Fume Hood Performance Testing Seminar – June 2023

June 6, 2023 - June 7, 2023

The seminar and exam will be held at Labconco in Kansas City, MO

Chemical fume hoods are one of the most important items of safety equipment present within the laboratory. It is vitally important they are properly used and maintained. Chemical fume hoods serve to control the accumulation of toxic, flammable, and offensive vapors by preventing their escape into the laboratory atmosphere. Fume hoods provide physical isolation and containment of chemicals and their reactions, thus serving as a protective barrier between laboratory personnel and the chemical or chemical process within the hood. Chemical fume hoods are an important means of protecting professionals from chemical exposure.

Learning Objectives

The seminar will provide attendees with an overview of laboratory HVAC concepts, including discussions of environmental safety enclosures, such as fume hoods, biological safety cabinets and other containment enclosures. Instructors will review various HVAC systems currently employed in laboratory design. The basic operation of fume hoods and other containment enclosures and their respective applications and features will be presented.

The NEBB Procedural Standard for Fume Hood Performance Testing will be reviewed with emphasis on the requirements for NEBB Firm certification, NEBB Certified Professional certification, instrumentation, as well as reporting and testing requirements. Detailed presentations will be provided for the three primary fume hood performance tests: Airflow Velocity Tests, Airflow Visualization Tests and Tracer Gas Containment Tests. Instructors will also provide hands-on demonstrations of these performance tests.

Proper testing procedures will be emphasized, along with reporting requirements and the evaluation of test results and will conclude with a session on trouble shooting fume hood issues and problem resolution.
