Fume Hoods

Vanguard, the ultimate in design

The Vanguard Fume Hood offers a combination of high performance, containment safety, energy efficiency and space utilization which will perfectly adapt to the realities of all modern laboratory environments.
Low velocity performance comes standard with Vanguard Fume Hoods.
By focusing on critical airflow paths, the Vanguard achieves superior containment, even with face velocities down to 60 FPM without having to resort to restricted sash openings, additional motors and fans or complex mechanized systems. This result in reduced operating costs in addition to lower first costs.
With the Vanguard Fume Hood there is no need to work with restricted sash openings to reduce the amount of exhaust air, its performance numbers are achieved with a full open sash.

Balance Air « HHHawkins

When the sash islowered, air is fed through the louvered top section as well as through the aerodynamic airfoil located underthe sash creating a sweeping air movement at the work surface to reduce dead-air pockets and airturbulence at the work surface front. With conventional hoods, face velocity becomes excessive when the sash isat a lower position, disturbing the work being conducted inside the hood.
