The Gelman Synerflow Radioisotope Fume Hoods are designed to provide a high degree of personnel and environment protection from applications requiring the use of radio-chemicals in the laboratories, hospitals and industries. The hood ensures the removal of undesirable radioactive materials in the air which may be attributed to accidental spillage of radioactive liquids or release of gaseous radioactive substances while dispensing, handling, or storing of radionuclides.
Embodying advanced system-monitoring and controls technology, excellent aerodynamic designs, enhanced airflows, ergonomics and styling, Gelman Synerflow Radioisotope Fume Hoods are manufactured to the most exacting standards for safety and containment.
Each fume hood is constructed of a seamless, corrosion-resistant Type 304 stainless steel interior with an integral work surface and cupsink.
The Gelman Synerflow Radioisotope Fume Hoods maintain an average face velocity of 0.5 m/s through the work access opening.
An effective air barrier between the operator and the work chamber, maintained by an inward flow of room air into a full-width work access opening provides personnel and environment protection.
The barrier air blends with the radioactive airborne contaminants released within the work chamber and is totally exhausted to the outside atmosphere via a dedicated facility exhaust system.
All Synerflow Radioisotope Fume Hoods are fitted with a standard by-pass system which minimizes fluctuations in face velocity as the sash is raised or lowered. The by-pass is designed so that as the sash is fully raised, it is completely sealed off to provide optimum extraction through the sash opening for maximum containment. As the sash is closed, the air entering the fume hood through the sash and by-pass openings is redistributed, eliminating high velocity air streams in the near closed sash position.
