Explore Kewaunee's Diverse Fume Hood Selection

Benchtop Fume Hood

A bench-top fume hood is strategically positioned either on a bench-top or above a storage fume cabinet. These hoods are designed for a diverse array of chemical procedures that involve handling small to moderate quantities of substances ranging from low to highly toxic materials. Bench-top hoods effectively contain exhaust gases, vapors, mists, fumes, and other aerosols with low particle mass, ensuring a safe and controlled laboratory environment.


Product Specifications

  • ASHRAE Standard 110.2016 - method of testing performance of laboratory fume hoods used.
  • Custom sizes available: 4 feet, 5 feet, 6 feet, 8 feet, etc.
  • Sash can be found in horizontal, vertical, and combination forms
  • Kem glass liner found in the hood
  • Type 316L and Type 304L Stainless Steel used in the hood
  • The bypass channels are open and restricted.

Distillation Fume Hood

Distillation fume hoods are essential for procedures involving tall apparatuses and handling small-to-medium quantities of materials with varying toxicity levels. Ideally suited for bench-top environments, these hoods offer greater interior height compared to standard bench-top hoods, making them perfect for accommodating larger apparatuses. Mounted on a pedestal, the distillation hood elevates the work surface to a convenient height of 20 inches above the floor, ensuring optimal ergonomics and safety.

Product Specifications

  • Complete compliance with ASHRAE Standard 110.2016 - Method of Testing Performance of Laboratory Fume Hoods and NIH03-112C - National Institute of Health Specification
  • The sash of the fume hood is vertical.
  • The hood liner is made up of Kemglass (Fiberglass reinforced polyester) and KMER (Kewaunee Modified Epoxy Resin)
  • Open and restricted bypass channel in the fume cabinet hood.
  • The interior height is 83 inches
  • LED light fixture with illumination and color controller
  • Mechanical sash stop

Floor Mounted Fume Hood

A floor-mounted hood, also known as a walk-in fume cabinet hood, is specifically designed for accommodating large apparatus and hazardous containers that are too big for standard storage cabinets. This hood type is ideal for performing the same tasks typically conducted in bench-top and distillation hoods but on a much larger scale.


Product Specifications

  • henolic resin, like Kemglass and KEMR glass liner, is present in the fume hood.
  • Shash frames consist of powder-coated steel
  • LED fixtures present in the fume cabinet
  • Compliance with ASTM D552 - Bending Test, NFPA-45 - National Fire Protection Association, and other esteemed regulations.
  • Sash format is present in vertical, horizontal, and combined forms.

Radioisotope Fume Hood

Radioisotope fume hoods are designed specifically for environments involving beta and gamma radiation. These hoods share the general characteristics of standard bench-top fume hoods but incorporate specialized features. The work surface and interior lining are crafted from 304 stainless steel, complete with coved seamless welded seams. This design ensures ease of cleaning and decontamination, providing safety and convenience in radioactive settings.

Product Specifications

  • The hood is available in different sizes, such as 4 feet, 5 feet, 6 feet, and 8 feet.
  • The sash is vertical.
  • Type 304L Stainless Steel is present as a liner.
  • The interior height of the fume cabinet is 48 inches.
  • The electromechanical sash stops with a push button override.
  • 5" diameter stainless steel cup sink welded into the left rear corner of the worktop.
  • Reinforced stainless steel worktop seamlessly coved welded to side and back liners.

Perchloric Acid Fume Hood

A perchloric acid fume cabinet hood is distinguished by its bench-top design, featuring an interior lining made of coved and seamlessly welded stainless steel. This specialized hood extends the use of non-reactive and corrosion-resistant materials throughout the exhaust system to ensure safety and durability.

Equipped with a water wash-down system, the hood, duct, and fan efficiently remove perchlorates and prevent the accumulation of potentially explosive perchlorate salts. For applications where heat is not a concern, alternative non-reactive materials such as CPVC or polypropylene can be utilized for the interior lining.


Product Specifications

  • Vapor-proof light fixture with 120 VAC, 20 amp light switch.
  • 120 VAC 20 amp GFCI* protected duplex receptacles present.
  • The electromechanical sash stops with a push button override.
  • The sash of the hood is vertical in nature.
  • The bypass channel is open in Perchloric Acid Fume Hood
  • Type 316L Stainless Steel liner present in the fume hood
