Face Velocities

Tested to both standard and modified ASHRAE procedures at face velocities as low as 50 fpm fully open.

Baffle Design

Downflow rear baffled is biased to the bottom, drawing fumes downward away from the user and counteracts the normal upward flow of vapors and prevents contaminated air build up behind the closed sash. Supplementary mechanical fans not required.

Exhaust System

Suitable for use in either Variable Volume or Constant Volume applications.

Chain Drive Sash

Chain and sprocket mechanism that delivers the easiet and most reliable sash operation available with an exceptionally long life span.

Full Viewing Sash

Provides a clear and unobstructed side to side view of fume hood interior, with a 44-1/2" high viewing area. Rear mounted fixed tinted visor included.

Self-lowering Sash System

Sash latch temporarily secures the sash in full open position for setup and tear down operations. When the lock is freed, the sash automatically returns to the 18" open operational position which offers extra protection tot he operator and helps reduce energy consumption. Below 18" the sash is equally balance.

Flush Sill Airfoil

Low-profile hinged Type 316 powder coated stainless steel airfoil is flush with work surface to provide ergonomic and unobstructed access to the interior. Power cords can be run through the sill to the electrical outlets on the hood posts.

Spill Trough

Designed to provide secondary containment in the event a spill escapes the primary containment work top.

Electrical and Plumbing

Two UL/CSA approved duplex receptacles provided for  120 volt service. Built-in LED lighting and a corner post mounted UL/CSA approved switch provided. Fixture holes are not pre-punched and punched only as ordered (front post can accept four fixtures per side). Factory pre-plumbing is an available option.

Stainless Steel Exhaust Collar

Wide rectangular exhaust duct connection improves airflow distribution across hood width.
