LOC’s Perchloric Acid Fume Hoods are specifically designed for the use of perchloric acid. A coved stainless steel liner with integral work surface, an internal water wash down system and water collection trough provide for detailed cleaning of the hood interior. In addition, the interior baffles are also removable for cleaning to prevent the dangerous build-up of perchlorates.
The static pressures listed above are for the hoods only. An appropriate amount will need to be added to this figure to compensate for the pressure drop through the duct system. The total pressure drop through the hood and the duct system must be known to select the proper exhaust blower.
