Laboratory fume hoods are an essential tool in any laboratory environment, both in industries and in research and development centers. Their main function is to remove any chemical contaminants in the form of gas or airborne particles that may be harmful to laboratory operators. The objective of this article is to present in detail the technical specifications and characteristics of the Kalstein fume hood models and their relevance in maintaining safety in the laboratory environment.
Highlighting the characteristics of Kalstein equipment
Kalstein laboratory fume hoods are broken down into several main categories, each of which includes a number of models with varying dimensions and specifications. The stainless steel laboratory fume hood (models YR05823, YR05824, YR05825), Liner front panel and guide baffles 5 mm thick anti-melamine board, (Window) 5 mm thick tempered glass, Exclusive PP laboratory glass, Built-in drainage foot, Bottom moving floor, Built-in axial fan, air collector and anti-corrosion hose, With wind regulator, Top side panel (1.2 mm thick galvanized steel plate, epoxy sprayed exterior), Built-in LED tube. https://kalstein.ee/product/stainless-steel-laboratory-fume-hood-yr05823-yr05825/
Hospital laboratory equipment (models YR05820, YR05821, YR05822), Built-in LED tube, Fan and lamp switch, Multifunctional splash-proof socket, 12.7mm corrosion-proof solid core, Physical and chemical table top, Door frames and door panels. https://kalstein.ee/product/laboratory-fume-hoodacid-and-alkali-resistance-fume-cupboard-hospital-laboratory-equipment-yr05820-yr05822/
Tabletop fume hood (models YR05866, YR05867, YR05868); The fume hood is used to protect the laboratory environment and the operator during general chemical applications. It actively protects the operator from inhaling toxic vapors and drastically reduces the risk of fire and explosion. By installing the right filter, it can also protect the environment. https://kalstein.ee/product/desktop-fume-hood-yr05866-yr05868/
The basic chemical laboratory fume hood made of epoxy-coated steel (models YR05808 to YR05812) constitutes the Kalstein range. Integrated axial fan, air collector and anti-corrosion hose, With wind damper, Top side panel (1.2 mm thick galvanized steel plate. Epoxy sprayed exterior), Built-in LED tube, Fan and lamp switch. https://kalstein.ee/product/epoxy-coated-steel-basic-chemical-laboratory-fume-hood-yr05808-yr05812/
The external dimensions of these models range from 1200 mm (W) x 800 mm (D) x 1500 mm (H) to 1800 mm (W) x 800 mm (D) x 1500 mm (H). Their internal dimensions range from 950 mm (W) x 700 mm (D) x 1150 mm (H) to 1550 mm (W) x 700 mm (D) x 1150 mm (H). This gives laboratories the option to select the size that best suits their needs and available space.
The hoods include a work surface at a height of 800 mm and a maximum window opening of 750 mm, allowing the necessary maneuverability during laboratory procedures. Air velocity and exhaust air volume vary between 0.4-0.6 m/s and 800-1000 m³/h, respectively, ensuring efficient extraction of contaminants.
In addition, all Kalstein hoods share features such as a 10W x 1 LED lamp for adequate illumination, a built-in axial flow blower with adjustable speed to suit various extraction needs, and a manual front window made of 5 mm tempered glass, which is adjustable in height for operator comfort.
