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.
