American Auto-Matrix (AAM) is renowned worldwide for its American Made Building Automation, Laboratory, and Fume Hood
On the fume hood
exhaust, there has been many innovations and there is a vast choice of technology available with different impact on energy use:
Following proper safety precautions (including a chemical lab coat/apron, safety goggles, and thick butyl gloves), pour out a small amount (10 to 15 mL) of fuming nitric acid and fuming sulfuric acid into separate labeled vials while under the fume hood
Among them are both hot and cold water, a vented fume hood
, a dishwasher and dryer for handling glassware--and a small refrigerator that "takes care of those animals like sharks that are half dissected, where students need to come back to finish up, and so the rest of the faculty doesn't hang me [because of the smell]," says Keiser, who teaches sixth, seventh and eighth grade.
A wiper ring, together with a spring-loaded drip cup ensures that drips are virtually eliminated, while a fume hood
removes any vapours generated during filling.
The explosion occurred when a small quantity of chemicals, described as being the equivalent of a cup of liquid, overheated and reacted in a fume hood
during an experiment, according to an Air Force statement.
Patriot ductless fume hoods
feature the advanced technology of the Independence fume hood
and the cost-effective features of the AC4000 folding and sliding-sash ductless fume hoods
Shambaugh & Son, chosen by the University as its sole provider of automation and controls for construction, maintenance and energy conservation measures, will be responsible for providing the HVAC controls and the Fume Hood
Controls for the new facility currently under construction on the campus.
For instance, chemistry and special chemistry tend to use large quantities of volatile and toxic chemicals in processes that result in atomized, vaporized, or combusted discharges that are best performed in a closed environment such as a fume hood
and generous desk space--not to mention a fantastic mountain view from the desk
The process had been to soak the units in solvent for an extended period of time under a fume hood
, then remove the units from the bath and let them air dry.
Operator presence triggers increased fume hood
airflow to the pre-set ventilation for safe operation.
