The Circulating Value of a Fume Hood

schoolhoodSeveral years ago, Colgate University developed an implementation and maintenance plan for the use of fume hoods among faculty, students, and researchers on the campus. Fume hoods are one of the best ways to ensure that a researcher, both graduate and undergraduate, can work with dangerous and reactive chemicals while minimizing their potential for exposure to these airborne chemicals. And as of late, fume hoods have become the main way for students to more freely work with chemicals and have some liberty in their research.

Colgate standards for maintaining fume hoods has typically included an annual evaluation, regular inspections, and labeled edges. Knowledge of the way a fume hood works has been crucial to the development of their maintenance plan. For example, Colgate says that researchers and educators should minimize foot traffic so as not to create any competing air currents. In other words, Colgate University has a full and working knowledge of fume hoods and their value in the classroom.
