GU17P: Drum Inspection Hood

Category: Worker Health & Safety > Engineering Controls > Drum Hoods
Reference # : GU17P Model No : GU17P

This capture velocity drum hood offers a pre-engineered control for personnel and environmental safety and protection. This mobile capture velocity drum hood facilitates the opening and inspection of 55 gallon drums. The hood incorporates a clear viewing section that extends completely over the drum top, or may be retracted to about 1/2 of the drum top diameter, to facilitate access to drum bungs or inspection of drum contents. Air flow from a separate HEPA filtration unit is drawn into the hood and over the drum top at a capture velocity of about 100-170 FPM. A screen and prefilter installed in the Model GU17P hood arrests materials or particles that enter the inlet plenum prior to exiting the hood and reduces contamination of the flex duct connecting it to the HEPA exhaust unit. In operation, the Drum Hood is positioned over the drum, and the HEPA filtration unit is turned on. A large poly bag is taped to the front of the drum. The drum lid retainer and drum lid (or bung) is removed and slipped into the poly bag. After inspection or sampling, the lid is slipped from the poly bag and placed back onto the drum and secured.


Options: Adjustable height frame legs.
