Wet Scrubber Fume Cupboards

Corrosion Resistance Guaranteed

Wet scrubber fume cupboards increase user safety and reduce toxic chemical emissions. They achieve this by cleaning polluted air using a scrubbing solution before it's exhausted into the atmosphere. Scrubbed fume cupboards are a good option for facilities using high volumes of chemicals like hydrofluoric acid. The vapour produced from heating these chemicals creates highly corrosive environments, so the cabinets are usually manufactured from polypropylene.

At TION Global, we manufacture our products using 100% medical-grade welded polypropylene. This corrosion-proof material extends the average life of our units by up to ten years. Combine this with our integrated scrubbing system and auto-dosing technology, and you are guaranteed a product that's built to last.

Reducing Your Environmental Impact

Scrubbed fume cupboards prevent hazardous fumes and particles from escaping into the environment. Significantly reducing the untreated chemical wastage produced by laboratories and manufacturing facilities. Our cabinets capture chemical vapours using a media mist within the airstream before neutralising the substance inside a treated recirculation tank.

This technology conforms to modern environmental practices and reinforces safe working procedures and ethical thinking. Our scrubbing efficiency typically exceeds 99% of chemical concentrations. Helping organisations track their annual emissions and operate in accordance with their ESG policy.

Integrated Wet Scrubber

Cupboard mounted scrubber system removes harmful vapours, gases and particulates from the airstream.

Wet Scrubber Internal System

How It Works

The TION scrubbing system uses a bed of 3D shapes called pall rings. These rings are sprayed with a fine mist of water and caustic soda. The pall rings give maximum surface area for fumes to adhere to as the exhaust air passes through them. A water tank underneath the work surface recirculates the media and has an auto top-up of fresh water.

Auto-Dosing Option

Auto-Dosing Option

Ability to add caustic soda to the scrubbing system to reduce the need for manual top ups.

Scrubbing System

Adding caustic soda into the fume cupboard's water tank neutralises harmful toxins captured via the sprinklers and scrubbing media. Auto-dosing removes the need for manual top-ups, ensuring your scrubbing system operates at maximum efficiency.

Optional pH Monitoring

Optional pH Monitoring

Real-time monitoring of scrubber tanks to ensure contents is pH neutral before disposal.

Waste Management

Chemical waste should be disposed of carefully.

Our solution ensures your pH level is accurate, consistent and reliable. As a rule, you should always aim for 7pH before disposal. However, you may find your organisation already has a robust disposal procedure in place. Always check with the appropriate authority first.

Construction

The ideal material for constructing fume cupboards is polypropylene. In this case, virgin medical grade welded polypropylene. It offers a much higher chemical resistance than other materials. We also manufacture steel fume cabinets, but the shelf life is considerably shorter.

Confused about which worksurface you need? We offer the following:

  • Polypropylene
  • Trespa
  • Ceramic
  • Stainless Steel

Typically, we would only recommend polypropylene on a wet scrubber fume cupboard thanks to its corrosion-proof properties. However, we understand that our customer's requirements vary. If you have a question regarding the options listed above, contact our technical support team for more information.

Intuitive User Interface

Intuitive User Interface

All controls in are one place with our user-friendly interface, intuitive calibration, and night setback mode.

Control Panel

9" Digital Control Panel

Our upgradable 9" digital control panel is touch-screen ready, creating a seamless user experience. The programmable software tracks air inflow and downflow, annual commissioning dates and filter replacements. It's also equipped with a state-of-the-art red-light alarm system. This vital safety function visually notifies the operator if an airflow drop is detected.

When used with our energy-efficient VAV (Variable Air Volume) technology, it also notifies the user of a sash height readjustment. In short, it conserves energy, increases user safety and creates a hassle-free working environment.

Five Things to Consider Before Purchasing a Ducted Fume Cupboard
Fume Cupboard Service Package
A fume cupboard (or fume hood) is a piece of laboratory equipment designed to contain gases, particulates and vapours from being airborne. A scrubbed fume cupboard (also called a wet scrubber fume cupboard) reduces chemical emissions by cleaning polluted air before it's exhausted into the atmosphere.
A scrubbed fume cupboard works by capturing chemical vapours using a fine media mist within the airstream before neutralising the substance inside a treated recirculation tank. This air is then exhausted into the atmosphere using a ventilation stack connected to the building.
Wet-Scrubber Fume Cupboards neutralise toxic vapours from the airstream before exhausting them into the environment. Wash-Down Fume Cupboards prevent Perchloric acid crystallisation using water jets fitted behind the rear baffle plate and the first section of ducting. TION specialise in both cabinet types, with each range support by a team of qualified engineers.
No. Although scrubbed fume cupboards are designed for use with strong, acidic chemicals, there are some exceptions. For example, Perchloric acid vapours can crystallise inside the unit or duct when dry. In this instance, we would only recommend a wash-down fume cupboard.

Tion are happy to advise you on any chemicals you may be using, and the impact they may have on your future fume cupboard use.

A scrubbed fume cupboard can take between three to seven days (or longer) to install, depending on the complexity of your project and whether the cupboard is ducted or not. This time varies because we need to consider your ventilation requirements, building specifications and make-up air. However, you can expedite this process if you have a thorough specification brief detailing your needs.
Scrubbed fume cupboards typically cost between £11,000 to £20,000, depending on the specification and size of the unit. Unlike traditional mild steel fume hoods that rust and corrode easily, we manufacture our products using corrosion-proof polypropylene. This material extends the average lifespan of our products by up to 10 years, thus saving you money considerably in the long term.
