Commissioning and Fume Hood Performance Testing Services
Fume Hood Performance monitoring is
required by the OSHA lab standard. SAFELAB has a full range of
laboratory fume hood evaluation services which can be customized to fit
your Chemical Hygiene Plan. The services offered include face velocity
testing using real-time data acquisition of velocity data,
flow-visualization using smoke tubes to detect flow reversals and areas
of eddy currents, a high-volume smoke challenge to qualitatively
determine capture efficiency, and the ASHRAE 110 fume hood tracer gas
containment test - the most accurate and quantitative standardized
fume hood test available. Tests also include sash response and speed of
response testing for VAV fume hood systems.
Testing is important, but if the hood fails the test,
what then? SAFELAB provides fume hood optimization services and
will adjust the fume hood volume dampers and baffles to improve
performance and reduce energy costs.
In addition to these services, SAFELAB can
set-up and maintain a computerized database of fume hood performance
for your entire facility. Call SAFELAB for details.
