Common Houseplant Genetically Modified to Fight Air Pollution HEPA filters are commonly used in homes to filter air pollution such as pollen, pet dander, and tobacco smoke. But there are pollutants that are too small and pass right through the filter. A research team at the University of Washington have modified a common houseplant to help remove small hazardous compounds indoors. Chloroform and benzene are hazardous are two pollutants found indoors that are far too

Cleanroom Overview and Classifications Cleanrooms are typically used in scientific research and manufacturing to provide a controlled environment for handling sensitive components and samples. Depending on your specific standards, they can allow for varying levels of contaminants, such as airborne microbes, dust, particles, and chemical vapors, that are measured by the number of particles per cubic meter. Often containments are kept at low levels since they can greatly affect the application and component. Cleanrooms are

Ducted vs. Ductless Fume Hoods Ducted Fume Hood or Ductless Fume Hood? Before purchasing a fume hood there are a few variables to consider between a traditional chemical fume hood and a ductless fume hood. A traditional fume hood is generally connected to a building HVAC System and relies on this system to remove hazardous fume from the laboratory. A ductless fume hood, as the name suggests, is a fume hood that does not depend

Comments Off on How Does a Desiccator Work?
A desiccator is an air-tight enclosure that can be used in two methods. The first method is to remove moisture inside the desiccator to prevent moisture from damaging moisture sensitive samples such as electronics and chemical samples that may react to moisture. The second method is to preserve the moisture level inside the chamber and protecting a biological and carbon dating samples. Here at Cleatech, we specialize in Dry Box Desiccators Manufacturing that meet the
