Hood, Downdraft & Workstation Filters
Made specifically for Hazard Technology Hoods, Downdraft Tables, and Workstations our various Filters protect from Hazardous fumes, vapors, and particles.
Filters should be changed regularly and according to your specific use and needs. Even without use, once a filter has been installed, it should be changed at least once per year. Failure to replace the filter increases the risk that your hood will not provide appropriate protection from hazardous materials.
Filter options include:
• Carbon (Charcoal) - rids the work area of hazardous fumes and vapors.
• HEPA - used for containment of particles - toxic powders, asbestos, lead, latent fingerprint powder, etc.
• Potassium Permanganate - safely absorbs and neutralizes formaldehyde and paraformaldehyde fumes.
• Polyester – generally used for dust prevention and as a pre-filter in combination with HEPA filters
*Filters may be stacked for mixed use applications*
