Protector Echo Filtered Floor-Mounted Fume Hoods provide the interior height needed for bulky apparatus. These hoods feature fully-closing, vertical-rising sashes.
The Echo uses Neutrodine® Filters, the most comprehensive, safety-driven carbon filter available. This single molecular filter type can easily adsorb most chemicals and mixtures, taking the guesswork out of filter selection. Erlab-proven Neutrodine Filters are the heart of GFH Filtration Technology.
