Fume Hoods

 
 

ChemGARD®

Fume hoods are designed to provide personnel protection from toxic or volatile chemicals by continuously delivering airflow away from the user to the work area. Air is then filtered and/or treated by the building's exhaust system before exiting the facility. Fume hoods reduce potential exposure hazard to personnel, including contaminant concentrations near the edge of the sash. Fume hoods offer no protection to the product or environment. Specially designed fume hoods are required to provide protection from radiological hazards.

Both the ChemGARD® and ChemGARD-RI® (Radioisotope) fume hoods employ unique airflow characteristics within a streamlined, unobstructed work area to provide uniform, energy-saving operation, minimizing backdrafts, turbulence and eddy currents.

ChemGARD reduces chemical exposure to personnel by:

  • Substantially reducing roll effect (fluctuations in the airflow that may cause harm to the worker)
  • Offering a streamlined, unobstructed work area
  • Minimizing lingering concentrations above and behind the viewscreen
  • Reducing contaminant concentrations near the edge of the sash (window), and therefore reducing potential exposure hazard to personnel

Modified Products

At Baker, we pride ourselves on building relationships with customers that have high expectations and exacting specifications. To our customers, there is no such thing as a standard product. That's why we build our laboratory equipment around the way you work. Every Baker product is built for maximum customizability, from the petcocks to the plumbing, the control panel to the finish. Our can-do philosophy is that no laboratory should ever have to accommodate cookie-cutter equipment. 

Examples of the kinds of modifications our customers have requested include:

  • Touchscreen controls
  • Removable work surface with deep well to accommodate large cages or equipment
  • Customized cabinet installed on a sailboat for marine toxicology research
  • Microscope-ready cabinet with ergonomic viewing "bubble" around oculars
  • Dished clean bench worksurface
  • All-stainless construction with integrated pass-through (pictured above)

Contact Baker today to find out how we can accommodate your laboratory's unique needs.
