Thermo Fisher Scientific Introduces Two New Energy-Efficient, Safe Fume Hoods
- Mar 1, 2010
New Fume Hoods Feature Directed Air Technology
ORLANDO, Fla. – Thermo Fisher Scientific Inc., the world leader in serving science, today launched two new fume hood lines, the Hamilton* Infinity* and the Hamilton* Advantage* fume hoods. With enhanced ergonomics for user comfort, these laboratory hoods address the ever-increasing requirements for safety, energy efficiency and aesthetics. This innovative new range of fume hoods can save on operating costs while maintaining user safety and achieving environmental goals. The company will showcase the Hamilton Infinity and Advantage fume hoods at Thermo Scientific booth 2757 during Pittcon 2010, being held February 28 - March 5, in Orlando.
The Hamilton Infinity and Advantage fume hoods incorporate unique “directed air technology.” This technology provides an airflow purge of the interior sidewall to enhance fume hood performance. The Infinity series features GreenFumeHood* technology that utilizes Neutrodine® filters in place of traditional carbon filters to essentially eliminate atmospheric pollution from the exhaust, minimizing associated building infrastructure and dramatically reducing energy consumption. Complete user assurance and filter replacement is provided via the Microsoft gGuard Communications* package, which offers real-time remote management capabilities.
With low-voltage LED lighting, minimal exhaust static pressure and variable air volume (VAV) compatibility to minimize exhaust air when the sash is down, Hamilton Advantage fume hoods provide energy-efficient hazard containment. A full-height slanted front viewing area and side viewing panels enable simple and easy monitoring of precious samples, while a flush sill enhances safety by eliminating possible glassware tripping hazards. In addition, AutoSash® technology maximizes laboratory safety by ensuring correct sash positioning. An additional trough is positioned at the front of the unit to catch any spills.
The Thermo Scientific Hamilton Infinity and Advantage fume hoods are highly ergonomic, with advanced safety and energy-saving features that make them ideal for virtually any laboratory.
