Fume Extraction For The Labs Industry

Our Purex machines can protect operators from harmful fumes and chemicals used in Medical treatments or cleaning processes. 

From performing research, developing new treatments and disinfecting equipment, labs and lab technicians are crucial to our medical industry. At Purex, our fume extraction systems efficiently remove hazardous fumes that are produced during labatory tests and treatments. Learn how our fume extractors can support your lab processes:

Typical applications

Decontamination

Ozone (O₃) has various applications throughout the medical industry, including wound healing, sterilization, and water purification. However, it’s most commonly used in labs as a powerful disinfectant. Excessive exposure to Ozone can cause shortness of breath, induce chest pains and even damage lung tissue. That’s why we created a fume extraction system specifically designed to combat Ozone exposure and protect lab technicians. 

Clinical Research

Often used as a perseverative, Formalin, also known as formaldehyde solution, is used is commonly used in medical laboratories. However, even small amounts of formaldehyde fumes can cause irritation to the eyes, nose and throat. Long-term exposure can be highly hazardous, causing severe coughing or even choking. That’s why its crucial that labs are equipped with effective fume extraction systems to ensure the health and safety of their workers.
