Fume Hood Testing

  • For the most efficient operation, laboratory type fume hoods should be regularly tested under actual operating conditions.
  • Industry standards recommend that your fume hoods be put through a "Quick Test Procedure" and certified as operating properly at least once every six months. This test procedure should be performed by qualified professionals under "as used" conditions.
  • If hoods are found to be performing below acceptable standards, the reason(s) for that poor performance and ways to correct the problem should be reported.
  • That's the way we operate and that's why many laboratory managers have established a regular schedule of evaluation and maintenance through The PBC Group. What's more, when your fume hoods are either found to be operating properly or brought back to proper operating standards, they are marked "Certified" as accepted by inspection and regulatory officials.
