ASHRAE 110 Testing

ASHRAE 110 Testing

PSA offers comprehensive testing, certification and maintenance of chemical fume hoods. All testing is performed in accordance with established PSA’s SOPs, which are updated to remain compliant with state, federal and international safety guidelines as well as PSA’s own stringent quality assurance system. Chemical fume hood testing is performed to comply with regulations and standards set forth by OSHA, AIHA/ANSI, SEFA, AABC and ASHRAE.

Primary tests include inflow velocity profiling and airflow smoke testing. These tests provide a qualitative analysis of air capture at the face of the unit, thus demonstrating the unit’s exposure prevention effectiveness and ensuring operator safety. Tracer gas tests to comply with ASHRAE Standard 110 provide quantitative data evaluating the containment performance of fume hoods.

Additional test options include:

  • Calibration and testing of airflow monitors
  • Local and large volume smoke visualization testing
  • Cross-draft testing
  • VAV (variable air-volume) testing
  • Tracer gas containment testing with sulfur hexafluoride.
