The Carbon Filter Store supply replacement HEPA and Carbon Filters for re-circulatory (Ductless) Filtration Fume Cabinets, Fume Cupboards, Fume Hoods, Storage Cupboards and other clean air enclosures that use Activated Carbon to filter contaminants.
GVS contacted me to help in the development of a new fume cupboard product range. To support this, a detailed market review of competitors identified a recurring product mix of around 30 different sizes, and formed the basis of the new series of filter designs. The final product is a simple, scalable design produced in sheet metal, allowing GVS to easily expand their product catalogue and meet the requirements of 90% of typical applications.
Computer aided design (CAD)
Rapid prototyping and product testing
Design for manufacture and assembly (DfMA)
Conecpt Design - Different mechanical and aesthetic options were explored in order to define the final enclosure design.
Product Rendering - The final design concept was rendered to visualise the final production intent and explore material/colour options.
Prototype Manufacture - A full prototype was created in sheet metal to explore design options and establish production limitations.
Product Prototype - The final product prototype was created and tested against the desired perormance specifications.
Production Specifications - Full techncial drawings were created to define the production intent to the final manufacture.
