Five Vital Considerations for Choosing a Fume Hood:


You may be anxious about the fume hood's security. Numerous elements, such as fume hood design, building materials, sash placements, exhaust efficiency, user-friendly features, etc., have an impact on safety. The National Fire Protection Association, SEFA, ASHRAE, Underwriters Laboratories, and other recognized organizations are among those working hard to specify safety and quality requirements.


Studies show that a lab consumes five times as much energy as an equivalent office setting. As environmental standards tighten and businesses become more conscious of their energy use, fume hoods can play an important role in lowering energy costs and carbon footprint. Fume hood exhaust requirements have an impact on the whole cost of energy, including the cost of heating and cooling the air vented by the hood.


Modern fume hoods provide users with convenience in addition to safety. A seemingly unimportant detail may have an impact on the lab environment.


Chemical fumes, vapors, and condensation particles must not corrode the hood's interior. For safety and a higher return on investment, you should place a high priority on fume hood designs that prevent contaminants from collecting and depositing on the inside surface.


The specified safe work area of the fume hood (6" behind the plane of the sash) must be big enough to fit the containers and equipment. Containers should be able to enter and exit the hood with ease thanks to its design.
