What Type of Fume Hood Does Your Lab Need?

With so many options available, it can be difficult to tell which fume hood is right for your laboratory. LOC Scientific has been helping outfit all types of labs for more than 25 years, and we’re here to make the process of choosing a fume hood easier.

Fume Hoods for Specific Types of Substances

Radio Isotope Fume Hoods – If you work with radioactive material in your lab, our Radio Isotope Fume Hood may be the right one for you. Designed to reduce radioactive buildup and make cleaning easier, this fume hood features a stainless steel work surface and lining with welded seams.

Perchloric Acid Fume Hoods – Explosive and corrosive materials such as perchloric acid require special consideration. LOC Scientific’s Perchloric Acid Fume Hood includes a wash down spray bar for continuous cleaning behind the baffles and a trough to collect wash down water. It also has stainless steel construction and a full view sash.

Economy Fume Hoods

High Performance Fume Hoods – LOC’s Trilogy model High Performance Fume Hoods cut energy costs in half while still providing excellent safety and quality. This design reduces the volume of air that needs to be conditioned and exhausted and reduces the size of the HVAC equipment to provide superior energy-saving capabilities.

Add Air Fume Hoods – This design features a front mount “add air plenum” that can supply up to 70% of the total hood air volume required by an outside source and a built-in bypass to maintain velocity regardless of sash position.

Large Fume Hoods

Walk-In Fume Hoods – Our Walk-In Fume Hoods are available in the Low Bench Design or the Walk In Design, and feature sashes that come all the way to the ground. They are also available in widths up to 96” with additional special sizes available. This enables you to easily roll in large amounts of equipment and have complex setups that you would otherwise not be able to work with in smaller or countertop fume hoods.

Demonstration Fume Hoods – Perfect for teaching environments, our Demonstration Fume Hoods feature a sash on two sides and an end window for clear viewing of the interior from three sides.
