Updraft and Overhead hoods, completely or partially enclose the process or contaminant generation point.
A Complete Enclosure would be a sealed “box” or similar type of configuratin where only minimal openings exist and the contaminated air is sucked up and away. The enclosing hood is preferred wherever the process configuration and operation will permit.
A Partial Enclosure would be an “open box” (i.e.: with the lid cut off). An inward flow of air through the enclosure opening will contain the contaminant within the enclosure and prevent its escape into the outside work environment. If complete enclosure is not feasible, partial enclosure should be used to the maximum extent possible.
Here are some general design velocities when using "RECEIVING" Hoods: Please contact a Lev-co representative
The LEV-Hood is a pre-engineered ventilation hood that completes with filters and fan. This ''Plug & Play'' design is ready to mount as a "free-hanging" system above a welding cell or work table and will collect/filter the smoke, fumes generated from a variety of industrial processes. The cleaned air is then re-circulated to the plant delivering additional energy savings and environmental benefits.
Most Systems can be put in position with minimal mechanical installation time, typical 2 hours/2 men per hood. Electrical motor and lighting connections are also required.
This is an excellent solution when at-the-source capture of pollutants is not possible, practical or convenient. Simply put this is a nice quiet efficient and effective air filtration system.
A high efficiency, 3-stage filtration system. The first stage of filtration is a 2" baffle filter used for spark arrestance. The 2nd stage is a 40% pleated pre-filter that will trap dust and larger particles . The 3rd stage is a 95% micro-glass multi-pocket bag filter that will remove smoke and other sub-micron size particles from the air.
