Local Exhaust Ventilation

Laboratories are hazardous places. Various activities in the labs create harmful dusts, vapours, and fumes contaminating the air. While laboratory fume hoods contain the airborne contaminants, workplace accidents outside of fume hoods and carelessness in hood settings can contaminate the entire workspace.

Local exhaust ventilation (LEV) is an engineering system to suck the contaminants in the air out of the laboratories. LEV systems offer additional protection by transporting the contaminants away from the users' breathing zone.

Kewaunee LEV systems offers a variety of choices for laboratories to enable the additional layer of protection through High-efficiency particulate arrestance (HEPA) to capture air contaminants at a source.
