A laboratory fume hood is a five-sided enclosure designed to contain and exhaust fumes and odors generated during laboratory procedures. Fume hood is to provide personnel protection against toxic fumes, vapors and dust. Its secondary function includes protection against chemical spills, runaway reactions and fires by acting.
Special Safety Features: Built to the same high functionality and safety standards of all Air Master fume hoods, the Barrier-Free fume hood line is constructed to accommodate a seated operator as well as allowing comfortable standing operation. All service controls and instructions are within easy reach and sight while seated and the standard sash is counter weighted for effortless control. The work top, in addition to the standard marine edgem has a black power coated trough to provide secondary protection from spillage.
Air Management: Constant exhaust volume, drawing air efficiently through the open sash or through the bypass opening when sash is closed.
Superstructure: Outer wall is chemically resistant power coated sheet steel. Interior lining is a phenolic sheet material unless otherwise specified. Double wall construction offers a 5’’ chase area, making it easy to install plumbing and electrical fictures within walls.
Airfoil: Front opening is framed with 45B angle fascia that substantially reduces the turbulence of air entering the hood. The bottom horizontal airfoil/trough directs a current of air at counter top level to purge heavy fumes or spillage.
