Fume Cupboard Commissioning In The UK

That's why we offer nationwide, professional fume cupboard commissioning and testing services for ducted fume cupboards and ductless filtered fume cupboards, serving laboratories, educational institutions, and industrial facilities across the UK.

New Fume Cupboard Commissioning: Setting the Standard for Safety

Commissioning a new fume cupboard is not just about getting it operational; it's about establishing a crucial baseline for future performance and safety. Our expert engineers meticulously follow manufacturer specifications to configure and test your fume cupboard, including:

  • Precise air volume and fan speed settings: We use calibrated instruments to ensure your cupboard maintains the optimal airflow rate for safe containment, as specified by the manufacturer.
  • Damper and inverter adjustments: We optimise damper and inverter settings for efficient, consistent operation and energy savings.
  • Comprehensive safety checks: We conduct rigorous tests to verify proper functionality of all safety features, electrical systems, and alarms.
  • Certification: Upon successful completion, we issue a commissioning certificate, ensuring your fume cupboard meets all regulatory standards.

Recommissioning Fume Cupboards for Ongoing Peace of Mind

Any modification to your fume cupboard or its ventilation system, such as relocation, fan replacement, or new ducting, necessitates recommissioning to ensure continued safety and performance. Our team provides comprehensive fume cupboard recommissioning services, including:

  • Recalibration and adjustments: We meticulously reconfigure and calibrate your fume cupboard to account for the changes, ensuring optimal airflow and containment.
  • Updated safety checks: We conduct all necessary safety checks to guarantee the integrity of your modified system.
  • New certification: We issue an updated test certificate, reflecting the current configuration and performance of your fume cupboard.

COSHH - The Control Of Substances Hazardous to Health 2002

The Control of Substances Hazardous to Health (COSHH) 2002 regulations prioritise employee protection from exposure to hazardous substances, particularly in laboratory environments. Here, fume cupboards with their integral local exhaust ventilation (LEV) systems play a crucial role in risk mitigation.

COSHH Regulation 9 mandates proactive maintenance for effective LEV control. This includes maintaining fume cupboards in optimal working order and good repair, with thorough examinations and testing conducted at least every 14 months, and potentially more frequently for high-risk processes.

By adhering to these regulations and partnering with qualified service providers like Holliday Technical Services, laboratories can achieve optimal safety standards while fostering productive research environments.
