Frontier® Perchloric™ Fume Hoods

Esco Frontier Perchloric Fume Hood is designed to be used when handling hot perchloric acid, hot nitric acid, or for routine use of perchloric acid. Do not handle sulfuric acid, acetic acid, organic solvents, or any combustible materials in perchloric acid hoods.

This specialized fume hood is built with stainless steel internal surfaces (including the work surface) and a wash-down system of water spray nozzles dispersed throughout the hood. When heated, perchloric acid vaporizes and condenses on hood, duct and fan components. In addition to being highly corrosive, condensed vapors can react with hood gaskets, greases and other collected materials to form explosive perchloric salts and esters. Therefore stainless steel surfaces enhance cleanability and a water wash-down removes any explosive compounds that might have formed on the internal surfaces.
