In concjunction with Lab Manager Magazine and Erlab, Labconco presents this on-demand webinar. We define the various ductless hoods currently available, explaining advantages and disadvantages of "going ductless." We also discuss criteria for selecting a ductless or filtered fume hood, appropriate uses for them, and we present case studies where filtered technology has been successfully implemented.

Ductless and filtered fume hoods can be a reliable, energy efficient, cost effective and eco-friendly alternative to traditional ducted fume hoods. Traditional ducted hoods are one of the largest energy wasters in most laboratories; they require costly mechanical components to operate properly and rapidly pass valuable tempered air out of your facility. Ductless and filtered solutions can lower energy costs while providing a safe environment to work with hazardous chemicals when properly implemented.

You will learn:

  • How to significantly lower energy costs
  • Advantages and disadvantages of using ductless and filtered fume hoods
  • How to select the right ductless or filtered hood for your application
  • Appropriate applications for ductless vs. ducted hoods in your lab
