Mechanical ventilation is extremely important for laboratories, which typically have to have tight constraints on humidity levels, air temperature and atmospheric particulate matter in order to ensure the most accurate results on running and conducting experiments. Thankfully, here at Industrial Fans Direct, we provide many different types of ventilation fans that can help you precisely control your indoor air.
Benefits of Laboratory Fans
Laboratories are required to maintain a certain level of air quality and air exchanges in order to ensure the air is healthy and will not interfere with the processes occurring in the lab. Without proper mechanical ventilation, the lab can quickly fill with hazardous fumes and exhaust gases, as well as humidity and particulate matter. Our laboratory fans are designed to help you control odors and fumes, remove excess humidity and increase air circulation and room air exchanges.
Types of Laboratory Fans
Our laboratory fans will help you maintain your desired humidity levels, help control particulate matter and increase air circulation so that you can have clean, healthy laboratory air that will not interfere with your experiments or tests.
Air Circulators, Workstation and Pedestal Fans
Keeping the air moving in a laboratory is essential in order to prevent stagnation and achieve the required number of air exchanges per hour. Our workstation fans, explosion proof air circulators (for areas containing hazardous an or flammable gases or dust), and pedestal fans are perfect for increasing airflow and helping stagnant, stale, contaminated air reach the central HVAC unit where it can be filtered and exhausted to the outside or recirculated, depending on the requirements of your specific laboratory. These high-powered air circulating fans have CFMs between 1,201 and 15,000.
Air scrubbers are vitally important in laboratories where particulate matter, bacteria and viruses can wreak havoc if they were to contaminate the atmosphere when running experiments, or could potentially infiltrate the chemical compounds. Our high powered air scrubbers contain HEPA air filters, which have the ability to clean the air by removing very small particles, including dust, dirt, pollen, odors, bacteria and germs, so that they do not accidentally contaminate work areas, experiments and chemical compounds, and you can rest easy knowing out air filters have the ability to clean up to 800 cubic feet of air per minute.
Our explosion proof blower fans can be connected to hoods or other laboratory equipment in order to remove hazardous, ignitable or explosive dust, chemical fumes and particulate matter from the work surface or experiment area. These durable blowers can be connected to air ducts, or they can be connected to large drums for easy disposal of the particulate matter. These fans have CFMs up to 5,000.
Excessive humidity can quickly wreak havoc on experiments and chemical compounds by allowing organic material, like bacteria, viruses and mold to flourish. Our line of laboratory dehumidifiers can quickly remove excess moisture from the air in your laboratory so that you can maintain your desired humidity levels in order to prevent the growth of unwanted organic material and complete your experiments and vital projects unhindered. Our dehumidifiers have the ability to filter up to 400 CFM per minute and have water capacities between 150 and 225 pints.
Chemical fumes, smoke, exhaust fumes or fumes created by certain laboratory experiment and processes can quickly overwhelm an area if they are not dealt with in a timely manner. Our stationary and portable fume extractors can help you control fumes and odors. Our stationary fume extractors can be connected to existing equipment in order to quickly remove and vent noxious fumes from the workstation. Our portable fume extractors can be used in conjunction with equipment that doesn’t always need an extractor or in case of chemical spills so that the fumes do not overwhelm the occupants of the laboratory.
Multi-Purpose Inline Duct Fans
When you need to add capacity to your existing ducted mechanical ventilation system in order to meet your required air exchanges per hours, you can count on our multi-purpose inline duct fans to get the job done. These versatile fans can be connected on the intake and exhaust sides of your air ducts in order to increase airflow and capacity throughout the system. These fans can also be mounted in any position required in order to accommodate the laboratory space. Our inline duct fans have the ability to move up to 5,000 cubic feet of air per minute.
Shutter Wall Exhaust Fans
When you have hot equipment running in your laboratory, it can greatly increase the temperature and humidity levels and decrease the air quality by pumping exhaust fumes into the air. Our explosion proof shutter wall exhaust fans and standard shutter wall exhaust fans can be inserted through walls or windows in order to vent exhaust gases and fumes in a timely manner. These fans can vent up to 55,000 cubic feet of air per minute.
