Esco's Nanocarb™ activated carbon filters are constructed in order to ensure maximum filter efficiency, retention capacity and operator protection. Esco's research scientists and engineers, working in consultation with world-leading authorities on adsorption science, have developed the following set of unique technologies:
Nanocarb™ Filter Options
|All common laboratory chemicals, especially with organics. When no specific requirements are present, or when more than one type of chemical is used.
|Applications involving sulphur dioxide, hydroflouric acid fumes. Removes inorganic / organic acid vapours and fumes.
|Mercury Compounds Filter
|Highly effective for removal of mercury vapour and compounds. (Stable, non-volatile mercuric sulphide filter media).
|Sulphur Compounds Filter
|Removal of sulphur compounds.
|Halogen Compounds Filter
|Removal of halogen compounds like Chlorine, flourine, Iodine, Bromine, Astatine, etc.
|Formaldehyde applications or when aldehydes are present. Hospital pathology and endoscopy applications.
|High performance removal of ammonia/amines by chemisorption.
|Ethers and Chloroform
|Special impregnated carbon for ethers and chloroform.
|Optional HEPA Filter
|HEPA filter with a typical efficiency of 99.99% removes particulates and aerosols. Ductless fume hoods with HEPA filters are suitable for cleanroom applications, or may be used as a Class I Biological Safety Cabinet.
|Optional Secondary Backup Carbon Filter
|When installed, hood complies with the requirements of ANSI/AIHA Z9.5-2003.
