Kewaunee has been setting the standard for
safety in fume hoods for many years. The experience and dedication
of our people have shaped the skills, methods and facilities that
produce today s standard of excellence in laboratory fume
Our Fume Hood Test Facility is located within our Statesville operations to allow our resident industrial hygienist, product development staff and manufacturing engineers to continuously perform extensive tests. We want to assure that Kewaunee s Supreme Air fume hoods protect the most vital part of any laboratory, the people who work there.
Computerization assists in the critical analysis of fume hood functions and performance. Qualitative and quantitative testing is executed in conformance to industry standards or customer requirements. Kewaunee Supreme Air Fume Hoods are tested to make certain they exceed the ASHRAE 110-1995, DIN 12 924, and BS 7258 performance standards.
The facility enables our technicians to operate fume hoods at different face velocities and observe optimum operating conditions. We are able to duplicate actual conditions under which your fume hood will be operating. This enables you to observe the effects of variations in room temperature and auxiliary air temperature on the operation of the fume hood being tested. In addition, airflow patterns can be seen through the use of visible fumes.
As an additional service to promote safety, Kewaunee's Fume Hood Test Facility is available to architects, engineers and end users to test the performance of any hood. To make an appointment to visit Kewaunee, contact your local sales representative. Tours of our showroom and manufacturing plants can also be arranged.
