The Flow Sciences Advantage

LELAND, NC, June 19, 2018 — Flow Sciences, a leading provider of containment systems for laboratory, pilot plant, and manufacturing facilities offers an unparalleled synergy of personnel and/or product protection.

What Flow Sciences is adding to the mix is cost of ownership and return on investment. By utilizing intricate engineering and design into the construction of enclosure, they are able to achieve exceptional filter life. Airfoil and interior plenum innovation allows the company to match personnel protection with minimal interior powder deposition and optimal contaminant distribution across the filter surface.

Flow Sciences’ top-mounted fan design allows the filter to last for 4 to 5 years and prevents powder “recoil” back into the enclosure. A clean workspace means no cross-contamination. All of this means less downtime and more productivity!

With the Flow Sciences Advantage, you are able to enjoy the following features:

  • Ultra-micro-level Employee Protection: Flow Sciences’ team of scientists and engineers have proven powder concentration inside the enclosure to be as low as 0.0001 µg/m3.
  • User-oriented Ergonomic Design: Go/No-Go alarm, hinged doors, and input left/output right design promotes ease of use and maximized efficiency of work.
  • Balance Stability: Flow Sciences’ exhaust system design allows for consistent balance stability up to 6-7 decimal places.
  • Reduced energy costs: Even powder-deposition onto the primary HEPA filter results in consistently lower energy costs per billing period.
  • Lower cost of ownership: 4 to 5 year filter life, 4” pleated HEPA filters, and vibration reduction on the work surface yields an exceptionally low cost of ownership.
