People working in laboratories rely on proper performance of fume hoods to protect them from exposure to hazardous airborne chemicals. The ASHRAE 110 Method of Testing Performance of Laboratory Fume Hood has been used for more than 25 years and the results have been used to improve fume hood design, lab safety and energy efficiency. This session will review the results of Research Project 1573 for a new tracer gas option that is more environmentally conscious, discuss upgrades to the ASHRAE 110 Standard and also discuss other fume hood safety testing protocols from around the world.
