The Protector® Echo™ Floor-Mounted 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 floor-mount fume hood that requires NO DUCTING for easy installation! The Protector® Echo™ Floor-Mounted 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 Floor-Mounted 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.
