bv seriesIroquois Hoods has four models of benchtop fume hoods designed for the efficient capture, containment and exhaust of contaminated air from the laboratory. Our BV-series hood, with its full airfoil perimeter and modular design, offers the performance and versatility for most laboratory applications. Following our tradition of designing function and durability into every hood, the BV comes equipped with a long list of standard features, making it an exceptional value and our most popular model.

Standard features include:
  • Modular design – large sub-assemblies for easy knockdown and re-assembly, also for later retrofits and add-ons
  • 16-gage galvanized steel pan superstructure for three-dimensional rigidity
  • Three-piece baffle system with adjustable upper and lower dampers to regulate lighter- and heavier-than-air gases
  • Airfoil around full perimeter of sash opening; 4”-wide side posts maximize working width of hood interior; electrical fixtures and plumbing controls mounted on front (non-bias) surface
  • Side post electrical and plumbing knockouts in standard or ADA configuration
  • Unique front panel louver design facilitates linear, non-turbulent transition between face opening and bypass air
  • Removable exterior side panels allow easy access to plumbing
  • Full frame, stainless steel vertical sash with integral stainless steel finger pull
  • Stainless steel sash guides, lower airfoil, duct collar
  • Sash/counterweight pulley system utilizing four 2-1/2”-diameter pulleys for unexcelled smoothness and durability; full-width counterweight featuring “Tilt-Lock” for additional safety
  • Fluorescent light fixture – 2’ or 4’ (bulbs not included) with vapor-proof light glass sealed to top panel

Optional equipment include:

  • Liner material – choice of nine non-asbestos materials
  • Auxiliary air bonnet – installs at front panel location to supply 70% of hood air from outside building. Requires its own blower and duct; moderate tempering of auxiliary air is recommended.
  • Electrical switches and receptacles – pre-wired using U.L. listed components and meeting N.E.C. and the most stringent local codes
  • Fluorescent or vapor-proof incandescent light fixtures; explosion-proof incandescent light fixtures for hazardous (classified) locations
  • Service fixtures – remote control water and gas fixtures with chrome or epoxy-coated (color-coded) outlets by WaterSaver™ ; pre-piped to meet the most stringent local codes. Use of hard copper tubing with soldered unions assures joint integrity from factory to service hookup.
  • Choice of sashes – vertical rising (standard); top-hung horizontal sliding; combination (vertical /horizontal); interlocking vertical (disappearing post)
  • Sash stop
  • Ceiling enclosure
  • Air velocity monitor/alarm
  • Automatic sash closer
  • Countertops – cast epoxy or stainless steel, dished, with service slots and sink cutout as specified
  • Cabinets – complete line of painted metal laboratory casework, including hood base, acid storage and flammable storage cabinets
