A new line of fume hoods that promises laboratory workers superior protection against buildup of toxic fumes has been combined with electrostatic dissipative features to prevent static buildup and discharge.

Aura ductless fume hoods manufactured by Mystaire Misonix (Creedmoor, NC, USA) are self-contained, filtered enclosures that remove hazardous fumes, vapors, and particles from virtually any laboratory application. Unlike traditional fume hoods, there are no installation costs and no ductwork is needed. The new Aura ESD line of hoods adds an electrostatic dissipation feature to the state-of-the art Aura line.

Each Aura ductless fume hood has advanced safety monitoring and controls including the EverSafe II microprocessor safety controller, which monitors and adjusts fume hood face velocity to a user-preset value. EverSafe II maintains face velocity at the proper rate for containment of potentially toxic gases and vapors.

The US made Aura fume hoods, which are available in 72.6 centimeter, 106.68 centimeter, and 137.16-centimeter widths have been ASHRAE (American Society of Heating, Refrigerating and Air Conditioning Engineers) 110 tested and provide excellent containment from toxic fumes and vapors. The Filtrak positive filter sealing system installed in each Aura ductless hood is a cam-driven filter sealing system with a built-in filter position indicator and an alert that informs the user if the filtration bed is not properly sealed. The Filtrak system enables safe and easy filter maintenance and replacement.
