Enhancing laboratory safety with Kalsteinโ€™s gas extraction hood

The laboratory, an essential environment in various fields of study and industry, can sometimes become a high-risk place due to the handling of toxic, corrosive, flammable substances, among others. To minimize these risks and keep the safety of those working in such an environment, gas extraction hoods represent a key tool.

Robust and corrosion-resistant design

What sets the YR05826, YR05827 and YR05828 models from Kalstein apart in terms of their housings, they are used in the production of 8.0 mm polypropylene PP plate welding, which gives these equipment high resistance to acid and alkaline corrosion. In addition, due to their design, the inner side plate can be fixed with a water and gas key, and the rear plate with a deflector, roof lighting, and gas hood device. https://www.kalstein.se/product/laboratory-ventilation-cleaning-fume-extraction-system-hood-equipment-fume-hood-yr05826-yr05828/ย he projection of dangerous substances, providing good performance in waterproofing, acid and alkali resistance. This makes it ideal for carrying out work involving these types of substances.

Efficiency in gas management and ventilation

The gas hood in these equipment models maintains the aforementioned corrosion resistance, and they have a rectangular opening at the bottom of the entrance, and a circular opening at the top, facilitating the correct management and flow of the produced gases.

Moreover, they have a deflector also made of 8.0 mm PP polypropylene, which helps to maintain the integrity of the equipment against strong acids and alkalis. This deflector creates a gas chamber that allows the complete exhaustion of contaminated gas.

Functionality and safety for the user

Each piece of equipment comes with a foolproof fluorescent lamp โ€“ waterproof, anti-corrosion, anti-oxidant โ€“ of 30W, providing optimal visibility in the work area for the operator thus reducing the risk of errors or accidents.

Aiming to ensure the operatorโ€™s well-being, they include a mobile vertical lift door and a piece of tempered glass window. This allows the operator to have a clear and full view of the workspace, while at the same time it protects the operator from any substance that could be floating in the air, as it can be stopped at any activity point.

Variety of sizes and adaptable functions

In addition to these characteristics present in the YR05826 to YR05828 equipment, Kalstein also offers the YR05808 to YR05812, YR05813 to YR05816, and YR05820 to YR05822 models with variations in external and internal sizes to adapt to different needs and spaces. https://www.kalstein.se/product/epoxy-coated-steel-basic-chemical-laboratory-fume-hood-yr05808-yr05812/

These models also incorporate an adjustable airflow speed to improve efficiency in gas extraction, and maintain robustness, corrosion resistance, and measures to protect the operator. https://www.kalstein.se/product/epoxy-coated-steel-basic-chemical-laboratory-fume-hood-yr05813-yr05816/

In conclusion, given the broad demands of a laboratory, it is necessary to have high-resistance, functionality, and flexible equipment. Kalsteinโ€™s gas extraction hood models meet all these requirements, making them an effective investment for any laboratory. https://www.kalstein.se/product/laboratory-fume-hoodacid-and-alkali-resistance-fume-cupboard-hospital-laboratory-equipment-yr05820-yr05822/
