Sentry Air Systems, Inc. is a privately-owned, Houston-based manufacturer of fume extraction and air purification systems.
Our line of Ductless Fume Hoods capture fume and particulate at the source of emission, before they can enter the operator’s breathing zone. This is especially important in forensic labs and law enforcement facilities where unknown or illegal substances are being tested and handled for analysis.
If specialized equipment or weapons must be cleaned with solvents, a fume hood or benchtop fume extractor can be used and easily fits in an office setting.
To protect evidence from contamination, our Portable Clean Rooms Hoods (PCRs) filter the air before it enters the hood to provide an ISO Class 5 environment. The smallest PCR takes up little more than 1 square foot of countertop, a useful footprint for many mobile forensics units. Our 40-inch-wide model provides over 13 cubic feet of space for the testing or storage of evidence. PCRs are also useful for digital analysts who must open hard drives knowing even a speck of dust may permanently damage it.
In pathology labs, our Portable and Mounted units draw fumes from preservatives like formaldehyde into specialty-blended chemical filters that reduce fume circulation. Because these units have flexible air intake hoses and can be mounted on walls or rolled around the lab, they integrate easily with existing equipment and work flows.
