Lawrence Berkeley National Laboratory researchers have developed a new fume hood -- the Berkeley Lab High-Performance Fume Hood. In addition to cutting exhaust airflow requirements by 50-70%, the hood offers lower-cost installations than state-of-the-art VAV systems, and enhanced worker safety by introducing clean room-air into the operator's breathing zone. Further, installing the low-flow High-Performance Fume Hood can "free up" airflow capacity in laboratories starved for air.
