Fume hoods are a primary engineering control used in chemical laboratories to provide personnel protection from chemical exposure. Air volume and velocity measurements are taken to insure safety with fume hood exhaust and to meet design specifications for the space.
That is the professional definition, in simple terms we verify that industry safety levels for ventilation of toxic gases are met to ensure our researchers and scientists are protected while working on the next generation medicines and breakthroughs. Mechanical Testing has worked on many different projects involving many different applications involving a Fume Hood. From normal commercial applications like Kitchen Hoods and Paint Booths to high end Industrial Grade Capture Systems (Process Exhaust Systems) or Medical Research Hoods, Mechanical Testing can help you properly balance out your system for optimum efficiency.
