laminar

 [lam´ĭ-nar]
made up of laminae or layers; pertaining to a lamina.
laminar flow hood a device that separates the air flowing through it into layers, cleansing the air of microorganisms. It is used to protect patients with compromised immune systems and is also used in operating rooms and pharmacies to provide a clean environment.

According to the people from Maxum, its laminar flow technology can provide benefits in terms of things like energy savings because whereas with conventional blow-off devices, the focused air begins to expand as soon as it leaves the nozzle, but with its converging and laminar flow approach, the air reaches the part in a more concentrated form, which results in faster, more-efficient drying.
