Our low flow fume hoods can result in considerable energy cost reduction and ensure operator safety.  Designed to operate from 60-100 feet per minute face velocities.  They have been tested as low as 50 feet per minute.

Our low volume option can result in considerable energy savings by reducing the sash opening size.

An Automatic Sash Operating System can be incorporated that lowers and/or rises automatically which can enhance safety and dramatically increase the efficiency of Variable Air Volume (VAV) fume hood systems.
