    Abstract - (Show below) - (Hide below)

    Specifies safety requirements for laboratory fume cupboards and test methods to determine their performance. Siting and maintenance requirements are specified and requirements and guidance for the use of fume cupboards are included.

    Scope - (Show below) - (Hide below)

    This Standard specifies safety requirements for fume cupboards and methods of test to be used to determine their performance. Appendix A provides the method for conducting a smoke test for a fume cupboard and Appendix B provides the method for determining face velocity. Appendix C describes typical materials used in the construction of fume cupboards and includes recommendations and requirements on material suitability.Fume cupboards covered by this Standard are intended primarily for use in general chemical operations but may be used for the special applications set out in Appendix D, provided that the additional relevant features described therein are incorporated.Recirculating fume cabinets (which recirculate air and do not extract to the outside atmosphere) are not included in this Standard (see AS/NZS 2243.9).NOTE: Appendix E provides recommendations for the procurement of a fume cupboard. Appendix F provides an example checklist and report form for compliance testing and Appendix G lists documents relating to the subject of this Standard.
