Downdraft Fingerprint Powder Workstation
for applying fingerprint powder to evidence safely and cleanly
Are you and your work area covered in dusting powder? Poor lighting? It's unsafe and unclean.
The POWDERado is an innovative solution.
Working with fingerprint powders releases fine particulate dust into the working environment, which should not be inhaled.
POWDERado SH131 is a workstation which contributes to the health and safety at a fingerprint expert’s workplace.
It provides an automated filter system, entirely independent from on-site ventilation. It is a perfect alternative to conventional fume hoods.
The working surface of POWDERado SH131 is made from non-magnetic stainless steel. Below the working surface a combination of a pre-filter fleece and a fine particulate dust cassette H13 is used. The pre-filter keeps bigger dust particles off the H13 cassette and thus reduces the frequency of filter cassette replacement. The running costs remain low.
POWDERado SH131 is operated via a touch panel display to control the fan speed as well as the various illumination options.
POWDERado SH131 features a microcontroller system which offers a manual as well as an automatic mode. The fan automatically starts at low speed and the incident white illumination is switched on if any of the flaps is opened. If required, every 4 hours a short cleaning cycle can be run, which ensures that also fine dust particles, which only settle after a while, are removed from the air inside POWDERado SH131.
The system can be used as a desktop instrument but also with an optional wheeled trolley or an electrically height adjustable pillar stand. It can also be fitted with a fixing frame for all of your lights and cameras.
