Key Objectives

Production Manager Ian Hagley approached Monmouth in mid 2017 in search of a solution to guarantee a highly clean environment within which to mix the chemicals used in the process of producing dental cores for root canal treatments. Having previously only manufactured the plastic central component used in the process, Polymermedics moved to expand the firm’s competencies and bring the entire process in-house.

Our Solution

Circulaire® PRO Filtration Fume Cabinets with Visionaire® Touchscreen.

Our experienced team identified the Circulaire® PRO Filtration Fume Cabinet as the ideal solution to meet the needs of the Polymermedics’ technicians. Four 1100mm wide units were installed into the company’s new, purpose built cleanroom, each unit being utilised for a specific area of the manufacturing process.

The Circulaire® CT PRO Filtration Fume Cabinets feature the very latest in air filtration technology including an automatic, sliding safety sash, advanced Visionaire® Touchscreen Control System and Eco-Operation mode able to run at just 30 watts.

The units are fitted with ultra-deep Activated Carbon filters to guarantee maximum fume filtration efficiency. Air is initial drawn in from the laboratory before passing through the Carbon Filters, removing all contaminated particles from the process of mixing the chemicals and recirculating clean air back in the working environment ensuring the safety of Polymermedics staff.

PIN controlled supervisor settings and mutable alarms ensure that the system integrates seamlessly into the laboratory environment.

“The cabinets guarantee us the protection we require when handling potentially hazardous chemicals.

Monmouth have designed really superb, user friendly and efficient solutions for our specific needs.”
