Laboratory fume hoods are designed to protect laboratory personnel by preventing contaminants such as chemical vapors, dust, mists and fumes from escaping into the laboratory environment. Laboratory fume hoods also provide lab personnel with a physical barrier to chemicals and their reactions. Fume hoods are evaluated each year to verify their proper operation. They are generally set back against the walls to cover up the exhaust ductwork. Because of their shape, they are generally dim inside but have a provision for a light source. The front opening is made up of glass, able to move up and down on a counterbalance mechanism.
The Presto Fume Hood has heavy Stainless Steel Construction 304 Grade, a small S.S. Sink, Water Tap, Water outlet provided. A sliding glass door moves vertically with counter weight. Complete with fluorescent light. Centrifugal motor fan with S.S. fitted with the exhaust fumes will vented with PVC pipe outlet.
Best Device for the Dust free environment. I have purchased the device Fume hood from Presto to exhaust all the fumes that are generated in our laboratory at the time of testing. The device is simply superb!!
