OVERVIEW
AirClean® Systems PowderSafe™ Type
A enclosures are designed to provide
operator protection from compounds or
fumes with low to intermediate toxicity. Type
A enclosures provide balanced negative
pressure at the face of the enclosure to
minimize operator exposure. The Type
A enclosure incorporates a combination
of pre-filtration and HEPA filtration, when
dealing with powders, and a combination
of pre-filtration and bonded carbon filtration
when dealing with fumes. Type A enclosures
should not be used with high toxicity or
unknown compounds.
AIRFLOW PATTERN
1) Laminar flow room air enters enclosure at “A”.
2) Air moves evenly through enclosure at “B” while capturing any
particulate or fumes.
3) Clean air is exhausted at “C” after passing through pre-filtration
and HEPA filtration or pre-filtration and bonded carbon filtration.
