Designed for classroom use, these lightweight hoods feature an epoxy-coated aluminum frame with tempered safety glass front sash, sides, rear baffle, and top
Hood systems include a white, epoxy-coated tubular steel cart with a black 2.5cm (1") thick solid epoxy dished work surface, a handle bar, a bottom shelf, and 10.2cm (4") diameter toe-locking casters. Also included is a FilterMate™ Portable Exhauster, which requires either two carbon filters or one carbon filter and one HEPA filter (filters sold separately).
The organic carbon filter cell is a type AC filter that contains 5.4kg (12lbs.) of granular activated carbon media suitable for organic solvents including acetone, ethyl acetate, toluene, and xylene. The formaldehyde carbon filter cell is a type C1 filter that contains 6.4kg (14lbs.) of impregnated carbon media suitable for vapors from formaldehyde. The ammonia filter cell is a type CX filter that contains 7.3kg (16lbs.) of impregnated carbon media suitable for ammonia and low-molecular weight amines. The HEPA filter cell is 99.99% efficient on particulates 0.3µm in size; however, it should not be used to capture biohazardous materials or volatile organic material. The syringe kit is for carbon saturation detection (detector tubes sold separately).
Hoods have a nominal width of 91.4cm (3') and an interior depth of 58.4cm (23") to easily accommodate a variety of apparatus. Hoods feature the Clean-Sweep™ air foil that allows air to sweep the work surface for maximum containment; two utility ports with iris openings for connection of tubing, cords, and cables; and an ergonomic angled sash that reduces glare. Flexible exhaust options enable the hood to be connected to ductwork for exhausting to the outside or to the optional FilterMate™ Portable Exhauster (see 82010-632 series) for filtered removal of fumes and/or particulates.
