Our Hoods incorporate a sleek exterior with a molded one-piece fiberglass liner. The one-piece liner of specially-formulated, fiberglass-reinforced polyester offers corrosion and fire resistance and easy clean up.
Laboratory Hoods are offered in 4', 5', 6' and 8' widths so their dimensions exactly match standard laboratory casework. Choose from hoods designed to be used with a remotely-located blower or hoods that include a built-in blower.
Models with built-in blower are available. Quiet built-in blower is belt-driven with molded thermoplastic housing and coated aluminum impeller that is non-sparking and corrosion-resistant. Available with explosion-proof or standard motor.
Fluorescent lighting illuminates the interior. The high efficiency, instant start, T8 fluorescent lights are located outside the hood interior for corrosion-resistance and easy replacement. Explosion-proof models are supplied with an incandescent light fixture.
Color-coded service fixtures for gas, air, water, vacuum and other services have remote controls for use regardless of the sash position. Two service fixtures are pre-plumbed on fixtured models. Each hood is factory prepared for up to eight service fixtures (four on each side).
ETL-listed. Hoods carry the ETL mark signifying that they are certified to UL 3101-1/61010-1, UL 1805 and CAN/CSA C22.2 No.1010.1.
Performance tested to ASHRAE 110-1995.
Front and side panels may be easily removed for lamp replacement and access to electrical supply connections.
Service access panels allow accessibility to plumbing from the front of the hood.
**Ergonomic air foil allows air to sweep the work surface for maximum containment. Clean-Sweep* airflow openings pull inflow air from under the air foil so that clean air continually flows over the air foil creating a constant barrier of protection from contaminants.
**Corrosion-resistant, molded fiberglass exhaust connection(s) on models for use with remote blowers.
By-pass airflow design ensures stable face velocities that meet or exceed established standards.
Durable and attractive exterior is glacier white, dry powder epoxy-coated steel.
CE mark†. All 230 volt, 50 Hz models conform to the CE (European Community) requirements for electrical safety and electromagnetic compatibility.
Pre-set baffle provides a uniform face velocity pattern across the sash opening of the hood.
Large 28" sash opening offers superior viewing. When fully open, the sash does not extend above the hood.
Vertical-rising tempered safety glass sash is anti-racking for smooth operation. Contact Teclab for ordering information on horizontal sliding or combination sashes.
One-piece molded fiberglass liner gives superior corrosion and chemical resistance, durability and light reflectivity. Its smooth, radiused corners make cleaning easy.
Pre-wired electrical components. Fluorescent lights and switches are factory-wired to the hood’s single point junction box. One electrical duplex receptacle is factory-wired on 115 volt, 60 Hz fixtured models. Each hood is factory-prepared for up to four electrical duplexes and an air-flow monitor. Explosion-proof models are furnished without switches, electrical receptacle and wiring as these must conform to varying local codes.
