Seminar for fume hood performance

NEBB's fume hood performance testing seminar will provide an overview of Fume Hood Performance Testing in accordance with the NEBB Procedural Standard. It is scheduled for March 4-8, 2013, in Kansas City, Mo.


The National Environmental Balancing Bureau's (NEBB's) fume hood performance testing seminar will provide the attendees with an overview of laboratory HVAC concepts. This will include discussions of environmental safety enclosures, such as fume hoods, biological safety cabinets and other containment enclosures. Review of the various HVAC systems that are currently employed in laboratory design. The basic operation of fume hoods and other containment enclosures such as biological safety cabinets and their respective applications and features will be presented.

The NEBB Procedural Standard for Fume Hood Performance Testing will be reviewed with emphasis on the requirements for firm certification, certified professional certification, instrumentation and reporting requirements, and testing procedural requirements. Detailed presentations will be provided for the three primary fume hood performance tests: Airflow Velocity Tests, Airflow Visualization Tests and Tracer Gas Containment Tests. In addition to the presentations addressing the procedural requirements of these tests, hands-on demonstrations on operating fume hoods will be performed. The seminar will emphasize the testing procedures, reporting requirements and the evaluation of test results. 

Enrollment is limited and is on a first-come, first-serve basis. The testing and seminars will be held at Labconco from March 4-8, 2013, in Kansas City, Mo.
