Lab research and analysis benefit greatly from specialized equipment that keeps potentially hazardous materials away from the technician or student. Laboratory fume hood and exhaust systems allow for lab research to be performed safely on materials that may emit vapors, gases, and dust that are toxic, flammable, or corrosive.

Ravensberg is pleased to provide fume hood and exhaust systems for laboratory settings in need of such equipment. As a dealer for Air Master Systems, we work to provide quality products that allow research without putting individuals at risk of dangerous exposure.

What Are Fume Hood and Exhaust Systems?

A chemical fume hood is an enclosed workspace from which a researcher or student may work with hazardous materials and not be openly exposed to them.

Paired with either a ducted or ductless exhaust system, it allows for safe handling of dangerous materials without exposing the technician to harm in the process of their work. A ducted hood filters the laboratory air and funnels it outside to prevent contamination, whereas a ductless hood system utilizes a certified filter to return the clean air back to the space.

Before scientists and researchers had safe environments to test and evaluate substances, they would use an open lab that could expose themselves and others in the area to dangerous materials. Today, technology has evolved to allow for controlled research and experimentation within a fume hood.

Laboratory fume hoods are paired with an exhaust system to take away the potential fumes from the environment in which they are housed, while allowing the technician safe access to substances. In addition, there are systems that do not require the exhausting of vapors into the outside environment; rather, they use an in-house filtering system, eliminating the need for added ductwork and fan housings. Whatever your needs, we will provide the best lab hood for your space.
