Laminar flow workstations are designed for non-hazardous work like mechanical and processing duties. These industrial workbenches provide a clean air environment that is suitable for testing, laboratory work, inspection, manufacturing, or pharmaceutical environments. Clean, HEPA-filtered air flows over the work area, protecting the items being used.
Industrial workbenches that feature energy-efficient HEPA units reduce ongoing electricity costs. Fans may have speed control options, allowing the user to regulate the amount of air supplied to the industrial benches. High-efficiency HEPA filters are proven 99.99 percent efficient with 0.3 micro particles. Pre-filters that can be snapped into place make maintenance and replacement much easier.
Fans included in these work benches should be quiet so as not to distract the user. A 50 dBA fan is extremely quiet, making it perfect for this environment. Installing thick acrylic panels on the rear and sides of an industrial workbench seals the perimeter and an air flow shield adds to the efficiency. With a teardrop shaped, sealed fluorescent light fixture, the area is illuminated without creating an additional place for particulates to gather.
These industrial workbenches are usually compatible with 115v of power and cords can be plugged into a standard 20A duplex outlet. They come in several standard sizes but manufacturers can also specify custom dimensions including the height of the work surface. Top options include surfaces with features like chemical resistance and ESD/static control. Cleanroom and heavy manufacturing styles of work benches can also be found. Optional accessories include drawers, cabinets, bin panels, and power strips.
Being able to customize industrial workbenches ensures that this furniture meets the needs of the work environment. Laminar flow industrial benches provide a steady flow of particulate-free air. Quiet fan operation, variable fan speed, an assortment of work surface materials, and customized dimensions are just a few of the personalization options offered by some manufacturers.
