Fume Containment Specialist Launches Energy Efficient Forensic Cabinets and Downflow BenchesJul 09, 2012
An experienced designer of fume containment systems and forensic cabinets has announced the launch of Fumecare Limited, a new company that has entered the market with an extensive array of evidence drying cabinets, cyanoacrylate fingerprinting chambers and downflow benches.
The company was launched this year by John Haugh, whose work in the field of industrial and laboratory containment systems began in the 1990s when he became a director of the British fume hood manufacturer, Semper Products. More recently, he worked as an independent design consultant, handling sales and new product development projects for international manufacturers of fume containment systems.
The new company will design, supply, install and maintain a full range of products, many of which have already been specified and purchased by clients throughout the world. In the short time since its formal launch, Fumecare has produced forensic cabinets for law enforcement organizations in the United States, bespoke workstations for a large engineering client in Hong Kong and a number of filtration fume hoods and downflow benches for clients operating in the law enforcement, healthcare and industrial sectors.
Explaining the rationale for the new business, John Haugh says, “The intention behind the launch of Fumecare was to offer customers a comprehensive package that covered everything from bespoke design and manufacture to the supply of ‘off the shelf’ products and support services such as installation, repair and maintenance.
“Many of the old Semper Products systems that we produced nearly 20 years ago are still going strong and there is still a healthy demand for a specialist contractor that can service them properly. As a company, we can certainly do that, but we can also maintain other manufacturers’ systems and, where necessary design and install upgrades for them."
Fumecare specializes in recirculatory systems that do not require the construction of ducts or the use of air handling and extraction systems. As a result, its products can be installed very quickly, with minimal disruption to working routines, and can even be set up as mobile units where required. Moreover, because they are not required to move large volumes of air, they tend to be much more energy efficient than ducted systems and can yield a corresponding saving in operating costs.
