Air Science®, LLC of Ft. Myers, FL announced the introduction of a new series of Enhanced Filtration Technology (EFT™) carbon filters for use in the company’s line of ductless fume hoods.
Enhanced Filtration Technology is a universal filtration system developed by Air Science® for use with a wide range of core chemical families. These include organic acids, alcohols, aliphatic hydrocarbons, aromatic hydrocarbons, esters, aldehydes, ketones, ethers, halogens and others. Although the EFT™ system is weighted to accommodate these families, it can handle inorganic acids as well.
Independent testing has confirmed that the Air Science® EFT™ system is superior in critical areas to recently introduced “green” fume hood systems marketed to the industry. When tested to AFNOR NFX 15-211 criteria, which requires that three chemicals – isopropanol, cyclohexane and hydrochloric acid – be tested under very precise conditions to ascertain and establish retention capacity at 1% of the threshold limit value (TLV) for each chemical, the EFT filters outperform other universal filters in two of three critical categories.
In the third category or inorganic acids, the EFT™system offers a realistic usable capacity ideal for applications with moderate to heavy acids where ductless fume hoods made of metal are subject to corrosion and rust. In those applications Air Science® recommends its polypropylene or total exhaust hoods with a specially formulated heavy duty acid filter.
Air Science® EFT™ filters are available as an option on Air Science® Purair Advanced™ and Purair Eco™ series ductless fume hoods, and can be retrofitted on many Air Science® ductless fume hoods already in service worldwide.
