Fume hoods typically protect only the user, and are most commonly used in laboratories where hazardous or noxious chemicals are released during testing, research, development or teaching. They are also used in industrial applications or other activities where hazardous or noxious vapors, gases or dust are generated or released. Since front side of a fume hood open to the room occupied by the user, and the air within the fume hood is potentially contaminated, the proper flow of air from the room into the hood is criticial to its function. Nikhtish Fume Hood’s design and operation is focused on maximizing the proper containment of the air and fumes within the fume hood.
Nikhtish Fume Hoods are designed to connect to exhaust systems that expel the air directly to the exterior of a building. Generally large energy is used to run fans that exhaust the air , and to heat, cool, filter, controland move the air that will replace the exhausted air, however Nikhtish Fume Hood and ventilation design system is focused on reducing the energy ud to operafume hoods and their supporting ventilation systems.
