And When A Ductless Fume Hood Is The Right Type of Industrial Air Ventilation System For You
Regardless of profession or industry, the need for clean air is vital to a worker’s good health. Using an industrial air ventilation system will ensure that the air you and your workers breathe is clean and fresh and devoid of pollutants, but knowing which type of air cleaning product to use can be difficult without understanding the purpose behind the different systems.
Many industrial applications require the use of a fume hood to collect and exhaust hazardous fumes, dust, and particulates. Conventional ducted fume hoods connect to the facility’s existing ductwork and redirect contaminated air outside the building.
Ductless fume hoods also called mobile fume extractors and mobile filter systems, are all types of industrial air ventilation systems that are standalone units that filter pollutants out of the air and recirculate clean air back into a room. For these products, no existing ductwork is required to exhaust air outdoors.
Designed to be installed almost anywhere in a facility where air quality is a concern, mobile filter systems provide the same level of filtration as ducted units but offer a range of additional benefits, such as portability, ease of installation, and high efficiency.
Using a ducted fume hood makes the most sense in situations where large volumes of chemicals, VOCs, dust, and odors threaten a workplace environment.
Ductless fume hoods, by contrast, are typically needed to protect an individual or individuals in a self-contained workstation. Here are just some of the occupations that benefit from the use of portable air cleaners:
- Art restorers
- Nail Technicians
