Under SEFA 9:2010 – Recommended Practices for Ductless Enclosures (Scientific Equipment and Furniture Association) there are three categories of “ductless hood” or DH?

DH II: A ductless hood capable of meeting all DH I requirements, and equipped with a filtration device designed to filter manufacturer-approved toxic contaminants up to filter breakthrough only.
DH III: A ductless hood capable of meeting all DH II requirements, and equipped with a filtration device designed to filter manufacturer-approved toxic contaminants beyond primary filter breakthrough by providing secondary back-up protection.
