Since 1979, Airfiltronix Corporation has been manufacturing quality
ductless filtering systems and enclosures for industry, medicine and
research. Our corporate goal has been to provide our customers with
clean air solutions to their pollution problems, whether they be from
vapors or particulates.
Our hoods were originally developed for cytology labs using xylene
and formalin. Since then, Airfilltronix products have evolved into
many areas. We have found that almost any work situation which involves
the use of chemicals, powders, or sprays can be made safer through
the use of effective capture and filtration systems. Similarly,
any environment in which people and contaminated air co-exist, such
as doctors' waiting rooms, smoking rooms or hospital rooms can be
made safer by removing dust, pollen, bacteria or smoke from the
Each situation must be evaluated individually to determine the
best approach to capture and filtration. Fume hoods must be designed
to maintain a predictable air flow rate through the face opening.
The proper combination of blower capacity and hood face opening
size will accomplish this.
Many of our systems are custom designed enclosures. We work together
with lab managers, plant operations supervisors, and health and
safety engineers to determine an environment's filtration requirements.
We then recommend a highly functional, worker oriented solution.
Since the rise in drug discovery technology we have been provided
the opportunity to put our expertise in fabricating custom enclosures
to work. Over the past several years we have built many custom Laboratory
Robotics Enclosures for numerous companies. We have the capabilties
of working from your drawings or providing you with an AutoCad drawing
to your specific requirements.
An Airfiltronix enclosure can be:
Positive Pressure - creates a dust-free work area of better than
100ppm for highly sensitive samples or instruments.
Our portable clean rooms provide a particle and bacteria free work
area for a fraction of the cost of a full size clean room. Units
will protect product and samples from contamination with Class 100
or better clean air.
Negative Pressure - designed to enclose materials and operations
under negative pressure, thereby preventing airborne contaminants
from escaping into the work environment. Contaminated air is drawn
through a variety of filters to remove pollutants and/or particulate
and recirculates clean air back into the room. Filters are available
for both vapors and particulate and recirculates clean air back
into the room. Filters are available for both vapors and particulate
and they can be combined for multiple substance fitlration.
Containment Hood Only- enclosure with out blowers or filtration
to protect equipment from dust or for connecting to an existing
Most Airfiltronix enclosures are constructed of clear 1/4"
thick acrylic panels with sturdy aluminum framing (other panel materials
are available if required, i.e. chemical resistant, polycarbonate,
polyethylene etc..). Custom ports and hinged doors can be designed
to accomodate your particular application.
