Providing Safety and Efficiency: Kalstein Line Biosafety Equipment

Biosafety is a fundamental concern in any laboratory, from those involved in academic research to medical and clinical laboratories. To provide this crucial safety, it is essential to have high quality and reliable equipment such as Kalstein’s biosafety hoods and cabinets.

Kalstein’s line of biosafety hoods and cabinets provide effective and safe solutions for the laboratory environment, thanks to their superior technical features and careful engineering.

Essential Technical Features of Biosafety Cabinets and Hoods 

Renowned for their precision and reliability, Kalstein’s biosafety fume hoods and cabinets are acid- and alkali-resistant laboratory fume hoods designed to optimize laboratory operations. Models YR05817 to YR05819 stand out for having a work surface at a height of 800mm, allowing user comfort. In addition, the maximum window opening of 750mm and the air velocity or exhaust air volume of 0.4-0.6 m/s, 800-1000 m³/h ensure a safe environment for experiments, reducing exposure to hazardous conditions.

These models incorporate an axial flow blower and a 5mm tempered glass front window, adjustable in height. This type of glass ensures durability and resistance to temperature changes. These features, together with a noise level of less than or equal to 60dB and a 10W lamp, provide comfortable and safe working environments.

Models YR05869 to YR05871: Refined Features for State-of-the-Art Laboratories

Models YR05869 to YR05871 are defined by face velocity of 0.4-0.6m/s and an airflow of 1080-1700m3/h. These result in higher efficiency of air purification operations. The low noise level of less than 60dB, combined with AC220V-380V/0.09-4kw electrical variation, offers energy efficient performance.

Model YR0090-A: A Standard for Cleanliness and Biosafety

Kalstein’s Category II-A2 biosafety cabinet YR0090-A stands out for its outstanding cleanliness, rated Class 100@≥0.5μm (U.S. Federal 209E). This grade denotes the presence of as few as 100 particles of 0.5 microns or greater per cubic foot of air. In addition, the number of colonies is less than or equal to 0.5pcs/plate-hour, ensuring a contamination-free workplace.

The average wind speed, both inside the door, middle, and inside, as well as the front suction, ensure a constant and safe air flow. This, together with a noise level of less than or equal to 65dB(A) and an average peak vibration of ≤5μm, creates a quiet and stable working environment, ideal for laboratories.

Efficiency and Safety in the YR0090B-SS to YR0090E-SS II-A2 Cabinet YR0090B-SS

The YR0090B-SS to YR0090E-SS models come with a rotational voltage of 220V and a frequency of 50HZ, providing stable and consistent performance. The variant of rated power between 1100W and 1800W, as well as the total exhaust system ranging from 360M3/h to 500m3/h, ensure efficient removal of pollutants.

These models also incorporate UV lamp power from 30 to 40W and fluorescent lamps from 12W*2 to 16W*2, which assists in the clear visualization of the work performed in the booth. The average downwind and suction velocity ensure a constant airflow to maintain a clean and safe working environment.
