Thanks to its generously proportioned active-carbon air recirculation system, the GrossPath Special Worktable is ready for immediate use – no need for installing a costly separate air ventilation system! As a result, a customer’ supplied ventilation is not necessary which can reduce investment costs considerably and even overheads by up to 30 %. Contaminated air is not only vacuumed downwards but also backwards throughout the entire working area. The large permanganate carbon filter intercepts, filters and purifies efficiently contaminated air and directs the clean air back to the laboratory. This prevents that contaminated air rises and is being taken up by the employees of the laboratory. – for optimized removal of any health-hazardous vapors. Formalin concentrations will even be significantly below the maximum allowable concentrations (MAC) throughout the entire extraction zone.

Additionally, the GrossPath has a soundproofed exhaust fan that substantially keeps the noise level to a minimum. Moreover, the tables are even being delivered ready for use. Hence, laboratory processes are not disturbed or even interrupted by expensive installation work.

Thanks to its large permanganate carbon filter, the table can be in use for up to 800 working hours* - which reduces operating costs even further. The filter can be easily replaced by means of an inspection hole in the table’s substructure.

* operating time varies between 600 and 800 working hours
