Fume hoods, exhaust hoods, biosafety cabinets, and laminar flow hoods are vital technical instruments used to provide a valid testing environment for research but also to provide safety for people and research in your laboratory. Proper maintenance of your fume hoods is crucial to keeping your team and your products safe. Haldeman-Homme, Inc. is proud to be a full-service provider. Call us anytime and we’ll make sure your fume hoods are running smoothly.
Why should you test your fume hoods? Testing can improve the safety of your laboratory, and it can improve energy use and cost savings. Testing can also assist building owners in diagnosing or tracking building HVAC changes or issues.
Fume hoods must not only be properly designed for the space and application but also they must be balanced with the building mechanical systems in order to work properly and provide you with the proper testing environment and safety for your personnel. Routine fume hood testing assures you that your fume hoods are operating safely.
A fume hood that is not operating properly is a risk to your people, your research and your organization. Basic chemical fume hoods are simply a box that provides a workspace for research to be conducted and a vessel to contain air that is circulated within the hood. While they are simply a box, they are engineered to manage air flow.
Today’s fume hoods are also designed to save energy, which saves you money and helps the environment. Because these energy saving fume hoods use less air, you have an increased risk of poor air containment in the fume hood if the hoods are not tested and maintained along with a properly operating and balanced HVAC system.
