The hoods feature a full 70" viewing height for ease of access and unobstructed view of fume chamber. Chamber sizes include 48, 60, 72, 96 and 120", and depths of 30, 36 and 48".
The fume chamber is molded, one-piece seamless with white surface for light reflectivity.
The fume chamber is a molded one piece white surface with all corners coved for easy cleaning and light reflectivity.
It directs and maintains a smooth, uniform flow of air into the fume chamber and across the work surface.
Available in 4', 5', 6' and 8' widths, the hood directs and maintains a smooth, uniform flow of air into the fume chamber and across the work surface, making the hood suited for delicate procedures and instrumentation.
The aerodynamic face opening with airfoil provides uniform airflow into the fume chamber. A constant-volume, low-flow hood with VaraFlow baffle system efficiently directs the airflow through the fume chamber to the exhaust outlet with minimum turbulence.
