Biological Safety Cabinet With Improved Air Flow

View page
US Patent:
RE40276, Apr 29, 2008
Filed:
Mar 15, 2004
Appl. No.:
10/800357
Inventors:
Jim Hunter - Overland Park KS,
Kevin Gilkison - Overland Park KS,
Larry Nelson - Kingsville MO,
Burt Rhea - Overland Park KS,
Jerry O'Dell - Independence MO,
Greg Krueger - Trimble MO,
Gary Roepke - Kansas City MO,
Gerhard W. Knutson - Edina MN,
Mary Ellen Kennedy - Ashton,
Assignee:
Labconco Corporation - Kansas City MO
International Classification:
B08B 15/02
US Classification:
454 58, 454 57, 312209
Abstract:
A biological safety cabinet is provided that includes a frame. The frame defines a protected work area and encloses the work area on all but one side. A sash is coupled to the frame that at least partially encloses the side that is not enclosed by the frame. A blower is coupled to the frame generally above the work area. The blower is adapted to circulate air through the work area to make the work area a negative pressure area so that harmful materials are confined. A sash grill is coupled to the frame generally below the sash that has a curved top surface. The curved sash grill provides a superior and less turbulent air-flow into the work area, thereby better containing any harmful materials. The curved sash grill is perforated, and the curvature and perforations of the sash grill compensate for partial blockage by such things as the user's arms and other objects. The curvature of the sash grill also avoids a sharp angle at the same height as the work surface which reduces the chance of contact and possible breakage of labware as it is moved into the cabinet.
