The FumeGard NU-162 is built primarily of stress-relieved polypropylene to which NuAire has added anti-oxidizing agents and UV stabilizers. This increases tensile strength and improves thermal characteristics. Polypropylene is highly corrosion-resistant and able to withstand organic solvents, degreasing agents, and electrolytic attack.
NuAire polypropylene products are a long-lasting choice for applications that require highly corrosive materials or a metal-free work environment.
The FumeGard NU-162 Conventional Fume Hood is manufactured in four standard widths [nominal]: 4, 5, 6, and 8 feet with two standard work surface depths of 24” or 30”. Each cabinet is thoroughly inspected before shipment. The final inspection certifies the fume hood’s performance to SEFA 1-1992 and a copy of this test report is shipped with each cabinet. The FumeGard NU-162 has been independently tested to meet and exceed the requirements of ASHRAE Standard 110-1995.
