A unique benefit of using a filtered fume hood is that, unlike ducted hoods, costly tempered room air is not exhausted from the laboratory. This results in energy savings. The Cost Comparison Chart below shows the lower lifetime costs of a filtered hood compared to a traditional ducted hood in various configurations.
The greatest savings of a filtered fume hood is illustrated by the make-up air cost—the Protector Echo has none! In addition, the Protector Echo eliminates air pollutant emissions into the atmosphere. The Neutrodine Filter is made of plant-based carbon materials impregnated with neutral non-toxic agents. Once expended, the filters may be incinerated for environmentally-safe disposal.
