Airflow is Essential for Critical Containment Engineering controls are used to protect laboratory workers. Examples include exposure control devices (ECDs) such as chemical fume hoods and biosafety cabinets (BSCs), which are ventilated to contain harmful toxins and odors, and safeguard against fume releases into the room. These critical containment cabinets differ in design, and airflow […]

sidewall air velocity sensing for critical containment
Posted By: John Callanan

Performance & Reliability with Sidewall Air Velocity Sensing Lab managers often choose to use sidewall sensors to maintain the face velocity of fume hoods and biosafety cabinets, instead of duct-mounted probe-style sensors, in applications where the exhaust flow is dirty or extremely hot. The long term exposure of probe-style sensors to depositing particulates or corrosive chemicals may compromise […]
