Fume Hood Airflow Alarm

Do you need a reliable Fume Hood Alarm that easily installs on your existing fume hood or biosafety cabinet?

There are a lot of different brands and types of fume hoods and biosafety cabinets. Some come with integrated alarm systems, but many don’t. Now, with so many regulations like NSF-49/ANSI, USP 797, and USP 800 requiring alarming capability, lab managers are left in a bind. Short of buying new critical containment equipment, they’re looking for ways to make their existing equipment compliant.

That’s precisely why DegreeC developed The Rooster™. Designed to be a cost-effective and easy retrofit option, this system is the fast, reliable, and affordable! The Rooster™ fume hood alarm provides you with full-time tracking of air velocity within fume hoods and biosafety cabinets and ensures that airflow never falls below thresholds defined by the user.

What is a Fume Hood Airflow Alarm?

Airflow within chemical fume hoods or biosafety cabinets is critical for proper exhaust of potentially harmful fumes and ensures the safety of staff. A Fume Hood Airflow Alarm allows the user to define the acceptable airflow thresholds and the alarm will sound if those parameters are not met.

Airflow Monitoring and Alarm Systems

Airflow monitoring and alarm systems can be integrated for applications where improper air conditions pose a safety hazard. Examples include critical containment applications with chemical fume hoods, biological safety cabinets, or laminar flow hoods. In these cases, status and alarms are communicated to building and laboratory systems.

Retrofit alarm helps you achieve OSHA or NSF-49/ANSI compliance.
