Edker Industries, Inc. purchased a Model 400 Welding Fume Extractor for use when welding stainless steel.
"Last summer, OSHA placed an air sampling device on our employee while he was welding stainless steel. It was a relief when the results came back 'None Detected' for Chromium VI and Chromic acid. The fines from one incident would have probably been more than the cost of the Sentry Air filtration unit. Obviously it was money well spent. Not only from the savings on possible fines but also the appreciation from employees when they know we care enough about their health and safety to purchase top notch safety equipment."

"We are currently using the hoods [18" Wide Portable Clean Room Hoods] in Veterinary and Physician offices to separate stem cells from fat tissue. The doctors need something that is portable, light weight and requires minimal space. The Sentry Air Systems portable cleanroom hood allows us to ensure sterility of the samples we produce."
Stemlogix is a regenerative medicine company committed to providing Veterinarians with the ability to deliver the most viable and potent stem cell therapy possible to dogs, cats and horses at the point-of-care.
"My business is the design and assembly of ultra high quality XEIT brand anamorphic cinema projection lenses. One of the critical quality benchmarks is to keep microscopic dust contamination of internal surfaces to a minimum.
As I could not justify, and did not need a full "clean room", I picked a Sentry Air SS-324-PCR (24" model) to provide the "clean" environment I needed, where I needed it. My lens assembly has been designed so that once it is assembled and sealed it can be removed from the clean bench-top area and calibrated in a normal room atmosphere, secure in the knowledge that the assembly sealed inside the SS-324-PCR, will remain internally dust-free.
Lastly, the SS-324-PCR is light enough and small enough to pack inside an ordinary SUV for transport to any new workshop location that I may relocate to in the future. It is easy to assemble, clean and remarkably sturdy in construction: an eminently practical solution, where space and cost considerations do not permit a full "clean room" set-up.
I have not seen another unit like the SS-324-PCR anywhere, from any manufacturer, that incorporates such light weight, easy access, portability and reasonable cost. I have had great success with the SS-324-PCR and commend Sentry air for their product, their prompt service, and their product support."
"I am using the Sentry Air unit to conduct tissue extraction in an outdoor field setting. I work with a very powerful fixative solution that I use when I extract brain tissue, and the unit has proven to be both protective and efficient in containing the chemical within the hood. The system is also portable and easy to move, which has proven to be of great importance as I move between field sites frequently. Assembly and disassembly is very simple, and the unit has proven to fit my needs as a molecular biologist working outdoors under a variety of conditions, be it changing weather or terrain. I would highly recommend this fume hood to any biologist or chemist that requires protection and portability, as it has proven to be both durable and reliable."

"I have a busy laser practice in Maryland and have been using the Sentry plume extractor for nearly two years. The unit is quiet and efficient. The HEPA filter assures me that we are using the most advanced technology available to ensure patient and staff safety. I highly recommend this unit for any medical practice that desires worry free performance as an adjunct to their laser procedures."
