Water wash fume cupboards are built in standard configuration and have two options –

  • Mains Fed (supply)
    Mains fed water wash fume cupboards have a water front control on the service plate and dump directly to a waste connection. Extracted air passes through a knitmesh housing to remove moisture before discharging to atmosphere.
  • Recirculatory
    Recirculatory type fume cupboards work when the fume cupboard is switched on and the water is recycled via a holding tank and pump. Extracted air passes through a knitmesh housing to remove moisture before discharging to atmosphere
