The Jamestown bench top fume hood combines the newest innovations in fume hood design with accepted architectural practices to achieve the most unique approach to fume containment in the world. Many of our standard features cannot be found on other fume hoods. The Jamestown fume hood most outstanding attribute is safety.
Safety from Fumes
Current fume hood test, evaluates the containment of fume hoods under three conditions:
- Zero movement (relatively static conditions)
- Rapid sash movement
- Perimeter containment around the airfoil, sash stop and side posts
Safety from Fire
One of the most feared accidents that can occur inside a fume hood is an uncontrolled fire. The Jamestown bench top fume hood has a full metal superstructure and a steel top to afford an extra layer of protection against the collapse of the fume hood interior during a fire plus a tempered glass sash and view pass that resists thermal cracking up to 2500 Fahrenheit higher than safety glass.
Safety from Sash Failure
A typical sash and counterweight system uses galvanized steel or stainless-steel cables to connect the sash to the counterweight. If these cables fray, snap or pull loose from their connecting points, the elevated sash and counterweight could come crashing down. A fume hood sash may weigh up to 150 pounds. The Jamestown fume hood sash system is chain driven not cable driven. This counterbalancing system has been tested to 1,000,000 cycles without failure. It carries a lifetime guarantee. Aside from these significant safety features, the Jamestown Bench Top also is a very user-friendly safety device with the following features:
Fingertip sash operation – the rugged chain driven counterweight system has the smoothest operating sash in the industry.
View pass system – a dual purpose panel that allows the same bypass function as the traditional louvered metal panel. Events inside the fume hood can be monitored all the way from the worktop to the roof via the smoked glass transparent panel.
Aerodynamic sash handle – sash handle style that aids in the containment of fumes during rapid sash movement.
Stainless steel top and bottom airfoils are standard – The bottom fume hood airfoil in particular has always been subject to scratching and corrosion. In the Jamestown, top and bottom airfoils are type 304 stainless steel as standard for increased chemical resistance. Also standard are large cord pass-through at both airfoils ends.
