Laminar Flow Cabinets – Definition

The usage of Laminar Flow Cabinets is mandatory while performing data recovery procedures on hard drives with severe mechanical damage.

Platters, the most important part of a hard drive, are very sensitive to dust particles which may stick to the surface. This can cause head crash which will most certainly leave the scratches and destroy the surface.

In order to prevent this, all companies which produce hard drives have clean rooms and cabinets inside their facilities. Beside this, they have strict lab equipment policy which ensures dust free environment.

Laminar cabinets, or cabinets with laminar air flow, represent laboratory equipment that serves to perform certain analyses of samples and activities on materials that are very sensitive to microparticles or can be dangerous to humans and the environment.

Each cabinet has its own suction, filtering, ducting and disposal system.

Depending on the combinations of these systems, a rough categorisation is made to cabinets with horizontal and vertical air currents.

Horizontal flow means that the air is directed to the operator, while the vertical flow is directed directly to the subject matter.

Also, cabinets can be with open or closed workspace. Closed space is used when the subject of work is some dangerous substance, virus, agent, etc.

In the next news item we will explain the working principle of the laminar flow cabinets further, as well as data recovery benefits of using them.
