German term or phrase: Vertikalstrom RR-Bank
This is a kind of laminar flow workbench. Would "Vertikalstrom" be "vertical current" or "vertical stream"? Or something else? However, what I'm really stuck on is "RR" - I have no idea at all what "RR" would be.(Abbreviations are the bane of my life in this business!) But hoping someone here does. Thanks in advance for your help.

vertical flow clean-room bench
Explanation:
If RR is Reinraum (clean room = special room shut off this airlocks etc to prevent contamination, especially with dust), then this could be it.

The ref. below refer to vertical and horizontal flow benches (or workbenches).

HTH!!

from the ref.:

Clean Bench
Horizontal or vertical flow benches utilize \"SAM\" fan powered filter modules to provide an even flow of clean air over the work surface.

And this one mentions laminar flow in combination with clean room benches.

Better expressed, perhaps, as \"clean-room bench with vertical (air) flow\"
