The BMC Thin Wall Fume Hood provides
an excellent low cost means of exhausting high
heat loads and non-hazardous fumes. The Thin
Wall design allows for maximum interior work area
and is well suited for installation on any counter
of 30" depth.
The exterior of the Thin Wall Fume Hood is 18 gage
steel with an epoxy powder coat finish, front posts
are stainless steel with a #4 finish. These components
are attached to a heavy gage internal framework.
This framework is welded and bolted together to provide
a ridged durable structure for the Thin Wall Hood.
The interior of the Hood is lined with Minerit,
a chemical resistant gray composition stone material.
The liner is attached to the internal framework with
the use of non-metallic fasteners. A lintel, of the
same material, restricts the air intake of the Hood
to the sash opening. This restriction allows you
to vary the face velocity of the Thin Wall Fume Hood
by changing the sash position. An interior baffle
system, also constructed of minerit, maintains a
uniform face velocity across the entire opening of
the sash. The upper portion of the baffle is adjustable
to compensate for high heat loads or light fumes.
The full view sash of the Thin
Wall Hood is framed with a chemical resistant black
PVC. It is glazed with 7/32" thick laminated safety glass and
has a single counterweight for easy up/down operations.
The interior of the Thin Wall Fume Hood is brightly
lit by a vapor proof incandescent light fixture,
bulb included. A single light fixture is provided
in 48", 60" and 72" models and two
fixtures are provided in the other models. Replacement
of the incandescent bulbs is accomplished from the
interior of the Hood. Switches, outlets, and remote
valves must be located on the front panel of the
Fume Hood base cabinet.
