Fume Hood Series Sample Color Chart
Below is a representation of colors that are available. This does not limit the colors available
however, as E-Series hoods can be painted to match any color required. Colors may vary
from the printed ink colors. Actual metal color samples are available upon request.

What makes LEM With all of the hood choices available today I get asked this
question frequently. All hoods must be ASHRAE and UL-1805
and the E-Series certified just to be considered for a laboratory. So what makes
our hood different? The simple things. The things that someone
line of fume hoods should have done years ago. Things like, including light bulbs
with the hood and being able to change the bulbs easily from
different? inside the hood. A standard round 10” duct collar to easily
match up to most

needs of the high performance or “low velocity” hoods. What

How a Fume Hood Works

The fume hood is an important safety device in any laboratory. At Laboratory Sash Positions
Equipment Manufacturers, we believe that the more you understand about how
a fume hood operates, the easier it will be to choose the right one for
your application.
  There are many variables involved in exhausting the fumes that are
generated inside the fume hood.
  First, there must be an adequate pull of air, known as face velocity,
from the hood through the ductwork. Face velocity is measured in feet
per minute (FPM) at the vertical sash plane.
  In order to maintain consistent face velocity, a certain quantity of air,
or exhaust volume, is required. Exhaust volume is measured in cubic
feet per minute (CFM).
  Sash position also affects face velocity. The sash is a transparent, movable
panel of safety glass, which is set in the fume hood face. It provides access
to the hood interior during set-up procedures and minimizes contact with
dangerous fumes when the hood is being operated with the sash lowered.
  Airflow patterns into the hood are influenced by the airfoil. Located just
beneath the sash, the airfoil decreases turbulence of the air entering the hood.

Baffle Positions
Located across the inside rear of the hood, the baffle controls airflow patterns
through the hood. Baffle panels are located in a position determined to be
most effective for the application. LEM fume hoods are constructed and
tested with safety and simplicity in mind. That is why the baffles are non-
adjustable and fixed. The hoods have been tested for both heavier and lighter
than air applications. This eliminates the potential risk caused by having to
adjust baffles depending on the application, which allows for a greater degree
of safety compared with hoods that use adjustable baffles, for two reasons:
First, the researcher doesn’t need to know the baffle position required for the
experiment; and, second, doesn’t need to know the chemical
characteristics in order to feel confident that the hood will safely
contain the effluents being used.

The E3-Series: Slim Line
A thin wall design with expanded workspace and wider openings

The E3-Series is a thin wall hood with ­slimmer


front posts to expand workspace.
  The superstructure is designed to remove all
fumes, both those heavier and lighter than air.
Baffle positions are fixed for both safety and
consistent and complete containment of fumes
at all sash positions.
  The interior of the hood is lined with a UL
certified poly resin board. The exterior is
fabricated of cold rolled steel and finished
with acid wash and powder coat epoxy paint.
The solid frame galvanized steel construction
provides both stability and convenient “knock
down” ability to improve flexibility. Posts are
2 1⁄2” (64 mm) wide.
  T-8 fluorescent lights and bulbs are
included standard. A round 12” standard
duct collar is included to easily match up
U.L. 1805 Classified
to most existing ductwork without costly
additional “transition” pieces.
  The standard vertical sliding sash features
a full-length finger lift. The sash panels are
7/32” safety glass. The sash counterbalance is
a single weight at the rear of the hood, attached
with a 7 x 7 aircraft-type nylon coated cable.
The .125” diameter cable rides on quiet and
corrosion resistant nylon and stainless steel
ball bearing pulleys.
  Because the slimmer posts remove the option
for wiring and plumbing in the posts, plumbing
services must be “deck mounted” on cabinet;
and electrical services must be mounted on the
face of the cabinet. (See c­ abinet options
on page 34.)
  LEM E3 hoods include standard equipment.
Standard sizes are 36”-96” with custom sizes
available upon request.

The E-Series Air Chamber System–an option for all hood styles
Optional feature reduces energy costs by up to 70 percent

The LEM Air Chamber system reduces energy costs for


heating and cooling to any fume hood by as much as 70
percent. This is achieved by capturing air from outside the
laboratory and supplying it to the hood through a supply
duct in the Air Chamber. An additional, separate blower and
duct are required for the air supply.

Increased Flexibility
The Air Chamber can be used on any E-Series hood and
coordinates with all E-Series standard features in design,
manufacturing, construction, finishing, and fixtures.

To order the Air


Chamber option,
include the letters
“AC” after the
width dimension.

hood performance, functioning in unison with the room’s HVAC design

Duct & Blower Configurations

Individual System
This configuration is the simplest approach to exhausting a fume
hood and can be used with one or more fume hoods. Installation and
material costs are higher with individual blower systems, but they are
easier to balance and the failure of one blower will not affect use of
remaining hoods.
  Although LEM can provide the blowers specifically made for fume
hood applications, ductwork and plenum systems are typically bid and
installed as part of the mechanical portion of the building contract.

Manifold System
Manifold systems are popular in many settings where
multiple fume hoods are in use. Each hood is exhausted into
the exhaust duct plenum and removed by a single, centralized
blower.
  Because multiple hoods share a common blower and
ductwork, manifold systems often cost less to install than
individual systems. The HVAC professional is challenged,
however, to insure that adequate makeup air is available for
each hood, regardless of the number of hoods in operation
at any given time, and that the total room HVAC system is
properly balanced. A backup blower is advisable so that, in
the event of a failure of the primary blower, all fume hoods
will not be disabled at once.
  Although LEM can provide the blowers specifically made
for fume hood applications, ductwork and plenum systems
are typically bid and installed as part of the mechanical
portion of the building contract.

IMPORTANT: Perchloric acid hoods should ONLY be used


with an individual system. Both individual and manifold
configurations can be designed for either constant volume or
variable air volume (VAV) systems.
