What is Fume Hood Calibration?

Fume hoods play a vital role in properly evacuating materials that might lead to air quality issues and related health effects.  To operate a well-balanced face velocity flow it is imperative to ensure adequate chemical removal processes while not over-ventilating at the cost of reconditioning of exhausted air.  OSHA recommends utilizing a fume ood or alternate ventilation device (system) when working with volatile substances with a a TLV <50ppm1.  GL-Tec is a fume hood certification provider for laboratories and research organizations.

How Often Should Fume Hoods be Tested?

GL Technologies can implement a performance test to reassure you that the hoods perform as they are required and every 18 months.  It typically involves an evaluation of the face velocity, sound, containment and tracking ability of a VAV (if applicable).
