Fercell_ENO_1.jpgFERCELL says it was asked to assist the English National Opera with a fume extraction problem within the costumes department. A huge element of opera are the elaborate costumes, of which many are made at the London Coliseum. They required a new fume extraction system that would extract solvent fume from the gluing process associated with creating intricate masks and clothing.

Fercell’s proposed solution was to completely remove the existing fan and replace it with a Geovent MSQ centrifugal fan set. Fercell’s engineer installed a new correctly-sized and balanced ducting system, linked up to the connection of an articulated arm and fume cabinet. The fumes are now collected by a flexible arm so there is more space to work and move around in, and fumes are externally disposed of.
