Fume cupboards

Fume cupboards designed by HibLab in accordance with EN 14175 are used inside the laboratory space as safety and personal protection extraction devices.

The purpose of these complex ventilation and air conditioning systems is to protect the user from hazardous substances inside the fume cupboard.

HibLab designs large personal protective equipment taking into account the fact that the equipment must be easy to maintain on the one hand and, on the other hand, that it must have the least possible impact on the environment. Its construction and development must take into account multiple safety regulations.

Individual protection fume cupboards

These individual protection devices use a ventilation system using an induced air flow through an adjustable working opening.

With an enclosure designed to limit the spread of airborne contaminants to operators or other personnel outside the device, providing mechanical protection and allowing controlled evacuation of airborne contaminants.

“A fume cupboard is a ventilated enclosure that meets the requirements specified in European Standard EN 14175-2

Key factors

  • Metal fume cupboard
  • Air collector or air outlet
  • Lighting located outside and not in contact with the fumes
  • Safety glass
  • Possible location of VAV valves, scrubbers, activated charcoal filters…

Fume cupboards or fume hoods require the use of a ventilation and air-conditioning system with the corresponding equipment for large flow rates to achieve a significant number of renewals per hour in the laboratory.

This personal protective equipment not only protects workers, but also prevents the release of hazardous chemicals into the environment. In this way, public health risks are reduced and environmental pollution is avoided.

Other extraction elements

In the wide range of extraction elements offered by HibLab, we can find localised extraction systems that aim to protect the user of the laboratory space from any contaminant released in a focus before it is dispersed throughout the work environment itself.

These individual extraction elements, as well as fume cupboards or fume hoods, adapt to any need or type of laboratory space.

For us, safety inside and outside the laboratory is essential, which is why this type of complex facilities represents a great challenge for the development of innovation, requiring exhaustive control and great flexibility.

Other fume extraction elements available:

  • Extraction arms
  • Extraction hoods
  • Atomic absorption hoods
  • Vertical and horizontal laminar flow cabinets
  • Biological safety cabinets
