Exhaust hoods are vessels to control and contain harmful chemical fumes to protect users and products being tested in a laboratory, quality assurance testing, research and development, education, classroom, medical or manufacturing research facility. They are in stock and available in standard sizes and configurations or can be custom designed for your space and testing requirements.
Floor Mounted Exhaust Hoods provide large access and open space inside the hood for large apparatus, lab equipment, or lab specimens.
Safety is the main performance criteria for any fume or exhaust hoods. Proper containment of harmful chemical fumes is dependent on the design of the exhaust hoods, the design of the building mechanical system and the training of the users. High quality, safe fume hoods are developed through decades of research and development in the flow and containment of air inside and outside of the hood. Air flow that is regulated and consistent as it passes through the exhaust hood and into the building duct system will operate safely and with energy efficiency. All of our exhaust hoods are tested and pass ASHRAE and SEFA standards for safety and quality compliance.
Exhaust hoods are designed to fit the space, the user, the equipment used in the hood and the specimens being tested. The hoods are available in steel, stainless and polypropylene depending on the chemicals present. Sizes range from small tabletop units to huge stand alone rooms or buildings large enough to contain large testing apparatus or products. Hoods can include electrical outlets, water, plumbing, and a wide variety of air and gas services to accommodate the needs of the users and equipment.
Building mechanical systems can be as simple as ductwork and a roof mounted blower connected to the exhaust hood to complex variable air volume systems that control the supply and return air in entire facilities. Our exhaust hoods can be monitored and controlled by these sophisticated systems. Fume hood monitors calibrate the velocity and volume of air that passes through the front opening of the hood. Sash monitors and automatic sash closures can automatically operate the fume hood sash in order to increase safety and decrease energy use.
