Chemical fume hoods are an important piece of equipment to ensure a safe and hazard-free environment. Laboratories that work with chemicals require specialized ventilation to remove toxic vapors, fumes, dust, and gasses that could endanger the health of your employees. When used properly, chemical filtered fume hoods reduce these potential poisons from the lab and improve the air quality.
Knowing how to operate a chemical filtered fume hood is important to maintaining the integrity of your lab’s workspace. They are designed to pull the dangerous chemical byproducts from the air and expel it outside through a vent. It’s important that the chemical fume hood is kept clear of debris, chemicals, and other items at all times, so it can do its job.
Your employees should be fully trained in the operation of the hood and what safety precautions they need to follow. Our filtered fume hoods are built with safety in mind, and they are easy to operate when used correctly. It’s important to note that your staff should be trained to keep a safe distance from the hood at all times, and they should not face the hood directly. When raised to the correct height, the sash can be used as a protective mechanism to control the flow of air.
