Whether you are conducting scientific research in a biotechnology lab or teaching a chemistry lab class in an academic environment, Erlab’s advanced filter hood technology is designed to keep your environment safe. Unlike ducted fume hoods, Erlab’s filtered fume hoods capture and retain toxic gases, fumes, odors, and powders thus guaranteeing a safe environment for lab personnel while improving environmental sustainability.
Filtered Hoods are also considered environmentally friendly as they consume less energy and actually capture and retain harmful contaminants rather than just diluting them in open air. Studies have shown Filtered Fume Hoods to have a 94% lower operational carbon footprint when compared to traditional ducted fume hoods
Utilizing the power of Erlab’s advanced patented carbon filtration technology our filtered fume hood systems work independently of the building ventilation system and ducts. Multi-layer, redundant filtration retains a broad range of noxious chemical vapors while simultaneously improving the air quality of the lab. The exclusive sensor technology continuously evaluates air quality and provides alarms.
Additionally, systems can be remotely monitored through mobile devices apps or computers.
With millions of operational hours and over 50 years of proven safety, Erlab’s units provide uncompromising safety and compliance with stringent AFNOR NF X 15-211: 2009 filtration safety standards as endorsed by ANSI Z9.5-2012 for over 650 chemicals.
