Labconco's high performance general chemistry laboratory hoods protect the user from harmful or toxic fumes or vapors generated from a broad range of applications. Containment-enhancing features allow them to operate at lower face velocities than traditional hoods while being energy-efficient and protecting the operator.
Since less room air is exhausted, energy is conserved.
See airflow demonstrations using smoke to show some of the innovative and highly effective features that make the Protector XStream® the most effective containing fume hood. Watch the airfoil sill, upper dilution air supply, sash handle and sash track direct air into the fume hood's baffles without causing dangerous, containment disrupting turbulence.
How the I-S Fume Hood Saves Energy
This animation shows how the Protector I-S works with a laboratory air supply’s pressure differential switch to save energy. When the sash is lowered, blower speed is automatically reduced to conserve the room's tempered air.
Webinar on Managing Lab Air with Chemical Fume Hoods
For many laboratories, managing air quality through engineered controls is essential for worker safety and comfort. However, with numerous options available for fume extraction and air purification, deciding on an engineered solution that best suits your lab’s current and future needs is not always straightforward.
