Mycron Air Tech in Chennai presents a Laminar Air flow cabinet fabricated with MS/GI powder coated, stainless steel 304 / 316 grade and plywood box. It is a carefully enclosed bench designed to prevent contamination of semiconductor wafers, biological samples, or any particle sensitive materials.
Mycron Lab Equipment Suppliers Company Air is drawn through a HEPA filter and blown in a very smooth, laminar flow towards the user. The cabinet is usually made of Wood, MS/GI Powder Coated and stainless steel (grade 304/316). Such hoods exist in horizontal, vertical and ceiling suspended configurations. Laminar flow cabinets may have a UV Lamp to sterilize the interior and contents before usage to prevent contamination of experiment.
UV lamps are usually kept on for 15 minutes to sterilize the interior and no contact is to be made with a laminar flow hood during this time. During this time, scientists normally prepare other materials to maximize efficiency. It is important to switch this light off during use, to limit exposure to skin and eyes as stray ultraviolet light emissions can cause cancer and cataracts.
