Air Science, LLC Introduces New EFT Enhanced Filtration Technology for Ductless Fume Hood Applications

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 EFTsystem is weighted to accommodate these families, it can handle inorganic acids as well.

Independent testing has confirmed that the Air Science® EFTsystem 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 EFTsystem 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® EFTfilters are available as an option on Air Science® Purair Advancedand Purair Ecoseries ductless fume hoods, and can be retrofitted on many Air Science® ductless fume hoods already in service worldwide.

For information and test results on the Air Science® EFTfilter visit or contact the company toll-free USA, 800-306-0656.

Air Science® is an industry leader in the development of ductless fume hoods and other filtered enclosures used in general laboratory, forensic and industrial applications.
