Erlab 483 Smart Ductless Fume Hood

SKU: # 483

Safer to Operate 

Erlab Captair 483 Smart is the 4ft (1298 mm) length Ductless Fume Hood, with AFNOR NFX 15-211 and SEFA 9 filtration efficiency standard (classes 1 and 2).  The configurable filtering system can be adapted to filter gases, solvents, powders and particulates keeping the user and the laboratory protected by safely and efficiently recirculating air within the room, free from any toxic hazardous chemicals.

Simpler to Use 

Built-in Smart Technology enables visual light and audio communication to indicate the status of the hood.  To alert you, the light will pulse, an audio pattern will indicate if : Air Flow is Compromised, Fan Failure and Filter Breakthrough.

Savings and Simple Maintenance 

No ductwork cost, Less compliance cost and significantly reduce the energy cost, if compared with the ducted system. Energy consumption of the Erlab Captair 483 Smart Ductless Fume Hood is only 160 W.

Compliance with applicable world safety standards

AFNOR NFX 15-211:2009: France – JG/T 385-2012 : China – SEFA 9 : USA – BS 7989 : England – DIN 12 927 : Germany – EN 1822 : 1998 (HEPA & ULPA) – CE Marking

Face velocity meter

Built-in Electronic Hotwire anemometer continuously controlling and monitoring the air face velocity within 0.4 and 0.6 m/s, detects clogging of filters – HEPA or ULPA filters

Face velocity at sash opening

0.4 to 0.6 m/s (80-120 fpm) according to international and local standard (USECHH Reg. 2000)

Smart Software

Monitor remotely the safety functions of the Erlab Ductless Fume Hood's performance, change of settings, and events history via computer software and/or Smartphone App

Enclosure containment

<0.05 ppm of SF6 detected at the maneque nose level measured according to ASHRAE 110 testing method

Molecular filters efficiency

<1% of the PEL-TWA of the handled chemicals released downstream the filtration system

Filter revolving technology

2 identical molecular filters located below and above a fan/detection chamber ensuring no chemical escape when the lower layered filter reached its saturation. Upper layered filter will replace the saturated lower layered filter. Upper layer will be replaced with a new molecular filter.

Filter capacity

Erlab chemical listed of over 600 chemicals indicating the molecular filter capacity at 1% of the PEL-TWA of the chemicals.

Safety Alert System

Patented "Smart" technology consisting of safety alerts by LED pulsation and coded sounds to express the fan failure, insufficient face velocity or filter saturation/ breakthrough

Filters Saturation detectors (option)

Molecode S for saturation detection by solvents
Molecode A for saturation detection by acids
Molecode F for saturation detection by Formaldehyde
