Over Bench Fume Hoods for Benches

These three models of fume hoods were developed to respond to different needs, requiring only a bench.



Different needs on a bench

In addition to presenting different functionalities, these fume hoods also have different materials that give them the necessary characteristics to respond to the laboratory work in question. All they need is a bench where they must be placed, thus taking up less space than a conventional fume hood. 

Fume hood developed for laboratory work that poses a high risk to users, being a fume hood made up of two distinct areas; the outer body and the inner body. The outer body supports the inner body and is made of steel sheet powder coated with epoxy-polyester resins. It also supports the services that are located on the sides. The inner body is the part in direct contact with chemical vapors and is made of laminated compact. This is the premium model in the range which also has a version with glazed sides and a central version with glazed sides, deflectors and glass fume hood bottom.
Also referred to as acrylic fume hood, it is a fume hood developed for small laboratory work and with small amounts of chemicals, being a overbench fume hood divided into 4 parts. It is in the structural body that we find the levelers that allow the work surface to be always level. The hinged front window with hinges with a maximum opening of 180º. It is a very versatile over bench fume hood.
VWS fume hood developed for small jobs and small amounts of chemicals. Built entirely in cold-rolled sheet steel with a glazed window. It is a very versatile over bench fume hood, however, it does not present any possibility of integrating systems such as Cairo or even services such as PMMA, therefore, the simplest over bench fume hood that Industrial Laborum Ibérica presents.

Appointment CE according to the directives: 2014/30 / EU (Electromagnetic compatibility) and 2014/35 / EU (low tension).

Hotte Cairo comes with constant air volume (VAC), however it can be equipped with VAV (variable air volume) system, which improves the performance of the hood as well as its energy consumption in general.

At Industrial Laborum Ibérica we produce products adapted to our customers and the types of laboratory projects they develop, hence we present different types of materials that adapt to their needs. 

Our range of bench hoods has different materials for the different components:

 — Cairo standard version: outer frame in sheet steel and inner frame in phenolic compact. 

 — Cairo glazed version: outer frame in sheet steel and inner frame in phenolic compact. Sides in polymethyl methacrylate, hood bottom in glass or polymethyl methacrylate and work surface in stainless steel or ceramic stoneware.

 — VWS: structure and work surface in sheet steel.




On the Cairo bench top hood, the controls and technical sheets are present on the side panels of the equipment.

The place where the hood is installed must have a magnetic circuit breaker to ensure that if there are other equipment connected to the differential switch, they do not lose power in the event that the hood needs to be serviced.
