RFC Recirculating Fume Cabinet

    Suitable for benchtop use
    Supplied with a stainless-steel work tray
    Protects laboratory staff and the environment from toxic vapours, gases, fumes and particles

The RFC Recirculating Fume Cabinet is suitable for benchtop use and supplied with a stainless-steel work tray. When supplied without the work tray, the cabinet may be installed over a sink or an item of equipment. RFC cabinets can be supplied with a special trolley or stand which allows a separate trolley to be wheeled into the containment enclosure. The mobility of trolley-mounted RFC cabinets is a significant advantage in hospitals or large research institutions, where materials such as glutaraldehyde are handled at multiple locations. These applications include endoscope sterilisation.

The RFC cabinet has an inward air velocity that is maintained at > 0.5 m/s ±20% for both benchtop and trolley-mounted installations. In most applications, filtered exhaust air may be discharged to the room. This avoids the air supply system problems that arise with ducted cabinets. In special cases, where the nature or concentration of the contaminant indicates, the cabinet exhaust may be connected to an exhaust fan/duct system that discharges to atmosphere.

RFC Recirculating cabinets are produced in two (2) sizes, with 900 or 1200 mm nominal work zone width. Custom sizes are available to order.

RFC cabinets are available with Activated Carbon Media, Alumina or a blend of media tuned to deal with the contaminants that will be produced during use. HEPA Filters can be added to the exhaust of the RFC to allow for capture of particulates.

The RFC Recirculating Fume Cabinet is produced in accordance with AS 2243.9 and can be validated by a NATA registered laboratory
