On-Demand Webinar: Spending a Fortune with Ducted Fume Hoods? - Safe Alternatives to the Traditional Ducted Fume Hood

Unlike ducted hoods, Filtered Fume Hoods do not exhaust your laboratory’s costly tempered air to the outdoors. People are often surprised to learn that the annual energy savings gained by switching to Filtered Fume Hoods pays for the switch many times over the life of the hood.

The greatest savings are due to completely eliminating the cost of make-up air. Filtered Fume Hoods also eliminate the need to emit pollutants into the atmosphere. The most advanced filter for this type of hood is the Neutrodine™ filter, which is composed of plant-based carbon materials and impregnated with neutral non-toxic agents. Once expended, Neutrodine filters may be incinerated for environmentally-safe disposal.

The following Cost Comparison Chart shows how the lower operating costs of a filtered hood compare to a traditional ducted hood in various configurations.
