Fume Hood and Vent Hood Testing and Calibration

Posted on July 13, 2021

We are excited to announce that we have recently added Fume Hood and Vent Hood Testing and Calibration to our service offerings. Many industries use Fume or Vent Hoods to protect operators or employees from noxious fumes or hazardous exhaust.

Our ISO/IEC17025:2017 accredited testing and calibration process includes the following to ensure proper functionality and safety of the hood:

  • Measuring air flow and cross draft velocities with a calibrated anemometer
  • Air flow visualization testing performed with a laboratory grade smoke gun
  • Laminarity and air volume calculations

Due to the safety considerations with Fume Hoods and Vent Hoods, inspection and testing should be done on a regular basis.
