Horizontal Laminar Flow Benches
Horizontal laminar flow hoods from NCI are available either as class 100 (ISO 5) or class 10 (ISO 4) working environments. The filter is mounted vertically at the rear of the workzone and air flows outward towards the operator at about 1 mph (90 ft/min).
Applications include assembly or inspection of critical parts for optics, semiconductor, pharmaceutical, or medical device. These horizontal flow cleanbenches are offered in a wide range of sizes and styles. They are available in single units of 3,4,5,6, and 8 feet long. Hoods can by aligned to form a continuous work station 20-30 feet long if needed. The work zone height can be 24", 30", 36" or 48" in height.
They can be free standing with or without a built-in work surface. The model 303 does not have an attached work surface and works great for several specialized applications. A separate table offers a vibration free set up for high resolution microscope work. The hood can also be place around a machine to provide a small cost effective cleanroom.
Smaller models are available for setting on a table or counter. A special non outgassing model is available for working with highly sensitive lens or mirrors.
