Custom built fumehoods from Arias Gmbh.

Fume hood from Arias Gmbh.

Because every cleanroom is differently constructed, otherwise standard equipment such as fume hoods must be custom built to fit with the existing infrastructure. The left fume hood is dedicated to solvents and the working surface is made from stainless steel which are chemically resistant to all solvents. The right fume hood is specially designed for acids and bases with the working surface made from polypropylene that is chemically resistant to most acids and bases. The fume hoods are designed to live up to the most strict chemical safety regulations. They are also designed to save space by having storage room below the working surface. For an ergonomic user experience and chemical safety, chemicals and glassware are stored in easily accessible pull-out type drawers with integrated spill containers. Other additional safety mechanisms include sensors in the fume hood that detects larger spills, and sensors for monitoring exhaust flow. When sensors registers a danger, it will shut down all electrical equipment and warn the user. Finally, for superior energy efficiency, the exhaust magnitude is adjusted depending on the position of the glass safety window that protects the user from chemical splashes.
