Fumehood Selection guide

Selection of a correct fume hood to use in laboratory should be based on the following considerations:

  • The hood must allow the user to work in a safe and efficient manner.
  • The hood must reduce air conditioning cost.
  • The hood must be large enough to accommodate the required containers and apparatus, so that the containers can be moved in and out of the hood easily.
  • The interior of the hood must resist the corrosive effects of chemicals and should be selected based on the lab requirements.
