Protector XStream Laboratory Hoods

The Protector XStream Laboratory Hood takes containment, safety and energy savings to the extreme. This general chemical, high performance fume hood was independently tested and challenged well beyond the SEFA-1 standards. With a face velocity of 40 fpm and sash fully open, the Protector XStream was subjected to 50 fpm cross drafts, NIH protocol, and tracer gas measurements in the chest of the mannequin. In all scenarios, the Protector XStream allowed 0.00 ppm average level of tracer gas outside the fume hood. Although your safety officer will determine the actual face velocity setting for your laboratory, the ability of this hood to contain under these adverse conditions sets a new standard of safety.

Safety is foremost, but energy savings is equally impressive. Although face velocity is a factor, it’s the volumetric rate (CFM) that determines the energy consumption. Operating a 6' Protector XStream at 60 fpm face velocity, with the sash in its fully open position, requires only 690 CFM. Regardless of your desired operating face velocity, the Protector XStream yields the lowest required CFM of any hood.


Protector Premier Laboratory Hoods

Protector Premier Laboratory Hoods incorporate a sleek interior with a molded one-piece fiberglass liner, the signature feature of Labconco’s leading line of fume hoods since 1961. The one-piece liner of specially-formulated, fiberglass-reinforced polyester offers corrosion and fire resistance and easy clean up. Without seams, the interior has fewer points of deterioration for longer life.

These hoods are suitable for providing personal protection needed for general chemistry applications involving fumes and vapors. They meet the SEFA-1 standard of a low velocity, high performance hood and may be safely operated as low as 60 fpm. Choose from hoods designed to be used with a remotely-located blower or hoods that include a built-in blower — the only high performance hood with built-in blower available anywhere. Explosion-proof hoods with built-in blower are available for laboratories with potentially explosive/flammable atmospheres (Class 1 Div I or II).

Features (All Models)
By-pass airflow design

Eco-Foil™ Air Foil reduces energy consumption by 7-10% compared to flat air foils while its aerodynamic curve allows air to sweep the work surface for maximum containment. Clean-Sweep™ openings pull inflow air from under the air foil forcing air into non-turbulent air streams.

Cord-Keeper™ Slots on left and right side of air foil keep electrical cords out of the way

Glacier white powder-coated steel exterior is durable and corrosion-resistant

One-piece molded fiberglass liner and pre-set baffle(s) with flame spread less than 25 per ASTM E84

Tempered safety glass vertical-rising sash with powder-coated sash handle and Clean-Sweep™ openings

37.5" (95.3 cm) high sightline from the work surface to header panel allows taller users comfortable viewing while standing

Removable front and side panels, and front service access panels for access to plumbing and electrical wiring

Pre-wired LED lighting with vapor-proof design and ADA-compliant light and blower switches. Lighting rated to 50,000 hours. (Not on models with built-in explosion proof blower)

On models for use with remote blower, 12.8" ID exhaust connection(s)

Built-In Blower Models Feature

Built-in belt-driven, corrosion-resistant exhaust blower with adjustable sheave, molded thermoplastic housing and non-sparking, coated aluminum impeller

10.8" ID exhaust connection on 4' models; 12.8" ID exhaust connection on 5' and 6' models

Fixtured Models May Feature

Two pre-plumbed service fixtures with forged brass valves, lower right side with brass tubing for gas and lower left side wit copper tubing for cold water. Components for converting either or both fixtures to air and vacuum are provided. Inlet tubing is not provided.

One pre-wired GFCI electrical duplex receptacle on lower right side and, on 8' models only, one additional pre-wired GFCI electrical duplex receptacle on lower left side
