Ductless fume hoods are highly technically advanced. Several improvements have been made to safety factors, monitors, alarms and engineering to ensure that ductless technology provides the same safety level or better than any ducted fume hood on the market. For example, the addition of electrostatic pre-filters, accessible from within the ductless fume hood, enhances safety for operators and increases the longevity of the main carbon filters.
Due to the design of the air circulation system, some manufacturers have also created high pressure filter clamping mechanisms to ensure proper filter seal and prevent bypass leakage. The design of the filter chamber also prevents contaminated air from contacting any internal cabinet mechanisms, further enhancing operator safety and contamination filtration capabilities.
