Walk-in fume hoods, or enclosures, are designed to isolate a work process within a larger workspace so as to not cross contaminate between various applications. These enclosures are the ideal way to remove fumes, dust, vapors, and odors generated from oversized machinery or applications that are too large for benchtop fume extraction solutions. Additionally, walk-in fume hood enclosures can be designed to create mini “cleanroom” environments for applications that are more sensitive to ambient dust and particulate.
While Sentry Air Walk-in Enclosures have several customizable features, the traditional design includes four structural supports, clear panel curtain walls, and a ceiling panel with mounted ductless air filtration units.
The curtained wall doubles as the entrance and exit to the enclosure as well as acting as a barrier surrounding the enclosure. The structural supports maintain the integrity of the enclosure while supporting the weight of the ceiling panel and filtration units. The filtration units utilize powerful fans to create negative pressure that then pulls fume, dust, and vapor from within the enclosure into the units’ filter chamber before exhausting cleansed air back into the ambient room.A mini “cleanroom” environment can be created within the enclosure by utilizing positive-pressure filtration units atop the ceiling panel. In this scenario, ambient air is pulled into the units’ filter chamber where dust and particulate are captured (99.97% down to 0.3 microns) before exhausting cleansed air into the enclosure work area.
Economic Room Enclosure Solution. The costly expense of adding fully enclosed rooms for single-purpose applications makes utilizing a walk-in enclosure an excellent, economical solution for creating a separate “clean” or “dirty” workspace within a larger room.
Customizable. Your work processes and space requirements are unique, which is why Sentry Air Walk-in Fume Enclosures are fully customizable. In addition to custom size dimensions*, the modular design of our walk-in enclosures allows flexibility between ductless or ducted fume exhaust. Additional custom options and accessories include: Floor mounting, Clear Anti-Static Vinyl Strip Curtains, a Floor Panel made of High Density Polyethylene, Multiple Filter Units, Exhaust Collars for Ductwork, Quick-change Pre-Filters, and Remote Control Operation.
