Fume Hoods Certification

May 07 2009

Esco is pleased to announce that the Frontier Acela Fume Hood (EFA), 4’, 5’ and 6’ widths, have been certified by Tintschl Engineering AG, Germany to the stringent European Standard EN14175-3.

Frontier Acela combines key aspects of the patented Berkeley Fume Hood technology with unique Esco innovations, to deliver the industry’s premium fume hood solution. EN certification further affirms Esco’s commitment to providing customers with hoods that can achieve maximum containment at low face velocities, thus saving energy without compromising safety.

Selecting the Frontier Acela Fume Hood will reap benefits for all stakeholders involved. Health and safety authorities will benefit from: ASHRAE 110 and EN14175 tested at face velocities down to 0.3m/s (60fpm) ; built in sash-lock and creep-down system ensure operator safety; and optional Sentinel XL Airflow Monitor.

Facility owners can operate at 0.3m/s (60fpm) at 457mm (18”) operating height and will see energy savings of up to US$5,735 annually for each fume hood. Laboratory designers and architects will benefit from a neutral colour scheme; futuristic design; and detailed architectural specifications and drawings.

Installation and service personnel will see advantages in robust tri-wall side pan construction; factory-fitted service fixtures are pre-plumbed; chain and sprocket sash; and a wide range of field-installed accessories.

Laboratory personnel will benefit from certified safety; precisely tuned aerodynamics; high sight line; angled front; and excellent ergonomics.
