ASHRAE 110 Fume Hood Testing

The ASHRAE 110 standard is used by fume hood manufacturers during development and design (As Manufactured testing), during installation to determine criteria for fume hood performance in a new laboratory (As Installed testing), and as a diagnostic tool to identify problems in an existing fume hood / HVAC system installation (As Used testing). Beyond the initial installation testing, OHSA also requires Fumes Hoods to be tested annually (every 12-months) to ensure the safety of employees while working within a fume hood.

 

The following testing parameters are included in ASHRAE 110 Fume Hood Testing:

  • Tracer Gas Containment Test, Velocity Profiling, and Smoke Pattern

  • Cross Draft & Variable Air Volume Testing

  • Sash Motion Containment Testing
