Fume Hood Testing
Do you have a lab hood that needs performance testing to ensure calibration? At Liberty Occupational Health Management, we offer fume hood performance testing consulting services to schools, manufacturing facilities, and a variety of other industries.
We test laboratory hoods in accordance with the ASHRAE (American Society of Heating, Refrigerating, and Air Conditioning Engineers) Standard 110-1995 to verify that the hood is performing with the appropriate velocity with the sash at different levels.
Our Fume Hood Testing services include:
- Direct reading quantitative velocity measurements
- Smoke tube testing
- Technical report documenting our findings
Does Fume Hood Testing matter?
The standard ANSI/AIHA Z9.5 – 1992 (American National Standards Institute and American Industrial Hygiene Association) recommends that laboratory fume hoods be tested annually. The Occupational Safety and Health Administration requires that fume hoods be properly functioning and specific measures be taken to ensure adequate performance (1910.1450(e)(3)(iii).
