Class I Hood Certification
EOC1 offers certification and repair of Class I Hoods as part of our comprehensive range of services. Our technicians are qualified to perform Class I Hood repairs, certifications, and/or troubleshooting.
Class I Hoods provide personnel and environmental protection but no product protection. These hoods are commonly used to enclose specific equipment (e.g. balances) or procedures (pharmaceutical powder weighing) that can potentially generate a hazardous release. Class I Hoods are either ducted (connected to the building exhaust system) or un-ducted which allows recirculated filtered air back into the room.
Class I Hoods have many specific uses and are generally named based on the procedure or use of the enclosure. Example of Class I Enclosures may include:
- Bulk Powder Enclosure or Hood
- Balance Hood and Equipment Enclosures
- Ductless Fume Hood
