  • Perfect for containing contaminants produced during benchtop processes, such as milling, powder analysis and packaging
  • 99.99% efficient HEPA filter (rated @ 0.3µm particles); removes submicron particles generated in the work area to preserve clean conditions in the lab or cleanroom environment (order exhaust fan/filter unit separately)
  • Average air flow: 650+ CFM (1095 m3/hr) under filter load
  • Select enclosure in several materials and depths
  • Price includes fluorescent illuminator

This Ventilation Filtration Hood removes sub-micron particles, aerosols and fine dust generated inside an enclosure, allowing safe exhaust release into the surrounding lab or other clean environment. The HEPA fan/filter is 99.99% efficient at removing particles as small as 0.3µm, making it ideal for aerosols and fine dust generated inside an enclosure. An internal baffle system produces uniform face velocity. The low vibration level ensures minimal disruption of high-precision assembly or test procedures performed inside the hood.

NOTE: The Particle Exhaust Fan/Filter Unit is not intended for use with chemical fumes, biohazards or compounds that can produce potentially toxic dust.

Hood Provides a Versatile Enclosure Configured to Your Requirements
Terra manufactures hoods out of several materials to meet a broad range of chemical and cleanliness requirements.

Lightweight acrylic affords full visibility of work in progress. Static-Dissipative PVC eliminates static charges and the particles they attract, making it ideal for the most critical contamination requirements. Durable powder-coated steel or 304 stainless steel provides outstanding durability and resistance to most cleaning solvents.

All hood materials are housed in a stainless steel frame for strength and easy cleaning. Hoods include a transparent, hinged front access sash to shield workers from particulates and aerosols generated in the work area.

A Status Indicator Light comes standard on the Whisperflow Exhaust Hoods. This light glows continuously to show FFUs are turned on, and flash to indicate that FFUs are turned off. It is an easy way to check hood operation from across the room.
