Labconco Corp.'s Protector XStream laboratory fume hood is a high-performance fume hood that performs well at low air volumes.
The hood doesn't rely on restricted sash opening, airflow sensors, electronic controllers, mechanical components, or additional fans; instead it uses features that work together to reduce the concentrations of contaminants in areas behind the sash opening and near the user's breathing zone. An upper dilution air supply bathes the sash interior with clean air, eliminating chemical fumes along the sash plane. The ergonomic Eco-Foil air foil with CleanSweep openings reduces energy consumption from 7 to 10%. A rear downflow dual baffle system directs airflow in non-turbulent laminar flow air streams to the back of the hood to counteract the tendency for air to roll inside the hood. The containment-enhancing sash handle sweeps airflow into the hood with minimal turbulence.
