufficient number of air changes within the enclosed area of the cabinet in order to maintain cleanliness.
The filtered air travels across the internal work zone of the cabinet in a unidirectional vertical stream and leaves the main work chamber across the entire open front of the cabinet. The main body is constructed out of mild steel with an abrasive resistant white epoxy powder coated finish or stainless steel based on customer requirements.
Easy to clean, SS 304 grade worktop will never rust, chip, or generate particles. Built-in warm white, LED-based lighting provides excellent illumination of the work zone and reduces operator fatigue in a vertical laminar flow cabinet.
Alpha linear (best manufacturer of clean air equipment) provides a fully enclosed vertical laminar airflow and horizontal laminar flow within your storage cabinet. As a result, the cabinets contain collected dust, fumes, contaminants, and pollutants. This reduces product contamination and extends product life.
- Use of energy efficient DC ECM motor leads to considerable energy savings compared to AC motor.
- Automatic Airflow adjustments option of DC ECM motor ensure the constant airflow across the work surface thus ensuring product safety and also increases the filter life.
- Each clean bench is individually factory tested for safety and performance in accordance with international standards.
- All components are cleanroom compatible.
