Frontier® Perchloric Acid Ducted Fume Hood
Esco Frontier® Perchloric Fume Hood (EFP) is a ducted fume hood designed for routine handling of hot perchloric acid and hot nitric acid. However, it is not advisable for applications involving sulphuric acid, acetic acid, organic solvents or any combustible materials.
When heated, perchloric acid vaporizes and condenses to form metallic perchlorates on hood, duct, and fan components. In addition to being highly corrosive, condensed vapors can react with hood gaskets, greaser, and collected materials to form explosive perchlorate salts.
ESCO provides the most efficient and ergonomic line of stainless-steel containment including laminar flow, BSCs, isolators, fume hoods, air showers, and CO2 incubators.
