Are Decommissioned Fume Cupboards Hazardous?

The potential hazards of decommissioned fume cupboards depend heavily on the materials and processes they were used for. At HTS, we prioritise safety throughout the decommissioning process, ensuring responsible handling and minimising risks.

Understanding Potential Hazards:

  • Chemical Residues: Fume cupboards used with hazardous chemicals may require thorough decontamination before they are considered safe for reuse or disposal.
  • Radioisotopes and Perchloric Acid: Specific protocols outlined in your lab guidelines should be strictly followed for decommissioning fume cupboards exposed to these materials.
  • Asbestos-Containing Materials: Older fume cupboards may contain asbestos, requiring specialised removal by qualified personnel if detected. HTS can advise on asbestos disposal as required.

HTS's Safe Decommissioning Approach:

  • Expert Assessment: Our qualified team carefully assesses each fume cupboard, considering its history and potential hazards.
  • Tailored Decontamination: We employ appropriate decontamination methods based on the identified risks, utilising a solution of NaHCO3   to neutralise acids and personal  protective equipment.
  • Compliance with Regulations: We adhere to all relevant regulations and guidelines for safe fume cupboard decommissioning, ensuring environmental and personnel safety.

Beyond Safety:

  • Waste Management: We handle and dispose of waste materials responsibly, following strict regulations in accordance with our licensed waste carriers certificate. Registration Number: CBDU133562.
  • Recycling Opportunities: Where possible, we explore opportunities to recycle components, promoting sustainability and minimising environmental impact.
  • Refurbished Equipment: We offer high-quality, refurbished fume cupboards incorporating where possible components responsibly sourced from decommissioned units, providing eco-friendly alternatives.

Contact HTS Today:

Don't underestimate the importance of safe and responsible fume cupboard decommissioning. Partner with HTS to ensure your process adheres to the highest safety standards, minimises environmental impact, and explores potential opportunities for reuse or refurbishment of your fume cupboards.

When Is It Time to Replace a Fume Cupboard or Ductwork?

Fume cupboards are critical laboratory equipment, and their optimal performance directly impacts safety and efficiency. At HTS, we understand the importance of keeping your fume cupboards functioning at their best. While some units can last for decades, determining the right time for replacement requires careful consideration.

Signs It Might Be Time for a New Fume Cupboard:

  • Decreased Face Velocity: If annual testing by HTS reveals your fume cupboard no longer achieves its intended airflow rate (face velocity), this can signify compromised containment and reduced safety. In some cases, adjustments or repairs may be possible, but replacement might be necessary to ensure optimal performance.
  • Frequent Breakdowns: If your fume cupboard experiences frequent malfunctions, repairs become costly, and downtime disrupts workflows. Replacing the unit might be more cost-effective in the long run.
  • Outdated Design: Older fume cupboards might not meet current safety standards or lack features important for modern laboratory practices. Upgrading to a newer model can enhance safety, efficiency, and user experience.
  • Changing Laboratory Needs: If your laboratory processes or materials have evolved, your fume cupboard's features or size might no longer be suitable. Upgrading to a more appropriate model can optimise airflow, safety, and workflow.

Beyond Replacement:

  • Annual Testing and Maintenance: Regular testing by HTS helps identify potential issues early and can extend the lifespan of your fume cupboard through timely repairs and maintenance.
  • Repair and Refurbishment: HTS offers cost-effective repair and refurbishment options that can address specific issues and extend the life of your existing fume cupboard.
  • Upgrade Options: If replacement is necessary, HTS provides a wide range of high-performance fume cupboards tailored to your specific needs and budget.

Partnering with HTS:

Choosing the right course of action requires expert guidance. HTS offers:

  • Transparent Assessments: We provide honest and objective assessments of your fume cupboard's condition and performance, recommending the most cost-effective solution.
  • Comprehensive Expertise: Our team possesses in-depth knowledge of fume cupboard technology and regulations, ensuring you make informed decisions.
