An addendum was included with Standard 62.1-2013 that allows a responsible environmental health and safety (EH&S) professional to reclassify fume hood exhaust
as Class 3 based on an evaluation of chemicals used, total exhaust volume, systems used, and the resultant concentrations at the energy recovery device.
In order to improve recovery efficiency, having a dedicated exhaust network for fume hoods and one for general laboratory exhaust gives the opportunity to install high efficiency heat recovery (enthalpy wheel) on the general exhaust and safer heat recovery (glycol loop) on fume hood exhaust
Met-Pro Corporation (NYSE: MPR), a provider of product recovery, pollution control, fluid handling and filtration solutions, has announced that its Strobic Air business unit has received a contract for research laboratory fume hood exhaust
systems, according to Raymond J De Hont, the company's chairman and chief executive officer
c) All fume hood exhaust
setpoints shall be reduced to a fixed percentage of the maximum hood rates; this percentage shall be determined as specified in Section 230593 Testing, Adjusting and Balancing.
The TriStack mixed flow exhaust fan line offers safety critical applications, such as laboratory fume hood exhaust
and ventilation, for specialized care environments like airborne infection isolation rooms.
At research laboratories--particularly sensitive biosafety level (BSL) facilities--laboratory workstation fume hood exhaust
must not be re-entrained through doors, windows, ventilation intakes or other building openings.
If a proposed design approach does not treat the fume hood exhaust
as hazardous, it is recommended that the engineer obtain approval from the owner and the environmental health and safety officer.
Overall, there was a 30% reduction in fume hood exhaust
compared to before the competitions, resulting in annual energy savings of more than $180,000 and more than 300 tons of greenhouse gas emissions.
Options include the Sentinel XL fume hood monitor, cupsinks, work surfaces (phenolic resin, epoxy resin, ceramic, stainless steel), base cabinets, ELCB/MCB electrical circuit protection, and fume hood exhaust
* Make sure fume hood exhaust
fans are properly controlled.
Where the fume hood exhaust
for a space is less than or equal to the minimum ventilation rate, the fume hood operates at a constant exhaust rate.
Mixed-flow impeller systems also reduce noise, use less energy, and provide enhanced performance with faster payback over conventional laboratory fume hood exhaust
