ATEX Fume Extraction for Landfill Organic Waste

Landfill gas is a natural byproduct of the decomposition of organic materials which are put into landfill. The gas is composed of roughly 50% methane (CH4) and 50% carbon dioxide (CO2) and a small amount of non-methane organic compounds. Methane is a potent greenhouse gas and is harmful to the environment. When organic waste is first deposited into landfill, it goes through the initial stages of decomposition where small amounts of methane are generated. As the conditions change during the subsequent stages of decomposition, an increase ...


Fume Cupboards & Alarms

Axair’s Labair controls range has been created for applications involving hazardous fume extraction such as fume cupboards and chemical cabinets.

SEAT Fume Fans Plastic Fantastic for Educational Environments

In April 2014, a fire, which started in a small domestic refrigerator, caused over £100,000 worth of damage to science equipment and rooms at a Preston based college. The specialist 'Plant & Soil science' laboratories were rapidly refurbished in order to get them ready in time for the start of the new college year and this included the installation of a number of SEAT fume extract fans from Axair. The SEAT S35 models were applied to the extract hoods over the laboratory furnaces. Supplied complete they were delivered with weather ped...


HGI Fan Proves Fume Favorite for High Volume Extraction

We recently supplied a number of HGI-125-T-1 axial fans to an air handling contractor that had designed a ventilation system for a PVC sheet manufacturer. The PVC manufacturing process produces a number of gases, including hydrogen chloride, and the wall mounted axial fans would allow for the control and extraction of any potentially toxic fumes from their facilities. Encased in galvanised anti corrosive metal, the belt driven HGI-125-T-1 is designed to move large volumes of air at low speed, operating at 437 rpm to produce a maximum airf...


Laboratory Fume Extraction: How to Ensure Perfect Performance & Protection

Ensuring that personnel are not exposed to hazardous or odorous chemicals is of paramount importance in laboratory environments, therefore a fume cupboard extraction system is often essential. Simply installing a system is not enough though; operators should consistently check that the cupboard is functioning properly and that the airflow velocity is reaching the required level. The best way to do this is by installing an airflow monitor. Axair are the exclusive UK distributor for SEAT Ventilation, a world leader in the design and manufactur...
