Purair® SafeSEARCH ductless fume hoods are high efficiency workstations designed to increase protection from drugs, chemical vapors, and particulates when opening or examining mail, parcels and other packages coming into a facility.
SafeSEARCH fume hoods are used in forensic laboratories, mailrooms, airports, government offices, correctional facilities, and by law enforcement for routine or suspicious envelope and package inspection.
For safe handling of synthetic opioids, these fume hoods can be used as fentanyl workstations to reduce the risk of exposure.
These packages and mail inspection workstations meet or exceed OSHA, ANSI, and other international standards. At the heart of the Purair fume hood product line is the innovative Air Science® Multiplex™ Filtration Technology combining a broad spectrum, general purpose carbon filter with a HEPA filter to protect the user and the environment.
