The Protector® Echo™ Filtered Fume Hood combines the trusted filtration of Erlab’s Neutrodine® Unisorb Filter with the quality, innovation and energy-efficient fume hood designs of Labconco's unparalleled engineering to create an adaptable fully-featured fume hood that requires NO DUCTING for easy installation! The Protector® Echo™ Filtered Fume Hood has a by-pass design and features many defining characteristics of Labconco Protector Hoods including the patented Eco-Foil™ Air Foil with Clean-Sweep openings, fiberglass-reinforced panel liner, fully closing sash, electrical receptacles and service fixtures.
The Neutrodine Unisorb Filter has been tested and found efficient on over 500 chemicals, and may last 2 years or more before requiring replacement. Because these filters allow the simultaneous handling of solvents, acids and bases, the Protector Echo may be used for a broad range of general chemistry fume hood applications. Plus, the use of these filters offers an eco-friendly solution to exhausting chemicals into the atmosphere. Options include acid or formaldehyde sensors or HEPA only for applications requiring particulate protection.
GFH Filtration Technology allows the Protector Echo Filtered Fume Hood to perform well beyond the SEFA 9-2010 DH III definition. User safety is maintained through numerous built-in features that constantly monitor and prevent unsafe conditions without relying on user practices or modifications. These safeguards include a sensor package that detects primary filter breakthrough of solvent and acid fumes, laboratory air quality, sash position and temperature, audio/visual alarms, and intelligent filter indication of type and status to prevent saturated filters being re-installed. The control box is conveniently located on the front of the hood and can be controlled by an app on the user’s phone.
