AirClean Systems launches new Patriot ductless fume hoods

Patriot Ductless Fume HoodsAirClean Systems, the North American leader in ductless containment since 1992, announces the introduction of its newest product line: Patriot Ductless Fume Hoods. Patriot ductless hoods incorporate much of the advanced technology of AirClean's Independence fume hood with the cost effective backbone of AirClean's AC4000 folding and sliding-sash ductless fume hoods. 

Patriot ductless fume hoods feature the easy-to-use AirSafeTM TOUCH automatic safety controller for added operator safety. This color touchscreen controller automatically increases or decreases blower speed to maintain the user's pre-set face velocity, ensuring airflow is within standard operating parameters. The current face velocity is displayed at all times. AirSafe TOUCH also monitors the bonded carbon filtration bed, alerting the user audibly and visually should filter saturation occur. Patriot features a unique ‘application confirmation' sequence that is required with every use of the hood. AirSafe TOUCH displays the approved chemical class for the hood, and waits for a confirmation from the user before allowing the hood to be used. 

In addition to safety features, AirSafe TOUCH also provides a multi-language and multi-unit capability not found in most ductless hoods. With the press of a button, users can switch the controller language between English, Spanish, French and German. Airflow can be displayed in both linear feet per minute (LFM) and meters per second (m/s).

Patriot ductless hoods eliminate the need for costly installation, ductwork and over-built HVAC systems associated with traditional fume hood use within the laboratory. An on-board energy meter, accessed via AirSafe TOUCH, displays the real-time and life-time energy use of the hood.

AirClean Systems' unique bonded carbon filtration is standard on all Patriot ductless fume hoods. For added application breadth and capacity, SilconazyneTM filtration is also available for Patriot. 

Patriot's rolled-entry design combined with AirZoneTM baffling provides laminar flow within the cabinet, preventing eddy currents and keeping fumes or particulate from escaping the hood. Seamless, thermally welded polypropylene construction means the Patriot will never rust, providing years of service life. All electronics and blowers are post-filter, so they are never exposed to chemicals used in the hood.

All AirClean Systems ductless fume hoods are made in the USA and ship fully assembled, requiring very minimal installation. Simply place on a cabinet, stand or benchtop and plug into a standard 110V or 220V outlet. The Patriot ductless fume hood can be installed and used within minutes of being removed from its shipping container.

Patriot ductless fume hoods will be available beginning in August. Folding sash models are initially available in 36" and 48" widths, and sliding sash models are initially available in 48" and 72" widths.
