A common control within laboratories for the prevention of explosive and hazardous substances is by using a fume extraction system. The most commonly used fan for hazardous fume extraction is a centrifugal fan. This is large due to the fact they can generate large differences in pressure and can produce air flows against considerable resistance.

commercial & educational fume extraction. There is 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; the S50 is taken from Axair’s S range of fans supplied by SEAT. Fitted with a backward curved impeller, the S50 can produce high pressure but with low noise and impressive efficiencies. Our team of specialist engineers advised that the s50 was the ideal choice for our client.  Requiring the safe control of pollutants from twelve fume cupboards within the building, they needed a fan that could deliver the duty required when all were in use in addition to being suitable when not at full capacity. The S50, available in LG handing options, removes the air along the duct and through a carbon filtering system which removes a wide spectrum of atmospheric pollutants and acid gases. This is then vented out as required.

When coupled with an inverter to facilitate enhanced speed control and an easy stop/start function, the S series fan was the perfect component to exhaust fumes from the hazardous process. A year later, the customer is extremely pleased with the performance of this powerful machine.
