Portable Fume Cabinets LFC
Capture of fumes is achieved by inward airflow at a velocity of > 0.5 m/s and air is moved upward through carbon filters that can be specifically tuned to suit the application. The carbon filters scrub the contaminated air and recirculate clean air within the laboratory. The standard activated carbon filter is suitable for use with a wide range of common laboratory fumes.
The LFC Portable Fume cabinets are available in three widths; 600mm (LFC60), 900mm (LFC90) and 1200mm (LFC120). An optional work tray, manufactured from polypropylene, is available if containment of spills is required. A trolley stand is also available across the LFC cabinet range.
We understand that every laboratory is different, so the LFC Portable Fume Cabinet is available with various filters. The standard activated-carbon filter is suitable for use with a wide range of common laboratory fumes. Special-purpose carbon filters for specific applications are available to order. Specially tuned Activated Carbon or Activated Alumina can be used along with a combined HEPA filter on the exhaust outlet depending on the designed use for the LFC.

- Where are the clean air cabinets supplied by Thermoline manufactured?
- All of the cabinets we supply are Australian Made by AES Environmental. AES has several manufacturing locations in Australia, and all of the Laminar Flow and High-Efficiency Filtration products are produced in their Minto, NSW facility.
- What is fume cupboard used for?
- Fume cupboards are used widely in laboratories and are designed to capture and remove airborne hazardous substances generated during laboratory experiments (e.g. gases, vapours, aerosols, biohazards and particulates/dust).
- Can Thermoline arrange installation and commissioning of my cabinet?
- Yes. Our suppliers have service divisions in most Australian states and territories and relies on qualified partners for other geographical locations. Each team is capable of providing on-site installation and NATA certification.
- What is a carbon filter used for in laboratory fume cabinets?
The primary function of a carbon filter in a laboratory fume cabinet is to adsorb and remove volatile organic compounds (VOCs) and other harmful chemicals that may be released into the air. Carbon filters typically contain activated carbon, a highly porous form of carbon with a large surface area. The large surface area of activated carbon allows it to adsorb a wide range of chemicals from the air, including VOCs, odours, and gases.
The carbon filter in a laboratory fume cabinet is usually located in the exhaust system, which removes chemicals from the air before it is exhausted to the outside environment. This helps to minimise the risk of exposure to hazardous chemicals for both the user and the environment.
