Gallay Medical & Scientific Pty Ltd  has launched the Captair Flex ductless fume cabinets designed for simple installation and high performance.

As a supplier of fume extraction systems, Gallay has often been asked for advice relating to ducted and ductless fume hoods.

Do ducted fume cupboards, for instance deserve their ‘energy hog’ reputation? What are the benefits of choosing ductless fume cabinets over ducted fume hoods?

Advances in carbon filtration technology enable ductless fume systems to compete in increasingly high-volume workplaces. Previously, extremely high filtration requirements necessitated externally ducted fume extraction systems.

These technological advances help environmentally-conscious laboratory managers across the country to introduce eco-friendly fume extraction systems into their facilities.

Externally ducted fume cupboards meant that air-conditioned and contaminated exhaust air was purged into the atmosphere resulting in loss of conditioned air as well as wastage of resources. 

On the other hand, a ductless fume extraction system recycles pure air throughout the workplace environment. Electricity savings are possible with ductless fume cabinets as conditioned air stays within the building.

The Captair Flex ductless laboratory fume cabinets can be easily installed by laboratory staff and do not require extensive planning or site modifications.

With the addition of the Captair ESP maintenance program, users can receive an even higher level of protection.
