Balance Hood

The BH550 (previously WS110) is a dual purpose extraction hood that protects personnel from nuisance media powders and also protects the balance from air turbulence.

The standalone unit is designed to easily fit onto most benchtops and is ideally suited for those in-between applications which are too small to necessitate a fume cupboard but benefit from improved containment.  It has very low air flow (20m3/h) and can be user configured.

The unit comes flat packed and is very easy to assemble.

The Analytical front panel has a clear acrylic lift off front panel with arm access holes at the bottom. Usually chosen for use with analytical balances.

The Top Pan front panel has a clear acrylic lift off front panel with arm access holes halfway up the sides. Usually chosen for use with Top Pan balances.
