Perchloric Acid Fume Hood

The iQ Labs perchloric acid fume hood is designed specifically for procedures using this hazardous acid. Based on the LA-series superstructure by iQ Labs, this fume hood features a one-piece, cove-cornered Type 316 stainless steel interior with integral work surface and washdown system. Regular use of the washdown system cleanses the hood interior of perchloric salts, which drain into a full-length sloped trough contained in the work surface.
