What is a Filtration Fume Cupboard?
A Filtration Fume Cupboard, also known as a Non-Ducted or Recirculating Fume Cabinet, has a sole purpose of protecting an operator from both chemical vapour and particulates. The system incorporates efficient carbon filters for fume removal and/or HEPA filters for particulates.
Unlike a Ducted system, the cabinets do not vent conditioned air to atmosphere, instead the filters purify the air before safely recirculating it back in to the laboratory. As a result, this reduces energy consumption and expenditure.
How can a Fume Cupboard be used?
Within typical Labs, a Filtration Fume Cupboard fitted with Carbon Filters can be used to protect an operator from Acetone fumes during a cleaning process. Another example is a Fume Cupboard fitted with HEPA Filters, this can be used to protect an operator from Asbestos particles when working with a Microscope.

The Circulaire® range of filtration fume cupboards incorporates the latest in containment technology to provide full compliance with COSHH regulations and containment of both fumes and/or particulate (depending upon choice of filters).
The range is available in 7 standard sizes with filters to suit all applications and fully meeting the requirements of international standards. In order to be able to achieve this quality, the systems are designed and manufactured by Monmouth Scientific in the UK by the most experienced team of engineers possible.
Two types of system are available, the BRAND NEW world leading Circulaire® cupboards with Visionaire® full colour touch screen control system and low noise & low energy and the Circulaire® cupboards with low airflow alarms.
Monmouth's own design engineers ensure all systems are fully compliant with COSHH regulations and international standards including BS7989:2001 for filtration fume/particulate cupboards and BS7258 for ducted fume cupboards. During manufacture, every aspect of the cupboard, from the electrics to the metalwork, is meticulously checked and monitored to ensure optimal operation and safety is achieved.
All Monmouth Circulaire® cupboards employ extra large capacity activated carbon filters for removal of fumes and/or HEPA filters for particulate removal. The filters are up to 30% bigger than that of rival cabinets and also significantly deeper making fume removal more efficient, effective and therefore safer.
