This Standard provides requirements for fume cupboards relating to their safety and performance, along with recommendations and procedures for their selection, installation, testing and use.
This edition includes requirements for risk assessment and permits the consideration of manifolded duct systems.
This Standard covers fume cupboards that are intended primarily for use in general chemical operations but may be used for the special applications set out in Appendix D, provided that the additional requirements specified therein are complied with. Recirculating fume cabinets (which recirculate air and do not extract to the outside atmosphere) are not covered by this Standard (see AS/NZS 2243.9).
