Auto Extract Systems can manufacture tailored ‘receiving’ canopy hoods to any required dimensions to suit the requirements of your working processes.
Bespoke canopies are tailormade to your exact needs and requirements and are matched with the air flows required to ensure that your business complies with HSE’s 'HSG258: Controlling Airborne Contaminants at Work: A Guide to Local Exhaust Ventilation (LEV)' regulations and COSHH (Control of Substances Hazardous to Health) 2002 regulations.
HSE HSG258: Controlling Airborne Contaminants at Work: A Guide to Local Exhaust Ventilation (LEV) advises that: “Receiving canopy hoods should be placed as low and close as possible to the process as practically possible so that the risk of rising fumes dispersing out into the workplace or being affected by through-draughts is reduced.”
Whilst the University of Birmingham describes the receiving capture hood as: “The process where the working process provides the energy to deliver the fumes and gases to the canopy hood” (Local Exhaust Ventilation Systems, 2012).
Auto Extract Systems can manufacture tailored ‘receiving’ canopy hoods to any required dimensions to suit the requirements of your working processes. We are fully accustomed to specifying and installing receiving canopy hoods (local exhaust ventilation systems) and can assist your business in the safe removal of harmful fumes and gases from your working processes.
Bespoke canopies should be utilised in conjunction with one of our centrifugal fans to vent the captured fumes either directly to the atmosphere or depending on the working process, via a filtration unit.
