Nuaire FumeGard 162 Conventional Fume Hood


Durable Polypropylene Design
The FumeGard NU-162 is built primarily of stress-relieved polypropylene to which NuAire has added anti-oxidizing agents and UV stabilizers. This increases tensile strength and improves thermal characteristics. NU-162 has a single piece airfoil across the bottom of the work access opening. As the sash is lowered, the face velocity increases rapidly. Fumes, gases, vapors, aerosols, and particulate are drawn through vents by an exterior exhaust duct. Å“Double wall construction forms the plumbing chase for routing and connecting all services. This compartment is under negative pressure to minimize fume build-up.

Setting the Performance Standard
NU-162 FumeGard has been independently tested to meet and exceed the requirements of ASHRAE Standard 110-1995 and is SEFA 1-1992 certified.

Applications for All
NuAire polypropylene products have been used in Chemical Engineering, Electrical Engineering, Material Science, Environmental Toxic Analysis, Analytical Chemistry, Metallurgy, Water Treatment Facilities, Toxicology, Trace Metal Analysis, Marine Science, Waste Management, Soil Science, Semiconductor, and more.
