New Aircomp200 Compressed air generator dedicated to the laboratory
New Aircomp200
Compressed air generator dedicated to the laboratory AirComp is a compressed dry oil free air generator specifically designed for installation inside the laboratory. AirComp is the result of Claind's forty years experience in the development and manufacture of gas generators. We define it as a compressed air generator and not as a simple compressor because its conception comes from an idea much more closer to that of a laboratory generator instead of that of an industrial compressor. The compressed air generator is equipped with scroll oil free air compressor and with revolutionary electronic speed control . The electronic speed control allows: - increased efficiency in terms of air produced compared to electricity consumption - less engine temperature and stress resulting in longer compressor life - less maintenance (necessary only after 10,000 hours of operation, approximately 3 years Furthermore, strong attention is given to design (this it is the only compressor on the market with a strong aesthetic sense) and

CleanBoy® - How it works Spetecs clean room station
CleanBoy® - How it works
Spetecs clean room station The issue: The need for ever greater precision and sensitivity in analytical procedures means that the demands in terms of environmental conditions are becoming ever more exacting. For example, a normal laboratory atmosphere contains approximately 300,000 – 500,000 particles per cubic foot. These particles have a certain chemical composition that may invalidate ongoing research results or interfere with measurement results. They also lead to unwanted physical effects in production and research processes. One simple, cost-efficient solution is to store samples in clean room conditions. The solution: Spetec's CleanBoy® clean room station makes it possible to store samples in clean room conditions and create the optimum conditions for highly sensitive measurements in the field of elemental analysis. "CleanBoy" brings a practically particle-free atmosphere straight to any workplace where it is needed. Cleanness in the technical sense means classified clean room conditions.
