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.


Variable Air « HHHawkins

The Variable Air Volume fume hood combined with an HVAC control system is designed to vary the hood’sexhaust rate to maintain a constant average face velocity throughout the sash travel. Front corner posts & interior side panels pre-punched to accept up to 10 plumbing fixtures. Upper and lower by passes with interior adjustable top front cover. Aerodynamic air foil with electrical cord access.


Fume Hood « HHHawkins

Auxillary Air « HHHawkins

Ideally suited to labs with limited HVAC capacity, the Auxiliary Air Fume Hood controls air velocity in muchthe same way as the Balanced Air Hood. This auxiliary air is introduced outside the fumehood above the sash and enters the hood through the face with the sash open. In addition the Auxiliary Air Hood features an upper front intakeplenum to reduce the consumption of conditioned room air.
