Laboratory Fume Extraction Roadshow

Following on from the Effective Laboratory exhibition at Strathclyde University on 1st March 2016, Axair Fans took to the City of Nottingham to showcase new developments and energy efficient air movement technology while sharing our technical knowledge and experience of laboratory air movement. Held on Wednesday 21st September, the event saw delegates attend breakout sessions to discuss and learn more about effective laboratory design and system integration. Particularly interesting was the focus regards how an enhanced laboratory design can...


Impressive Efficiencies In Fume Extraction

A common control within laboratories for the prevention of explosive and hazardous substances is by using a fume extraction system. Axair Fans has a wide range of corrosion resistant polypropylene fans for use within Industrial, Commercial & Educational fume extraction. There's nothing more exciting for our technical engineers than seeing the largest fan in their range leave the building. Especially into an application perfectly suited to its main features. Powerful, energy saving and quiet, it's hard to ask for more from a fume extr...


We’re Going Big On Industrial Fume Extraction

We recently announced the arrival at Axair HQ of the largest plastic fan we supply taken from the SEAT collection of corrosion resistant polypropylene fans. So we thought it was about time we spoke a little more about this powerful, energy saving yet quiet machine. It’s hard to ask for more from a fume extraction fan than the above qualities but the impressive SEAT S50 has all those attributes and more. Designed for exhausting fumes from hazardous manufacturing processes, the S50 and its smaller family member the S35 are the latest indust...


Let Our Stack Support Take The Strain

The latest addition to the Axair accessories portfolio, the New Discharge Stack Support is made from a galvanised steel construction offering stability and rigidity to accommodate the height of the discharge stack.

How Does it Work? The Stack support holds the discharge...


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...


Corrosion Resistant Fans – An Axair Guide

Plastic fans have come a long way from their origins as a somewhat  ‘home made’ product. The principal manufacturers, including our partner, SEAT Ventilation, are now offering powerful, low noise, low vibration products with very good mechanical isolation. Here, we offer an overview of the key principles and benefits of plastic centrifugal fans. Application Laboratory fume cupboards are by far the most popular application for corrosion resistant plastic fans. There are several other important applications such as the ventilation of fumes ...


The New ATEX Directive – Axair Explain the Key Changes

Trying to understand the existing ATEX regulations can be a challenging process for many, so the arrival of an update to the legislation may not exactly be met with open arms. Directive 2014/34/EU was published in the Official Journal of the European Union on March 29th, 2014 and will eventually replace ATEX 94/9/EC.  Relating to the supply of equipment for use in potentially explosive atmospheres, the new directive is part of a New Legislative Framework (NLF) which also covers a variety of other products such as electromagnetic and low ...


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...


New SEAT S50: Powerful Protection from Hazardous Fumes

Powerful, energy saving and quiet, it’s hard to ask for more from a fume extraction fan but the new SEAT S50 has all those attributes and more. Designed for exhausting fumes from hazardous manufacturing processes, the S50 is the latest addition to SEAT’s S Series and can support perilous processes such as PCB manufacturing, component washing and etching. Fitted with a backward curved impeller, the S50 can produce a high pressure but with low noise and impressive efficiency. The fan’s polypropylene construction makes it ideal for use in...


Connecting the Spigots

Our flexible connectors are designed to fit the ‘S’ and ‘ST’ range of SEAT fans. The flexible connectors suit the fans inlet and discharge spigots. There are two types of flexible connector in our range of accessories. The straight type has the same connection size at both ends and the taper type which have different sizes at each end. Flexible connectors are supplied as a kit which includes one sleeve and two stainless steel fixing clips and basic fitting instructions. Flexible connectors are designed to isolate the fan from the ...
