Safety in the Science Classroom: Chemistry Fume Hoods and Air Cleaners

  To improve safety in the science classroom, educational facilities should utilize Fume Hoods and Air Cleaners. Fume Hoods, such as Ductless Fume Hoods or Exhaust Hoods, provide the first layer of defense against harmful fumes and particulate created from experiments, demonstrations, or studies. Chemistry Fume Hoods can also help protect from other hazards such… Learn More

Rotary Evaporator Fume Control

Rotary evaporators can release hazardous solvent fumes while using or cleaning the system, or while emptying the solvent trap (UCLA, 2010). Operators should consider fume inhalation risks and utilize respiratory engineering controls, such as a ductless fume hood or exhaust hood, to protect their safety and the overall laboratory’s safety. What are Rotary Evaporators? Rotary… Learn More
