Frontier® Acela™ Fume Hoods

OPERATOR SAFETY:

  • Unique Hot Zone Baffles capture fumes quickly.
  • Tri-wall construction and chain-and-sprocket sash system for maximum durability.
  • When the sash is raised above 18 inches, it will automatically and gently fall back to the appropriate level, ensuring operator safety. This is due to Esco’s unique “Creep-down Mechanism”.
  • Constant volume / high performance concept eliminates the need for complex VAV systems.
  • Delivers outstanding containment even down to 60fpm face velocity (in accordance to the ASHRAE-110 test protocols) offering substantial energy savings vs. conventional fume hoods (up to 40%) and maintains high security even when airflow fluctuations occur from the preset value.
 

OPERATOR BENEFITS:

  • The tapered fiberglass exhaust collar reduces airflow turbulence, static pressure loss, noise level and increases face velocity uniformity.
  • Perfect Pitch Profile™. The gentle pitch of the hood profile enhances visibility and operator ergonomics.
  • Sash key-lock available to keep sash in place at full open position for equipment loading, or at full close position to restrict access into hood.
  • 5-degree front slope for user comfort and improved ergonomics.
