The Purifier Clean Bench is a deeper subject
Just in time for spring training, we’ve deepened our “bench.” Labconco introduces the addition of heavy hitters to the line of Purifier® Horizontal Clean Benches. The standard Purifier Horizontal Clean Bench comes complete with a stainless steel work surface and side walls made of tempered safety glass. An interlocked, germicidal UV lamp with UV screen for additional personnel protection during decontamination is offered as an option. And the line has expanded to additional widths (3’, 4’, 6’ & 8’) and depths (21” and 26”) to fit your needs.
The Purifier Horizontal Clean Bench is the ISO Class 5 work station of choice to protect materials that do not generate harmful aerosols or vapors, yet require a particulate-free environment. Because they do not provide protection to the user, they should not be used in conjunction with biohazardous material, toxins or radionuclides. During operation, room air is drawn through a prefilter in the top of the clean bench to trap large particulates. Then, the air flows through a 99.99% efficient HEPA filter and is projected horizontally across the entire work area. This HEPA-filtered air minimizes cross contamination in the work area and provides a particulate-free work environment.
Unique to the Purifier Horizontal Clean Bench is its double HEPA filter seal. The primary gasket seals the upstream side of the filter to prevent unfiltered air from leaking into the work area. The secondary gasket at the front of the HEPA filter seals the downstream side of the filter frame. The area between these two gaskets is maintained under negative pressure. Should a leak occur at the primary HEPA filter gasket, the contaminated air is immediately recaptured and refiltered protecting your valuable work.
Applications for Purifier Horizontal Clean Bench include plant tissue culture, media plate preparation, electronics inspection, medical device assembly and pharmacy drug preparation. And did you know that Labconco also offers Vertical Clean Benches
