Esco Ascent Ductless Fume Hoods provide protection to both laboratory personnel and the environment from toxic fumes and are quickly becoming a viable alternative to conventional fume hoods.
Unlike conventional fume hoods, these hoods filter out chemical fumes and recycle air directly back to the laboratory, providing energy savings, personnel and environmental protection, convenience as you do not have to deal with complicated ducting systems, and mobility, as ductless hoods are independent systems which do not require connection to extraction systems.
Esco ductless fume hoods are independently tested by INVENT-UK for the ability to filter contaminated air with efficiency and retention capacity as required by the British Standard BS 7989 and French Standard AFNOR NF X 15-211. Fume containment and airflow uniformity meet the requirements of ASHRAE 110-1995, BS 7258, EN 14175-3 and AFNOR NF X 15-203. The Esco combination of effective containment and safe carbon filtration opens new, applications for fume hood technology in laboratories of the 21st century.
