Chemical Fume Hood Chamber

Chemical Fume Hood Chamber

Fume Hood is an enclosure which is used to remove fumes and air borne particles at the contamination source. It is a kind of fume ventilation system whose major work is to remove smoke, dust mist and chemical fumes and restrict their entry into the environment. An Industrial Fume Hood consists of metallic sheet enclosure, steel or marble stone work bench, service fixture and electrical points. For fume exhaust, heavy duty blowers are fitted and remotely connected to the duct. Chemical fume hood, fume cupboard and fume closet are similar names of fume hood.

Key Features:

  1. Airflow: Designed to maintain a consistent inward airflow to contain and exhaust fumes.
  2. Sash: A movable front panel, often made of glass, which can be adjusted to protect the user and maintain airflow.
  3. Exhaust System: Connects to ductwork that removes contaminated air from the hood and expels it outside the building.
  4. Work Surface: Made from materials resistant to chemical spills and reactions.
  5. Lighting: Provides adequate illumination of the workspace inside the hood.
  6. Baffles: Panels that direct airflow to ensure even distribution and effective fume removal.

Fume Hood Applications

A fume hood's primary use is to remove fumes while reducing unwanted odors. It is utilized in industries where critical tasks are carried out, like low odor thresholds, solvent mixing, soldering, and working with volatile organics, powdered and flammable chemicals, various types of acids, and low odor thresholds, among others. All of these tasks produce hazardous fumes that are harmful to the environment, the operator, and those in the immediate vicinity. In this situation, a fume hood—which extracts fumes and expels them outside the workspace—becomes crucial for maintaining a suitable level of air quality and improving worker and laboratory safety.We are Indian makers of fume hoods. Fume hood systems made by Accumax India are resistant to all kinds of acid exposure

Working Chamber
Inner working chamber or area is an important part of fume hood which remains in direct contact of fumes, acids and different types of chemicals. We construct inner chamber walls of stainless steel (304 / 316) which is further coated with FRP layer if needed. The standard sizes of chambers are 2ft, 3ft, 4ft, 5ft, 6ft and 8ft etc.

Work Bench

The work bench of fume hood is either made of Stainless steel (grade 316) sheet or granite marble. If required it is also coated with FRP layer for double protection.


It is a glass window mechanism which can be moved up and down using sash track. Sash track is a system made of weights and a pulley. User can easily move sash up or down and keep at desired height during work.


For suction in fume hood we offer centrifugal blower assemble made of direct drive motor of any branded make.
