The Esco Frontier™ PVC Acid Digestion Fume Hood is designed for ensuring operator safety when performing acid digestion applications. This specialized fume hood is built with unplasticised polyvinylchloride (u-PVC) internal surfaces, including the work surface. The superior chemical resistance of the u-PVC interior liner enables it to withstand the use of very concentrated acids used in acid digestion applications*. It is available also in Polypropylene (PP). The sash window is polycarbonate, not glass, since glass is easily etched by hydrofluoric acid, a common acid used. Esco includes many features in the design of cabinets such as this to provide optimal safety and user comfort.
