.....The year 2009 marked a new beginning for HEMCO, we became an ISO 9001:2008 certified company. The International Standard Organization is recognized in the USA and 178 countries worldwide. HEMCO's management team has adopted the ISO quality management and procedures into our daily operating system. By continuing to improve manufacturing procedures & operations, it creates efficiency with employee involvement. "We say what we do and we do what we say" We strive to make our customers experience number 1, with our prompt service. Completing projects on time and within budget.
.....The next year, 2010, HEMCO's UniFlow SE Aire Stream, UniFlow LE & UniFlow CE fume hoods became U.L. classified to U.L.1805 standards for laboratory fume hoods & cabinets. Underwriter Laboratories have 69 labs and certified testing facilities in the US, and over 100 countries worldwide, with 6,600 employees to service the U.L. clients. U.L. has tested HEMCO HiPel composite fiberglass laminate for chemical & flame resistance and to NFPA 45 for plastics suitable to use in the laboratory. All of HEMCO's fume hoods are tested to meet U.L. standard 3101 for electrical circuitry & are listed and compliant to U.L.1805 -3101, CSA, and CE classifications.
.....Consider UniFlow Fume Hoods on your next lab project.

AireStream Laboratory Fume Hoods

SE AireStream
   

HEMCO offers a complete line of UniFlow laboratory fume hoods. Bench-mounted hoods in widths from 24” to 96”. Floor-mounted (walk-in) hoods from 48” to 144” wide and up to 96” deep. UniFlow fume hoods are designed for performance, user protection, & save 50% on reduced energy cost.

U.L., Underwriters Laboratory U.L. 1805 for fume hoods & cabinets, this classification covers construction, materials, flammability, & containment. U.L. 3101 electrical performance is tested using HIPOT testing, (high potential high voltage). HEMCO’s test facility is compliant to test fume hoods for U.L.1805 Classification

UniFlow SE Aire Stream 60 inch laboratory fume hood #45521 shown with optional service fixtures, plumbing and electrical, air flow monitor, work surface, base cabinet and accessories. HEMCO recommends fume hoods be equipped with an air flow monitor, per OSHA 29 CFR part 1910.
Advantages of UniFlow CAV By-Pass Fume Hoods
Cut Energy Costs up to 50%, by reducing the size of the blower &
ductwork required, while lowering installation costs.
• Important: by incorporating Sash Management 1-2-3, you are saving on overall energy costs, and protecting the fume hood user.   • The Sash Stop is designed for user protection and cfm reduction. Allows sash to open to a maximum of half open, providing up to 50% energy savings.
1. Recommended that hoods be used with sash 1/2 open with face velocity of 80-100 fpm. Sash stop can be located to suit. With lower sash closed and upper sash raised to the 1/2 open position the supply air cfm & static pressure are as noted.   • Sash at full open is primarily designed for set-up of equipment and maintenance. Fume hood users should wear personal safety protection equipment, consult Lab Safety Officer.

2. Sash in full open position should be for setup of apparatus & maintenance service only. If design opening is at 1/2 open at 100 fpm, face velocity at full open would be approximately 50 fpm. Therecommended face velocity for efficiency & safety is 80-100 fpm. Lower face velocity may compromise user safety.

  • HEMCO recommends 10-12 room air changes per hour for the health & safety of personnel. Example 10’ X 20’ room 10’ high receiving 10 room air changes per hour requires 350 cfm.
3. When hood is not in use, keep sash in closed position.   • At an average utility rate of $7.00 per cfm, a typical annual savings on a 4’ fume hood would be $2705.00 and on a 6’ fume hood $4067.00, by using Sash Management 1-2-3., Sash Stop at 50% open.
• Sash stops are standard on U.L. Classified Fume Hoods    
Traditional Fume Hoods vs UniFlow Fume Hoods
Innovation is the Difference Between the Same Perspective and an Entirely New one.
   
  The 1925 Ford Tri-motor, featured all metal construction, no wood. Its fuselage and wings were constructed of corrugated sheet metal, for strength. These aircraft were well-designed, and reliable (for the era).   The Boeing 787 Dreamliner features aerodynamic composite construction. Composites have a higher strength to weight ratio, which helps to make the 787 a lighter more energy efficient aircraft.
Traditional Fume Hoods   1. Fully Assembled Fume Hoods   UniFlow Fume Hoods
 

Traditional Fume Hood 60” wide Constructed of formed painted sheet metal panels & held together with sheet metal fasteners & brackets. Chemical resistant interior liner panels with sharp corners sealed with caulking.

Customer Comments:
Hoods, based on the nature of the products we analyze (sulfur chlorides, sulfuric acids, oleums), last about two to three
years. At the end of three years, the chemicals have corroded both the exterior steel panels and the internal steel frame work of the metal hoods. We replaced them eight years ago with HEMCO UniFlow fiberglass fume hoods the installation was easier and we have had no repairs since then. We are building a new facility, and we plan to install HEMCO hoods.
