Extraction from Test Chambers

Test chambers are designed to examine various types of materials in many different ways for a wide scope of applications. Chambers may be required to measure corrosion or to test components to destruction. Their primary function is to speed up the processes to simulate time in an environment with certain characteristics. Finding the long term resistance to corrosion of materials requires the speeding up of corrosion by using certain substances. For example, a salt spray testing chamber would recreate the effects of a harsh offshore environme...


Swimming Pool Extraction Fans: Corrosion Resistance

Chlorine is widely used to treat water for swimming pools in leisure centres and domestic pools. When extracting chlorine fumes from areas such as plant rooms and storage cupboards after dosing, the air may be corrosive. If this is the case, it will need to be extracted via a polypropylene fan and plastic ductwork as metal systems would corrode over time. ATEX Requirements Chlorine has the potential to become explosive when mixed with certain other chemicals. Therefore, the swimming pool extraction system may need to be ATEX (Atmospheres Expl...


Fans for School Fume Cupboards

During school science experiments and demonstrations, it is commonplace to use fume cupboards. School fume cupboards are designed to capture and remove air-borne hazardous substances generated during laboratory experiments to reduce the risk of exposure to a safe level. These include harmful gases, vapours, aerosols and particulates. Fume cupboards prevent potentially dangerous vapours being released into the classroom in two main ways; through ducting or through filtered, recirculated air. Ducted fume cupboards draw air through the sash ope...


Fume Cupboards & Alarms

Axair’s Labair controls range has been created for applications involving hazardous fume extraction such as fume cupboards and chemical cabinets. There are two models available A and C, both of which are available in a standard version or Digital. Both the A and C series are white with 3 push buttons: fan on/off, light on/off and alarm mute. They also feature a green LED light that illuminates to signify that the airflow is OK, a red LED light that flashes to alert that the air speed is too low and a sash high LED which starts flashing whe...


Plastic Fans – Price Freeze!

With the start of the new financial year on the horizon for many, we are pleased to announce a price freeze on our entire plastic fan range until at least 2016! This means that buyers can forecast orders and budgets using the same competitive pricing that we offered throughout 2014; this should prove particularly beneficial to those buyers in the educational sector, as they start to plan for their summer maintenance schedules. Manufactured from an anti-corrosive polypropylene, typical applications for our SEAT plastic fan range include labor...
