Fume Hood Certification
The ventilation requirements outlined in the ANSI (American National Standards Institute) Z9.5 help employers identify, evaluate, and alleviate the potential hazards to protect their employees. At Ravensberg, Inc., we are proud to offer chemical fume hoods that meet the standards set in place, as well as participate in annual certifications.
Routine Fume Hood Testing
Fume hoods filter the air in laboratories by containing and exhausting air contaminants. The ventilation system keeps workers safe from toxic fumes that can cause injuries and ill health, thus reducing the amount of exposures. Therefore, it is crucial that the fume hood is working properly.
The certified technicians at Ravensberg, Inc., don’t take fume hood testing lightly. We are just as dedicated to ensuring the safety of your laboratory workers as you are! Therefore, we perform the following quantitative and qualitative tests to troubleshoot your fume hoods’ performance:
- Visualize the flow of fumes
- Measure the velocity of air at the face of the hood
- Determine susceptibility of any personnel to the hood
If we find any issues with your laboratory fume hood, we will work tirelessly to find the root cause and diagnose appropriate solutions. You can rest assured that your team is in good hands.
Maintain Productivity During Fume Hood Repairs
If our experienced technicians find issues with your fume hood’s performance, we will work with you to develop a program that allows your team to maintain their productivity while we repair. It’s our goal to work behind-the-scenes as efficiently as possible while allowing your employees to meet deadlines.
When you partner with us, you’ll receive a team of dedicated professionals that wants to protect you and your employees as well as help you succeed. Therefore, we wish to minimize disruptions in your day-to-day workflow as best we can.
Unique Fume Hood Repair and Maintenance Programs
It’s crucial to keep fume hoods in prime condition. You don’t want to risk exposing any of your employees to harsh airborne contaminants. With that in mind, we offer customized routine fume hood repair and maintenance programs at your convenience.
No two repair programs are the same, as each customer’s needs differ. Whether you need bi-annual troubleshooting and diagnostics or a backbone to fall upon when repair is required, we’ve got you covered. We’re happy to customize your plan, and keep your fume hood performing its best!
The purpose of certifying laboratory fume hoods according to the ANSI Z9.5 is to help ensure the safety of employees. Just as goggles and appropriate clothing are required to protect workers from hazardous solid or liquid materials, proper laboratory ventilation is key to keeping employees safe from airborne contaminants.
