Case Study

Scott Bader

Laboratory Exposure Control


Pioneers in Chemistry

Scott Bader is a well-established international company manufacturing, developing and distributing synthetic resins and polymers to many different markets around the world.

A vast majority of the development and testing work is undertaken in the company’s headquarters in Northamptonshire. The need for more stringent and complicated product testing with various hazardous chemicals raised a concern with Scott Bader that the current local exhaust ventilation (LEV) system installed was not sufficient to meet the current HSE regulations recommended within HSG258.

In order to meet these guidelines, Scott Bader approached MECHON to design solutions, given MECHON’s years of experience in such industries.

The solution from MECHON included purpose-designed cabinet enclosures to limit employee exposure to airborne solvents whilst working with chemicals. on benchtops.

Lip extraction was included above a number of curing ovens to remove fumes that would otherwise be released into the laboratory when opening the doors.

Through careful design and co-ordinated project management, the solution was completed on time and under budget, providing Scott Bader with a safe and professional installation.
