  • Application Area:Production line for food product

"The sash is flippable, which is great for some application but can be a problem for our application. Browser application is bit buggy. Bench arrived with small dent and few screw stripped. Quality and quantity of carbon filters will assure the user protection. Overall, it is a good product for the cost."

  • Application Area:Analyze metal loss corrosion coupons from pipelines

"The Captair Smart Ductless Fume Hood that we use for cleaning and analyzing weight loss metal corrosion coupons from energy related facilities including pipelines, well sites and petrochemical facilities has worked wonders for us. We use acids and other chemicals in the NACE and ASTM standards for cleaning and previously the fumes affected our offices near the laboratory and the workers. With the fume hood these problems are gone. We had excellent advice on what fume hood to purchase, had help on installation, set up, and as well as later help in maintenance and operation."

Rating: 4.7

  • Application Area:Ductless fume hood for general use

"Simple but effective ductless fume hood. Good air draw, which is great for routine USP-style wet chem testing. It has whisper-quiet fans and even the alarms aren't excessively loud. The interface is not overly complicated; the simple beep codes have a guide pre-printed on the chassis."

Solid choice for a fume hood.
Rating: 4.3

  • Application Area:Acid digestion

"This hood is easy to clean and easy to use. It took a bit of time to figure out how to connect a computer to it to change the flow rate of the air. I like the option to flip the door up or down to work at different angles. I have 2 different sizes of digestion vessels and use one configuration for each. The flipping door is nice, but I'm at the height that when I'm sitting in front of the hood, the bar/hinge is right in front of my eyes. My sight is a bit limited when I'm sitting to make standards, and this causes me to tend to use the front work area of the hood. As far as fume removal, I never smell my aqua regia when it's made or when I'm opening my digestion vessels."

"The system works very well, the control system is working Ok, but sometimes you lose connection. The saturation filter sensor is very useful if you have a safe environment, but fail when if your environment is polluted with VOCs. Is easy to change the filter, but the technology for the "safe change" is too manual, and not so safe."

"The captair smart is great tool for us in the brewery. It does a great job filtering out harmful or unpleasant fumes from pure concentration stocks and keeps chemical handling isolated in a safe environment. I use my hood multiple times a day and have never been displeased. The main reason we purchased this unit was because of the stand alone filtration so I wouldn't have to spend more money for installation of a ventilation system."

Perfect for a Medium Sized Brewing Laboratory!
Rating: 5.0

  • Application Area:Brewing analytical chemistry/solvent extractions

"We started using our ductless fume hood in April. It has done a great job of filtering through aromatic chemicals that we use. We use the hood for our IBU solvent extraction as well as prepping our sensory stock solutions. The sensory chemicals can be extremely aromatic, so it is important we don't disrupt the rest of the lab with smells of buttered popcorn (diacetyl) and stinky socks (isovaleric acid). We also really like the ability to connect the hood to our network, so we can see the performance of the filters and sensors from our desktops."

Rating: 4.7

  • Application Area:Handling of volatile solvent

"Ductless fume hoods advantages priority is easiness of use and handling. Our labs are located at 3 story building. Imagine the difficulties we have to face when equipping the lab. Permanent fume hoods are almost impossible since we would have to break down a window to get one in. So, ductless fume hoods are the best choice and the performance is also almost similar to the permanent model. Most of all, they can be transferred easily to any lab ."

"The hood was delivered pallet style and needed to be put together. It was easy enough for one person to put it together, with the exception of placing the filter on top. I did need to contact customer service to determine how to change the flow-rate but it was not difficult. We use the hood for roughly 2.5 hrs a week and have not encountered a problem in 10 months. There are instructions on cleaning that we never received, but basically consists of "use mild detergent, no abrasives etc.""

Overall a good product that could use some work on the software.
Rating: 3.7

  • Application Area:Histology laboratory specializing in placental tissue

"The fume hood is incredibly easy to set up and swap out filters when a replacement is required. The software that control the hood is a little clunky to set up, and it would be nice if there was a way to manually control settings without attaching the hood to a network."

Overall a great product
Rating: 4.7

  • Application Area:Metallurgical Lab

"This hood met and exceeded my expectations. Little to no maintenance, and was easy to install. They contacted me when the filter needed to be replaced. This made remembering to change the filter less cumbersome. This hood saved my company a lot of money over a traditional hoods. It would have been very expensive to put in the normal duct work for a conventional hood."

No nonsense modular & ductless fume hood.
Rating: 4.7

  • Application Area:Ductless fume hood

"Easy to install and move if necessary. Due to the modular design parts it can easily fit through a standard door (80 cm). No ducts needed (saves on costs for installation). Performs well. Filters can be easily adapted to suit your needs. Constant monitoring of filters and air speed with an integrated alarm for users in case of low air velocity. All parameters, can be easily adjusted through web interface."

Other than minor issue with filter life, this product has worked well.
Rating: 4.7

  • Application Area:Undergraduate courses: Immunology/Virology, Capstone projects

"This is a product that only gets used a couple times per week for a few hours for individual courses. I was disappointed that the filter life was not longer for the amount of times that it gets used. It signaled an alarm at the 1 year of life. That being said, the fact that it is ductless and versatile works well in a lab that has no ducting. It allows our program flexibility in the course development in that particular room. I do like the fact that it is monitored by a computer program which allows visual on the optimal working condition at the time of use. It allows for trouble shooting should an alarm signal."

This fumehood works extremely well!
Rating: 4.3

  • Application Area:Petroleum Lab to capture volatile fumes

"This hood is very easy to use, and has a single button to turn on and off. The filters are a piece of cake to change, and you can set a date so you know when the filter needs to be changed. When running it is very quiet, you can't even tell it is running. Overall this is an incredible hood."

So far it does its job
Rating: 4.0

  • Application Area:sample preparation

"Using the fume hood has improved our sample preparation and led to better results. We were a bit unhappy about the delivery because the instrument simply got dumped into our lab. We would have appreciated the little extra effort of actually placing it at the intended spot, because unlike us the hauler had the right equipment to lift the very heavy fume hood. We were lucky to lift it to its place without damaging either us or the instrument."

Poprobably the best infra lab investition
Rating: 4.3

  • Application Area:Handling and preparation of catalyst

"The Hood is easy to use and achieves most of our needs, since we work with special dusts that are not retained by common hoods. The hood ist also flexibel because it can been moved within the laboratory independently of the infrastructure (due to the filter). It is also flexible, because we can adapt it to our application by modifying the filter. Exactly what a R&D-Department like our needs."

  • Application Area:PCR in PCR Cabinets and Liquid Handling of Chemicals and ductless fume hoods

"It’s really well designed, straight forward with all things in place you would need the most. Service after Sales is good. Maintenance (Changing of filters) is really easy. And value for Money is great. We compared with other suppliers, but this equipment had the best value for our needs. We have PCR Cabinets and a Hood for Handling with Chemicals/ Solvents like Formamide, Xylene etc. Because we are not heavy users, this Ductless Fume Hood was the best option for us. Regarding PCR Cabinets, we are now using the cabinets for 15 years still with success! Only shortcoming we recognized are the micro fissures in the acrylic glass."

Rating: 4.3

  • Application Area:Brewery analytics

"The fume hood is simple to use and very convenient in that we can place it anywhere for use. Just turn it on and its ready to go. We have moved it several times and continue to have perfectly acceptable results. The hood was purchased used, but Erlab had continued to support us with new filters and technical assistance, despite the fact I am sure they would love to sell us a new, more up to date unit. Given the age on the item, it has held up very well and is well worth what we paid for it, as well as what it would have cost new. I do have to keep in mind that this model is made of plexi-glass and semi-permanent connections, so it is not the most robust unit but the newer models look really nice."

  • Application Area:Hydrocarbon diesel samples

"The Erlab Ductless Fume Hoods could fit anywhere in the lab as long as it sits on a bench top. It minimizes the odor when I work with hydrocarbon samples. The best thing about this hood is I placed it next to my instrument so it saves me time to walk to another hood to work with samples. The least favorite thing of this hood is the display, I can't see what it is saying because the screen is not bright enough. I would say it is reliable and easy to use. It is easy to change out a new filter when I need to."

We keep going back to Erlab vs. competitors because we trust we'll receive high quality tools to protect our employees
Rating: 4.7

  • Application Area:Cleaning of pilot line parts/tools

"The specification process for filter media, projected life span, and process evaluation during the sales process and after sale is what has kept us going back to Erlab. Other products on the market offer "carbon" filtration but provide little to no analysis of the customer's intended use. The Valiquest evaluation process provides reassurance that I'm providing tools for my employees that will effectively protect them from the potential hazards they encounter during their work day."

"The Erlab Ductless Fume Hood has been a staple in our Textile Testing Laboratory for many years. We have a wide variety of users and uses, yet the quality and performance of this equipment has always been the very best. The ductless feature was a great advantage, and the quality of the air filtering process is exceptional. I highly recommend Erlab! "

The ductless hood is the only option that we have for the application. Installation of a conventional hood is prohibited due to space and location considerations in the building.
Rating: 3.7

  • Application Area:Prepare samples of organic solvents for trace metals analysis.

"The product performs as advertised. It removes the evaporating organic solvent vapours from the hood work space and traps them in charcoal filters there by protecting the lab technician. The only drawback is the short lifetime of the filters. With the current sample load, the filters become saturated faster than wished for, necessitating expensive filter replacement and disposal costs. "

  • Application Area:Vent hood fume filter

"The filter was very easy to install, however, there was minor confusion as to which way was up. I contacted Erlab and they said to place the filter in so as to have the writing 'right side up'.... well, the way it was put together, either way it was put in, some writing would be right side up, and some would be upside down. A simple sticker with an arrow would have been nice."

Great product for a small space, still doesn't beat a real, installed hood for ease of use.
Rating: 4.0

  • Application Area:toxicology, hood used to prepare reagents

"The only problem I have with the unit is its sash. I prepare reagents in 4 liter bottles, which are taller than the first opening of the sash. I have to really contort my arm to pipette acids into a 4L bottle of methanol to make mobile phases. If I opened the sash all the way, I wouldn't get any protection from the noxious fumes, which is the whole point of using the hood. However, I work in a small physician's office lab where a full, installed hood with a sliding sash is just not possible. This small fume hood is the best option available for our situation, but it is a bit difficult to use for my particular applications. Maybe another model could be made where the sash can be manipulated horizontally instead of vertically? E.g.- you can remove/ slide the right side of the sash to manoeuvre inside the hood, but the remaining 2/3 (left & center) partitions stay in place so that you are still protected from chemical splashes/ fumes. "

Manufacturer's Response

Thank you for your review. We do our best to provide each customer with a safety device that will meet their needs for chemical usage and space requirements. The smaller hoods have one fan and the lower CFM output requires the oblong arm holes to ensure user safety. However, we do have models sizing from 39” up to 71” that include the “reverse sash” which allows the operator to either have a fully open sash from the work surface up to 12.5, or the ability to work in the middle zone of the hood (torso level) by simply rotating the sash down. This is all done without breaking containment, always guaranteeing the users safety.

The unit offers great convenience & reliability to our work, and "peace of mind" for safety.
Rating: 4.7

  • Application Area:Apply adhesion promoters and cleaning test surfaces with solvents.

"- We have had the "Toxicap 1200" for many years now (20+) with no mechanical problems. - We use the unit in a controlled environment room, so it needs to be reliable which it is, because a lot of the air in the room is recirculated. - It is right at my work station in this controlled environment room, so I don't have to go out to a different lab to use a "exhausting" fume hood. - Replacing the filters is a bit of a job due to the size/weight of the filters and where in the unit they are located (up high at the top), but the directions given with the replacement filters makes it straight forward, and in our situation, only needs to be done every couple of years due to the smaller quantity of solvents we use."

This ductless fume hood is the best I found and I find it very useful.
Rating: 4.3
"I have had this hood for about a week and it's been very efficient on removing chemical fumes. It's great that it has a sash that folds. However, I prefer the sash would slide down and up which would cost more. It has great features such as the hooks which holds the sash for easy access to inside. Overall, for a ductless fume hood, it's the best I found and I find it very useful."

"While we were looking for a new fume hood for our lab, we settled on the XLS483 from Erlab. The reason we decided on this model was the working area, broad range of filtration available, and flexibility due to it being ductless. Financially, this made tremendous sense because there was nothing that was needed from the facilities department to get the unit up and running. We were having issues with odor in the lab due to storage of certain chemical, and this has more than done the job. We would highly recommend this product as an alternative to standard ducted fume hoods."

"The product is very easy to use and we are pleased with the results that our Quality Team achieves. Brittany LangLois was very helpful in the after sales care in getting us a replacement filter in a timely manner. The value for the money is outstanding and I would recommend this product to others that need a small to midsize fume hood for their company."

  • Application Area:Academic Labs & Stockroom

"We purchased 27 of these hoods when we renovated some labs: 24 in Organic, 2 in Gen Chem and 1 in the Stockroom. We have been very pleased. We did purchase cup sink covers to help keep items out of the sink. I do wish the outside of the side windows of the hoods would have been washed before instillation."

"Hood has been running very reliably since installing it in 2013. Significant savings on HVAC and easy to change all the filters"

Review date: 18 Jun 2015 | Captair Smart Ductless Fume Hood

Provides total filtration of toxic gases, fumes, odors, and powders.

The Captair Smart ductless fume hoods are specifically designed to safely protect users when handling chemicals or powders that pose an inhalation risk. The configurable filtering system above the enclosure can be adapted to filter gases, solvents, powders, and particulates keeping the user and the lab protected by safely and efficiently recirculating air within the room and releasing purified air back into the room free of any toxic hazardous vapors or odors. No ductwork is required so installation is simple and the hood can be easily relocated. The depth of the hood can accommodate a variety of equipment including, rotary evaporators, bath circulators, or large balances.

Benefits of an Erlab ductless fume hood:

Independent test reports verifying filter efficiency, a published chemical listing, application questionnaire to validate filtration of the chemical process in the hood, certificate of validation for the chemicals used in the hood, and a safety program for the life of the hood.

Product features:

Can be outfitted with a carbon filter, a HEPA filter or both for your liquid, powder or liquid/powder applications. Each model includes a flow monitor, programmable timer, internal lighting, sampling port, air flow meter, and side panel utility ports for cables/fluid pipes.

Optional accessories:

Resin, stainless steel, or glass work surface, rolling cart with locking wheels, stationary workbench, transparent back panel, rear access door, particle pre-filter.
